    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?

Tv goes blank while viewing


It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.

You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done. It is that re-starting that gives it away, this is a typical switchmode Power Supply problem.

Blink power button and black screen


Most of the time it is due to a bad CRT. You have three of them in this set and if you do one, I would do them all so there would not be a color imbalance. The Cost of repairing the set would be too great to consider. I would estimate the cost of 900.00 in parts alone. Plus Sony does not have the CRT assemblies to send out. You must remove them from the unit and send them to Sony so they can mount new CRTs on the Optical Coupler. I would price a new set and let this one go.

MY problem with Sony KP-53S35 53 in. Rear Projection Television. When the TV powers on, the red light blinks until the picture comes on, then the red light blinks go off. I had to wait more than 5 minutes...


the number of flashes of the red indicator lamp points to the possible cause of the delay of the raster or picture, but usually it's an indicator of an emission unbalance between crt(picture tube) guns. the picture will take longer to show up as the emission on either of the picture tubes goes down.

TV only stays on for a minute. Screen goes blank for about 2 minutes. Then the picture pops back up on the TV. Model number is KDF-E55A20. Sony Wega HDTV. Made in 08/2006. Please advise....


I think TV on for minute or so, goes to standby and again power up, show picture for minute and again standby.
If above are symptoms then its time to replace lamp in TV.

Let me know if symptoms are different.

Could be a weak Picture tube . You can try turning up the screen control but don't turn it up too much you'll get retrace lines in the picture . Turn it alittle at time until picture comes on then turn it down until the retrace lines go away . Then try turning the tv on and off to make sure it comes back on. Be careful you can get shocked if you do this while it is on and you touch one of the circuits . The control is on the flyback or the module thats on the picture tube it will say screen by it . If this does not work you could have vidoe problems or just the picture is no good . Good luck

Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking


The most common problem (I have fixed lots) is the Vertical amplifier has developed a loose connection. It probably just needs resoldering. As things expand it makes and looses connection you picture goes in and out. The vertical chip is a large black chip that gets hot, over time it degrades the solder until a connection is damaged. Most newer sets have a protection circuit that senses the lack of height, and shuts down the picture tube to save it. When the picture dropped to a line on older TVs and left that way too long it would burn a line into the face of the picture tube. You then had to have the picture tube replaced along with the vertical amp. it's kinda like a screensaver for your TV.
