Re: please help

It sounds like the picture is rolling. Unfortainatly, there is no vertical hold in this unit, and therefore theres a vertical sync problem. It could be a capacitor, as i've seen this in other sets or something in the sync separator circuit. Since this set has no user serviceable parts inside this set, your gonna have to seek out a pro tech to assit you with this repair. Theres no board to swap out in this model and would cost to much to do this. Good Luck

It keeps flashing between flashing lights regards


The TV stays in standby because protection circuit kicked in.

Protection kicks in when an internal fault had been detected.

In your case the SCART cable may have caused a short.

When on protection the TV will stay in standby, will not respond to buttons or remote, and will not start up.
All higher voltages from PSU get shut down by controller board, and only the +5V remains on.

To attempt resetting the TV, disconnect all video cables, disconnect the power cord, wait about one hour and plug it back.

If TV does not restart, then there may be an internal fault.

In that case leave TV unplugged for longer, just in case.

If still no luck, then call Sony to discuss a repair. The number is listed on your owner manual.

If instead TV will restart, do not use the faulty video cable again, this can damage your TV.

Some things are better to have an in-home TV repair man come and look at. This is defiantly one of those occasions. Check to make sure all your cables are secure. Trade inputs with your devices such as your DVD player, cable box, ect. If you are still having a problem call a repair man.

Plays dvds on xbox 360 fine, but no picture for games/dashboard

already solved it. thanks. i couldn't see the xbox settings blade because of the blank screen so switched my component cable to the tv setting instead of the hdtv setting, then i could see the dashboard in non-hd and switched the resolution to 720p while simultaneously switching the component cable back to the hdtv setting. that worked.

Wide screen adjustment does not hold keeps going to default narrow screen


Most analogue TV's do this because the analogue signal has no way to tell the TV that its a widescreen picture.

European TV's that use scart cables have a switching pin on the cable so the digital set top box can tell the TV that the picture is widescreen.

If you're in the US or down under this info wont be much help though.

Hope this helps

The color keeps going out

The repair tech used cheap parts or did not replace both convergence chips.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.
