Why won't Sony Bravia, Model KDL-32L4000 power up/turn on?
After using the remote control to turn the TV off, it failed to turn back on using either the remote or the switch on the set, itself. Replaced batteries in remote, no change. All plugs were given a nudge to assure proper contact into the unit.
I have unplugged the unit from the breaker strip and plugged directly into the wall. (Other items on that breaker strip and the outlet are functioning normally.)
I have seen references to a power saver switch at the Sony troubleshooting site- do not find one on this unit.
This unit is most often turned off/on by remote. The laser receptor is not blocked by items on the TV cabinet.
Any suggestions? Too big for a doorstop and after 5 years service, I'd think it would be functioning. (My last TV was a 1965 vintage console that finally died in 2006)
Es esta una buena pregunta?
Thanks Blair and Oldturkey! OT, I'm with you on the challenge and satisfaction of repairing things. For the moment, I'm going to pack the unit away until I can make/take the time to do the exploration suggested by OT. No new tv, here. May just go without. Radical idea, I know...

No TV? OMG that would definitely be something radical ;-) You would miss all those "reality shows".....:-) actually I think that is a great idea. Best of luck to you and let us know how you are coming along once you start working on the repair.

:) There is life with out a cable, without a tv schedule- Have been without both for almost two years and love the time that it has given me back to L. I. V. E. I do pull in an average of two tv shows a week on computer; maybe watch two videos in that same week's time. "In a year will it matter that I ......?" a question I ask self when ever spending $ or the even more precious time. Thanks, again for your help- I will get back with you on the project when I get it back on the priority list. Grateful for this site and the help given!
