Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KD-36FS130 36" TV
Hi, Our seven-year-old Sony Wega recently started having problems. Typical behavior on power-up is a black screen for 5-10 minutes, followed by flickering (the screen turning off and on every two to three seconds). As time went on, the flickering went on for a longer period. Now the screen cycles off and on during any scenes with high brightness. At the same time, the color balance has gone way out of whack. The image is now green monochrome and very low contrast. The blacks are medium green. I went into the service menu to see if any adjustments could be made, but attempts to change the red and blue settings did very little. Any thoughts? Thanks, Dave
Sorry to say, it sounds like a bad picture tube, But could be also the capacitor that filters the screen voltage on the crt drivers. In all my years though, your complaint has been the picture tube. Good Luck.
