Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36XBR800 36" TV

1 Answer

Sony KV 36 xbr800

No picture or sound. 6 standby flashes repeating or sometimes 7 repeating. What should I expect from a repairman. Is it worth fixing or just writing this one off. It seems that this problem is common and Sony has done nothing to recall or try to fix.

    I have the same problem. This is the second time. It was repaired 1 month ago. The took out a board and sent to a third party company to fix it.

    Now it is happening again. The first time it happened, it will turn on in the morning, then if turned off like mid-day, it won't turn back ON again until next day, displaying the 7 flashes. It then never turn back ON again.

    After, fixing it, it worked for 1 month and now again is working only if left ON all day. So it will eventually stop working.

    it was fixed under extended warranty but it expired already and the repair company is not taking the call to do anything, they ask to go trhough the warranty company for a new claim, but it expired already. The suppose to provide some warranty time for the repair but they are refusing to do so..

    If anybody runs through a solution for this, please share it...

I'm not sure about the chassis number of your tv set..
but I can give a solution for your proble....
It might be the problem at A,B,M board there's no +5V or over voltage +5V...check the IC504 at A board looks like a ic regulator 5V..check c530(470uF/25V),check c540(1000uF/16V)..

My KV-36HS500 won't turn on it sounds like it wants to,but no picture,and standby light flashes 7 times,pauses and flashes 7 times again

The 7 blinks indicate that the horizontal deflection has stopped. This can be because the horizontal output transistor has shorted (common) or other defecive parts. If you are familiar with working inside of sets where potentially dangerous high voltages exist and can solder, let me know and additional details and instructions will be provided.

Sony KV Trinitron WEGA 36" TV won't turn on

My 36 wega did the same thing last week it must be contagious. Blinks 7 times mostly but sometimes 6 if hit power switch again. The problem is the D-boards shorted Flyback high voltage transformer but the ones Sony is selling $130 do not hold up and seem to burn out in a few days, yes twice bitten. Finally they send me new D-board can't wait to see if this fixes it once and for all. The board costs around $200 but is worth it to get it running again.

I suspect you crt tube is going and is most likely not worth fixing

There are things you could do a tv service shop could rejuve your picture tube and adjust your screen voltage.

sometimes that does not work

I would start looking for another tv
