Question about Sony KV-35S42 35" TV

Picture is there briefly then goes black with sleep timer blinking

The picture starts up fine. But after a couple of minutes the screen gets lines through it and shrinks then goes black. I can hear what is on fine. I have even tried putting the direct tv receiver in other outputs with no sucess. This tv is for my 7 year old daughter so any suggestions would really help.

The television is shutting itself off to protect itself. The blinking light is a code pattern. The specific code determines whether or not you need an LCD Controller Unit, Main Board, power supply or something else. You would need the service manual. There are parts distributors you can get it from and the parts as well. If soldering and tv repair is not something you are entirely familiar you may want to seek a tv repair person. The manufacturer's support may walk you through the service menus to complete a factory reset depending upon the symptoms.

SANYO TV Picture


I just bought a new Sanyo DP19649 and we can watch it for about 15 minutes then the screen goes black but the sou nd stays on. We have to turn it off and turn it back on to get the picture back for another 15 minutes-then it's the same thing all over again. The sleep mode is off and it isn't on automatic shutoff.

Black line on middle of screen


Hopefully you still have under warrantee. If not, sorry. This line if memory serves me right is because the tv has 2 picture panels on each side of the TV (they join up together to make one picture). Toshiba did not realize that the panels will start slipping thus creating this fine line from the top of the screen to the bottom. They have revamped the newer models and placed glass to adhere the panels together. Even though my TV was under warrantee I got a new one and have had this one for 1/2 year and now the picture just blew (there is sound but no picture.)
Take your TV back if it is under warrantee.

Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking


This should be a quick fix. Try resoldering the vertical IC. This is a small flat IC attached to a heat sink with about 11 pins. It should be marked LA7837 or something similar. That should resolve the problem.

Keep us posted.

Picture blinks in and out every few seconds


The lines in the picture and the blinking makes me think maybe the digital / logic board is going bad.. you will need a tech to resolve this and it will be expensive.. In time you will loss the picture altogether as the board will get worse.

Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking


The most common problem (I have fixed lots) is the Vertical amplifier has developed a loose connection. It probably just needs resoldering. As things expand it makes and looses connection you picture goes in and out. The vertical chip is a large black chip that gets hot, over time it degrades the solder until a connection is damaged. Most newer sets have a protection circuit that senses the lack of height, and shuts down the picture tube to save it. When the picture dropped to a line on older TVs and left that way too long it would burn a line into the face of the picture tube. You then had to have the picture tube replaced along with the vertical amp. it's kinda like a screensaver for your TV.
