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.

Sony kdp-57ws550. Turn on tv = no picture, have


You have to count how many times it blinks. It is a service code. The main thing that goes on these is the convergence chips. If you had the back off doing any type of repair, recheck your plugs. Odds are, you crossed one.

The standby/timer is flashing 6 times on my Sony KP-53HS30 TV


no the 6 blinks indicates a missing voltage. If your talking about a sony lcd KD or KE model you probably have a bad thermal fuse. You must also clean or change the Lamp fan so it won't blow again.

TV screen won't turn on only sound


Good day, cjnewcarguy;
If you like new cars you may enjoy a new LCD Flat Panel TV. Try unplugging the TV for about 2-3 minutes, plug back in. Working... no?? The average repair cost of projection TV is about $400.00 to $550.00.
Good luck, big IRISH.

Sony trinatron dropped!


If you dropped the set you have probably cracked the circuit board around the Fylback transformer or other places on the board. You should get a technician to look it over.
