    You reckon?

    when the green and blue bulbs works without the red, and the red is over powered when all connected??

    Where should be the loss connection? Main board or base of the tube.

    I will rate you and hope that I can give some help too.

    I did play around on the mother and the board on the neck of the tube and solde a few point, but did nothing really then I try to shake it (looking for bad contact, nothing again...

    I found between the blue and green tube a plastic box with 6 poties, 3 are for the power of each bulb and the other three for the definition of the picture.

    Playing with those tree first I was able to get a reasonable good picture but with a light red shadow.

    So the problem is not solve but I've got the TV back.

    Before finding this "by pass" solution I saw the stand bye led 6 times blinking.

    Diagnosis: Low B OCP/OVP(Overcurrent/aver Voltage).Possible causes :5+line is overloaded.(A,B boards), +5 line is shorted.

    The sony is a KPFS 53 M31, and I'm not sure that I found the right diagnosis, Can You Confirm if this diagnosis for this TV is right? And Where can I get some more details about the A and B boards? Do you have a ready fix for this problem?

    Those are my last question, promise :)

    Thanks for you help..

    Not really satisfied, when I pay for an expert I expecte more details and not the ready answers who's fitting 95% of TV problems.
    But he recommand me someone else so the contact is good.
    I suggest when you don't know, don't answer, especially when we pay for assistance.

My Sony trinitron drc-mf has now got a sort of negative screen (reddish black) with the actual picture of the DVD player,satellite TV,video ....etc but the menu,channel numbers........etc are all normal

If the Menu Display is normal. DRC module is faulty.This module is installed vertically and has a stainless steel cover, beside Tuner module. If you can do, try to remove the DRC Module,and clean its terminals with paintbrush then put it back properly, if it doesn't work replace the DRC module.

Picture changes focus/sharpness instantly and then recorrects


You can try and get more infornation for me.

Go into the the menu by pressing the WEGA GATE button on the remote. In the sub menu of picture adjustment switch the DRC-MF setting to off. It should read normal.

See if this stoppes your focus problem.

If it changes let me know for further directions.
