Question about Protron PDV-228 Portable DVD Player
The jungle chip is the main IC processor. It is very complicated and has hundreds of circuits surrounding its complexity. The jungle chip has over 1 million transistors inside and it performs dozens of important functions.
The testing of the horizontal sweep function requires technical knowledge of how the circuits work and interact with each other. There are over 100 components that will need to be tested or looked at. A voltmeter and oscilloscope are necessary to signal trace the horizontal signals from the pedestal strip from the IF to the jungle chip and out to the horizontal sweep and synchronization circuits.
If you go to:
and scan down you will find a service manual download for a model Sony KV32FV15.zip. It is a huge file and will take long time to download, but it contains schematics, parts list and so on. This model is similar to your model and close enough for general troubleshooting. If you have technical skills in circuitry and schematic interpretation it may be useful for you. At least you can get the part numbers for the jungle chip and the horizontal sweep area.
Also, if you go to this web page, it will give you a little more information on the 6 blink diagnostics - again, they are for another model set, but close enough for general guidance on all Sony models:
Hope this helps get you started.
