Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA XBRKV-40XBR800 40" TV

1 Answer

Picture problems I was given a sony kv-40xbr700 and the picture has some discoloration down the sides which I think may be from the speaker magnets in the side of the cabinet. Also, the picture seems to be shifted slightly down and to the left. Are these problems repairable and if so would the tv be worth repairing?

First thing I would try is a degaussing coil. The problem was not caused by the speakers in the TV (they are magnetically shielded) but by some kind of external magnetic field, like speakers or refrigerator magnets. Could also explain the picture shift, if it's severe enough and someone used a strong magnet.
You can find degaussing coils here:

They usually come with some basic instructions. You can also make your own and instructions for using one can be found at the same place:

I too would like to know the solution to this question...we are having the identical problem and Sony doesn't seem to know how to fix it. Although, the picture from the DVD player is perfect, the pictures for cable & video games are terrible. Very frustrating!

If the display seems normal when present, you may have what is called a 'cold solder joint,' possibly in the area of the horizontal power supply. This can be caused by normal heating and cooling of a particular spot on the circuit board that finally fractures the solder and making the joint thermally sensitive.
Most component failures, even when intermittant, would affect the display in some obvious way such as distortion, contrast, brightness, etc.
