Question about Sony KV-27FS13 27" TV

Problem with sony tv

I have a problem where the right hand side of the picture bends in, the gap at its widest is approx 3inches, after a while the set switches itself onto standby mode. If you switch it off and back on again it will work for a short
while before doing the same again. As the set warms up so the shorter time the set stays on.
Please if you can tell me if this is a serious problem or something simple

Re: problem with sony tv

Define serious and simple.. Just teasing... John what you have is called a pincushion problem. In that particular model I'd check the following:
C530 .0022uf
R530 15k
R532 4.7k
and Q503
If you're not too technically inclined try this. Remove the main board, called the "A" board. Take pictures if you have too to refer to later when you re-install the board. So you know where all the wires go. Then carefully box it up and send it in to tri state module.. For approximately $129.00 plus your shipping costs getting it to them they will rebuild the board and ship it back with a one-year warranty. Re-install the baord and problem solved.
On the other hand, knowing that Tri State will rebuild it for that cost call a few shops and ask what they charge for repairing the pincushion problem, can't hurt.
Tri State's web is:

The problem I am having is that my 32' Sony Wega kv32fs12 Trinitron television will work almost perfectly. Image color is beautiful. tuners seem to be working like a charm, but the screen has a slight...

Picture alignments made in servive menu.

pwr off + display + 5 + (+vol) + pwr on
You must do all within 1 second.
1&4 move thru settings, 6&3 chg value,
muting & enter saves chgs.

Your code access could differ.

In the menu note down all existing settings.
Make small adjustments and watch what happens if not in right direction reset that particular option to original value before you changed. In those menus you can bend, shift hor. and vert., etc.
But be warned only slight adjustments and write down start values before experimenting. Or you can get in to serious trouble.

Good secret service menues keep an access counter for manufacturer/dealer to see how many times it was used.

Sony Trinitron - Picture Disappears

Hi, IK circuit is engaging which basically means the picture tube is getting tired, the only "fix" is temporary (may get another year out of it). You have to increase the "screen control clockwise".
Remove back of set, follow large black or red wire attatched to picture tube down to the flyback transformer, mounted on flyback are two black controls, one is focus (leave it alone) the other is "screen", adjust it clockwise approx. 1/4 inch, remember that this is a high voltage circuit so use one hand in the set the other hand out of the set at all times,any questions ? e-mail me back, good luck, BMW Rider
