Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32FS120 32" TV

1 Answer

Sony Wega 32-5yrs-olf goes to a red background and turns off

If you immediately turn it on again, red background persists. 5min later it turns off. Let set for 1/2 hour and color comes back until it seems to heat up again. Any thoughts?

Hello jim .. that could be a short from grid to cathode in the picture tube ..usually thats just a loose flake of phospher and can be knocked out with a special electrical gadget .. sometimes called a cathode beamer .. some times we used to use a charged capacitor to knock out the short .. not sure if anyone does that anymore .. sometimes you can kick loose the particle by tapping on the neck of the CRT with a plastic screw driver handle (not hard) .. there is another possibility .. on the back of the CRT is an electronic circuit board .. there are three larger transistors that drive each gun ... be careful because there is about 300 volts on those transistors ... but if you touch each one you might find one that is cool .. the others will be hot or luke warm .. the cool one is likely shorted (if your screen goes to bright red) ... that will give you full brightness on that color .. so yours would be the transistor for the red gun ... once in a while there is a bad IC on the main board that drives those high voltage transistors also a bad solder connection is seen once in a while ... a volt meter or scope would quickly narrow down the possibilities .. since the problem is thermally related then you might be able to pinpoint the part by using freeze spray to cool one part at a time ... sorry this is so technical but its a technical problem .it would take a good tv shop only a few minutes to zero in on the problem but they charge so much anymore that its a risk unless you have an agrement on estimate beforhand . ..

My Sony wega tv won't turn on goes into standby red light blinks 10 times then shuts off?


Look at the owner manual as the 10 blinks is a error code or Google the model number to locate that information--Sony error codes are general and often misleading.

I would if looking at the set inspect the lamp first.

Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.

Changed lamp and TV won't turn on, power light flashes 3 times


Hi,
Red light blinking 3 times shows problem with lamp cover.
Lamp cover is not fixed securely in your tv after lamp replacement. Lamp cover is first thing that was removed to replace lamp, check lamp cover and make sure its back in place properly.
Thanks.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times


helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

Comes on and later goes blank


How much later? The Sony sets have a setting in the menu that turnes the TV off if there isnt' any input, Sometimes this feature gets messed up, and the feature has to be turned off, Check that out and see if that takes care of the problem.
