Trinitron color is going out on each side but fine in the center

My Sony Trinitron is starting to be dull and blurry on each side of the screen, but it seems fine in the middle. Does this mean the picture tube is going bad?

Try tweaking the focus knob on the flyback transformer, worked for me on my 32" kh-32fs13 Flat screen Sony Trinitron!

There will be 2 knobs on the transformer, one that says picture and one that says focus, tweak the focus knob.

You're going to have to open back cover so be careful High VOLTAGES!

Hello vineinn2,

I would say that might be the problem, but it might also be a HV problem. I had posted this before and it might help 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,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

I have a sony trinitron 36in tv, the screen works fine, colours are all great, no flickering or random shapes at all, its just a little blurry around edges, especially small text, its very blurry and...


it is very easy you just need a very small straight edge screwdriver

you should try to adjust sharpness setting with on screen adjustment first

if tv is too old tube might be going "soft" and sharp focus might not be able to be fully achieved anymore

good luck

Maybe the degaussing coil is moved backward from the picture tube.

Picture color is distorted.


Try turning off power and let set cool completely. Then turn back on. Letting it cool complety re-arms the autmatic degaussing circuit. It may take several cycles to completly clear it up.

Sony Trinitron kv-27HFR blurry


the picture tube is gone.
i repaired 150 sony xbr and kv series with that problem.sony has a single gun not three and has a great pix,but burn out faster.
there is a main screen control that you can adjust ,but the tube is gone.
on the back of the crt there is 3 gun drives r g b .
turn the color all the way down so it is black and white.
if there is a green ore purple tint,one gun is out of balance.
ajdusting the r g b controls so that black and white is normal is what you want to do.
the crt board has the screen bias voltage 800volts on it so be very careful and use an insulated screwdriver to adjust the drive controls.

Missing Green colour on 36" Sony FD Trinitron WEGA


This is not a problem that a reset will fix. THe 5 blinks is a code that indicates a problem with the AKB circuit. There is a possibility that the picture tube is starting to fail, but that is rare. If you are comfortable working inside the set where there are potentially dangerous high voltages even when unplugged, let me know and I will provide additional details and instructions for a couple of repair options.

Sony trinitron 32 " purple area on screen


Check any magnatic device near TV which causes purple color on screen. That device can be Speaker, Electronic toy, Watch like that carring piece of magnet inside. Remove that device and turn OFF your TV for half a hour, then power again. Hope the color will be fine n normal on entire screen.
