Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS420 36" TV

1 Answer

Top of screen slants on the right and left side horizontally

I bought a used Sony Trinitron 36'' CRT HD tv. When I watch a movie or something that shows the black border at the top, I notice that the screen image line is not staight.

It has a slight drop (curves downward) on the left and right side. It is only about 1/4'' drop on both sides but it is noticiable.

Any ideas?

    Technician says he thinks it's the Yoke. They tried to adjust but not much they can do.

My 2003 sony trinitron will not power up it flashes on stdbandby

What color does it flash on standby? May have something to do with the power supply on the PCB, flyback, horizontal output transistor, or bad solder joints. If you're not familiar with repairing CRT tv's get it repaired so our waste lands don't fill up with CRT tv's. It's becoming a huge problem thanks to LCD's etc. People are throwing them away left and right.
