Question about Sony KV-32S42 32" TV

1 Answer

Tv does not turn on

I was changing channels and the picture just slowly turned black ending with a white vertical line before complete going out. I tried to turn it back on and the tv won't come on, as if there was no power going to the tv. I tried plugging the tv into another outlet and I still could not turn on the tv. Is there some sort of reset button on the unit or has the tube gone bad? Please help. Thank you.

Re: tv does not turn on

You does not mean about picture clarity before this problem occurs. Former the picture clarity is well and good means picture is not problem. There is a problem in horizontal deflection area.May be flyback transformer failure shows these type of problem. This service should be done by technical persons only.

I gotta a green screen

It is possible that you have a shorted green CRT, you can remove the front speaker cover, and you will fine a focus block, and if you turn down the green screen voltage, very slowly, the green should turn down. if not then the gun (CRT) will have to be replace, If it does turn down, then go into the menu and turn the color are the way down and that should give you a black and white picture. If it is not black and white. adjust the red, blue, and green screen voltages until you receive a good black and white picture. Turn slowly they are touchy, and if turn to high, you will get retrace lines and the TV will shut down.

Tv stays black

Do you have audio and if so can you change channels to hear other programs? If so have a bad vertical IC. Have a tech turn up the screen control to see a white horizontal line. By your question I would say this will correct the problem.

Panasonic TV-Sound but no picture.

    According to the symptoms, There is a problem in vertical out section.Just check it there must be a capacitor that has been burst or leak.And second one reason could be the malfunctioning of vertical IC.Which is also in the vertical section.

Thanks for using fixya.

The set you have has a bad tuner assembly. At this point most likely you would be better off getting a new TV set. Good Luck

Rca tv no picture

You can turn up Screen control in back of set on the High Voltage Transformer and see if you see anything like a thin white line going across screen. If this is happening then it's your vertical IC output gone. It will have to be changed and a 100uf@50v cap in the same area.
