Re: Sony tv snow for first 5 minutes on

Probably dry solder joints in the tuner section.

When the set warms up, the faulty joint/s make contact, then lose contact again when it cools down.

Snow on Screen

There is a bad connection inside the tuner of the set. In order to repair this, the tuner must be removed and opened. This repair should be simple for any TV repair shop and not cost much. This is simply a resolder job. It will take a few minutes to get at the part that needs to be resoldered though. Call around and get a few prices for a resolder of the tuner input "F" connector.

Sony TV Toubleshooting Help

I had the same problem. Can't remember where, but I had to re-solder some joints. If you look very closely to the bottom of the motherboard, you might be able to see a cracked solder joint, otherwise carefully touch each one to fix it. Easy fix and the tv's been running flawless for going on 3 years now. 
Be careful to not touch anything on the high voltage side with your hands. Even with it unplugged.

Channel Reception

It sounds like a defective tuner or a IF module as well. It may also be a defective capacitor(s) or cold solder joints inside the tuner circuitry. I woud suggest to use a VCR or a TV convertor connected to an Audio/video input to change channels instead of fixing it.
Good Luck.

Sony Trinitron TV Snow

I found out accidentally, is when I push the "demo" button, which shows many of the features on the TV. It'll run through the demo a few times, for as much as 10 minutes, then the TV will be fine. as you are getting fine picture on demo it indicates that your tv is perfectly ok. problem is out side of tv 1 check cable connection for loose or its socket is loose. 2 wire might be old or defective. 3 check tunning is done properly 4 if every thing is fine then check for tuner in your tv. good luck

Takes about 5 minutes for picture to appear... Then every one to two minutes the picture disappears. It comes back on for 1 - 2 minutes then repeats. When set if first turned on, the stereo/stand-by light (red) flashes on/off until just before picture first appears .if your tv is very old than it might be due to crt getting weak crt base loose loose contact in power supply thanks

1/3 of picture becomes partially scrambled

sounds like you have a frame fold-over fault, does banging the tv have any effect (slightly bang the set on the sides), if it does then its more than likely a dry joint, check all around the frame output chip, hope this is of some help to you
