Question about Sony KP-61HS20 TV

1 Answer

Loss of picture

While watching television, it looked like some one had taken a light pen or eraser and scribled across the screen the the picture was gone. I unplugged it for an hour thinking that it may be over heated. When plugged back in the power indicator flashes but no picture.

Re: loss of picture

When the power indicator flashes on a Sony it is saying "Hey, I lost high voltage". You are probably going to need a new Horizontal Output Transistor, a flyback transformer and possibly a High Voltage Block. None of the parts are that expensive from Tritronics ( I just got them the other day for less than $100. You're better off just replacing everything mentioned rather than doing it piecemeal, once and done. I don't know whether you're capable of this repair or not. If you aren't sure have a professional do it. If you are going to proceed, remember safety! TVs are dangerous. Good luck.

Red cirle in the center of my screen durning dark scenes

This sounds like the light engine has gone bad or has dust/dirt in the light tunnel or DMD assembly. The light engine would have to be removed to check for dirt. If the engine is bad it can cost over $800 just for the engine not including shop charge. Unit would need to be taken to a repair shop to find out what is actually causing the problem.

Hello im having problems with my sony wega

It sounds like you have a loss of green. This could be caused by the green gun in the picture tube opening up or the drive circuit for the green gun gone bad. Stargazer

Tv not working

this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!
