I have a old 52 inch sony tv turns on but picture blinks off and on whats wrong

A lot of their older sets (both regular TV sets and big rear projection set had this issue).

In either case it may mean with age the MASTER SCREEN control/s need to be adjusted slightly up---if too dim a picture it will blink.

A model number would tell me what to try.

Models beginning with KP are large projection and ones with KV are regular sets.

Replaced lamb, tv is still very dim`. what next?

Some of these sets use two mirrors--this may be one of those. Other than the large mirror in the back of the set--there may be a tiny mirror at the bottom.

Some idiot had the bright idea of having the optical lens put the picture into the smaller mirror which placed it on the large mirror. If this is the case that tiny mirror will be covered with dust and dirty.

Only one way to find out. You have to remove entire front screen unit to see if it has the tiny mirror. I can tell you how.

Dim and Wavy Picture

Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

WS-65807 picture goes black when using HiDef Signal

Tank, If the unit operates correctly on DVD then we can assume that the signal chain and display is operational. Can you substitute the Directv receiver to rule the box out as part of the problem? I know they came out and checked but how exhausting was the testing? Have you checked signal strength on the directv on screen setup? Low or marginal signal strength could cause intermittent blanking. When the screen goes dark does the audio continue? please let us know..
