Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Sony tv I have an older Sony Trinitron TV that doesn't work unless you first rap your knuckles on it's side a couple of times. It seems as though it's taking longer and longer for it to work properly. As Marvin Gaye would often ask, what's going on? Is this something that can be fixed, or is the tube finally going to that tv repair shop in the sky?

    It is likely a loose connection, either a plug is not fully inserted or a poor solder connection on one of the circuit boards. Dangerous voltages exist within this TV; if you want to attempt repairs, I could make some recommendations, but it probably isn't a good idea.

Is there a power fuse in this tv. sony 32" 1998 trinitron. Had great color, picture & sound. Will not turn on/no power.


There are fuses in most TV's... and in some cases, it's nothing but the fuse. BUT, the fuses are there to protect the circuits... so unless you know that there is nothing wrong with the TV, you shouldn't simply replace the fuse and plug it back in. However, if the TV is an older TV and it's either fix it by replacing the fuse or get rid of the TV... then I'd certainly take out the screws and check the fuses in the TV. But many times the fuse blows to protect it when something else fails... so if you find a blown fuse, look around for other signs.

Given that you can rap the side and get it to work, suggests a bad solder connection inside the set. If you are comfortable working inside the set (high voltages that are potentially dangerous even with the set unplugged) and can solder, you should be able to fix this yourself. Look for solder connections that appear grainy or have rings and resolder them. That should resolve the problem. If not, please post the exact model number and we'll continue on to the next step.
