Re: My Sony tv CRT

If it's between 5-10 secs, that's normal. You will turn the tv on and hear a loud (buzz/hum) that is the picture tube firing up, once it's fired up, it has a few more seconds until your picture comes up fully. That is about 5-10 secs from pushing the power button.

If it's taking longer than that, your picture tube may be going out.

I had a 36XBR250 and it took about 10 secs to fire up and show a picture, and it was 5 1/2 years old.

What is the problem to my Sony TV model KVXS29M65 Chassis BG-3S\51 that had a red tinted screen.Human skin tone looks reddish orange.Pse help.tq

I was not able to find any service information for that particular model. But it could be several things, first it may be that the picture tube has a short on the RED Cathode. If this is the case, toss it, if you could find a new picture tube it would likely cost more for the part than a new TV. Second it may be that the CRT Driver IC for the RED Cathode has shorted. This will be found on the CRT circuit board. There should be three of them, One for each gun, RED, GREEN and BLUE. Unfortunately like I said, I couldn't find the service manual for this model, so I can't give you a location number. They should be fairly inexpensive, so you could replace all three. You can find the part number printed on the face of the IC. Third it may be in the Chroma Circuit, which is also an IC, but again I cannot give you a location number. If your adept at repairing TV's and want to tackle this your self, invest in a service manual, or call one of your local repair shops. Maybe they can / will help with part numbers / location numbers etc.

Have an old sony HDTV proj tv, and the picture went out last night. I heard sort of a "pop" then no picture

Pop sound shows that some thing went wrong inside TV and most probably any part got busted.
Let me know model number of your Sony TV and does its standby red light blinking? if yes, how many times it blinks between 3 seconds interval.
