Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36FS120 36" TV

3 Answers

Picture is dim and white is kinda blueish green tinted

I just got this tv. it was given as a gift and I believe moved a little rough. First day the picture was perfect. now the picture is dim and its not as clear as before. the whites do show a blueish green tint to them. I went into the setup by doing the display #5 volume up power sequence and tried to adjust accordingly without any luck. when I turn up the brightness the colors are not sharp.

I have to agree with Shuttle83. All the symtoms point to a tired CRT. A little vibration would not cause the symptoms you listed. The problem may also be an issue of input power voltage to the TV but it's a stretch. Now how the picture looked so good when first fired up is interesting. Did you move the TV to a different AC outlet? Just wondering if the AC power source or plug connection is an issue. Last gasp trying to help you.

Hello jeromek28,

This may be a CRT problem. From what it sounds like i.e. dim picture, colors not bright. If you have a background in electronics I would tell you to check the voltage levels on the CRT pins and compare them to the values on a schematic, however if you do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest you taking the TV to your local TV repair shop and have them troubleshoot your problem.

Here is a possible list of things that might be wrong:

1) CRT going bad (The shop can try CRT rejuvenation if needed)
2) High Voltage on the anode not at proper levels (The shop can check this with a HV probe)
3) Video output levels low (The shop can check the voltage and signal levels on the CRT socket board, and on the video amplifiers.

These are the three primary possible issues.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

Green tint I can't seem to fix


Hopefully someone on here has a manual and can tell you exactly where the tint controls are. Also need to try adjusting the color level, turn it clear down so you have a black and white picture.
Is the picture still green over the screen with the color control
set clear down to black and white? If it does, you might
have an issue with the green gun going out or problem in the
circuitry to it.


By the way, the best way to adjust the picture settings on a
tv are to first turn the color control clear down, then adjust
brightness and contrast for best black and white picture, then
bring up the color level to where it should be and adjust the
tint for best red/green ratio.

Green tint on screen


Is it a green tint at some areas alone, oris the entire image having a green tint? If it is a color patch at the corner or other areas of the screen, in all likelihood it is a degaussing problem. Color patches happen when the TV is moved from one location to another, or if some magnetic source is placed close to a CTV. Did you put a radio or Tape recorder or Walkie talkie toy or any magnetic source near the TV? if yes, remove it. And the automatic Dregaussing circuits in the TV will resolve the problem in a couple of days. But if there is an overall Green tint on the picture, it signifies a problem in the Video output stages, and there is nothing you can do, but call the technician (unless you know solid state servicing?)

Rca truflat with green tinted picture?


Just because a machine has failed, there is no cause for you to call it a stupid TV. And as it is only 6 months old, why not take it to the Company service Centre? There must be warranty.

Color issues in the lower right corner


Unplug the set overnight and plug back in and turn the set on . If the spot goes away alittle then do this again. Up to three days > if that dosent fix the problem then you have a problem in the deguissing coil curcuit. Probably a cod joint on the thermister or a bad relay , a bad coil . Not a big deal repair. Good luck
