Question about Sony KV-36FS16 36" TV

1 Answer

No picture but sound works.....

I went to turn on my TV last night (Trinitron KV-36FS12) and there was no picture, just a black screen, though there was sound.  All the display and menu functions worked on the TV and I was able to pull up everything from DirecTV on the screen (channel guide, DVR list, etc..) but no picture.  I went to Video 1 to see if my DVD player worked and that was fine...picture, sound, everything.  Also Video 3 I have PS2 and there was a screen and sound and everything worked fine on that as well.  It's just when it's on TV mode I'm not getting any picture.  I unplugged it last night and plugged in back in this morning, however to no avail.  The TV is almost 8 years old.  Any thoughts or suggestions for me?  My email is if anybody reading this has any ideas for me.  Thanks.

Green screen and distorted picture sound is good but no picture

It must be connected with the color circuit of your tv, a board connected to back end of the tube. Could be dust, cob web or carbon deposit shorting a transistor. Popping noise if loud enough can be attributed to high voltage circuit fault and picture tube.

Have it service by a qualified person.

Please count the blinks and post that number. That is an internal diagnostic code that will indicate the problem circuit. From that I can give you probable repair parts and costs.

Sony FD Trinitron Wega model KV-34BR800

Sony Wega Triniton KV-32FS100 TV

For the last week my TV has been going to a black screen for 10 seconds or so then the picture returns. It has been continual. Last night it stopped going to black screen, but now the standby light flashes 5 consecutive times and the color went haywire. A lot of red and everything that is suppose to be black is green.

I did a soft and hard reset with no success. What's wrong and is it worth fixing? Bought new in November 2002.

Sounds like a problem with the vertical circuit. If yuo can solder and are comfortable with working inside the set, you may be able to repair this.

Keep us posted.
