Re: turning on

We moved in a uhaul across the US. Moving from one place to another has got nothing to do with tv operation. if it takes more time for light to come then it is a problem in brightness ckt or tube getting weak if tv is old tv. if on the whole more time means cap in power supply might be a problem good luck.

I just plugged it in and it turns on/off by itself.the craig logo pops up for a second then goes away and this repetes

Mine does the same. It's not turning off though, it's just blacked out. The only way to fix this is by leaving it on whilst blacked out and about 10-20 minutes later if you turn it on and back on the picture should show up. Mine's been doing it for some time so it takes longer. :(

My sony wega kv-36 tries to power on. the stand by light blinks 6 times every time I try to turn it on. After turning on and off like 50 times, I seem to get lucky and it actually powers on and woks...

The Power/High Voltage board is the main cause of this. Most of these boards must be sent to Sony to be refurbished because Sony no longer manufactures the board.
I hope this helps,

There are sets of lines going across the top of the screen.

probably its finely out of tune, i would get onto settings then manually tune it myself. or if this fails.. call your service provider. its nothing that you have done wrong. its them. also. at the back of your television. make sure ALL essential leads are fully plugged in..

My tv just stopped turning on. it seems like a braker cause if i unplug it then plug it back in it trys to start up

This is one of the typical signs of a tired power supply; this is probably not and expensive repair since this behavior is often caused by a cheap part (capacitor).
If you are feeling adventurous, you can probably find (at least) the area where the failing part is located.
You would need a can of 'freeze spray' from an electronic supply store and a hair dryer. When capacitors have lost value or gained too many losses, these can be influenced by raising or lowering their temperature.
NOTE: Once you remove the back panel and turn of the power, there will be dangerous voltages exposed so keep fingers clear of any parts.
Look for an area of larger capacitors (cylindrical parts mounted 90 degrees to the board) and a medium large transformer. Not the largest black object, this will be the flyback transformer that produces the high voltage for the tube and the signal that moves the trace back and forth across the screen.
With the power turned on, try shooting the smaller capacitors near that medium-sized transformer. Try spraying them one at a time and waiting 10-15 seconds for the part to 'soak' up the cold; the big ones take longer of course.
If this turns up no part you can influence, then try with the hair dryer, again allowing time for reaction and try to aim at only a few parts at a time. Obviously, this is not going to be as directed as was the freeze spray.
If you locate a general area you can influence by alternate cycles of cold and heat, you are pretty close to the failing part.
If you want to proceed comment back and I will guide you further-

Sony Trinitron color TV model no. kv-27v22

dear, you can check that transformers out put before connecting to a tv. also when its connected to a tv.
get a avo meter and connect in series with a tv.
observe the current on the intial switch on and when the picture goes. if you notice that current on intial switching is high and then it starts going lower and lower, then change the transformer.
but if the current starts going up from the intial current then check the power supply components of the tv.
thanks for asking fixya.
