KV-32S45 Disappearing Picture, Good Sound

My Sony KV-32S45 has worked great for years, no problems. Just a few days ago, the picture started disappearing. The TV turns on fine (red light flashes for a few seconds before picture appears), and will work great for about 5 minutes. Then the picture gets compressed to the upper third of the screen, in kind of a trapezoid shape. The picture is full width at the top, and only a few inches less than the screen width at the bottom of the picture. The picture wavers quite a bit during this time. This usually lasts for 2-5 seconds, and then the screen goes blank (no flashing red light though). The sound is working fine the whole time. I've read through solutions to similar problems, but this one seems unique enough that I'm not sure of the solution. I do have a service manual that I found free on the web, with instructions on how to safely open up the chassis and replace parts. I am also comfortable enough with a voltmeter and soldering iron that I feel I can do some minor repairs. I'm just not sure where to start. Anyone have any ideas? Is this something that can be fixed with adjustments or do I need to order replacement parts? Also, if this is fixable with replacement parts, can anyone suggest a good place to order from?

    Thanks tony91, you are the second person to tell me this. Just in case someone else needs this information in the future, on my schematics, it is actually a 7-pin IC: TDA8172. It is marked as V-OUT, Ref # IC561 for this model, the Sony Part Number is 8-759-980-58. I was able to find the part in stock at Tritronics for $15.36.

    Finally got around to working on the TV last weekend, I replaced the IC, as well as 2 capacitors and a resistor:

    REF NO PART NO DESCR REMARK
    ------ ------------ ----- -------------------
    C561 1-126-967-11 ELECT 47MF 20% 50V ($2.14)
    C565 1-126-969-11 ELECT 220MF 20% 50V ($4.57)
    R565 1-215-890-11 METAL 470 5% 2W ($1.07)

    I was able to purchase these parts through Sony:https://servicesplus.us.sony.biz/sony-pa...

    TV is working great now!

Lightly tap circuit board using any non conductive thing like plastic ruler or wooden stick. If picture apears then look for bad or cold solders. Resolder all Vert. IC pins.

Sony KV-32S45 turns on at first, than blinks out, still sound


I would look for intermitent solder connections on the small horizonal driver transformer as well as other HV Componets.(HV Transformer etc.) Also solder up the Vetical output IC. These have been common causes of failures. I would not use the set until these have been checked and soldered. If you don't, a massive failure of the hoizonal circuit and powersupply will occur.
Hope this helps,

Picture stays on for 3 mins, then slowly disappears


sounds like the filament of the picture tube is losing voltage. normally this would be caused by a bad/broken/cracked solder connection. If this is the problem, it may not be too dificult to fix if you have the soldering skills and know what to look for.

Picture Flashes off and on


probably the tv has a loose solder in the board. this is normal especially when tv is aging. most of the components inside are emitting heat resulting to loose the solder. try to inspect and resolder if possible. but if you dont have the proper tools and equipment and you're not inclined with this kind of job, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!

Sony KV-32S40 32" TV problem


intermittent problems can usuall be liked to bad solder connections. And sony typically has some that will develop after a few years in the power supply. so check for bad sodler connections throught the main board & give a close look to the power supply & check you work after to make sure you have no shorted pins. good luck.

Sony tv picture keeps flashing


You likely have bad solder connections around the tuner area. This model has a history of problems in that area or the tuner itself.
