Re: sony KV-20TS27

Hello,
I own a sony (1991) KV-20TS27 color TV and the problem it has is that once you turn it on the screen just displays snow instead of the usual channel selection. I tried switching the A/V option on the remote control, but it doesn't do anything.I do have a background in electronics.Do you have any idea or suggestions to correct the problem? Thanks.

    the sound is good. I tried using it as a video game monitor and it works fine. But something is wrong with the tv channel selection.

SOURCE: Sony Tuner KV-20TS27 loses signal

Hi,

Either that of your tuner block is acting up. Most Sonys of this production year uses a tuner block that requires 33VDC tuning supply. It has been known for this zener to fail or the capacitor parallel to it. At times, it could just be the tuner block itself.

Should you venture a DIY, it would be to your advantage to have access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.. It further requires familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: MY REMOTE WILL NOT CHANGE CHANNELS ONLY TURNS TV ON OR OFF

After much trial and error, we discovered a temporary fix. We taped a 3 x 5 index card to the front of the box directly to the right of the time/ channel number. The remote will change both the channels and the sound level with this "fix." Could there be some kind of emission coming from the box that interferes with the remote? Maybe Motorola could put a more opaque front on the box.

SOURCE: Re: 322 DTV Receiver - snowy screen on tv 2

Lets check the modulator set up at the main location TV 1. Press menu - 6-1-5 this will display how the TV 2 IS SET UP. It should say 22 air and if not use the arrow keys on the remote to change that info. Once you are done click done and go to the TV2 and see if it is working. It should be if you are set to view air or antenna channels on the TV2. If not there needs to be a few more things done to isolate the issue. Let me know and we will go from there. Thhanks for using Fix Ya.

We have a Sony Trinitron Color TV that seem to be in a sleep mode and we can't turn it on. Would you know what the problem is?


Hello
Press the "Sleep" button on your Sony's remote control hanset until the TV displays the time in minutes [ 15,30,45,60 or 90] that you want the the TV to remain "on" before shutting "Off" automatically. Cancel by pressing until "Sleep Off" appears. The logo also will go out from the screen.
You just do this after unpluging the TV from AC wall socker for about 10 minutes or so, and then plug it.

Sony KV-40XBR700


If the display seems normal when present, you may have what is called a 'cold solder joint,' possibly in the area of the horizontal power supply. This can be caused by normal heating and cooling of a particular spot on the circuit board that finally fractures the solder and making the joint thermally sensitive.
Most component failures, even when intermittant, would affect the display in some obvious way such as distortion, contrast, brightness, etc.

Sony tv snow for first 5 minutes on


Probably dry solder joints in the tuner section.

When the set warms up, the faulty joint/s make contact, then lose contact again when it cools down.

Snow screen


Your symptom is not a normal failure symptom. Can you be more specific? Is this on all inputs?

Hello paulaspec,

You have a problem with the three factors, and they are screen voltage, focus voltage, and control (focus 2) voltage. Basically these voltages have to be adjusted since the components in this section have aged some. These controls are usually located in the television on the IHVT (Integrated High Voltage Transformer) or as it is also called the flyback transformer. these controls must be adjusted together, along with the color controls. Here is how the adjustment is done (You will need a schematic diagram, a DC volt meter, and a color bar generator to do these measurments):

 

1) turn color and tint fully counter clockwise until you have a black and white picture.

 

2) connect the color bar generator to the TV (ch 3) and turn it on, you should see bars in various shades of gray

 

3) adjust as best as possible the color and tint controls to obtain the color bars on the screen Red Green Blue.

 

4) measure the voltages on the focus, screen and control grids of the CRT and match them to the schematic digram measurements.

 

5) adjust the focus screen and control grids to match the ones on the schematic diagram

 

6) once this is done then you adjust the color controls once again to obtain the red green and blue bars on the TV screen.

 

This should help if the CRT (picture tube) electron guns are still good and if the flyback transformer voltage supply is working.

 

However if you do not have a background in electronics please take the TV to a shop for repairs.

 

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Cant locate or adjust the the TV color


All the controls should be accesed thru the on screen menu,your remote should have a menu or display button and if you press it on the screen of the tv you should see a list of different options ,I am not familiar with the kind of menu that your set has but I know the color adjustment should be in the same screen that allows you to change the brightness,shapness,tint,color and contrast,the more you use the menu and become familiar with it the easiest it will be to use.Let us know if you need more information.
