I have a Sony Bravia LCD TV KDL-32P300. I'm having trouble getting the settings correct, as the picture doesn't fit the screen. I have tried all the different widescreen settings, but some of the picture still can't fit into the screen. How do I fix this? Also, where can I get hold a an instruction booklet for my tv, as I have lost the one that came with the tv. Thanks, -AJ-

You have this listed under a heading for a conventional CRT (picture tube) set. CRT sets don't have a lamp, but the picture tube does have a filament like a light bulb. The filament can burn out so the tube doesn't work any more. Other problems can cause the screen to be shut off, though. If the trouble you're having is that there is no picture, you won't fix it by replacing a lamp. There isn't much (actually, nothing) most consumers can do to repair a modern TV. It usually needs service by a professional with the tools and experience to diagnose the trouble and repair the set
There's trouble in the set's vertical output circuit. Often this is because of bad solder connection, but there could be parts that need to be replaced as well. It isn't the picture tube going bad, though, so the set could be fixed. (Actually, even a bad picture tube can be replaced, but when the tube goes it's cheaper to buy a new TV!) Often just resoldering the connections in the affected area brings the picture back to full height. It's not unusual for capacitors in that area to wear out with age, but they're inexpensive parts.
The trouble with TV repairs is the labor cost. If you don't know anyone who has the skills to check over a circuit board and do electronic soldering, and to check and replace parts, you'll need to have a professional do it. The total cost of repairing a small TV might make it worth spending a little more on a new flat-screen LCD. They've really come down in price.
Most shops charge a fee (applied to the repair if you go ahead) to check the set and give a repair estimate. If you don't mind the gamble, get the set checked. Otherwise, start looking for a good sale on something new.
The two blink code means the set is turning off because of over-current protection. This, along with your saying that the screen turns orange before the set shuts off, leads me to think your picture tube is bad. What's probably happening is that as the tube heats up (there's a filament like that in a light bulb in the neck of a conventional picture tube) one of the metal elements moves and touches something it shouldn't. This then lets high voltage from the tube get to places it shouldn't and the protection circuit kicks in.
There's no fix for this other than to replace the picture tube. It would be far less expensive to buy a new LCD or plasma TV than to buy a replacement Sony tube. And the replacement tube then needs convergence to get the red, green and blue color beams properly aligned and adjustments to get them balanced. Work done in the field seldom looks as good as the factory job, and it can be disappointing. The LCD or plasma sets don't have these issues.
Now might be a good time to start checking sale prices.
You have a cracked solder joint on your TV circuit board. Only if you are competent to do so, the circuit pcb needs inspection and the offending joint resoldering. This is usually around the power supply area and the Line output transformer. If not competent to carry out the inspection, get a qualified TV engineer to look at it. Hope this helps :)
Your tv needs to be put into service mode with the original Sony remote control and then set the vertical\horizontal size parameter to the correct values and then burn the new settings to memory Google " sony tv service mode " and you should find the procedure.
