Hello jmdady,

First I would like to say that this procedure is dangerous, and should only be done by a qualified Television Technician.

With that being said here is how I would do it:

1) unplug TV and remove the back panel of the TV set.

2) discharge the anode voltage of the CRT by using a screwdriver attached to a clip lead which is attached to the ground of the TV.

3) Remove the chassis of the TV as per the instructions found in the service data (you will need to buy the schematic diagram and the service data sheets for this set)

4) with the chassis removed and the HV anode removed from the CRT, lay the TV face down on a soft surface (a folded towel or a large foam pad).

5) Remove the yoke transformer and the convergence rings by releasing the holder ring and slowly moving the assembly up on the neck of the CRT until the whole assembly is free.

6) Unscrew the 4 retaining brackets and remove the retaining assembly from around the tube (this includes the grounding straps

7) Once the retaining assembly is removed, pick the tube up by the sides (DO NOT USE THE NECK OF THE TUBE TO LIFT THE TUBE UP).

8) Once the old tube is out, put the new tube in its place.

9) Reinstall the retaining brackets and the grounding strap and screw the assembly back in place.

10) put the yoke transformer back on to the set, using the same spacers and mounting equipment but do not tighten the holder ring (you will need the yoke and color rings to the loose to adjust purity and convergence)

11) Reinstall the chassis as per the schematic, reconnect the HV anode, the CRT board, and the connections to the Yoke Transformer

12) At this point you will need a color pattern/bar generator, a mirror, and a lot of patience because you will need to adjust the yoke on the TV and adjust color purity, and convergence (Read the schematic as to the recommended signal levels, and patterns to use).

This is the procedure I would use. Now I suggest that you have a qualified TV technician do this because there are certain dangers involved in this procedure. THIS IS NOT SOMETHING YOU SHOULD TRY TO DO YOURSELF.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83,

Hi Matt.
I`ve been repairing sony tv`s for a long time now and i can tell you that what you described is sure signs of a weak picture tube.
And the price of a new picture tube makes it prohibitive to replace it. You could open the set and adjust the screen control on the high voltage transformer but it won`t last long. If you decide to do that , look for a transformer with a long and thick red wire that connects to the back of the picture tube , That is the flyback transformer and there will be two controls on it, you want to adjust the bottom control that is the screen control(the upper one is the focus).
Turn your tv on and slowly turn the screen control up until the picture shows up at a reasonable brightness level, if yout turn it to high or you may get retrace lines in the picture.
That may strech the life of your set for a couple of months .
Hope this will help. Merry Christmas

My 32'' sony wega blinks 5 times


The 5 blinks means a problem in the set's AKB (auto kine-bias) circuit. Sony TV's monitor the operation of the picture tube. When some kind of trouble has been detected, the TV blanks the screen and flashes the 5 blink error code. This may be due to problems in the video circuit, a bad picture tube, or adjustments that have changed due to aging of parts. There isn't anything I can suggest you try on your own to fix it. Because several things may cause the problem, and the proper tools and service information needed to troubleshoot, you should refer this repair to a professional.

Sony wega trinitron won't turn on


  • Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505
  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
  • and some times the eprom ic is fulty ...
  • try to unplug your tv from the main power for 5 hours then press the power button and keep pressing for 7 seconds then release ,if this do not work ,you should take your tv to a qualified person
  • i hope this helps ..

    Color variation and blinking red light on bottom of tv


    The light flashing 5 times is normal at turn on as the set is monitoring current drain on the pictures tube cathodes. Any speakers near the set that have un-shielded magnets could possibly cause color issues.
