It is very common to have the convergance circuit on these sets go out and cause display distortions. Are the colors separated or is just the picture slanted?

My Trinitron's mostly fine, though it's a few years old, but it has a strange display issue. It's almost as though the picture is "zoomed in" about 8%, cutting off about 1 to 1 1/2 inches of...

This problems u are having it is not the causes by the tv,because ur tv it is a analoge CRT tv,don't have this functions zooming in or out or the problems just causes only 8% cutting off edges of the tv pictures only.If the problem it is happening to ur analoge tv it will have no vertical hold at all.The devices u are connected to the tv and using have zoomming in or out buttons or ajustment buttons of the sizes of the picture on the screen.Used the devices remotes controls to readjust ur zooming or pictures sizes adjutment.

Got a 55 inch panosonic tv four years old no sound or picture, flashing light on front color red say's lamp please help

That TV uses different types of lamps to display the RGP spectrum. You may be able to find the replacement lamp on ebay but the cost to repair those types of TVs is generally not worth it.

Sony KD-36XS955 36 inch wega televison has yellow caste, cannot adjust to get any blue color. Has same problem on both cable and Directv. Unit is about 3 years old.

It is one of two issues, the blue video driver is defective, or the blue gun in the picture tube is open. This will need a tv tech to varify the problem and suggest a course of action.

Standby/stereo light blinking no picture or sound

My picture would go out after several minutes but I still had sound. I took the rear cover off and blew all the dust off with compresed air.I did this for a few times over several days nothing happened.I also took off the rear circuit board that attaches to the tube with a round pin socket and blew that with compressed air and put it back on. The TV has now worked for two days without the picture going out. It worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My TV is 9 years old.

Screen goes black and resets during HD shows

I just posted this to another Sony owner:

Another point; HD Ready does not mean that it is HD compatible without the addition of an optional part.
The title only implies that it can be adapted to HD reception.
If you did not purchase it with the set, check your user guide to see what you need to make it whole.
You may have to seek this add-on on eBay since it is not guaranteed that Sony will still offer it.

You might want to check this:

My tv suxxx

I'm assuming this is a projection set given the size. Sony TV's have circuits to monitor picture tube operation and cut off video when something isn't within limits. It's very likely your set has one or more bad tubes (there are 3, for red, green and blue), troubles on the circuit boards connecting to them, or problems with the set's control circuits. This set should be serviced by a professional if you want to keep it.

My 51 inch tv

The answer is complicated. A "shadow" in the video images can mean many things. There can be a frequency response problem in the analog processing of the video signal, or a timing problem with the processing of the video signal at the digital or analog level, or there can be a fault in the display drivers or display itself where the address location is not correct. There are even more things that can cause shadows and other types of similiar faults.

You will have to take the set to the service rep to have it properly diagnosed for the exact fault. Get an estimate before deciding to service the set. Some of these repairs can be fairly expensive because of the time involved.

NO Picture On 2 Video Inputs ( 1 front 1 rear ) : Sound OKAY

Since it is 5 years old mostly dry soldered appears. First sort out the soldered problem. Then check zener diode in video input path is short. Mostly the diode is short. Still get problem check video switching ic also. I think former is the most problem.
