Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32FS120 32" TV
I bought a 32" sony trinitron from a garage sale and have had it for about three weeks. While watching yesterday the screen went blank but the sound was still working fine. I changed channels through my cabe box and could hear it change channles but still no picture. I truned it off for a couple minutes and had a picture when I turned it back on. It worked the rest of the night. After watching it this morning for about an hour the screen went blank again with the sound working. I again turned it off for a couple of minutes and when I truned it back on, it again was working. I have had it on watching football all day and it is working just fine. Is the T.V. trying to tell me something? When the tubes start to go do they act this way and it is worth paying to get it fixed? Is it a simple process to fix, I am pretty handy, just do not know much about electronics and I do not like working on things I cannot see (electricity) for one......
What should I do? I didn't pay but $40 for it. Not sure what year or model, but it sure does make a nice compliment to the living room.
Couple of things:
1) When the picture "stops", does the standby light blink at all?
2) Can you post the model number please?
Some of these sets are known to have problems with the picture tube as it starts to age. There are some workarounds for this that can extend the life of the set for a short time. Without the model number though, I can't confirm that this set is in that catagory. Please supply responses to the issues above and we'll continue from there.
