Question about Sony KP-61S75 TV

1 Answer

Picture goes out periodically

The picture will become yellow and distorted and stay that way for a few minutes to a half hour then come back to normal. I don't know if there is an inexpensive solution before I am forced to buy another TV. Doesn't happen everyday, but enough to be a concern. Also don't know if it tends to happen only if it has been on a while, but would assume when it has been an hour or more. Thanks for the help.

Re: Picture goes out periodically

Sound like color problems, could be convergence going out. Not quite sure of yellow color, but you could be loosing one of the 3 colors red blue green, this could be why you see yellow.

TV goes to green, sound stays on a few seconds then TV shuts off.

Sounds like you have a bad picture tube. More than likely the CRT could be shorted, which would cause the set to shut down.
My first advise would be to power up the set with an isolation transformer with the voltage about 60% approx. 72 Volts AC, and monitor what happens when you increase the voltage slowly.
If the set remains on at 60 -70 %, then when increased to 90 - 100% it shuts down, you have something drawing too much current ( which could be the CRT )

Picture goes off

A temporary solution is to unplug the TV for a few minutes, remove static from the glass with your hand. It is important to unplug rather than turn off. If you have a degauss button you can also press that before unplugging. Wait several minutes or an hour. Then plug it back in. If you have Picture in Picture it may be an issue with that and to permanently solve may need a repair person. The unplugging may get you by for a few days at a time. That's at least better than an hour.

Picture goes out, sound stays on

I am not familar with that particular set, but this is what I would check (assuming you don't have a surround sound system hooked up to it as it would sound like a tuner problem otherwise). If you have external Audio/Video jacks with cables hooked up to the Direct TV box, move the video cable and see if you lose video when it is jiggled. If so, you either have a bad cable or connection/connector. When you say you have to turn the TV off for about 30 minutes, do you leave the directTV box on? If so, then the problem seems to be with the TV. Otherwise, maybe the direct TV box is at fault -- leave the TV on and turn off the cable box for a half hour and try it again. You have a few possibilities here, good luck.
