Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS510 36" TV

1 Answer

KV-36HS510 It started intermittenly, every now and then it would not come on and finally it won't come on at all, it blinks seven times repeatedly. I took on out my meter and checked for DC at the main bridge diode, the voltage rises to about 350 VDC then shuts down, I'm not a TV repairman and much of what I see inside this monster looks like a repairman would just relpace the associated board but the power supplies and regulators look repairable. Could it be the STK-390-910 regulater or the flyback? Bill

    Same problem here. Light blinks 6 times though. Did you ever get this resolved?

    We have a KV-HS500 with the same problem. The local authorized repair shop says it needs a replacement D board but Sony no longer supports these sets so a new one is not available. They can send the board out for rebuild at a cost of around $500. I don't think it is worth it.

    This happened just two months after our 5-year extended warranty expired. We'll never buy another Sony product.

    My television work fine for a while. All of a sudden, it would not come out of Stand-by mode unless I made several attempted to turn on the TV power. Currently the television has been in standby for 4 to 5 weeks. The TV will not full turn on or off completely unless I remove all power. So I no longer have a working television. What is the point of having a Sony product if the product doesn't work correctly and repair parts are now longer available?

Hi,

From the symptoms you describe, it seems the high voltage flyback autotransformer has failed along with the horizontal amplifier (they are slaved to each other). The sound comes from the flyback unit. I guess it must be a high pitched squeal, actually...

Well, the only way to solve this is to get a technician take a look at the set, I'm afraid. Repairs could cost upto $100 or more, depending upon the number of components that need to be replaced,

Since the set is new, it may be worth getting fixed up. If you decide to do so, call around, as shops have different rates and different expertise. Many shops are hurting for work because so many of the smaller sets are never repaired anymore; they are just thrown out and replaced since the cost of a new set is sometimes as low as the repair expense.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

Sony Vega Service Codes


KV-32HS510 and KV-27HS420, seven times blink error code shows problem in Horizontal deflection circuit.

There are many possibilities like dry solder joints, weak capacitors, Horizontal transistor short or flyback transformer fried etc.

If you have little experience of TV repair and good solder skills and have necessary tools to test / check defective parts, then you can make it. you also need to have related service manual to see board location, schematics and part numbers.
