Question about Sony KP-53HS10 TV

1 Answer

Hi, I had a problem with my Sony CRT television.

Hi, I had a problem with my Sony CRT television. When I switched it on, the picture got brighter and brighter until it switched itself off and flashed up the error code for over current protect. Also, when the picture was working, there were faint purple lines across the screen (barely visible). So, I took it to be repaired and they told me that the flyback had failed and needed replacing. I've now had the repair done and after a day, it's doing exactly the same thing again. Obviously I'm going to take it back to the repair shop but does anyone have an idea of what the problem is? Thanks

The faint background lines are vertical flyback lines. Start your diagnosis by turning the brightness and contrast controls to minimum and view the screen in a darkened room. If you can now see a raster with horizontal lines visible then it is likely that the tubes A1 screen voltage is excessive. The screen voltage is usually within the range of 400v to 600v. Adjustment for this is often part of the flyback transformer. Check all high value resistors
in the screen and focus circuitry. Some of these reistors may be
built into the flyback transformer. As the picture gets brighter the beam current increases, this will eventually cause the X ray protection circuits to trigger shuting off the set. A fault in the video drive circuits to the cathodes of the tube will cause similar symptoms but usualy results in a predominance of one colour, ie
bright red, blue or green raster with flyback lines.

NO -the tube will be fine . The TV is in 'protect mode' . THis means that it has shutdown because of an internal fault condition. THis TV needs a technician's love..

SOURCE: GREEN AND PURPLE LINES ACROSS THE SCREEN

This is a symptom of the circuit failing.
it will soon be much worse.
You need a tech.
you can verify it is the tv circuit.
remove cable or input another signal such as dvd
bring up the TV' menu. does it have the lines.

Some televisions have a Power Saving Mode; the picture will become brighter if the Powers Saving Mode is turned off.
Some televisions have a Light Sensor; the picture will become brighter or lower depending on room lighting conditions. Turning off the Automatic Brightness Control may increase picture brightness.

MY SONY KP41T35 PIC FLASHES ON OFF ON OFF AND GREEN PROJECTOR IS ON BUT NOT SENDING PIC JUST GREEN LIGHT


Sony PTVs do get bad CRTs, to confirm you can pull the front cover and tap on the middle CRT (green) neck with a plastic handle if the green screen flashes back to normal or brighter and causes the TV to shutdown then the CRT is bad. sometimes you can make it stay working for awhile, but eventually the CRT will need replacing. if this doesn't help you can turn the bottom middle control counter clockwise to lower the green .
hope this helps

Won't turn on - comes on and goes right back off


Is the picture good or is it dull and dark?
A dull aka weak picture tube will cause low beam current and blank the screen. Last set I had do this I turned up the screen control to make it brighter. Use caution and don't turn it up too high were you see vertical retrace lines in the picture.
