Question about Sony KV-32FS13 TV

Sony kv35s26 TV: no picture, audio works, stanby light blinks.

I have a Sony Trinitron kv35s26 (made August 1997) and recently the picture went out. When the TV is powered on, I have audio, no video, and the red standby light located on the front of the TV blinks on & off. I can change channels and the audio changes.

Have you heard of this problem before? I’m pretty handy with a multi-meter if there are test points to check to determine the problem. Do you know where I can get a schematic of the TV?

Thanks, Jim

    The red light continuously blinks, I don't see a pattern.

    The TV has been unplugged for over 24 hours. I removed the back cover and noticed the circuit card attached to the end of the picture tube was loose and half way falling off. The picture attached is similar to what my TV has, so I pushed the white (circled in black) connect into place and the TV picture came on for about 5 seconds and when blank again. I still have audio and the red standby light blinks continuously. I’m not sure if I bumped the card when I was removing the back cover.

    I located the screen control and turned it clockwise, no picture appeared.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks, Jim

    I have the same problem with my 11 year old Sony kv35s26. no picture, audio works, standby light blinks for a while. Picture will show up when I first turn it on, then after 30-60 seconds, lines across the screen then very quickly no picture. Sony 800 number asked me to adjust the "menu" but I can't see the menu. They thought it could be the picture tube. Should I move on and get something new?

First a couple of questions:

1) Does the standby light blink continuously or is there a repeating pattern?

2) If there is a pattern, can you please post the blink count?

With the above information, I should be able to provide you with a couple of possibilities as well as a few tests to perform. Please update this and we'll continue to try and resolve this.

    OK. That helps too!!

    If you are comfortable working inside the set, try the following:

    Open up the back and turn on the set. You will see in the lower right hand side (when viewed from the back) a large part with a red wire coming out the top. That is the flyback transformer. There are 33,000 Volts there so be careful. That part should have 2 controls facing you. The top one should be embossed screen and the other Focus. (I may have these backwards but they are both marked). Turn the Screen control slightly clockwise (as viewed from the back). Does the picture appear? If so, then the picture tube is starting to fail and by turning up the screen, you will have time to find a replacement. If that does not help, update this and I will look up the model in the meantime for other ideas.

Hi my name is jeremy snow and i have recently had problems with my sony trinitron xbr 1997. lately the picture like scrunches up into the top of the screen and the tv just goes black and now like sometimes...

You have two problems. Dry joints causing the no picture and capacitors causing the frame cramping.
A 680uF 35Volt capacitor will fix the frame cramping and re soldering underneath almost everywhere will solve the intermittant picture fault.

My triniton wega tv 32 inch flashes 5 times and i lose the picture then it comes back on lasts awhile then lose the picture again flashes 5 times again over and over

you can ensure the connection and Heater's voltage, start from Flyback transformer ( Heater Pin) to Heater of the CRT tube, whether exist and normal ( Include : check Resistor in Heater area), perhaps there is lost connection for a while and connect gain. There should be 5 Volt AC available. otherwise check the socket of CRT Tube, unplug and clean it. If there is any question you can ask me and clarification with detail result from my solution.

My Sony Trinitron only turn on when After 5 and up hours..

1. Your TV has a weak picture tube, the beam current detection circuit muted the video, you may rejuvenate the CRT, or turn up screen control (located on the fly back transformer) a little it may help.
2. Other thing is that to check out is there any dry-out electrolytic capacitors in the main power supply circuit.

The simplest is Video out an the DVD to Video in on TV, Yellow, red and white. If the TV has component input this is better. That is Green, blue and red for the video plus red and white for the audio.

TV does not turn on.

Sorry, it sounds like to me that the power supply or high voltage circuits have failed. You will need to take it to repair shop.
