Question about Projection Televisions

3 Answers

My 36" Sony XBR 400 (Tube) TV does not switch on anymore. I started having this problem since the last month or so. It does make a sound as if it is being started, but does not eventually. A couple of weeks ago, if I switched on the TV, it would not start, then the next day it would start. But now, it has stopped switching on completely. I can see the power light blink a few times (I think 5 times or so) when I switch it on, then nothing happens.

Your tv has entered auto shutdown mode maybe because you have a short or a mess up on a circuit board. It keeps the tv from catching fire. You will need to get it checked by a professional to tell you the problem and to get it fixed.

    Try doing a tv reset by leaving it unplugged overnight and plugging it back up. It might work.

This could happen due to several reasons.if you have a technical idea .first check the power wire of the tv is it proper or looks like short any where or cut any where. unplug the tv from the electric socket for sometime then check by connecting it again.if it does get resolves then its something major can be resolved by a professional technician.if you have an technical knowledge you can start removing the board fron the tv by opening it carefully.and on the board check out for any burnt capacitor or any ICs or any thing gone short on the main board.
replace it by using soldering iron.
thanks.

I think you need to check the high voltage in the damping diode if it is entering the picture tube. If this diode is faulty the tube will not light. you can also check the circuit before it enters the damping diode if there is voltage present.

Sony xbr-52in projection tv show double picture's


It sounds like a convergence problem. A fairly common reason for thisproblem is the convergence chips have failed. They are usually referredto as "STK" chips since the model number of these chips start with STK.I will put a link to another part of this site where someone has postedpictures and a link where to get the parts should you decide to fix ityourself. Look at Ecullier2012's posting. Jean's posted site will notfix this problem. Hope this helps you out. Let me know.

Please post both the exact model number (on the back) and the blink count. The standby light should be blinking a repeated pattern. That info will indicate the problem circuit and allow us to provide you with the proper parts/steps to resolve this.

I don't have the XBR, but on my sony, using the cable box remote, I had to go into menu/display/etc. and mark the 1080i, 720p, and 480i settings. you usually get a "if you can see this" comment if your tv accepts the settings. for standard tv i set the screen to normal, and when the upper channels go to HD, they auto go to full screen. Sounds like you are using the component cable, and also make sure you are on the video port of remote, and the the TV input. The above worked for mine. Hope it helps.
