Question about Sony KV-XG29M61 29" TV

Open Question

Picture shaped like an hour glass

Hi, I'm hoping for some help!! I was given this tv, I think it's a 98? It's a sony trinitron XBR. It's in a huge cabinet, I can't take it to the repair shop. I'm pretty handy if I have good direction. The picture has an hour glass shape. Needless to say, all the women look great. Can I get some help and some very specific direction? Thanks

Did you correctly select the S-Video input on the TV via the remote? In other words, if the TV is not set to look at the S-Video input then nothing will happen. You have either an "input", "source" or tv/vcr button that will allow you to select what input the tv will look at for a signal. Make sure it's set to S-Video.

SOURCE: tv screen has slight hourglass shape

A common fault are some of the electrolytic capacitors failing in the pin cushoning amp section, and probably in part of the scan amplifiers.

To service this will require the proper training and set-up to troubleshoot the set.

Take the set to a service center for an estimate. The cost can be at least an hour or two for the labour, and then the cost of the parts on top.

The picture on my Sony is shaped like an hour glass


There is an apparatus on the back of your picture tube called a yoke.This distributes your picture on your pic tube uniformly.If this or the circuits enabling it malfunction,then you will get distortion-namely an hour glass shape.Tv has to be trouble shooted.

Sony trinitron xbr screen periodically goes black. The audio stays on but the video cuts out.


Sony sets have several protective circuits that blank the screen if something happens that might damage the picture tube. One of the more common causes is trouble in the vertical output circuit. Given the age of your TV (the XBR models have been around a while), this might also be a symptom of a picture tube starting to fail. Most of these sets have circuitry (called AKB) that adjusts the color drive signals to the picture tube to keep them balanced. If one of the colors is enough out of range the screen will blank. It might be the tube itself, or failure of some part in that AKB circuit. The set might also have defective parts in the input switching or video processing stages.

Unfortunately, I can't suggest any place you might look if you want to try repairing this on your own. This kind of trouble usually needs to be diagnosed and repaired by a professional TV technician who has the service information to track it down.

Hope this has been helpful. Thanks for using Fixya!

Sony Trinitron XBR TV, picture-in-picture got


A solution I found for our KV-32XBR200 was to press Setup on top of the set, then select the "Demo" item with TV/Video. The text overlay apparently banished PIP. Verified this twice, as I'm at this page because our remote can only turn PIP on :-).
