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.

    We did some research on line and looked like it may be the IC that needs replaced and it looks like it would cost between $300 - $900 with labor and parts. My wife believes it was more black and white than yellow.

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.

Vizio TV has purple haze and colored stripes on the sides of the picture.


You possibly have a failing hi-voltage module or fly-back transformer going bad. If it has a fly-back transformer, It's not worth the trouble. Some repair shops will sell you a module. Call a repair shop for help.

Samsung LE40R7 colors got distorted (they have become electric similar to this example http://vickismithartist.com/images/paintings/azofadifferentcolor2009.png ). Next day they were back to normal, but...


Distorted picture issues are almost always caused by a bad tcon board, match the part number on the board not the model number if you order a new one

Only half an hour ups works.


an UPS is only designed to prevent data loss while transitioning from grid to generator power.

They run on battery. Some work for as few as 10 minutes. Others as long as an hour.

Like all batteries, if overused, the 'last' time can become less and less.

Otherwise, I'd have to know make and model to be of more assistance.

Samsung LE26R7 4BD, approx 4 years old, colour distortions


Check all of your cables on the back of the tv and your sources such as Cable,Sat box and DVD palyer to make sure they are fully inserted into the input and output connectors. Some times Component cables will work loose and you end up with a missing color. Temprature changes can affect intermittant connections. If that does work then you have a bad Main bd.

Picture has shadowing or ghost like images


This unit is getting distortion form the video circuits, most likely capacitors or resistors causing distortion to the input or output circuits. This problem could be caused by a bad video amplifier also ,which is distorting the signal. This problem needs to be checked with an oscilloscope to follow the signal path and find the source of the distortion. Usually this is best handled by a service center. If the unit is still under warranty call this number for Insignia customer help : 1-877-467-4289. If the unit is not under warranty, you should take it to a service center and have an estimate of the problems and repair costs. You can find parts for this television at the Best Buy parts website. Just google it and put in the number of your television and it will list all available parts and prices. You can also call this number for Best Buy parts : 1-888-237-8289. Hope this helps you with your problem.

TV Blinks on and off


Phil, from your description it sounds like your convergence IC`s are about to fail, the intermittent off/on cycle is because as they heat up there drawing too much current, the bowed collapse tells me it`s the vertical convergence IC that`s the culprit. You need to get a tech out asap to fix this or they could short and take out the power supply as well and that`s just mooore money to fix it, hope this answers your question, BMW Rider
