Question about Sony KV-35V36 35" TV

2 Answers

Sony 35inch Trinitron Color TV

Our Sony Trinitron Color TV, model # KV-35V65 serial # 9006079 was working in the morning. After we turned it off and eventually turned it back on (over 8 hour period) it wouldnt come on (no picture or sound) and the red light for the "stand by timer flash" was flashing.. So we unplugged the set and replugged it back in and still no picture or sound. We made sure all the connectors were secured. Our tv is hooked up to Dish Network , so we called them to see if the problem was with the receiver but in order to check there product(receiver) the TV has to show a screen and there isnt anything on the screen except it looking like it is not on... So Dish Network couldnt verify if there product was the problem.. We have had our TV set for a long time (cant remember when we bought it). I did save the "operating instructions" and its dated 1998. It has never given us any problem until now... We already know they do not sale this set anymore. Can this TV be fixed? Is it worth fixing?

    Thanks for responding to our email.

    We turned the TV around and on the back where its lists model number and serial number etc. there were'nt any chassis numbers you listed....we looked everywhere.

    The led flashes steadily.. There isnt any type of pattern or delay, just flashes steadily.

    On our operating instrucions manual dated 1998 it does list other model numbers besides the model number on our TV which is KV-35V65. Here are the other numbers they list... KV-32S40, KV-32S45, KV-32S65, KV-32V40, KV-32V65, KV-35S40, KV-35S45, KV-35S65, KV-35V65.

    Unfortunatley, there hasnt been a solution to our T.V. delima.   I did log onto the Sony Site and asked for there any suggestions and they eventually responded by saying to unplug the set completely and replug it back in. Meaning they told me if I was using a surge protector to unplug the set from that and plug the set right into the wall outlet waiting about 10 seconds.  So I did and that still didnt help.  They did give me a couple of phone numbers for sony repair shops in my area and I went ahead and called one of them.  After I got ahold of someone they told me that they wouldnt start to work on a T.V. set that was eight years old.  I told them my set was ten years old and they replied saying that it had a good life..  During my conversation with them they asked what patterns of the T.V. was happening.. I explained to them about the blinking light and that it just kept blinking continuously and that it didnt have any type of blinking pattern.  They said since it was a steady blinking pattern that definatley the set was not getting enough juice through it.  So we decided not to take it in to try and get it repaired...

    My tv picture screen blinks when turn on, A few mins later it stays on but blinks onece in while.

    We have the same exact problem. We were watching tv and it went out. No sound and no picture and the stand by red light keeps flashing. Any ideas yet on how to resolve this? I have tried pressing different combinations on our remote and sometimes it results in the red light to go off but still no sound or picture.

Hi. I dont recognise that model number. Take a look at the rear of set & see if there is a chassis number eg AE1. AE1A, AE1B, AE1C, AE2, AE2A, AE5, AE3B, BE2, BE2A,BE3, DE1, F1, FX, These are some of the common older chassis. You say led flashes does it flash 2, 3, 4, 5, times etc then pause then repeat ?

    Im really sorry but I dont recognise any of those models.
    Im in the UK & those model number are different to sony tv sets we have here.
    I was hoping there would be a chasis number as then I could help, The chasis would be the same or very similar regardless of what country they were sold in.
    Hopefully A tech from your country will answer your question.

Try hooking up a vcr or dvd player that you know works.The TV "thinks" it's not getting a signal. Be sure the TV's on ch #3 or #4, depending on the output channel for the vcr. If you see/hear the tape on TV you know the TV's ok and the problem's in reception, maybe a loose connection.

Sony Trinitron Color TV KV-35V65 - No Picture, red light stand/by timer flashing

A reset won't fix this. The standby light should be blinking a repeated count with a 3 second pause inbetween. Post that count here. That will indicate the circuit/condition that is preventing the set from turning on.

Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-24FS120 24" TV Color changes

Try turning down (off) the color during such an episode. If the image is tinted pink or green instead of black and white when you do this,you have either an intermittent short in your CRT (tube), which is terminal,or a gun drive problem, which may be repairable. If you're feeding it component instead of composite signal,it may just be a bad connection of the B-Y cable.
