HI. if this unit isn't powering up, it could be an issue with the power supply board. To confirm this diagnosis, i would unplug this unit from the surge protector for about 5 minutes. once the 5 minutes are up, plug the unit into a regular wall socket. If the unit doesn't power back up after being unplugged for 5 minutes, this will confirm the power supply failure. you can order another power supply board form the manufacture or, you can simply send the unit back to Sony for this repair as well. If this unit is not plugged into a surge protector, it may have received a surge of some sort.

Please rate and god bless:)

My sdtv stopped working?

Did your receiver stop working all together or did only a specific output stop working. When you say "sdtv" what exactly is this reffering to, the SD output of the unit? You may want to try replacing your cables or checking that they are properly connected.

My brother model 732 machine's lamp blew as I was sewing. It has now decided to stop working all together. Any ideas what the problem might be??

The machine may have experienced a power-surge and fried the whole thing. If that's the case the lamp blowing and the machine stopping would occurred very close together.

Take the cables off the battery. Touch the two cables together (away from battery) and them together for 15 seconds. PUT POS CABLE BACK ON FIRST. Then neg cable. If this does work, cluster will need to be replaced.

Light wont come on

  • Make sure drivers are installed.
  • Ensure USB ports are enabled in BIOS.
  • Try a different USB plug.
I had an older version of this adapter. One day it just stopped working all together and nothing I did got it to work, on any computer. If the above steps don't resolve your problem, the adapter may have just stopped working all together.
