Question about Sony KV-32S45 32" TV

1 Answer

Blinking screen then...

So I looked around on the web here and saw a solution to a problem similar to mine. This is where the screen blinks on and off and can be corrected by turning up the screen screw just until the pic came on. And that was great. Bam, the picture came back on! I put the back on it, then put it back in the stand. I'd say 15-20 minutes later I looked and it had blanked out again. I turned it off took it out, and took the back off again. Iturned on the tv, waited for it to warm up. It popped on and I adjusted the screw all the way right making strange lines and curves. Iturned it back to where the picture was normal. I left it open this time. The picture would still black out,and in order to get it back you had to turn it off and on again. Now it works a little better by bringing the picture back on itself. But, what it has now is the color becomes brilliant and then back to not so. Then it will blank out and come back on by itself. Please help my family can not afford another TV anytime in the near future.

The 2 blinks usually mea an over current problem. Perhaps the most common cause of this is a shortde Horizontal Output Transistor (HOT). If you can solder, you should be able to repair this yourself. Realize that there are potentially dangerous high voltages present inside the set even when unplugged. Look for a 3-legged ransistor attached to a heatsink close to the flyback (part with large red wire coming out the top). The part will be marked C5438 or something similar. Post that marking here nad I'll confirm the entire part number.

Keep us posted.

Possible problem and cost to fix of 5 blink error code on Sony Trinitron kv36fs200

The 5 blinks usually means a loss of video which can be caused by the failure of a number of transistors or an IC. It is unlikely that the trip home caused this. I assume from your problem description that turning up the screen control had no effect. Is that correct? I'll look this model up and try to get more specifics for you.

Blinking Standby Light

KV32hs500 tv won't turn on. Standby light blinks 7 times, stops and then 7 more times, etc.. The tv will usually come on after about 2 hours or so of being off. Plays fine when on but once it gets turned off the problem happens again. Any suggestions? T.V. is 5 years old.

Picture is going fuzzy and blinking red light...

This is the classic symptom of a CRT (picture tube)that is starting do get weak. The picture takes longer and longer to come on, it appears greenish and blurry, and it blinks on and off in different scenes, and when it is off the timer LED blinks 5 times. Sony has a circuit called "IK Blanking" which monitors and adjusts the colors in the picture tube, and shuts the picture off when the tube is getting too weak. The good news is that the Sony tubes always respond beautifully to a CRT rejuvination (recharge), and the picture returns to perfect. Since the set is 36 inches and VERY heavy, it should be serviced in-house and an appropriate charge for a service call for your set should be around $150.

No picture or sound. LED blinks 5 times

Hi, I have a similar problem with mine. but mine doesn't cut out. I tried keeping my finger on the reset button, on the remote control, and shut the TV off. When I put it back on, it's not flashing anymore. So far, it's about 4 hours and it's not flashing yet. Hopefully it will not. It's worth a try. Hope this helps.
