Sony Trinitron: Frozen Static Issue

I've got a 36" Sony Trinitron that's been consistantly flashing to static any time I try to use it. Sometimes just for a few seconds, sometimes for minutes at a time, but often enough that the picture is rarely visible. Occasionally, there will be two separate horizontal bars of static, but in any case it's always a frozen frame of static. I don't actually use this TV for the purpose of watching television (just console gaming through the front hookups) however this problem seems to occur regardless of where the picture is supposed to come from. The sound is unaffected.

You could be experiencing two problems. the first part of your description states the static with two horizontal bars, this problem is usually erratic and it is caused by a defective varactor tuner(this happens while watching a channel thru your channel selector) the second part that it also happens while using the front hookups could be taht the front input connectors have developed some loose solder connections and thus the video problems (very common problem)

"no signal" on display, just static


Check the input selections, and make sure that the selection is right. Try connected to external antenna, select the input to TV, and make an auto-tune function, and see whether all the stations can be received or not. If not, the tuner of the TV has to be suspected.

I did a reset on my Sony WEGA TV but now it's not connect with the cable box. Just says no signal. Screen is all snow and no sound other than static.


you need to reprogram channels. Itll only pick up 3 if you are still using coaxial cable from box, or change input to DVI/HDMI, aux, etc.

Sony wega trinitron won't turn on


  • Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505
  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
