Question about Sony KP-43T70 43" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Sound stays on & picture goes to blank screen

My almost 7 year old tv was fine.  I was watching the other night and the sound stayed on, but the picture went to a blank screen.  When changing the channel, the picture was on for other channel.  When going back to the original channel, the picture would be on for about 30 seconds then go back to blank screen.

It started to go to blank screen again tonight. So it wasn't just a one time problem.

Re: Sound stays on & picture goes to blank screen

I do not see any reference on this problem and I even checked with Sony. If you are on a cable box, I suspect that is the problem.

My screen went blank but the sound works fine. We were watching TV when the screen went out. The sound stayed on. We still get sound but no picture. Is this worth fixing? If so what is the best way to go...

all in one day my screen started by showing a u look at top and bottom. all three colors kind of separated from each other and therefore made shadows on all the writing and double and triple vision on people and images. then it drawed in from sides and showed some black. then it popped in the back and no picture. the sound then came back on with no picture. so i shut it off and unplugged it. what do i have to get to fix this? thank you, Robert Hopkins

Our Hitachi tv turns on okay but the picture on comes in for 2-3 seconds and then the screen goes black. Last night the tv work just fine but this problem started today as I turned the tv on to watch...

I don't know what model you have,but... I have a 50v715 and it was doing the same thing and it turned out to be the lamp. So if you have not replaced the lamp in a while then it could just be it time. Hope this is helpful.

TV screen goes blank but power stays on

Sounds like the CRTs are going into protective blanking due to the vertical output ic needing to be resolderd. Try resoldering the vertical IC that may possibly fix the issue.

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.

After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.

KDF-E55A20 is about 3 years old.

2 problems- 1-gasket is hanging loose on top of protection screen. 2- TV goes blank and I lose the picture and sound only on some channels at 9:00pm every night

unscrew the screws along the sides and top at back. gently lower screen forward and look inside--you should see the gasket--reattach it or remove it...I just removed it after staring at it for a year or more
