Question about Sony FD Trinitron KV-28FQ75 28" TV

1 Answer

Sony kd28dx40u After about half hour of my tv being on, my tv makes a cracking sound so bad that you can't hear the people on tv speaking. After switching tv off for a while then putting it back on it is ok for a while then it starts cracking again. What could be wrong with my tv as it is only three years old.

Re: Sony kd28dx40u

It seems that there is EHT Leakage from the EHT Transformer Anode Cap! Generally happens during rainy seasons, or if your TV is placed near a window or near an AC, due to excess of moisture in the air. Unplug the TV and wait for an hour to discharge all residual charge in Capacitors. Open the back, and look for a thick red cable leading from the FBT. (It is a Black Block with a thick red cable running from it to the rear of the Picture Tube). Take a sturdy Electrical cable with the conductor visible at both ends. (Multimeter Leads will do.) Now, ground one end of this lead to any Metal part of the Chassis, and gently ease the other end under the Cap of the EHT Cable. BE VERY CAREFUL, as there are very High Voltages involved! Do it Gently, and you will hear a POP! This indicates that the Electrical Charge inside tha Picture has been discharged. Now Take dry cloth and wipe clean the area around the Anode Cap. Close the back of the TV, and switch it ON. In all likelihood your problem should be resolved. BUT, I REPEAT, DO NOT DO THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING, AND ARE VERY VERY CAREFUL. Otherwise, seek professional help!

I have a sony trintitron model kv20fs12 that i just bought used.A few of the channels have audio only during commercials. When the show comes on it has no sound. One channel has background noise such as...

Check your TV's audio settings and make sure it's not set for SAP (second audio program). You'll probably find it's turned on. On many channels or programs you won't notice anything since the broadcast doesn't include a SAP signal. But if the signal's there, the set switches to that sound channel and you have the trouble you describe.

The problem you might run into is that you often need the original remote to control the audio settings. I don't remember for sure if your Sony model has front-panel menu control. I believe that series does, though. (The remotes included with most TV sets usually have a single button to control SAP, which is often how the settings get changed in the first place. Someone hits the button and doesn't know it.)

Hope this takes of your mystery sound! Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a sony 32'' I think. model # KV-32FS10, serial #8047927, made Jan 2000. During a move, the tv was dropped and now when you press the power, your hear the click, the red click light flashes...

It sounds like that in the drop you may have cracked the main PCB. The PCB's usually crack around the heaviest part of the PCB. Probably around the flyback transformer.

My sony trinitron won't come on

From your description it sounds like you TV is experiencing a shut down and re-set condition. This is usually caused by some type of voltage irregularity in the power supply section of the TV. Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix and will require a trip to the shop. Get an estimate before approving repair. In the new world of disposable electronics the cost of repair may exceed the value of the set. Keep in mind that TV components are most prone to failure during the electrical surge when you turn the TV on. So constantly pushing the on button will accelerate a permanent failure.

Sony Wega kv27FV310 standby flashes 2 times with no picture or sound

3 years ago, i had the same problem with a samsung 36", when i switched it on it would stay on for around half an hour, i tried to switch on straight away, but it wouldnt, i had to leave it for an hour or so, then it would stay on for about 5 minutes. And the same thing the next day (half an hour then 5 minutes). I left it into the repair shop, it had to get a circuit board replaced at a cost of £315, dont know how much it will cost to get fixed now, as i could buy the same tv for a little over that now.

The easiest thing to try is placing a different speaker in the set and let it play for as long as it takes the other to give you a bad sound,the speaker in the set has to be totally disconected and the wires attached to the speaker you are trying.The speaker has an OHm value ussually 8 ohms,use one that has the same rating,just to try this is does not have to be one that fits like the other in the cabinet,once you discover if is the speaker giving you problems you can order the exact replacement from the factory.Be careful when removing the back cover and make sure the set is unplug from the wall.
