Re: Sony KV27v15 DOA

The high voltage circuit also runs the horizontal deflection circuit and much of the rest as well. The horizontal problems you describe were a prelude to high voltage failure. If the TV is anywhere near 10 years old (how come you guys never give the age????) it isn't worth the cost of overhauling the high voltage circuit. You might be able to replace just the H.O.T. but the flyback is the source of the failure.

The right side of our screen keeps going dark, almost black. Once I tapped the side of the tv and it popped back to normal. Sometimes it goes back to normal by itself. It is black most of the time though....

Yes usually fixable unless its the panel goning bad. What if you squeze the panel where the black bar is does that effect it. If so the cabinet is probably bowed. Hope this helps.

Sony KV-32FS13:Pictured slightly bowed down at sides

Your symptoms sound like you have a problem in the pincushion circuit.
I would recommend you have a technician take a look at this, as this can be a tricky circuit to trouble shoot.

HV Sound no Picture

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! :)

Picture fuzzy

I would suggest to unplug the tv from the wall for about 15 minutes and then plug it back in,and turn it on,this should reset the microprocessor and realign the colors back to normal.let Us know how it goes and if you need more help.

KV-XJ29M50 29" TV-Loud thumping sound on startup

Symptoms are not related,what you hear is the high voltage turning on and that is normal if it only does it for less than a second,the grainy picture might be intermitant,dont turn it off,when the picture is grainy tap the side of the set to see if it racts and if it does you know you have a loose conection.This could be outside because of a loose ground on tha cable or inside in the tuner.

Black vertical line on right side (intermitant)

Your problem sounds like the stk type regulator.. Itsnot a really expensive part BUT on a set this old yes you can repair it but also your gonna be repairing it more and more as the capacitors are drying up and the circuit is getting brittle. I wouldnt invest anything in this set. time to make a boat anchor out of it!
