Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m Jack and I will be helping you todayPlease note that I am an independent tech. that depends on your positive rating to get paid by this website and I have no control over the phone (or other) offers , they are sent by the website ,not by me but let me know if you`d rather do this on the phone.
First thing to try ;
Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for a couple of minutes before you try it again.
Did you unplug it as I suggested ?
Is it only the HOME button that shuts off the tv or there are others ?
For some reason right now I cannot find a manual on this tv that would show me its controls but is there a HOME button on the tv itself ?
Doesn`t look good for the TV's main board and its software
How old is this tv now ?
Well , I don't know the rules and regulations in Poland but around here you would be entitled to an exchange or refund by law , not a repair .
I will give you a link where you can download and if possible install a new firmware and if that doesn`t do it then with the info there you should be able to claim the warranty .
Your tv is defective , there is no adjust , programming or wiring that causes this .
For that matter , do not touch the firmware yet and try to have it replaced by the store that sold it to you
Here is that link for the firmware ; http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/product/KD-55S8505C#Manuals
