Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36FS120 36" TV

1 Answer

Color in picture only good in 4 corners

The picture tube on my T.V. has been getting 'waves' of color flashing across it periodically for the last few months. Over the last couple of days we have noticed that there seems to be a large cross pattern of bad color for the bulk of the T.V. screen, and the color only seems good for about 3" rectangular sections on all of the corners. This phenomenon is perfectly symetrical. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I think it is a magenatic effect called degaussing problem. please remove anything very near to it which has got magnet like speaker headphone etc. call tech to gegauss it. it is hardly 5 minutes job. please do not change the angle while watching tv. your tv seems to be 100% ok. good luck.

Sony Trinitron model # KV-27HFR- the picture is fading, is there a way i can fix that?


From your descrition the problem is the picture tube, over a period of time the guns build up crud reducing the emission on the front screen which in turn causes fading and progressively gets worse until viewing becomes impossible. One possible solution is to have the picture tube rejuvinated by a tv tech to buy more time out of the set, but the improvement may last a few days to several months or more.

I would check the main power supply for a bad filter cap. That could cause the wavy lines. The different colors are probably a problem with the convergence circuit. Try resoldering the convergence ICs first. If that does not resolve it replace the ICs. Also check for low valued resistors in that same circuit or pico fuses.

Red picture


Assuming this is a TV with a picture tube and not plasma or LCD; I'm afraid that your picture tube is dying on you one electron gun at a time. From what you said your green electron gun is almost totally dead and the two remaining blue & green guns aren't far behind. Eventually you'll have no picture at all and I would estimate that to be about 6 more months but whatever the time eventually it will go totally black. These blackout periods will get longer and longer. The only way to fix your problem is a new picture tube but my will probably find it less expensive to just get a brand new TV set.

Classic bad picture tube! End of natural life for that make/Model.

The  current sensing circuit is turning the video on/off.

The orangey look also indicates CRT no good.......T.

Picture Flashes off and on


probably the tv has a loose solder in the board. this is normal especially when tv is aging. most of the components inside are emitting heat resulting to loose the solder. try to inspect and resolder if possible. but if you dont have the proper tools and equipment and you're not inclined with this kind of job, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!
