Question about Sony KV-35S42 35" TV

1 Answer

Tv Flashes When turning my tv on, it takes about 5 minutes to get any picture at all, then it takes about another 10 minutes with the picture flashing on and off, until it finally settles. I am noticing it getting worse every time. It now also seems to flash on and off if the picture on the screen is too bright or action-filled.

Tv flashes on and off

If it is 10 to 15 years old, the CRT is weak or failing. A qualified technician may be able to improve the CRT, but it usually only lasts several months. Probably time for a new TV.

TV popped and shut off red light flashes 5 times then pauses

this specific type of TVs flash their standby light if the onboard testing system sniffed out a problem

so, as if your TV is trying to tell you "i have a problem and i need to be serviced"

i hope it goes well for you

Could be a weak Picture tube . You can try turning up the screen control but don't turn it up too much you'll get retrace lines in the picture . Turn it alittle at time until picture comes on then turn it down until the retrace lines go away . Then try turning the tv on and off to make sure it comes back on. Be careful you can get shocked if you do this while it is on and you touch one of the circuits . The control is on the flyback or the module thats on the picture tube it will say screen by it . If this does not work you could have vidoe problems or just the picture is no good . Good luck

When set if first turned on, the stereo/stand-by light (red) flashes on/off until just before picture first appears .if your tv is very old than it might be due to crt getting weak crt base loose loose contact in power supply thanks

Picture Flashes off and on

probably the tv has a loose solder in the board. this is normal especially when tv is aging. most of the components inside are emitting heat resulting to loose the solder. try to inspect and resolder if possible. but if you dont have the proper tools and equipment and you're not inclined with this kind of job, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!
