Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32FS100 32" TV

1 Answer

Picture broken and shrinking

Picture on TV is off centre vertically and is receding in size and out of focus with horizontal lines through it the further down the screen it gets (shaped like an upsidedown triangle). If you knock the side of the tv the full picture will appear, however the horizontal lines continue in the bottom third of the screen.

Re: Picture broken and shrinking

You need to change your vertical IC, along with some capacitors around the vertical IC. Capacitor with value 220UF, 10uf, 470uf and finally 1000uf. Doing this will fix the set. Total cost under $40

Screen picture shrinking . Two wide white horizontal lines

Check vertical output circuits. They control the up and down deflection and when not working you get straight line across front of tube.

Picture shrinks horizontally every few seconds.

You are changing parts in the wrong circuit. The problem is in the vertical circuit. Look for the vertical IC and resolder the pins first. It should be an LA7837 or something similar. Also, check the 100ufd and 47ufd caps in the same circuit.

Keep us posted.

Picture on RCA TV shrinks to a horizontal line

Sounds to me you have a cold solder joint ( loose solder connection ) on the printer circuit board around or on the vertical chip or on one of the vertical capacitors. You may also have a bad vertical chip or a bad vertical capacitor, but I doubt it since it did come and go. I'de get a soldering iron and some solder and touch up the connections. I will remind you that you need to always excersise saftey by making sure, before removing the back, unplug the TV from the wall, and use care not to come in contact with the large red wire going to the back of the picture tube as the picture tube can be turned off and still store lots of voltage ( up to 35,000 volts). Always stay safe and when soldering, use care not to run solder across places that will make a short.
Good Luck and I hope this helps

Horizontal lines on picture

Can't advise on entering setup but the lines may be due to the maladjustment of the brightness control on the flyback. There will normally be two adjusters, one for focus the other for brightness.

Picture and text extend beyond screen

Your tv needs to be put into service mode with the original Sony remote control and then set the vertical\horizontal size parameter to the correct values and then burn the new settings to memory
Google " sony tv service mode " and you should find the procedure. Good Luck! Write back if you have problems.

Since you can bang it to heal it some, try checking for cold solder joints. Caps and IC's next. Careful TV's store up to 3000 K volts unplugged. Enuff to kill.
