Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Sony Trinatron -for quite some time I have been getting an egg timer type picture when I turn on the TV. By wiggling the arial plug in the back of the set I have often been able to return the picture to a normal one. Now all I get is a very dark screen with lots of static sound & lines. Wiggling the arial makes no difference. I can still watch Videos and DVD's. The TV set is about 10-12 yrs old. any idea if this wld be fixable or shld I just throw it out?

Your problem is simple! The government has recently (in about the past month) required all tv stations to broadcast in digital. You can get 2 $20 credits to get a converter for your arial. You can just throw it out and get a new one, which will recieve in digital. Or you can buy a converter for your TV, using those credits. I'm not sure how how to get the credits.

Here's my suggestion , unhook all the external components to the TV and leave the TV unplugged for more than a few minutes (a day/overnight). The next day plug the TV into the wall outlet (not the powerstrip) without anything hooked up to it, and turn it on. See if it comes on. Sometimes unplugging for a few minutes/hours is not long enough for it to reset itself.

hi. if any of the little copper bits are tutching the fat bit of copper in the middle of the arial that go into the back of the tv you wont get a picture and you might not have the right conecting bit from the arial to the tv as you get male and female ones. or you mite need to retune your t.v as evrything has gone digital and if something has interupted it. it will need retuneing and will need a satalite or a channel 5 arial. hope it helps thanks sean

YOU NEED TO GET INTO THE CONSUMER MENU AND ACTIVATE THE AUTO PROGRAMM MODE. I BELIEVE WALMART CARRIES A UNIVERSAL SONY REMOTE WHICH WILL ALLOW YOU INTO THE MENU.

Sony 27" picture quality


You probably have a leaky or open electrolytic capacitor in the vertical circuit. This will require troubleshooting by a repair specialist, unless you can obtain a diagram and do a little spy work with an oscilloscope
