Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 27" TV

1 Answer

Sony 27" picture quality

The top 2 inches of the picture on my 27" Trinatron appears as if it has been folded back 90 degrees into the plane of the TV screen, then it curves back to verticle. Is this a problem that is worth trying to fix.

Re: Sony 27" picture quality

You probably have a leaky or open electrolytic capacitor in the vertical circuit. This will require troubleshooting by a repair specialist, unless you can obtain a diagram and do a little spy work with an oscilloscope

My 27 inch emerson flat tube tv only shows the picture in a thin strip how do i fix it back to normal

You will need to replace the Horizontal IC around $80 bucks for the parts and labor. What happen here is when the Horzontal ic gives out the screen basically folds to the middle. Do not shoot the messanger here but have the TV looked at by a professional locally.

I hope this was Very Helpful to you today please leave your feedback and ratings.

Visual transparent lines at top of picture

You have a vertical output circuit problem. This was common for Philips' sets. Have a repair shop check it out. Should not be too expensive to repair.

There are probably two capacitors that are bad in the vertical circuit. Not too hard to replace if you have any experience at all. Find the vertical output IC ( usually IC451 or similar ) and simply change the closest electrolytic capacitors. A professional can do this easily. Could cost up to $150.

Elongated picture

There is a bad capacitor in the vertical circuit. If you feel comfortable working inside a set and can solder, update this and I'll try to get the specifics for you.

Sony tv problem

You have a loose solder connection or two. If I knew the model number of the set, I could be more specific. I would expect the repair would run about a hundred dollars, so make sure the picture quality is great before going to the expense.
