Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KD-36FS130 TV losing picture and audio.

I have a sony FD Trinitron WEGA KD-36FS130. Today, the TV started randomly losing picture and sound. After a short rest the TV can be turned back on and is operational for a short time (5-30 minutes) and then the same problem occurs and the process of trying to get it back on again repeats. The standby light blinks 6 times when I lose picture and sound. I can still power off the TV because the standby light will go off when the power button is pressed and I'm assuming that the TV is really off at this point and not pretending to be off like it recently has started doing. I've probably only let the TV rest, while off completely, for 5-20 minutes before turning it back on again since the problem started occurring a few hours ago. So what's the problem and is it worth fixing?

    I tried to identify the TV using pictures instead of the model number on the back...I know...Genius. The TV is actually a KV-36XBR400

The power supply board is failing. There are twi integrated circuits in the horizontal drive circuitry that have to be replaced. The original integrated circuits are the same type and you will see written on each..."MCZ3001D" and need to be replaced with Sony # 670581001 or the "D" board with those parts on it needs to be replaced. The cost of the entire board is high-about $375.

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with
troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're still in warranty, the TV will be repaired at no charge to you. The warranty would likely be at least one year from the date of purchase from the manufacturer. If you purchased an extended service plan they will repair the TV at no charge as well.

If the TV is no longer in warranty, it will likely cost a minimum of $150 parts and labor. This is assuming that you only need one
circuit board or small part. If the problem is more than one of the circuit boards, the price of repair could go much higher.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

I'm getting the same thing - I've had my Wega for about 10 years now...I wouldn't expect this thing to be crapping out already given how much I paid for it back in the day.

Picture flashes on and off,after it takes awhile to start


The vacuum within your picture tube is evacuating. This is technically known as a "High GR" (Gas Ratio) condition. The CRT picture tube would need to be replaced to repair the TV. This would not be very economical. You should consider replacing the TV as soon as finances permit. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.
