Question about Sony KP-41T65 41" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV smokes when you turn it on and no picture

I have a Sony KP-41T65. It went out the other day while watching it. I pulled the back off of it and turned the power on. I could see about half way back on the left hand side a small silver/grey looking piece soddered to the circuit board. That is the piece that is smoking when turned on. I don't know if it has anything to do with the TV not having a picture or sound. You do hear a click through the speakers when the TvV is turned on. Do you think this is the only problem and is it costly.

Check to see where the smoke is comming from, the far left side of the unit, it is probably the flyback/horizontal output transformer. The big gray/black thing on the board with the two red wires out of the top of it.Replace the horizontal output transistor (D2348) with a new one to increase reliability. It is the large three leged transistor to the left of the transformer. Use Sony parts if possible.

The convergence IC's on your set have failed. There are several web pages that detail how you can replace these IC's by yourself. Do a websearch for convergence problems and you will find your instructions. This webpage gives instructions on replacing the IC's on a Mitsubishi but it is similar to the Sony:

Sony KP-41T15 Color problem


Does this happen when you play a dvd? if so your RED, GRENN, and BLUE lenses in the tv may be out of alingment. First try pulling the power on the tv (make sure the tv is turned off first) wait about 2 min. then plug it back in. If this stil continues, then what i said earlier may be the case and sorry to say unless you have a warranty you will be better off to buy a new tv. Now days it costs more to repair a tv than to buy a new one. And it could very well be the receiver
