Sony tv - kvxr29m50

Hi,
This is my 1st post & appreciate enrolling me into this forum.

My TV suddenly won't start. When I press the ON sw, it just makes a click and even the ON light won't come.
What could be the issue/ Is it just a fuse?

Welcome to the forums from Sri Lanka.

That's an older 29" tube style TV.... correct ?

If you hear a clicking when you push the power button then it's a power supply failure. Unfortunately it's not a DIY repair unless you are familiar with electronics servicing.

At the very least you would need a schematic/service manual to work on the set. The service manual should be available for purchase online but then you would need a VOM test meter to check parts.

So your best option might be to take it to a repair center. I'm not sure on the price of electronic equipment there but make sure the cost to repair doesn't exceed the cost to purchase a new LED/LCD TV. I'm sure the repair center can advise you.

Well, I've already downloaded a service manual. But electronics is not my turf.
As suggested i'll try a TV repair centre & see.

I'll bet the service manual looks more confusing to you then a road map.

I was checking into it further. There are a series of steps you could follow but they do require a meter.

At least see what the repair centre says and go from there.
