1998 Sony Trinitron 35" TV

I was watching TV last night and out of nowhere the tv just made a zzzzt and turned off. I cant turn it back on. Is the TV even worth having it looked at? or should I send it to the curb? Crappy to say that i actually spent $1600.00 back in the day on it. Thanks Jim

Yes this set was top of the line back then as I repaired tons of them. These days its going to most likly cost you 250 to 300 bucks to repair this as it sounds like the flyback transformer and the horiz. transistor are bad, along with most likly a few dryed up capacitors. I would not invest anything into this set, but you are the owner and you have to ask yourself "do I want to invest in a set that your not sure what else will go bad?" Invest in a shiney new flat panel or a microdisplay set.

Sony trinitron just shut down while watching it. will not turn back on

The Sony sets were well known for capacitor issues, the problem is on the power supply board where two or three capacitors will need to be changed, I recommend a tv technician for the job.

Sony 35inch Trinitron Color TV

Hi. I dont recognise that model number. Take a look at the rear of set & see if there is a chassis number eg AE1. AE1A, AE1B, AE1C, AE2, AE2A, AE5, AE3B, BE2, BE2A,BE3, DE1, F1, FX, These are some of the common older chassis. You say led flashes does it flash 2, 3, 4, 5, times etc then pause then repeat ?

Television won't turn on

it is best you buy another set my friend it is not worth fixing the money you have for repairs and the cost for components put it together and you will get a good tv free of repair worries plus with warranty.if you get that set fix bam you take it home then about a week it is back in the work shop will have to spend more money.a 10 year old set is not worth to have it repaired.replace it.good luck my friend.

Sony Trinitron TV will not turn on

First thing that comes to mind is that the horizontal driver transformer has bad solder connections on the primary and the secondary windings. Also a set this old could also have a defective regulator IC if you dont know wht m saying , b=est thing to do is find out how much an estimate is then go back to best buy and see what a new set cost cause man you got your moneys worth outa this one for sure!!!!! Good Luck
