    My problem is rather the same but the picture tubes show a horizontal line across the top, this does not show on the screen itself but when I am looking into the tubes when I turn on the power the lines appear indicating that the tubes receive some type of high voltage but no video signal to display.

    First I have checked the capacitors in the poser supply board and hove only found one bad or low capacitor of 1000 mf that read 850mf and replaced it.
    I have also checked the capacitors around the vertical I.C. in the board where the stk's are and they seemed ok.

    A problem I noticed was that when I changed a capacitor in the board where the flyback transformer is located, I broke a line that lead to the (h)+ plug on the board, this problem caused the picture tubes to not turn on at all when I re-connected the tv. this capacitor is near the large transformer that is not the flyback transformer.

Your problem is a defect with the b+ going to the crt driver transistors such as a capacitor off the High voltage tranformer or could be a coil or resistor that changed value in the filiment curcuit. This is another hard one to say without more info. if yuo dont do any troubleshooting or dont have the know how then Im thinking its best that you call a pro.. Good Luck

Tv turns on but takes about 20 minutes to show the picture

This is the picture tube. If you check shops you can find one that has a picture tube restorer. If they run just the cleaning process it will buy you some time. This is good some times for up to a year

Tried turning on my Sony and no picture no sound, just a black screen

Sony is known for having problems with the picture tube. Sometimes it will blink on and off. also bad connections on the main board. A CRT restorer will sometimes help with picture tube problems but this must be done by a tech that has one.

Delay to see the picture

Your power supply is going south, I have an old sony with the same problem. The voltage level drops and does not have enough 'kick' to start. It will work better when it is warm. The module will need to be replaced.

Had power surge? When plugging in or turning on the unit I hear clicking. No picture.

Mine had the continuous blinking , and sometimes 2 blinks after trying to turn it on again. I was given the tv and after checking it out found two blown T3.15 amp glass fuses on the audio amp. T for time delay. I went to a recycle center and bought two complete chassis for my model kp53s25. I started changing the standby power supply first. Still did the same thing. I changed the high voltage board with the smaller transformer only and leaving the other larger high voltage transformer in the set. I just cut and spliced the single connecting high voltage line between the two high voltage transformers. Still had the same problem. I change the audio board and the set would work until I believe the audio board heated up or had an intermitant short and the tv would shut down. I replaced the full audio board with another and now the tv stays on and is working great. There seems to be a overheating problem with the sony audio board and i may buy a muffin fan to fit over the audio boards large heat sinks for added cooling in the rear right hand corner of the tv . Touching the heat sinks after tv has been on a while is very warm. Find a recycle center as I bought the parts I needed for 10 dollars for two complete chassis. I should have keep the color projection tubes.
