Sony Videoscope XBR 53

Hi, I saw someone else had a similar problem to mine and you tried to help them so I figured I ask you also. I have a Sony Videoscope XBR 53" XP53XBR45 TV. I'm also getting bowing. Mine bows on the top, bottom and right side. and I'm getting triple images. I hears it could be a convergence problem. If so, is this something that needs an adjustment or a new part? I heard that there isn't any parts available for this TV anymore. Thanks..

    Thanks Abrsvcs. Got a call from Sound Advice and they're saying they can't get any parts for the TV and it can't be fixed, They won't even come out and look at it.

    Dan, Thanks for the info. I called another repair place and told them what you said it needs and they said they'd fix it at my house for $350.00.. I can't solder to save my life. I guess I'm more like the Sound Advice guys.. LOL Is that a good price? I really hate to put money in this old TV. I bought it new in 97 and it's been repaired a million damn times. All under warranty though.. I have to pay for this one.. I never had luck with Sony TV's.. If I were to decide to get a new one, What's a good on to buy? I'd like to stay close to the 53" size.. I hear DLP isn't the way to go.. I hear the bulbs don't last long at all and cost a lot to replace.

This is a convergence problem. Look in the back for a couple of large black ICs attached to a heatsnik. These should be marked STKxxx. These are the convergence ICs and either have bad connections or are defective. If you can solder, try resoldering the pins on these ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. There may be other parts that need to be replaced as well. I'll look up your model to find the other parts to check. The convergence board as an assembly, I believe, is no longer available. The parts that you require are available.

    They are board swappers. Trey looking for the ICs and list the marking here. This can be fixed and shouldn't be too expensive either. More to follow...

    Look for the ICs I mentioned. They are STK392-010 and are available for about $20 each.

would think you need to replace the cable board etc. the signal is not getting in and out right. can also be a fault on the power board giving the wrong volts so would check this to. it will tell you on the board what volts is supposed to be. the 5v and 12v should be spot on other volts will vary a little. also check the capacitors for the caps to be bowed up and a brown/ yellow gunk around them and under the board this can be a sign they are failing.

My sony videoscope XBR tv has a pink picture and no control. Also nothing is in enlish.


the model listed is a very old set---parts may not be available----language can be selected in the menu but the pink may be a adjustment of the screens (controls) or a circuit problem.

HI I have a 1998 Sony Videoscope XBR 53 in. Projection TV. When you turn it on the sound is fine but sometimes the picture comes right on and sometimes it can take hours. Can anyone give me some advice....


hello well it's and old tv, my guess it could be capacitors in the power supply or even dry joints on the power supply board, it would be best to have someone with electronic experience to have a look at it

TV has sound no picture, Sony Videoscope xbr


Please post both the exact model number (on the back) and the blink count. The standby light should be blinking a repeated pattern. That info will indicate the problem circuit and allow us to provide you with the proper parts/steps to resolve this.

Thanks,
Dan

Might be a bad High Voltage Distribution block, you will want to call a trained tech to diagnose something a little knowledge can be dangerous with stuff like this.
