Customer Question
My sony tv will...

My sony tv will not work. I have tried to turn it on but every time I push the on button. A little red light turns on and the screen won't light up.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your tv, and has turning it on been a problem in the past?

I'm not too sure of the model it is. And this is the first that the problem has been.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

It's been going on for a while. I've tried to unplug it and plug it back in and use the remote
