Sound like you have bad soulder conections on the board. you need to look for tht ans resolder any that you might see. Also coud be bad capasistors, but i dont think so seeing how when you hit it that fixes it for a while.

This sounds like 60hz or 120hz a/c ripple distortion. if taping tv corrects temporarily, ther must be poor solder on main a/c ripple filter. very large usually blue capacitor near power cord input on pcb. do not short positve and negative legs together as you could be shocked(even after tv is unplugged) and also cause more damage to tv. these filters can store electrical charges for days, even if unplugged the whole time. careful! mch

Kv-35xbr48 turns on fine nice picture then horizontal lines form distorting picture like interference also is the back hard to take off and put on needs a good vacum thanks for any suggestion


At first the picture is ok, and then distorted with horizontal lines i thinks. If the horzontal lines are parellel acros the screen, with an inch apart across the whole screen, your tv needs screen adjustments. Screen voltage may be high. look into the crt base also. Change it first. These also not resolve the problem, LOT may be faulty, with respect to screen focus pack. May need replacement. Try first setting screen voltage to a lower settings and observe.

Picture and text extend beyond screen


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. Good Luck! Write back if you have problems.

Picture broken and shrinking


You need to change your vertical IC, along with some capacitors around the vertical IC. Capacitor with value 220UF, 10uf, 470uf and finally 1000uf. Doing this will fix the set. Total cost under $40

Sony TV - Loss of half the picture


sarge, it sounds like the vertical output IC went bad on you. If it was a bad connection or a bad capacitor, your picture would have been a straght line across the screen. They call the output section of the IC a push-pull type of amp, so the top half of the sweep IC went out. If you have had some soldering experience, and or experience with solid state repair, locating the bad IC and replacing it is no big deal. If you havent, stay safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair, as there is alot of high voltage inside this puppy that is still present even if the set is unplugged. It should not cost an arm or a leg to repair this set. An honest repair on a set like this if you take it in should not exced 125 to 150 bucks. Good Luck PS Please dont forget to rate this thread.

Top half of screen black


The vertical circuit is going bad,this is the one in charge of opening the picture up and down,try taping on the side to see if the picture reacts ,if it does your set has a loose conection and the vertical IC will need to be resoldered only but if it does not react the IC will have to be replaced,if you are familiar with tv service this will give you a place to start but if you are not be safe and seek the help of a servicer,please let Us know how it goes.

SONY KV-27FV310: UPPER HALF OF SCREEN IS BLACK


You have a vert sweep problem and unless you know how to trouble shoot this cuircit bring it to a pro. I found out mostly in these sets that the vert output IC is bad.. Also sometimes the b+ filter cap off the fly is leaky and made the IC to fail. Another thing is Im surprised to hear you got a pic with the vert failure and a bright line in the pic!! This could be a big problem when the sets fixed so dont run it too long like this. It could burn a line all the way across the screen and you will see a dark faint line in your pic because of this. BE CAREFULL!!
