Sound fine, but absolutely no picture?

Hi, I recently moved this tv from one house to the next and when I plugged it in, the picture did not come on, but the sound was fine. the stand-by light is continuously blinking but the screen is black? It was cold outside and the tv was outside for awhile, would that have anything to do with it? Please help, would hate to throw it away...

    I just am using a coaxial directly from the wall into the vhf plug, do I need to use the color input holes?

  • annihilator Nov 05, 2007

    I am having the same problem, I brought the TV in from outside and now the sound works for a minute no picture. Then I get a blinking on timer light. It just keeps blinking and I get nothing. I have no cable or wires hooked up to it yet.

It seems that your tv has a problem in horizontal circuit (with sound but no pictures). since you moved your tv from one place to another, the tv might have shaken causing to loose some soldered components particularly in horizontal circuit. if u have exprience in this stuffs, try to resolder the circuit, if not, bring it to a service technician.

If you have cable or sattelite, you probably use those wires that attach to those coloured input holes. If you didn't put the same wire colour as the inputs, that might be why it dosen't work.

    No you don't have to use the input holes. I just recommended this solution because if it's not plugged into the right hole, you have sound problems. If yours is not working, then probably you have the wrong attachment.

The light is flashing a fault code, count the number of flashes (ie blinks 3 times and then pauses) then search the internet, there is more than enough information. Just search Sony LED blinks/flashes. As you have moved the telly this could have also loosened a poor joint inside, stopping the telly working properly. No dont put the aerial cable into the video sockets, you had it right the first time.

I think it does have a lot to do with loose solder. I hit the side of mine at it just came back on. That sort of thing is usually dry solder jumping out of place.

I had the same problem. isolated the issue to the televisions coaxial input. used red/white/yellow cords directly and it seems to work fine

Posted on Oct 08, 2008

Tv is fucked. end of.

Posted on Jan 30, 2008

I had the same problem with the same TV. The pic would come on and then go black on its own or when the side of the case was touched. I took it to a certified Sony repair shop...they had it for a month and got it to show the problem only once in their shop; thus, they could not provide a diagnosis. They claim they haven't ever heard of this problem before, but obviously its happened to many others as well. Long story short, I took the TV back home and haven't had any trouble since (who knows???)

Posted on Mar 29, 2007

Any luck with your problem? I have the same thing going on with the same tv.

Posted on Feb 06, 2007

Interestingly, I just had the exact same problem last night. Let me know if you figure it out. Actually, I got the picture to show up one time. But other than that it seems like it might have something to due with the connection to the tube. Using car terminology, is it almost like the picture tube won't "turn over"? That's what I'm experiencing. I will let you know if I find anything

Posted on Feb 01, 2007

No I haven't had any luck at all, it seems that the only way to fix it is to take it to a repair shop, which is easier said than done in Telluride, Co. Good luck...

Ski Bum, I have the exact same problem with my TV -- sound is fine but no picture. Was wondering if you had any success with resolving the issue? Snoop

Posted on Jan 22, 2007

I have the same prob. almost! no picture just sound. Standby light blinks for ever, on my sony kv35s66.. temp. fix is remove back cover, lossen plastic clip that holds the large circuit board on the bottom left as you face tv from the rear. Move the bd. out 4 " then slam it in(hard).. picture will come on but will fail again (intermitten) To have some on try to fix it$$$$$. and they probably won't. again this is only temp still working on the problem..

Posted on Jan 16, 2007

If you moved the set you have to open the back of the set. and check all the boards, maybe one came off, press the boards in place, also connections may got loosen.

I had a similar problem with a TV a few years ago, whereby the coaxial connection was damaged. I used the RCA jack inputs instead and it worked fine. Hope that it is something simple like this!

SOURCE: Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking

The most common problem (I have fixed lots) is the Vertical amplifier has developed a loose connection. It probably just needs resoldering. As things expand it makes and looses connection you picture goes in and out. The vertical chip is a large black chip that gets hot, over time it degrades the solder until a connection is damaged. Most newer sets have a protection circuit that senses the lack of height, and shuts down the picture tube to save it. When the picture dropped to a line on older TVs and left that way too long it would burn a line into the face of the picture tube. You then had to have the picture tube replaced along with the vertical amp. it's kinda like a screensaver for your TV.

SOURCE: Standby/stereo light blinking no picture or sound

My picture would go out after several minutes but I still had sound. I took the rear cover off and blew all the dust off with compresed air.I did this for a few times over several days nothing happened.I also took off the rear circuit board that attaches to the tube with a round pin socket and blew that with compressed air and put it back on. The TV has now worked for two days without the picture going out. It worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My TV is 9 years old.

SOURCE: TV does not turn on

On older Sony, sometimes a power surge causes the set to be in shut down mode. Try unplugging for 5 minutes and then plug in and try. This many times will fix.

I have a Sony Wega KP-FX432M91 Prjection TV. I am moving house and I want to know if I can lay the TV flat on it's back to move as it's too tall to stand upright in our vehicle


Hi,
Please do not lay tv on its back because of its internal design, things are mounted inside vertically and screws are holding them in place. Laying tv on back will put force on screws that might came off or get loose and you will end up with a distorted picture on tv screen.
Move tv in stand upright position, it is safe.
Hope this will help.
Thanks.

Sound working no picture


Depending on the events leading up to what happend...
Was your plasma tv recently transported or moved from one area to another?

One thing about plasma tv's if you lay them horizontally or has been tilt at a certain angle they will have problems projecting any picture. PLASMA tv's should ALWAYS stay vertically standing. you can let it stand where it should be for atleast 24 hours ( i recommend upto 48 hours) without plugging it in.. (no electricity what so ever) then check if it works.

About the click you heard, it might have been a blown fuse. Probably resulting from plugging in the tv while it was in a "chemical inbalance". therefore my above recommendation is a bit too late. if you still have warranty then you have no problem. just the hassle.

Refrigerator doesn't stay on.


sounds like when you moved it you created an air lock, when moving fridges etc. should always leave for 24 hrs to settle before plugging in.... , no guarantee but try laying it down and leaving overnight then stand it up again and leave for at least 24 hrs for the refrigerant to try and sort itself out. UNPLUGGED from mains of course... good luck

Sony Trinitron color TV model no. kv-27v22


dear, you can check that transformers out put before connecting to a tv. also when its connected to a tv.
get a avo meter and connect in series with a tv.
observe the current on the intial switch on and when the picture goes. if you notice that current on intial switching is high and then it starts going lower and lower, then change the transformer.
but if the current starts going up from the intial current then check the power supply components of the tv.
thanks for asking fixya.
