Re: No picture but great sound

Is very possible your picture tube is good,the problem might be a loose conection in the main board,the circuits to check will be the horizontal driver transformer,the output transformer and all overheated components in that area,another possible reason might be a loose conection in the crt board witch is in the neck of the picture tube,if you are familiar with tv service you can try to repair it yourself,you can start by removing the back cover and try to tap on different areas of the chassis to see if it reacts ,do this with a wooden or plastic handle(not metal)and be atentive where you tap when the set reacts so you can go back and check the solder conections,if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help from a servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.

Sony KV-32FX20U picture has a colour cast

Check its video output card [a card directly plugged on to the back of the picture tube] for any loose solder terminals. Re-solder all the suspected solder terminals there, by applying a little more solder to each points. A bad solder point can cause this type of problem.

Sony KV-32S45 turns on at first, than blinks out, still sound

I would look for intermitent solder connections on the small horizonal driver transformer as well as other HV Componets.(HV Transformer etc.) Also solder up the Vetical output IC. These have been common causes of failures. I would not use the set until these have been checked and soldered. If you don't, a massive failure of the hoizonal circuit and powersupply will occur.
Hope this helps,

Losing picture on tv!

The ITC008 chassis is commonly riddled with poor solder connections. Good soldering station, patience and some good light and magnification and you might be able to fix it... Or you could spend a few dollars and run it into the shop and have a tech do it! It's not an expensive repair.
