Question about Sony KV-32FS12 32" TV

1 Answer

A 4 year old, a squirt gun, and my Sony TV!

So, it turns out that my Sony KV-32FS12 WEGA TV doesn't like being repeatedly squirted with water from my 4 year old's squirt gun. Apparently (based on the technical report from my wife), the TV started "freaking out", which with further interrogation, I determined to mean the Video Source kept cycling through all the sources. Also, it would not power off. After letting the TV dry for over a day, I tried it again with similar results. It will run okay for a little while, but then the video sources keep cycling. Also, during this "freaking out" phase, it will not accept input from a remote control. Being the rocket scientist that I am (no, really, I am!), I cracked the TV open and inspected the circuit boards for damage. I noticed water residue on the bottom of the main (biggest) CCA, on the leads for an integrated circuit with the part number 91A116HDF (1-431-851-11). There was also a little scorching around the edge of the component on the top side. So... my question is, would this apparently damaged component likely result in the behavior that I'm seeing. And, if so, where can I get another one of these integrated circuits? Thanks!!

Stop!Clean area around all tactil switches and replace any that are defective.One or more of your function select switches up front is shorted---sending a continuous signal to the micro IC.Good,used switches are fine,but must have same physical parameters as originals.

We have an 11 year old sony trinitron fv-32fs12 that is now getting a blue screen. I saw where there is a way to fix this using the remote control. Do you know how?


Blue screen means it's not getting a signal, so check your input setting. If it's set to TV and you're connected to a cable/satellite box then you probably have to put the set on channel 3 or 4. If you're set to AV1,2,3 etc make sure you have a good signal going to the input selected. I doubt that there's a problem with your TV.

Sony Wega Kv-36XBR250 screen blinking


I have seen this flashing before, this could be an indication that the picture tube is weak, what happens is that if the white balance is off there is a circuit called akb it monitors the kathode of each gun and if they are not in balance it will attempt to balance it out. if it can't the picture will begin to flash, sometimes in some models the power light will blink 5 times. On some models the power light will only flash if the tv gives up trying to compinsate for white balance and shuts off compeletely. If you see the tv shutting off with 5 blinks then you know for sure it is time for a new set.

Try the 60 seconds unplugging of wall plug in your outlet. Or check your line if this have surge protector. Temporary plug your unit to wall outlet directly. Just check if it still within voltage operating range.

Apparently, channels have to be autoprogrammed first before those buttons will work.

Our TV is 4 years old but we never used the channel buttons bc it was always hooked up to DirecTv thru video input. SO when we disconnected the TV to sell, we thought it was a problem.

That generally means that the CRT is weak and is putting out low emmisions. This is confirmed by the fact that the color quality is not that great when you can see a picture IE: not enough red, green or blue. This is very common when these CRT's age.

2 year old turned tv on/off several times - TV doesn't turn on


The main power supply is in the protect mode. Usually this is caused by the high voltage section, scan amplifiers, and or the main power supply failing. Many times, when there are failures in the scan amplifier output sections, the main power supply can also be damaged.

On rare occastions, the CRT electron-gun can have a short, and cause this type of failure condition.

An experienced TV tech should be able to service this for you.
