Question about Sony KV-32V16 TV

1 Answer

Initial Setup flashing on and off

The "Initial Setup" auto program screen keeps flashing on and off intermittantly, more and more frequently (no matter what you try to do to stop it), until the remote is disabled. Pushing buttons on TV itself only temporarily helps problem. Have had this tv for >10 years. it still works but getting blinken (power up - front panel 'blinks' b4 set comes on)  light for longer and longer periods... Suspect this old geezer is probably losing ability to provide some voltage requirement for display. Probably HV for tube. Since this maybe fixable any suggestions. It makes a good set for spare b'room/gaming tv... Thanx - any suggestions/experience helpful.. as this may be 'common' with older tube sets.

Initial Setup Screen


Have you ever cleaned the set front glass with windex or glass cleaner.Sometimes the fluid runs down before you can wipe and lands inside right on top of the push buttons that control ( CH,VOL, MENU, etc.) If this happens you can get this trouble. If you up to it take the cover off and look at the board just under the front edge of the crt. If you see green or grey residue you probably have to remove that corresponding TAC switch. You can just cut out and use the remote for that function.

Initial setup


This is commonly caused by the CRT going too weak, and the AKG circuits are switching off the bias to the CRT. This is part of the high voltage regulation protection.

Other causes, but are rare to cause this, are failures in the bias circuits, high voltage regulation (flyback assembly), and in the scan amplifiers.

With proper experience, reference to the service manual, and the proper set-up, it is possible to determine the causes of the failure, and service it. The cost of the parts will be rather expensive if you can still have access to them.

Initial setup


First give it a hard reset. To do this you must unplug the power cord for at least 4 hours; then try again.  This will reset the internal programming and restore it to factory defaults settings. Unplugging for a shorter period of time may not do the trick.

If the hard reset does not solve the problem it has a defective eeprom OR a bad voltage regulator that feeds the controller IC/eeprom set.  In which case you will need a tv tech to dignose the exact fault and determine the defective parts. (There are over 100 parts associated with these functions).

Hope this helps.

Initial Setup flashing on and off


Heh. I just gave my set the "Fonzie treatment" after I was convinced the initial setup notice was messing with me. The problem cleared right up. No joke.
