Question about Sony KV-32S26 32" TV
This sony has done me right for the last 10 years but now its having some issues.
Warm up time is long. Flickers on and off for a few minutes. Greenish tint when black. Last its out of focus.
I went to a repairman and his solution is to toss it. He new the exact model of the tv after I told him only two problems. He said, the blackout of the screen and flicker is some sony put in place so if the tv was not showing a quality picture it would just be black. This was to prevent someone viewing a sony and seeing poor quality and then not wanting to buy one. True or False.
Any way I would like to know if there are any solutions to fixing these problems for a intermediate electronics tech. I am going to upgrade but I could put this tv in my garage for my football games or something.
Thanks for the help
There is a control on the flyback for focus and screen brightness

Okay the color issue and powering up issue I can deal with but the out of focus is driving me crazy...is there a resistor pot or something i could tweak to get me back into focus

I regret to tell you that he is probably right. The problem is the trinitron picture tube. Sony advertised it with such high esteem for years and wouldn't doubt that they would do that. The phospher is burned out in the tube and the guns (red, green and blue) are weak and the focus electrobes in the tube are also weak although Sony made it a lot different that any other tube requiring extra circuitry. There is no fix for this. If you could bypass the blacking out you would still have the bad out of focus picture problem
