Question about Sony Televison & Video

1 Answer

TV screen goes black but tv is on. But will stay on sometimes.

Turn TV on. Set input to and open AV input. leave there for 10 or so minutes. Then turn to an AV input with a DVD connected and it will often play for the entire DVD. But turn the TV on and set to a channel input and the screen will go black within just a few seconds but the tv power is still on. If you are on a tv channel and ithe screen goes black,you can select another channel and the picture returns on the channel slected but then again goes black after a few seconds. Sometimes after leaving it on, and set to an open AV input for a while you can then select the antenna input and watch the channel for sometime and then it will go black until you select another channel & the picture returns but will not necessarily stay on.

I have a 2000ish 32 inch trinitron Wega and i have had the EXACT same problems as you have, except mine was blacking out more and more frequently, but yes if u changes the channel or hit return onto the same channel you're watchin the picture wil come back, but not very long, about the longest it'll show a steady picture is 1/2 hr, but it's usualy going black within every 10-15 mins or so.

I took it to a Sony approved/recommened repair shop and aftet having a look i was told it would cost $200 cd including taxes to replace a 'vacuum tube' or something like that, i wish i could be more specific anout the part. I'm still considering whether or not to go through with the repair. I might just buy a working/used newer Tube Flascreen with HD for another couple hundred dollars. If there was a newer 2003+ 32 or 36" Sony that has a good track record I would love to hear suggestions. I don' trust flat panels, way too mny horror stories, and for every 1 i hear about there's probably 10-20 more.I'll give them another 5 years or so to get their acts together.

On the other had, if i do decide to get my 32" wega fixed i will post the results and the exact pt numbers of the pts used i the repair. Your problem is exactly the same as mine, to the letter. I'm a mechanic by trade, but i have a good feeling they're not going to give me correct pt # until i have payed them to fix it. Or else i'd order the part and install it myself.

Good Luck,
Aaron

TV picture goes out after 10 minutes of viewing with popping sound


It can be a couple things. Something bad on the power board. Or the vertical output circuit. How long ago did you purchase the television. Your best course of action is to have it serviced.
If you need any information or other assistance let me know.
Thanks,
Lee

TV screen goes blank but power stays on


Sounds like the CRTs are going into protective blanking due to the vertical output ic needing to be resolderd. Try resoldering the vertical IC that may possibly fix the issue.

Tevion DVD player Model TDR1602HD (Aldi)


Turn the player OFF at the mains, leave it off for a few minutes. Power it up again. If the problem is still there, it's time for a service! The TEVION logo should display at turnon when no disc is in the unit. If that comes up, then try a disc.
This is assuming you have everything connected correctly. And the player should be the ONLY device connected to any particular AV input.
You might also try it on another TV.. maybe the TV is the problem?
