Re: Gap in screen
What do you mean "Gap in screen"?
Is it that there sis loss of picture information for a 2" wide strip, somewhere at the top of the picture, or is that there a reduction in hieght of the image?

You could try cleaning out the dust if you're hearing any crackling, other than that looks like a dead tube. If it is the tube, you would be better off getting a new TV, as tubes are a bit pricey, and those CRT TV's really run up your bill.
IN THIS SONY TV KV- XJ29M80, IM FACING A PROBLEM THAT SET GOES TO ERROR MODE WITHIN FEW SEC'S AFTER GETTING IT ON, AND THE LED INDICATES 2 BLINKS AND GAP AND AGAIN 2 BLINKS AND CONTINUES..PLZ HELP ME ...I WAS FOUND THE HORIZONTAL OUTPUT TRANSISTOR BLOWN AND THE 1.2 OHM RESISTANCE ALSO FOUND BLOWN...I REPLACED THE BOTH BUT THE PROBLEM IS CONTINUE...
dear, you can check that transformers out put before connecting to a tv. also when its connected to a tv.
get a avo meter and connect in series with a tv.
observe the current on the intial switch on and when the picture goes. if you notice that current on intial switching is high and then it starts going lower and lower, then change the transformer.
but if the current starts going up from the intial current then check the power supply components of the tv.
thanks for asking fixya.
This looks like Pincushion problem. nothing you can do. Only a Trained technecian can do this adjustment to reproduce a perfectly aligned image. It requires a pattern Generator and other tools. call the company tech.
Im sorry to tell you my freind, these sets are so common for the tubes to cause this problem.. The repair guy should have told you that they shot the tube and there is no warranty on a repair such as this.. Do yourseld your wife and your wallet a favor. get rid of this set as they will string you along so far till you get fed up. Again no disrespect intended at all. Just some freindly insite. Good Luck
