Sony trinitron 27" tv not working

My TV will not show any picture whatsoever anymore. While watching the set, the top and bottom converged on the middle of the screen and then every sign of life disappeared. I have done a hard reset, banged on the top and sides, but nothing appears to work, set will not even turn on. There is a blinking trouble indicator on the front of the set that is blinking. I looked up the code and it says that the "vertical deflection has stopped." I think we bought the set in 1997-1998. Is this something that can be repaired cheaply? Is it worth fixing, or should we just buy a new tv? The model number is KV-27S45. I dont know what else to do except take it to be repaired somewhere. Please help!

Re: Sony trinitron 27" tv not working

Hi. If the picture was good before set went wrong then I would say yes get it fixed. Frame fault is pretty straight forward for tv shop to repair. New sets regardless of make will not last 10 years before they go wrong you will be lucky if a new set lasts 3 years before going wrong. At the moment in the repair shop I work in we are scrapping off LCD & PLASMA that are under 3 years old they are very expensive to repair.

The tv is at least 17 years old.The blinking red light blinks 5 times ,then the tv picture goes off . The voice is still on

Five blinks is the error code for an AKB (auto kine bias) error. What this means is that the set isn't able to balance the three color guns (red, green and blue) of the picture tube properly, and it's blanking out the screen.

To get the proper colors, the signals for the three colors need to be balanced, and Sony sets have circuitry to do this automatically. Other brands don't, and when they go out of balance you see a picture that starts to show tinting or colors that are off. As the picture tube ages, it gets harder to adjust the balance until finally the AKB circuit can't anymore, and poof, the picture goes away. With a 17-year-old tube, it's not surprising.

There isn't anything that can be done to fix the picture tube, it would need to be replaced. But the cost of the tube and the work required to get it set up after installation makes it completely uneconomical to repair this TV. A new picture tube is nearly $200. Then special tools are required to set the tube up (a process called convergence), so you'd need to find someone to put it in, and possibly pay to have the old one disposed of. A new 32-inch LCD set is around $350 now. Treat yourself to a new one.

Picture is all different flashing colors

Maybe you put magnet near to your TV or something that can produce magnetism.... if not the deguassing system is not functioning anymore. .. bring your unit to near service in your place.

Sony Trinitron - Picture Disappears

Hi, IK circuit is engaging which basically means the picture tube is getting tired, the only "fix" is temporary (may get another year out of it). You have to increase the "screen control clockwise".
Remove back of set, follow large black or red wire attatched to picture tube down to the flyback transformer, mounted on flyback are two black controls, one is focus (leave it alone) the other is "screen", adjust it clockwise approx. 1/4 inch, remember that this is a high voltage circuit so use one hand in the set the other hand out of the set at all times,any questions ? e-mail me back, good luck, BMW Rider

Cannot see TV through digital box on my sony trinitron

If there is no audio as well then this suggest that the digital box is at fault. The fact that you can watch DVD's proves this fact. Unplug the digital box for 2 minutes and then re-try. Good luck.
