Sony WEGA 36" Trinitron HD

Hello. My TV has a 1/2" black border on all 4 sides. I have attempted all the different setting functions on both my Sony and DirecTV remotes. Tried resetting the dish with no luck. Hoping this is not a issue with the TV tube inself. Any ideas? Thanks for the help.

Check for unit posting any blink codes on the timer LED. Google "sony blinking codes" for the explanation. Try turning unit off for 4 hours to force a hard reset of your set, you need to unplug it. Sounds like a low voltage problem in the HV circuit.

Sony Wega Trinitron TV image has shrunk?

Check its main power regulator section circuit for any loose solder terminals. Low power regulator voltage output is the problem to your TV.

My tv screen shrunk in from the sides

Ok, you have a problem in the Horizontal output circuit--width etc.

Going to be a shop repair as most shops will not tackle this in the home--36 inch from the model indicated so expect repair to exceed 150 parts and labor.

If the border is not large on both sides the set also has a tech menu accessed with the remote--adjustments are there for centering and width--it will not fix a circuit problem.

On Sony 36 iinch Trinitron TV, when I go to HDTV channels the picture size changes to widescreen. How do I adjust back to full screen on HD? I tried the "no zoom" button but that doesn't work. Cannot...

Please note that all HDTV channels project wide screen pictures. You can still go to settings and then picture mode and change the format to 4:3/full mode.

Video 4 not working properly


9 out of 10 times, the problem is the device that is hooked up to the TV, and not the TV itself. This is especially true in the case of cable boxes, which have a long history of failures.

Temporarily, you can probably hook up the composite (yellow red and white) cables to get a picture and sound on a different input.

You can try to hook up a DVD player on the inputs (component, I'm guessing) and it will probably work. Then you get to call the cable company!

Hope this helps...

KV-36XBR450, FD Trinitron WEGA

Hello maymet,

This sounds like the HV protection circuit is cutting off the TV due to a high current event in the set. This could be a problem in the High Voltage section of your TV (Horizontal output transistor, Integrated High Voltage Transformer, and y of the deflection components, and or the CRT in cases of shorts).

I would suggest that if you do not have a background in electronics, you should have an experienced TV technician troubleshoot and repair this problem.
This is due to the nature of the dangerous voltages that are present in the television.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Sony Trinitron KV-36HS20

I have this set also..
When you set up for an HD signal (1080i) it is broadcast in 16:9 which is a widescreen format. The Sony set is a 4:3 format (more of a square shape) which means the black bars at the top and bottom appear so that you get the widescreen 16:9 format to appear.

This is one of the main negatives I have about this set, however, I can't really complain as I have had it for 6 years and it works great.

I never knew about the other format until I got an HD receiver from my satellite dish provider last year.
Hope that helps explain it for you..
