Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-34XBR800 34" TV

2 Answers

Dropped my TV :( Now all I see is a RAINBOW of colors...

I dropped my Sony Triniton KV-34 XBR 800 on the floor - face down, and now have a really odd waive of rainbow colors that look to waive across my screen. Any suggestions or ideas on how to fix this?

    Hello,

    I am very sorry to inform you that there is nothing you can do to repair this set that may be cost effective. When the set was dropped the shadow mask inside of the tube has shifted and that is causing the colors to be off on the screen. The shadow mask lines up the red, green, and blue guns in the tube and only allows those colors to light up from the corresponding gun.

    The only way to repair the set would be with a new picture tube. The replacement of the tube can sometimes cost more than the set initially cost to purchase.

    I hope this helps to some extent.

    You cannot fix this economically. A new TV is the only solution, since replacement CRTs cost more than the rest of the set plus fitting and alignment. Once the internal shadow mask shifts position, the tube is stuffed. Magnets may minimize the purity error, but won't solve it long-term.

Hello, my TV was dropped (rolled forward) and experienced the same problem. The shadow mask has shifted. In general this shift should be localized to section of the screen (usually the top). I managed to fix the problem using an array of magnets. It took a few days to arrange the magnets to compensate for the shifted mask. I used 10 strong small circular magnets. The picture has normal color but has some nonlinear streching (barely noticable) near the top of the screen.
Hope that helps if you need more advise try me at sunny3141@yahoo.com.

My screen turned into all colors after i dropped the tv


HELLO

If the colours on the screen are like a "rainbow" then I'm afraid your tube is damaged - probable cause is the shadow mask in the tube itself has slipped. Dropping a CRT TV set is not good and all sorts of things can happen to the tube.

Carrying monster TV's like this you should always have TWO people carrying it - put it down to experience - you have learned the hard way!

Looks like you'll be buying a new TV!

I have a rainbow of color about the screen. The TV fell out of the stand and now the color pattern is messed up. It fell face down.


sounds like a degaussing (magnetizing) problem.could be that the posistor inside the TV set got loose when the tv fell down. If you have experience soldering electronic components, you should be able to fix it by re-soldering. Otherwise, call a tv tech to do it.

if this is a distorted kind of rainbow aura affecting the colour, you need to de-gauss the screen - a good tv repair man will have the mains powered magnet to fix this - and shouldn't charge alot.

Sony Trinitron Color Rainbow


Usually when a tv is dropped the phospher screen inside the picture tube will detatch making the rainbow color This cannot be fixed as it requires changing the picture tube. Only other thing is demagnatize it with a demagnitizing coil (used by tv techs) but not likely to fix it since it was dropped. You have a bad picture tube.

Rainbow on the tv


The only time I have seen that symptom is when the shadow mask of the picture tube gets loose,What that means is you might be looking at a bad crt,color splashes could be a purity problem but rainbow lines are not.Sometimes that happens by itself or by being drop.Good luck
