I've got a 5-6 year old 46" Bravia: Model KDL-46BX450.

I've got a 5-6...

I've got a 5-6 year old 46" Bravia: Model KDL-46BX450. Remote will not turn on the TV even after changing the batteries. Indicator light on the front of the TV stays red. Is the manual off/on button the top one on the right side of the TV? If so, that's not turning it on either.

Technician's Assistant: Is your Bravia connected to a surge protector or power strip?

Thnx.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried to power reset your TV (unplugging the power for 1-2 minutes, then plugging it back in)?

Tried that - now not even the red "off" light comes on.

No thanks.

Sorry to hear that, this test also confirmed it is TV internal failure, a possible cause is either power supply board or the mainboard problem, sorry for this news.

It needs further troubleshooting inside the TV with a multimeter to check standby 3.3V on power supply board, if the meter shows 3.3V DC reading then the mainboard is defective and needs to be replaced. If standby 3.3V reading isn't available then it is power supply board failure that will be replaced to resolve the problem.

Please check the following link to view power supply and mainboard image and part number info to search/ google it if you have a plan to work on it yourself

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue. I trust my input will help you out to make the decision about this TV repair or invest that money in new replacement TV
