    When turning on my 32" Sony TV the picture goes on and off for about 2 mintues before working properly. I purchased set about 8-10 years ago.

    Picture flashes on and off constantly when watching cable. However, this does not happen when watching a DVD. There is no problem with the cable. it has been checked by Comcast.

    I have the same problem. Picture cuts out completely then back on. When I first turn it on, it does this constantly for about 15-20 mins, then about once every 30 mins or so. The sound is fine, but the picture just flashes on and off.



    The color is also starting to shift a lot and cannot be fixed by adjusting COLOR-BRIGHTNESS-PICTURE in the video control menu system. Nothing seems to correct this. I've even unplugged the TV over night to see if it needed some sort of reset. Model = KV-20FV12. Purchased in 2004



    My connection is a direct cable connection - Comcast cable. Same problem persist while showing a DVD as well.

    I have a Sony KV-24FV12. My picture blacks out and comes back on constantly and sound is OK. I have Comcast and connection is fine. This also occurs viewing DVD's. I noticed that this occurs when a light or whitish object appears on the screen. I can stop the blacking out by reducing the brightness way down but then the picture becomes too dark and tiring on the eyes and unenjoyable to watch. I tried the power disconnect reset technique as suggested by Sony. Did not solve problem. I believe this problem is an inherent flaw with this chassis and should warrent a recall. But in the meantime, how can this problem be resolved?

The capacitors at the main power supply regulator board should be checked and replaced. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair! Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center!

Green tint on screen especially with dvds. picture also cuts out for a few minutes every hour or so on our sony kds-50a2020


Usually in this set if screen gradually changes to something other than black and white the optical light engine is the problem---major part.

Google the model number with "problems" or "light engine" to learn more.

Picture is a little fuzzy and does not fit the screen


Good Day, mopar69;

Try this and if does not work, call SONY TV with Model and Serial NUMBERS, this sounds like you may have a defective light engine, and they are having problems with them, and they , Sony, are covering that device.

Restoring unit to Factory Preset Condition

1) Power off the set (set is now in Standby Mode).
2) On the remote, Press DISPLAY, CHANNEL 5, VOL +, POWER.
3) On the Remote press CHANNEL 8, ENTER.
4) Wait until Initial Setup is displayed.
5) Turn off TV sets power by the Remote or Front Panel button.
6) WAIT AT LEAST 3 MINUTES UNTIL THE LAMP COOLS DOWNS BEFORE UNPLUGGING OR DISCONNECTING THE AC FROM THE TV. If the set is not allowed to cool down the lamp may be damaged by excess heat build up.

I hope this was helpful, Good Luck, big IRISH.

Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television power problem


It does sound like a power supply problem but that can be misleading because a problem somewhere else in the TV can be "holding down" the power supply. This can usually be determined by using some isolation techniques.

Screen flashes green and tv shuts off


The average life of a picture tube now days is only 6 to 7 years,base on the symptom and the age of the set I hate to tell you but your picture tube is bad and it has to be replaced but a new picture tube for this set would cost more than a brand new television,I would suggest not to spend any money and invest in a new set.Sorry
