TV Capacitor Replacement

I have a Sony TRINITRON KV-27HSR10 TV set which works but the picture flickers pretty badly during power up. It's been checked before by an electrician and he said a capacitor must be replaced. Specifically, a 10uF 250V electrolytic capacitor.
I have a soldering iron and want to replace it on my own. I don't remember which capacitor it was on board, but I'm guessing the capacitor should be leaking or bulging. 
I wanted to know which capacitors will I need to discharge in order to safely work on the board? And will I need to discharge the TV tube?

SOURCE: Sony Trinitron Picture Tube replacement

I think that you will find the picture tube to be more expensive than a replacement TV, if it is still available (unlikely). That being said, it is also unlikely that the tube itself is the problem, The more common problem is the horizontal output transistor or the flyback transformer. Either part should still be available for a reasonable cost. Check with a local servicer for the part numbers and costs. These are common parts.

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with
troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're still in warranty, the TV will be repaired at no charge to you. The warranty would likely be at least one year from the date of purchase from the manufacturer. If you purchased an extended service plan they will repair the TV at no charge as well.

If the TV is no longer in warranty, it will likely cost a minimum of $150 parts and labor. This is assuming that you only need one
circuit board or small part. If the problem is more than one of the circuit boards, the price of repair could go much higher.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

If you are hearing a click and the shut off and on during the time of the set coming to start up, then is possible that the Line output transformer is having a leak and then clearing up later to steady.
Open the back cover and clean up the dirt in the LOT. Now with the back panel taken off - with precaution not to touch any parts- put the set on and listen to any ticking noise.
If so shut off and solder the section from where you re hearing the noise. If the fault still is persistent, the check on the capacitors in the Power, Horizontal vertical and HT.
If you suspect that the set stabilises on heat , use a hair dryer to heat up the circuit in suspicion, then centre on to the component.

The fault is with some loose contacts. Check and rectify this. There is no more components to replace. Look for any loose solder terminals. That is all. But it will be a difficult task to reach to the exact point of fault.

Check the filter capacitor to the supply to video output card. You can locate this capacitor at the CRT base card to your Sony Trinitron. Replace this electrolytic capacitor.

My tv flickers picture in and out when i first turn it on,but the sound works fine. then after awile it works fine. model # kv-27hsr10 trinitron.


You definitely have a bad capacitor and there are bad grounds that need resoldered. You will have to replace the capacitor or two or three. I would certainly look for those in the 200 volt range to 1Mf to 4.7Mfs as most likely to replace. Also you should resolder the vertical IC chip. This is a most common problem here! Thanks for asking!

Our Trinitron KV-36XBR400 powers up then no picture


How old is this tv?More than 5 years old.Not worth it to repair CRT tv at this prices.Tries unplug,replug an hour later,might help,see if reset itself.U can buy a pretty good 32" LCD tv at $400 or less these day.It not heavy as the CRT tv,it alot easier to move the tv around the house or other locations.

Power on


The power board has parts going out on it. A slow decline in performance usually points to a bad capacitor or power transistor. Take a look at the power board. The board will show extreme overheating evidence if you had a meltdown. If it looks clean, maybe it is just a bad capacitor. If you see a capacitor that looks like the top is bulging out, that is a sign of a bad part. Unless you like to solder, consider this tv done for.

Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-24FS120 24" TV Color changes


Try turning down (off) the color during such an episode. If the image is tinted pink or green instead of black and white when you do this,you have either an intermittent short in your CRT (tube), which is terminal,or a gun drive problem, which may be repairable. If you're feeding it component instead of composite signal,it may just be a bad connection of the B-Y cable.

Screen flickers upon power up


Looks like your picture tube is dying, or there is a bust capacitor(s) inside...I'd recommend taking it to a service shop to get it repaired.
