Re: black screen

If you have no solid state repair experience, you should for sure call out a pro to assist you in this repair. There are no user replaceable parts inside these sets as they have no tubes to test and replace as in the years gone by.

Our TV has been perfect for many years. We now suddenly have the picture compress, if you will, to the bottom 2/3's of the television screen, and it makes an angle like a triangle going toward the bottom....

This fault sounds like failure of the LINE OUTPUT TRANSFORMER.
It can be fixed, but may cost you around $120, possibly more if you have to call out an engineer.
Best NOT to use the TV as it is, because it could possibly damage the system.
If you do use it, this line will become permanent and if you get the TV fixed later, there will always be a burnt section of the screen where the line was - so I suggest you either pay to get it fixed right away, or consider buying a replacement.

Hope this helps!

Hi my name is jeremy snow and i have recently had problems with my sony trinitron xbr 1997. lately the picture like scrunches up into the top of the screen and the tv just goes black and now like sometimes...

You have two problems. Dry joints causing the no picture and capacitors causing the frame cramping.
A 680uF 35Volt capacitor will fix the frame cramping and re soldering underneath almost everywhere will solve the intermittant picture fault.

I have a blank, black screen, irrespective of the input (cable, dvd, wii). The menus, however, come up fine and the audio is working fine.


Your screen is showing a black picture because the closed caption function has been activated. When the closed caption mode is on the screen will display an 80% black picture.

To turn off the closed caption and regain a full screen please follow these steps;

1) Press the Menu button

2) Use the up and down arrows to navigate to Closed Caption

3) Use the right or left arrows to select it.

4) Use the right or left arrows to select OFF

5) Use the up or down arrows to select Finish

6) Use the right or left arrows to save the settings and exit.

You should have your full screen back now minus the annoying black box.

If this solution has helped please do take a moment to rate it.

Thanks for using FixYa

Screen went black and never ressurected

It is repairable.Open the TV and check the fuse and then the flyback transformer for any loose soldering. check for obvious burnt transisters, resistors, capacitors etc. the flyback is the component that has a wire to the picture screen on the inside of the TV. Be careful. Capacitors and picture tubes retain high current. If you don't know what your doing take it for repair.

Tv screen

you picture tube is weak.
take the back off and rotate the screen control left, then advance it slowly till you just get the pix.
It may last a little longer, but be prepared to buy a new it is not economical to repair(expensive)

Sony Trinitron KV-32S40 32" TV problem

This is a simple and common problem. The solder joints on the vertical output IC have cracked loose. I actually did a housecall on the exact same set with the exact same symptoms this morning! A good tech will resolder the pins of the vertical output IC and all other major solder joints on the main board and the set will play fine.

Black comes across right side of screen

Sounds like you've got whats called a cold solder connection somewhere in the horizontal width control circuit or a connection in the sweep section. Should'nt be two expensive but unless you have had some soldering and troubleshooting experience I would leave this on to the pros. Good Luck
