Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36FS120 36" TV
Tv now takes longer to show picture once the unit is powered up, and once it is on the colors appear to be faded,not as vivid as they once were. the unit is four years old. will another lamp fix the problem and is this a cost effective measure
This sony (KV-36FS120) is a flat screen CRT type Television not LCD. However the problem you are describing sounds like a CRT problem. I posted this before and I hope it is helpful to you,
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,
