Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36FS120 36" TV

1 Answer

Screen flickers upon power up

Sony 36" Trinitron WEGA, I purchased this T.V. about 8 years ago. When it has been off for some time, upon initial power up the screen flickers for about 10-15 min. Once the screen has stopped flickering the picture is fine. If left on for a while I can turn it on like a half hour later without any flickering. Should I just ride this thing out until the picture goes completely out? Please let me know what you think. Thanks

Re: Screen flickers upon power up

Looks like your picture tube is dying, or there is a bust capacitor(s) inside...I'd recommend taking it to a service shop to get it repaired.

How do i fix this

I just posted this in a previous message:
"In both cases, I think you are either suffering from a failed power supply or the supply is cycling because of a 'downstream' problem that could be in the high voltage circuit. In each case, the blink count probably would tell you approximately where the problem is located but only a Sony tech will have access to the codes. After all, we are only mortals.  "

Most likely the green electron-gun in the CRT is failing.

36 inch sony wega trinitron

I had the same issue earlier this week. 4 year old sony trinitron wega 32 in. I was told by Sony to call technician to repair and have called tech....could be anywhere from $200-$300 repair. I did research the blinks (google "sony blinking codes" to find out what each means) Ours was 6-7 blinks which meant power surge to tv. I advised to Sony that i saw many of the same issues with many of the newer tv's and suggested a recall issue--they denied and where no help.
I will buy a new tv now--definitly not a Sony.

WEGA 36" : Screen is low contrast and green

Sorry to say, it sounds like a bad picture tube, But could be also the capacitor that filters the screen voltage on the crt drivers. In all my years though, your complaint has been the picture tube. Good Luck.

Sony Trinitron TV will not turn on

First thing that comes to mind is that the horizontal driver transformer has bad solder connections on the primary and the secondary windings. Also a set this old could also have a defective regulator IC if you dont know wht m saying , b=est thing to do is find out how much an estimate is then go back to best buy and see what a new set cost cause man you got your moneys worth outa this one for sure!!!!! Good Luck
