Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-30HS420 30" TV

1 Answer

Haywire TV When turned on, the TV faded to red then turned off with a 7 blink code or 5 blink code. While it is on for the 15 seconds or so, the video is bowed on the top, the raster is visible, the TV seems stuck in the full screen mode and won't accept HD inputs and displays frozen snow on the HD channels. The tech adjusted G2 and one other point to get the TV to stay on but was stumped by the rest. I do have some general TV repair experience, apparently as much or more than the tech that was sent out, but these are beyond me. I've tried the remote control resets and the service mode resets with no luck. The TV is only 18 months old and I'm not paying $600 or more to fix a $900 TV.

Your missing a voltage is all. Its in the power supply or the hi voltage supply. If your a tech then you know of the hi voltage dangers in this set even when its turned off!! if you wanna trouble shoot this correctly go to Howard W Sams and get a service manual, Its available for 55.00 And see whats going on in the set. If you take the set in the servicer will need to purchace or already have this manual . Good Luck

I have a Plasma TV with black screen and 6 red light flashes.


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

Follow these instrutions exactly to place your set in SDM Mode.
For sets that still have video do the following.
  1. Turn your TV on
  2. Using the original Philips TV remote press the following keys. Press each key for 1 sec then press the next.
  3. From the remote press 0 6 2 5 9 6 MENU
  4. You should now see the letters "SDM" in the far right hand corner.
  5. If not do step "3' again.
  6. To display the error code hit the "Status" button on your remote.
  7. The TV can store up to "7" past errors.

For sets that have no video do the following.
  1. Turn your TV on
  2. Using the original Philips TV remote press the following keys. Press each key for 1 sec then press the next.
  3. From the remote press 0 6 2 5 9 6 MENU
  4. Wait a few seconds. The red power light should begin to blink.
  5. The blinking sequence will determine the error code.
  6. You will have one long 5 second red blink followed by the error code.
Note: On some sets the TV will automaticaly blink the error code when its powered up without having to go into the SDM menu. If you power light blinks after the set is powered up jot down the sequence.
Example Error Codes from the power light.
( RED 5 Seconds ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) = Error Code 3
Example #2
( RED 5 Seconds ) off ( RED 1 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) = Error Code 12

KP-57WS500 TV FADES TO SOLID RED W/ LINES A FEW SECONDS AFTER I TURN IT ON


Red CRT is doing short circuit in the neck. You can try to open the front panel and to hit easy the neck with wood or something and to decrease the red screen a bit. If doesn't work then replace the CRT.
