Question about Sony KV-36XBR400 36" TV
Problem began one month ago (and shortly after finishing a custom stand for it). Turn TV on, sound, no picture. Initially switching power on and off 10 or 15 times and picture would appear. As problem progressed had to operate for an hour or 2 with no picture then cycle power once to get picture.
Isolated to HV transformer. 30 seconds with hair dryer 3 inches from side of transformer before turning on works every time.
TV will now shut off and flash 6 on the LED after operating for a few hours (getting shorter) If I switch on again within about a minute or two I will have picture. If I wait more than a few minutes, the hair dryer is needed again.
Anyone seen this? Is the transformer replaceable? I’m qualified and competent with a soldering iron. Where can I order the transformer?
Sounds as though there is an intermitant, heat-related problem with the HV transformer. You can order this at a tv parts shop or from Sony (probably more expensive) the part number should be on the part or on a schematic. If not, the parts dealer can look it up from the model number.
Good luck! :)
