About 5 years ago, I was servicing many of these sets under a warranty service contract. This series of set is fairly complex to work on. It takes a very experienced tech who knows this model series very well to work on these.

After 4 to 5 years it is very possible that the picture tube (CRT) may be weak, and there can be fault conditons in the power supply and scan circuits. Most of the time, these sets are not feasable to service when out of warranty and there are major component failures. Considering that it is a CRT set proprietary replacement parts are not usually available from the manufactures. CRT sets are no longer being produced.

Technicaly, if you want to pay the cost and if the proprietary type replacement parts can be found, your set can be serviced by an experienced Sony service technician. When your set was in production a new factory replacement CRT alone was in the price range of $1200. This does not include the 3 to 4 hours of labour to replace it. If the flyback and horizontal output transistor has to be replaced along with a number of capacitors, you can add on at least another $300 to $500 minimum. Out of the shop a CRT job with a repair can cost about 1/2 the price of its new value!

For much less than what you say you paid for your set, you can get a new LCD or Plasma HDTV for about 1/2 of what you paid. Believe me, if you go for a high end Plasma or Sony set of today it will outperform your CRT set.

It wont turn on anymore. it fires then instantly shuts off, doesnt even flash screen. standby lights still flash and its trying to turn on, just cant get on. you can hear the on sound and then the tv...


Depending on the age of your tv, if you hear a rapid clicking, it seems like your ballast is starting to turn on your tv but it's not able to. (1) Check your lamp, (2) reset the lamp timer, (3) make sure the cover panel is all the way. the positioning sensor might not be detecting the cover all the way in.
Personally I think you're experiencing a ballast problem.

Light blinks 7 times when i try to turn it on. sony kv 36xbr800


Are you sure it isn't eight......try turning on this method....display, 5, vol+, power on. Should bring it on in the diagnostic mode. Mine and about kazillion other owners have the same problem, bad M board and they never issued a recall on it. Costs 2-300 to have someone repair it, cause its' too heavy to carry it in, I think they used cement in the bottom for weight.

36xbr800 sometimrs will turn on sometimes won't


it may be open contact on the flyback or
bad solder in standby power supply

Give it a smack open hand on the side
or better yet if you can have someone press
the power button as you rock it back and forth
this can tell you if its bad solder some times.
