My Sony TV does not turn on w/the remote. I just had a new DVR installed by xfinity, but the cable people said it was probably the TV. The cable box does turn on and seems to be operating correctly, but TV does not turn on.

Hello and sorry you're having problems.

Can you please get me the mode number off of the back of the set?

Also, how long have you owned it for?

Are there currently ANY signs of life on the TV at all (power light lit or blinking, etc.)?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
