Question about Sony KV-13TR28 13" TV

1 Answer

TV problem I have a Sony 13" KV-13TR28. I know it's about 15 years old but has the best picture of anything today. The picture will intermittently go snowy after an hour or so. It may come back in 30 seconds or 30 minutes. It doesn?t matter if it?s attached to an antenna or direct tv. I took the top off and couldn?t see anything obvious i.e. fuses blown, burned components, or any electrical smell. Any help will be appreciated. Jim Adams The picutre will intermittenly go

Hi...I'm thinking about buying a 2 year old Sony KV32Fs-120, is this a good tv and are there maintenance costs involved in having a tv like this? Thanks, Nancy.

The Sony TV'S are one of the best sets you can by on the market, the Trinitron picture is world famous when it comes to picture and quality. Since it is two years old makes it a good buy, maintenance costs are low compared to most televisions.

Your vertical IC will need resoldered. And check near this IC for bad capacitors. And any and all grounds where there are heat sinks attached to other transistors and ICs. This should restore your TV. Find a hobbiest or TV tech to pull the board out for repair!

Super high pitch whistle from tv, only powering it off helps.

Shut it off and unplug. You have a serious HIGH VOLTAGE problem that could cause a fire. Professional repair needed.

After 13 years, the most likely cause is a tired picture tube. There are adjustments that can be made to address this, but they would be short lived. Rather than spend money on this set, put it toward a replacement. After 13 years, the set owes you nothing.

Reprogramming TV Stations

Don't you just hate that when the co-executors are so careless. :) (just kidding :)
You will need a remote but that's easy... Go here: and get a miracle remote for a sony and they are as if you purchased the original remote. We have serveral here in the shop for various brands and they access all the functions of the original for a fraction of the cost...
Then just go into the menu and do an auto-program from setup.
Have a great day!

Sony kv27s15 just went dead, how to fix it?

We just experienced the same thing. My daughter was watching TV and it went dead. We could not get it to turn back on. I'm guessing that this model Sony TV had a 13 year life expectancy. I offered it to a local technician who refurbs and sells TVs, and he wasn't interested. He said he doesn't mess with anything over 10 years old because it's too hard to sell. We just went ahead and bought a new LCD HDTV. It's a shame though. If someone were able to fix the old TV, I'm sure a nursing home or non-profit facility could use it. Our only other option is to pay $15 to have it recycled.

NO -the tube will be fine . The TV is in 'protect mode' . THis means that it has shutdown because of an internal fault condition. THis TV needs a technician's love..
