Question about Sony KV-27S42 27" TV

1 Answer

Dropped TV!!! Hi, Unfortunately just dropped my TV... Not smart, but mistakes happen. Not time to sort out the damage. The TV fell from about 1-2 feet directly onto the front side. Upon trying it out, the led flashes as usual but instead of turning on the image, one can hear a click and the TV shuts down by itself. I inspected the TV, found a small crack in the big board but one that doesn't seem to disrupt any connection. Otherwise, no obvious damage. What is the most likely problem? Other crack in the board? Tube broken? Is it worth fixing? Sad consumer

Re: dropped TV!!!

Worth fixing? Sorry, probably not. My experience with problems like this are such that the set will keep being repaired as new issues develop. The click and shutdown are a safety feature and are kicking in for a reason. Take what you'd spend on repairs and get a new TV. It will be cheaper in the long run. You might make some $ back by selling the set for parts. Who knows? Hope this helps.

Hi I have a Panasonic 36" TXPF10 TV. THERES different colors on the screen like a SPECTRUM, is there anyway of fixing this

Its what we call a purity problem on this 36 inch set and only two things cause it, the set (not getting too technical) uses a single part connected inside that when set is turned on powers a large coil around the picture tube--it just demagnetizes the tube---what happens is there is a single black square part there not much bigger than a cube of sugar---easy to spot as it will have three leads in a triangle shape---

What you will likely find if you can get the set apart---Its a real heavy set is follow the power cord to the board---real high chance you will find one of the three leads on that part has broken loose from the board, happens from all the heat at turn on that part gets real hot for a very short time.

You would be smart if one lead has come loose to solder all three---the part is often referred to as a thermistor--as it gets hot it cuts voltage off to the coil.

The other possible cause is only possible if set fell forward or was dropped, in that case the damage is fatal and cannot be repaired.

Let me know if questions.

32" TV fell over onto carpeted floor and won't

It's probably a write-off. The circuit board inside has been cracked so that some of the copper traces that connect parts have broken. This commonly happens around the area of the horizontal output transformer, which is heavy. The shock of the fall causes the transformer to bounce and breaks the board. Other areas too may have been damaged because of flexing. And worst, the picture tube can be damaged in a fall, so it either doesn't work at all or shows permanently distorted colors.

It's tough to find anyone willing to repair a set that's fallen. Many circuit board tracks are very narrow and hard to repair. Then it's difficult to know if all the damage has been found and repaired, so even if the set starts working a technician doesn't know if something else won't go wrong. And then there's that bad tube possibility; no technician likes to spend lots of time fixing a broken board only to find the set then needs a new tube. Trust me, this has happened to me several times during my career in TV shops.

Your best bet is to use this as an excuse to buy a new LCD or plasma TV. 40-inch models, a good size match for a 32-inch CRT (tube) model, are reasonably priced.

My screen turned into all colors after i dropped the tv


If the colours on the screen are like a "rainbow" then I'm afraid your tube is damaged - probable cause is the shadow mask in the tube itself has slipped. Dropping a CRT TV set is not good and all sorts of things can happen to the tube.

Carrying monster TV's like this you should always have TWO people carrying it - put it down to experience - you have learned the hard way!

Looks like you'll be buying a new TV!

My tv was dropped and now the color is messed up how can i fix it

Unfortunately, this can't be fixed without replacing the picture tube. The drop caused a piece called the shadow mask inside the tube to warp or break loose. When that happens, the red, green and blue beams in the tube don't hit the right places on the screen. There isn't any way to repair this kind of damage.

If you had professional movers doing the job, their insurance should cover some or all of the cost of repairing the TV (replacing the tube, that is) or replacing the set. I wish I could give you better news.

Unfortunately, the drop damaged the picture tube. There's a piece inside the tube called the shadow mask. It is supposed to make sure the 3 electron beams in the tube strike only their own colors, and it has been warped or shifted by the drop. There is no repair except to replace the picture tube.
