the sound is great, but the picture has gone to gray with horizontal white lines across the screen. It is 20 years old, and probably not worth fixing, but i will ask anyway, just in case it is a simple fix.


Hello Sat, hi, its a failure of the horizontal output transistor responsible for high voltage. This transistor is needed to be replaced. you need a TV tech guy to have this fixed. have it checked first, the trouble is common to CRT type TV really easy to fix. for a tech guy.

Sony Trinitron: No Picture


It is likely the HOT (horizontal output transistor) and a couple of associated capacitors.
common failure.
the HOT is around 8.00 and some for the caps.
but almost no tv person works for less than 100. and provides a warranty. so you can expect 150. at least for a bill.

The HOT transistor is shutting it down. (horizontal output transistor)
it cost about 8.00 for the parts and 100 for the labor.

you will require help from a tech.

TV WILL NOT COME ON - TV Chirps when you plug it in


The F25432 uses the CTC203 series chassis. The most common cause of the picture being intermittent is poor solder joints on the small coil connected to the base of the horizontal output transistor. These cracked solder joints will eventually cause the horizontal output transistor to short, and the power supply will "squeel" when plugged in. If you have experience working on TV's then you can try resoldering the joints on that coil and checking/replacing the horizontal output transistor. If you do not have experience working on TV's then allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.
