Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-30HS420 30" TV

3 Answers

Picture Fades to Black

We have been encountering a problem with our Sony KV30HS420 TV recently. Everything will be working fine and all of a sudden the screen will fade out to black. The little red light on the front of the tv at the power switch will start blinking. All we have to do is hit the power button on the remote and it will fire back up and everything will be fine again. The problem is intermittant and it can be anywhere from five minutes to umpteen hours before the problem recurs. I cannot speak for the sound since it comes through the seperate sound system. This seems to be more frequent when the set is first turned on and has been sitting off for a long time. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. We have had this set for about two years and need to decide whether it is worth fixing, or replacing.

    We have the exact same problem. We also have a Sony, and this has just started happening. The blinking light comes on, and we turn it back on by pushing the button on the TV. What is the problem?

    We have a good old Sony Trinitron 29" CRT here and since this week (I mean this TV is about 15years? old) the picture randomly fades to black. I think this doesn't happen when it's always in standby instead of turning it completely off.

    But don't know where this problem comes from. We knocked on it a bit and the picture comes back for 1-5minutes but then it disappears again...

    I think we have to buy a new TFT but don't wanted to buy a new one so soon ;).

The problem is very common the blinking power indicates bad soldered or theres a loosen part somewhere around in the power supply or in the IC system. i had encountered before with this kind of problem what i did i just resoldered the board that i mention aboved then the problem solved.

Sounds to me like a bad solder connection. I would suspect the crt filiments first, since you said it fades out. Could be bad solder connections any number of places.

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.

Hello,For model KV-40XBR800,

Pls check following area.

Low HV Shutdown:
On the D Board.

Hi,
Symptom shows Lamp is weak in result and causing restart of TV again and again. Your TV requires new lamp as per following part number...
A1085447A* LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2200U
It is available in Sony Accessories Store for $200 and replacement procedure is written in instruction manual of TV.

Always buy Sony original lamp for TV and avoid aftermarket / cheap lamp for TV safety.

Sony KPR-53EXR15 pictures fades in and out


Sounds like possibly it could be connection related between any AV/Cable ports. Worst case would be the capacitors of the motherboard leaking. It's possible to fix anything. Just make sure you have the knowledge and the right equipment.

This link has the instructions on how to fix this problem and other similar problems. You have nothing to lose, so I recommend that you try it.

This works with the two other colors, blue and green also. Not all models of Sony Projection TVs have the red, green, and blue pots in the same order as the picture that is listed on this link, so you may want to google search for your model's service manual. The service manual can also help you be able to remove the cover for your particular model of TV. I was able to find the service manual for my model, and sure enough, the order of the pots are reversed on mine, so I would have been adjusting the wrong color. Read all of the comments on this link too, because you can find other helpful tips and may even find someone with the same model of TV as you that gives more specific instructions for your model.

You may also find your model's service manual here:

I hope this helps you!
Fare well. :)

Have you tried replacing the cable that connects the PS2 to your TV? Might be something wrong with the video portion of the connector.

I have a 52" zenith plasma tv and it has gone black and fades into a vague darker picture after a while.....everything is fine accept for the pic


the ICs or the capacitors on the main board of the tv which controls the picture quality of the tv.is either gone loose and needs resoldering.or it is going through its last phase so further problem can occur if it gets completely faulty.get it replaced before it gets completely faulty.to avoid the further problems.

Picture Problem


Your TV's tuner is the problem. 1st thing to try is just to sesolder its connections to the main circuit board. If that doesn't work replace the tuner. Also could put a meter on the power coming into the tuner and see if it is drooping in sync with your picture. Tuners are not that expensive to replace.

Component Video Problem


The problem is not with your tv it's with your dvd player. You have to go into the setup on the dvd player and change your output setting to component.
