Picture keeps going off anf on, but still have sound

The model number I have on the back of the TV is sony KV-32TW77. It is an1994 TV in a wooden enclosed cabinet with a glass door below for the DVD and VCR. The picture keeps going black, I still have sound and if I watch a DVD the picture stays fine? I was told the receiver was going bad is it an easy fix for the average homeowner?

Thanks, Rick

Re: Picture keeps going off anf on, but still have sound

Unfortunately that's an indication of the crt going bad in a Sony.
You can turn the G2 voltage down on the flyback or have a tech rejuvenate the picture tube but either of these are only a temporary fix..
The flyback is the rather large transformer with a red (anode) wire coming from it and attaching to the crt. (looks like a suction cup).
There are two adjustments on the back of the FBT, one is screen (or G2) the other is focus. With the unit on turn the G2 counter clockwise just a little and the picture will get slightly less bright. That should stop the picture from blinking out - or doing so as often. But again, it's only temporary!
Good thing Santa's almost here... :)

Blinking of standby light in Sony TVs are fault indications. You just count the exact number of blinks occurs at a time after switch it ON. Switch it ON and OFF by its front panel power switch, and not by the remote control handset. Do this for at least four times, count the number of blinks, confirm and inform me. I can then locate the fault section of your Tv, seometimes even to the exact point of fault too. OK

You definitely have bad solder joint.If you have a soldering iron you may be able to fix it.The way your talking it sound like in the deflection area.remove the back cover and start the set then using something non conductive i.e a wooden salad spoon , knock lighly around the circuit that way you may be able to pinpoint the area where the trouble is. you`ll have to pull out the chassis to resolder the joints.look for rings around solder spot. good luck p.s; remove power before soldering

Sony MODEL KV-2585 TV

You have your information incorrect, Q is not the designation for diodes, Q657 would be a transistor. First give us the correct number for the diode and how do you know it is shorted?

Sony tv picture keeps flashing

You likely have bad solder connections around the tuner area. This model has a history of problems in that area or the tuner itself.

Channnel keeps flicking like your changing channels with remote

when you say flickering??? are you saying the screen goes black and comes back on?? does the sound go out at the same time and comes bag on with the pic ? Is the sound there when this happens but is distorted. Is the pic blacked out or is it greying out with lines and twisting?? Need more info please as if its blacking out and the sound goes with it it may be going into shutdown. If the pic is getting kinda greyish with it twisting and the sound is there and ditorted then the tuner could be bad
