Sony KV-32XBR96S No picture, or sound

I was wondering if I could get some advice for this. I noticed a few weeks ago that my picture was blacking out, but the audio was fine. One day my Wife tapped on the top of the tv, and the picture came back on. Well the problem came back that night, and my Wife tried the same "method" and basically lost everything power included. Now she barely tapped it I know this because I was in the room when it happened. I tried unplugging it and waiting and plugging it back in, but to no avail. When I plug it back in I can hear something power up in the back of the set, but there is still no activity when I hit the power button. I did however notice that the stand by light had come on (very dim I might add) the last time that I tried to power up, but only when I had my finger on the power button. I had a repair man over here to check into it, and he couldn't find the culprit. He told me that he had checked all of the usual suspects for Sony models, and everything had checked out ok. I ordered the service manual, and checked the troubleshooting section, and found nothing as well. I have very limited experience with the inner workings of a television set, but I would love to learn. Any help or advice for this situation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you John I dont have the same problem as above person but mine is with the Sony kv-32xbr96s.When I turn on the tv,either with the remote or power button,all the tv will do is click real fast and eventually gets slower and finally the tv will start to come on and off but with a loud snow white screen,unti it finally stays on with a picture.Occaisionally it will do this throughout the day.I dont know what else to do.Is this worth fixing? Thanks

Sony Trinitron KV-32S40 32" TV problem

This is a simple and common problem. The solder joints on the vertical output IC have cracked loose. I actually did a housecall on the exact same set with the exact same symptoms this morning! A good tech will resolder the pins of the vertical output IC and all other major solder joints on the main board and the set will play fine.

Hello Robert, the picture tube on your TV set is exausted. Please contact your nearest Authorized Sony Service for further help/advice. After all, Sony is a good choice. The next TV set you buy could be one of Sony-s Bravia LCD. Kind regards, Arpad
