1996 Sony 32" Trinitron - Suddenly lost picture and sound

Never had a problem. Set was on and suddenly went dead as if the set had just been turned off. No response from TV panel or remote. I've reviewed similiar situations on the knowledge board and it seems as if my first response should be to check the internal fuse. Any suggestions would be helpful

The most common problem with TV was the failure of the Horizontal Output Transistor, this will also damage 2 transistors in the power supply and a resistor in the power supply also. (From memory): Horizontal Output location # Q501, 2 power supply transistors Locations Q601, Q602, and resistor Location R607. Also solder the Horizontal drive transformer, you can find it by following the circuit board from the base of the Horizontal output. Some models used an IC instead of the 2 transistors in the powersupply, it will have six legs and check like 2 transistors. Good Luck.

In time as the Sony Trinitron ages it begins to have power issues. While this can be true of most tube televisions it's the rate and severity at which this happens to Trinitrons that makes it particularly of note. Many Trinitron owners have complained of the Trinitron set turning itself off randomly and frequently. Some sets have failed to stay on for longer than a few minutes at a time. Eventually some sets will not turn on at all. These problems grow more severe with age.

Check the power cable running from the Sony Trinitron 32. Make sure the cable is completely inserted into the power connection on the rear of the TV as well as the local power outlet.

Disconnect the power cable from the electrical outlet, then plug it into a different connection. It is possible to electrical outlet has died, forcing you to obtain a power current from a different source.

Check the cable connection running from the cable/satellite receiver or VCR. If the TV is on but no picture is on the screen, the problem is most likely due to a connection issue.

Power off the cable/satellite receiver, then press the "Video" button on the remote control to switch the Trinitron 32 to the video input signal. Turn on the cable/satellite receiver and the programming now loads onto the television screen.

Picture went blank during viewing

Not too many things you can do without an understanding of the circuitry in a CRT TV but there is a good chance that the failure has occurred in the high voltage area and a few things need to be measured there to find which of them has failed. Catastrophic failure of the CRT (picture tube) are rare anymore but do happen now and then.
If the flyback (horizontal output transformer) has bitten the dust, they are becoming hard to find and much more expensive than 10 years ago. Additionally, those don't normally fail alone but are killed by or kill, other components, which also need to be verified before replacing anything.   
Even with the HV section dead, there are lethal voltages present inside when turned on and not always in places that look dangerous.

Picture is all different flashing colors

Maybe you put magnet near to your TV or something that can produce magnetism.... if not the deguassing system is not functioning anymore. .. bring your unit to near service in your place.

No picture and no sound,

Something shorted and shut your set down. Most likely the high voltage transformer shorted which also shorted the horizontal output transistor. Stargazer
