No picture tube is cheap to replace. Especially a Sony tube. And besides the cost of the tube there's the labor cost to install it and some tedious adjusting needs to be done to set up the replacement. When a picture tube fails it's time to replace the set.

Now having said all that, there are different kinds of lines that can show on the screen. Some are because the tube is bad, but others can come from less expensive parts on the circuit board in the set. Without seeing the lines for myself I can't tell you about yours. If you are wanting to keep the set, I would suggest having a qualified shop check it. The can tell you for sure if it's the tube or not, and give you an estimate for the cost of repair.

I have a sony trinitron kv-32xbr400 it works but the picture is almost like its out of focus it has lines running thru it


The description that you give indicates a video problem, it is a situation where the picture tube is over driven and makes the picture bloom and produces white lines on a angle, this is caused by an open resistor or a shorted video driver usually located on the back of the picture tube, "video board"

I have a Sony Trinitron about 7 yrs old. The picture is flashing on and off. The sound is constant. The flashing was happening about the first 5-10 minutes after turning it on then it would stop. Now its...


Hi there
Sorry to be the one to have tell you that but yes your tube is dying.
In sony tv`s the video(picture) is off until the tube has warmed up and now that it is getting weaker it has difficulty reaching the point where it will bring out the video.
If you want to clear that problem for a while , you can open the back of the set.
You will see a round transformer(flyback) with two controls on it and a thick red wire that connects to the back of the tube.
With the tv on turn the lower control up slowly , you`ll see the brilliance go up and that will help with the flashing picture for a while.
If you see lines across the picture when you adjust that control it is because you have reach the max the tube can take , just turn it back down until they disappear .
Hope this help have fun

Sony Trinitron TV now taking around 5 minutes for picture to appear (sound comes on instantly) Is it worth repair or should I cut losses and replace set?


How old is the TV?
Sony Trinitron sounds like it may be from the 1980's?
Some TV engineers can use a piece of equipment to do a "tube boost" but this is sometimes risky and can completely ruin the tube, but it's a risk you would have to take.
If the TV is over 15 years old, and has been used regularly, (like 4 hours every day or more) it seems likely that the tube has reached the end of life.
TV cathode ray tubes are like light bulbs...they do not last forever!

Sony Trinitron Picture Tube replacement


I think that you will find the picture tube to be more expensive than a replacement TV, if it is still available (unlikely). That being said, it is also unlikely that the tube itself is the problem, The more common problem is the horizontal output transistor or the flyback transformer. Either part should still be available for a reasonable cost. Check with a local servicer for the part numbers and costs. These are common parts.

I have a sony trinitron tv and the picture went blank and the tv shot off, now when I turn it on it comes on with lines across and shot off right after


Good Day, wraithtj;

Without a model number, I would say the generic problem with the TV is the CRT (picture tube).

Thanks, big IRISH.

Sony Trinitron picture tube


The correct box will be supplied for your set through the cable or satellite provider-No problem there, but what do you want with a 5 year old set other than placing bets on what will go out next? A pix tube is not cheap nor good insurance against future problems...accordianman

Hello im having problems with my sony wega


It sounds like you have a loss of green. This could be caused by the green gun in the picture tube opening up or the drive circuit for the green gun gone bad. Stargazer
