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

if you are getting for the first 15 minutes or so lines or noise left to right on the screen that does go away (but is taking longer as time passes) you have a Hyper board failing---Google that for your set.

My Sony rear Projection tv the sound is coming on but no picture, then it turns itself off, cheers jUlie

Bad grounds are your problem. This TV is aging and suffering form time. You will need to rework the power supply, check your capacitors and grounds. You will need to purchase an ESR meter to locate and replace capacitors. The next thing is to locate the vertical IC. By now this IC has pins that are separated from the grounds. You will see rings around the vertical IC pins on the solder side of the board. Once again search the main board for bad grounds on ICs mounted to heat sinks, power resistors,capacitors, diodes, jumpers, transistors and most certainly the flyback transformer and the horizontal transformer. I feel this TV can still be saved from recycling. Any one with electronics experience knows what I am talking about. If you can not do this find a TV tech, or a hobbiest. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

My wide screen projection tv is 2002 model and first thing in the morning when it is turned on it shows double menus and pictures until it warms up. what can you help me with?

It sounds like your bulb is starting to go bad. It's actually very surprising you haven't had this problem earlier, as some bulbs will only last a few years.

You can take it to a repair shop and have your bulb replaced, but it sounds like you have a little bit of time before the bulb makes your TV unwatchable.

The tv just randomly turns off by itself

Check to see how many times it blinks when turning off and then look for the codes for Sony tv blinks. this will tell you what's wrong. This set is notorious for Shorted tubes.

My Sony Trinitron TV does not show picture. The standby light comes on and blinks 7 times then pauses and then blinks 7 times. This continues to repeat itself. TV never shows picture or sound. Light...

The usual cause of this is the sensing IC (there are 2 of them) on the power supply board. Sony usually recommends pulling the board and returning it to them for service.
