Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36FS120 36" TV
While watching TV, the screen blacks out and thens turns off. This is not an everyday problem, but when it starts, it continues to do this more frequently- every few minutes or so. We turn it off and let it rest and then does not do this for a day or so.
From the symptoms you describe, it seems the high voltage flyback autotransformer has failed along with the horizontal amplifier (they are slaved to each other).
Well, the only way to solve this is to get a technician take a look at the set, I'm afraid. Repairs could cost upto $100 or more, depending upon the number of components that need to be replaced,
Since the set is new, it may be worth getting fixed up. If you decide to do so, call around, as shops have different rates and different expertise. Many shops are hurting for work because so many of the smaller sets are never repaired anymore; they are just thrown out and replaced since the cost of a new set is sometimes as low as the repair expense.
Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
