Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-20FS120 20" TV

Sony trinitron KV G21S2(i think)

Hi I have a Sont Trinitron... I have absolutely no knowledge about what type of tv it is. All i know it older than 10 years and i dunt even think it is a flat screen. I think the model is sony trinitron KV G21S2, about 15inches. Recently I think a fuse blew as I tried to turn the tv by pressing the main power button on the tv as it couldnt be switched on by remote or other means. As i pressed the main button I saw a small flash like explosion in the back. Now the tv cant turn on, and no light is emitted (near the main power button). What happened and is there any way of fixing it? Please reply back and comments will be greatly appreciated.

Re: sony trinitron KV G21S2(i think)

Id you have no TV repair experience, play it safe and take the set into an authorized Sony repair place to estimate the cost to repair. Yes I know it would be nice to repair, but how much do you know about component level printed circuit board repair? You will need to first get a service manual, know how to read a circuit diagram, thats a schematic, and know how every circuit works with each other to make the TV set operate. I do appriciate the fact you would like to repair this yourself, but there is no magic fix in most cases when it comes to electronics. There is circuit diagnosise involved. Best advice would be to call in a pro to assist you in these types of repairs. Good Luck

No Display, no sound- not working, showing dead. But input Power is ok. Picture tube filamment not getting power. model sony KV-2192M3

Check the input fuse first. If it is blown, there will be some short inside the power regulator circuit. Usually Sony sets uses STR regulated power supply. You can see this STR, and Ic, screwed onto a heatsink. Replace it with a same type and number. Before replacing the STR, check the diodes used in that section for damage, mainlu zener diodes. They might get shorted along the blowing of the STR. Check that section throughly before resoldering the new STR.
If any further assistance you needs, get me through Fixya. Ok.

My sony trinitron turns off by itself and then the stand by light blinks five times then pauses for like 4 seconds then flashes 5 times and repeats

This is picture tube related problem and we call it incorrect white balance.
Adjust Screen Volts of picture tube and control knob wold be located on flyback transformer. If you have knowledge about tv and know that tv contains high voltage and you can take care of that then do it yourself or ask local tv repairman to fix it.

About Sony Trinitron KV-28LS36B

there are two possible defects in your circuit. 

However, if the led blinks for about 10 times your tuner is defective 90%. 

You will need a scope to check or you will need to take it in for service.
