Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS200 27" TV

1 Answer

Pincushion issue I posted the following and henlopen kindly offered a solution: I had the flyback transformer replaced on this TV. After starting it up, I now have a pincushion (E/W) that won't resolve itself. Picture has a consistent hourglass image and wider than normal )|( . Any thoughts on component replacement or could this be a cold solder joint issue? Thanks in advance. _______________________________________ After further review of the insides of this TV....I found that the person who serviced the TV originally replaced Q502 (H-OUT) with a 2SD2645, but I'm thinking it should be a 2SD2634. Would these have much of a switch timing difference to cause pincushion issues? Thanks again.

Re: pincushion issue

Both transistors have built in damper diodes that are designed to work in "flyback" circuits, and the 2SD2645 is rated to handle 15 more watts and 2 amps more current than the 2SD2634, so I suspect the technican felt that the replacement part would be less likely to go bad. Of course if they subbed the transistor, could the flyback also be a substitute? Sometimes faulty capacitors in the collector circuit of the Horizontal output transistor can cause timing problems that also cause the transistor to fail. If that is the case, then further troubleshooting is required to find and replace said capacitor(s), and that could also be the root of your problem. There is also one other possibility I can think of (aha!) and that is that the 2SD2645 was a "off brand generic" that does not live up to its published specifications. With Sony products, I have learned (the hard way sometimes) that it is usually best to use only OEM parts.

My TV has been acting strange lately. When I turn it on, the screen looks purple and has these horizontal lines up and down the entire screen. They don't expand to both sides of the screen, though. WHen...

there seems to be a problem in the horizontal circuit...there is a control on the flyback transformer that is labeled "screen". (you'll have to take the back off) The flyback is the component that looks sort of round with the red high voltage lead coming out the top and connecting to the top of the picture tube.On the back of the flyback there will be 2 or 3 controls if 2 there will be 1 focus and 1 screen, if 3 there are 2 focus and 1 screen..using an insulated flat blade screwdriver, slowly turn the screen control counterclockwise to see if this will make the lines go away...if not then there is a horizontal cicuit fault and quit possibly a pincushion problem(hourglass effect)..these will need to be checked by a service shop

My KV-34HS420 won't come on and the Standby light

The system has found issues with your TV.. The only solution is to call in service. Tell them the 6 blinks.. it is a code for diagnostics. Sorry.. the logic portion of the TV is experiencing some kind of breakdown. The only suggestion that I can offer is to hard reset your TV to factory settings.. other than that you are in duck soup..

36" RCA- loud whine/squeal when it is plugged in, otherwise no power.

The HOT Hortz output transistor has gone home, 99% of the time from a faulty IVHT (Flyback Transformer), very common on the ctc187cl* chassis. The factory Flyback is no longer available, I have had problems finding an aftermarket one to replace it with.

The HOT is a BUH517, but you can also use a 2SD5129. It is the transistor mounted on the siler heat sink with a metal clip rather than a screw, just in front of the flyback.....

If you replace just the HOT, most of the time you will get a rapid arc (27,000volts - BE CAREFUL!!!) from the lower (yoke) post on the flyback. If the flyback is shorted, It may also just burn out the HOT and go right back to "squealing"....

Good luck finding the flyback!!!

FLYBACK Transformer for APex 32'' Model #PF3230 Flat Part #BSC 70Y

Its not worth the repair if you still want to go ahead i need to know two things:
Are you going to have a qualified electronics technician fit it?
If you are planning to fit it yourself are you a qualified electronics technician?
If you answered no to both of these questions i cannot tell you where to get one or how to fit it due to the massive amounts of danger involved.

Tv dead

no problem

replace by same number.

but remember before you replace check the following.

  1. check for normal output from power supply.
  2. check components connected to flyback capacitors & diodes.
  3. check for print short.
  4. while replacing h/output be careful to check heat sink compound & mica sheet normal.
  5. put on the set
  6. if still it blows then flyback transformer is faulty.
  7. hope this will help.
  8. good luck.

Pincushion problem

My thoughts would be, was it a Sony OEM transformer or a generic type? If the latter, that is probably a likely suspect. Another thing would be misplaced wires or switches that could have been accidently moved while replacing the transformer. I have had some of these sets that had no high voltage, and all it turned out to be was a broken solder connection on one of the pins going to the flyback transformer. Usually, if the flyback is bad, the Horizontal output transistor would be also defective. It's also possible that in the process of removing the old flyback (fun job wasn't it?) you may have cracked one or more of the circuit traces in that area of the PC board.

Pincushion Picture

Lets try something before you call for a second opinion,with the tv ON and the problem showing hit the top and side of the tv,if the picture somehow reacts or corrects itself when you hit it call someone else and tell them what the problem is and that you feel it has a loose conection,dont have to tell them about the first estimate. Dont hit the tv with a hammer,just with the palm of your hand.Is worth the try. Good luck.
