Re: no picture

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but what you have is the Sony classic bad picture tube. All the events which you described were coincicence. When a Sony picture tube is weak there is a circuit which detects emission from the guns , if the emission is low, a video blanking signal is applied. Sometimes you can turn the screen up (inside of TV, Not recommeded for non-technicians. an you may get a watchable picture. This however is not a fix. The picture tube is bad. Replacment exceeds value of unit Sorry. Scrivitron

I have a 50" flat screen tv. Sat dish is hooked to


Of course it is important to make all connections right, and I assume, since you have sound, that you did all the wiring OK.
But also important is to orientate very precisely the sat dish. In order to do so you need some devices and skills. Better ask a local professional to do that.

Best regards,

Once the TV is turned on, the sound and picture disappears and replaced by a blank screen. If one turns it off again and on imediately the picture and sound returns. This may happen several times in a row,...

Could be ethier one the dish box or the tv itself have cold solders joints on the FBT-Flyback transformer.That the big black block of plastic with a red wire with a black cap hook to the CRT-(tv tube).Call ur tv Dish box customer service,get a replacement box.See, if this will solved ur tv problems.If not,than the tv must be taken aparts and must have tools like a soldering iron,a roll of solders,also must know basic soldering.Resolders all the coldsolders joints on the FBT for a better High voltages contact to the CRT-(tv tube).This problems,will be solved.

Dark horizontal line scrolling up from bottom of screen

if you are using a cable box .. then disconnect everything that is feeding signals into the tv ... then get a signal from some other source (like off the air antenna or video camera) ... if the tv still has the dark lines then you have a bad primary filter capacitor in its power supply .. if it works ok off the air and only does it when the cable box is hooked up .. then the cable box has an open primary filter capacitor . ... the dark horizontal bars you see is ripple from the rectified AC power that is not properly filtered ... if the TVs verticle scan rate is 60 hz and the full wave rectified AC amounts to 120 hz ripple then you will see two dark bars across the picture ... since the two signals are not syncronized then they will slip in phase with respect to each other .. thus the constantly moving pattern ..

I have a 20 inch sanyo hd digital hooked up as a second tv on dish network receiver. I had to unhook it temp and when I hooked it back up, no picture. I tried channel scan and nothing. How can I get the tv...

bring the tv out to the main tv and hook it up to that connection to determine if it's the TV or the connection. Or try hooking up a VCR to the tv while the TV is set to CH 3. Do you get a blank picture or a snowy Picture?

Unhooked the TV,took it to another room, hooked it up, just fuzz

Make sure the cable you now have hooked up to TV is actually hooked up to the dish. If you're sure it is then take the TV back to original location and hook it back up. If it works in that location you have a bad cable. If it still doesn't work it's the TV. The only other thing I can suggest is that some TV's must autotune before a picture can be shown. If you're sure you have a ggod signal go to the TV menu and do an auto tune or auto search. The TV will then go thru all the different possibilities looking for signals. Once it has completed the search it will then give you a picture. You can then go and add/delete channels and set it up however you want.
