Question about Sony KV-35V35 TV

1 Answer

Sony Trinitron KV35V35

Screen is flashing. Started slowly, now flashes every 1 or 2 seconds. It takes about 10 minutes to get any picture at all. When you turn the tv on, a tiny light where the controls are blinks for about 10 minutes or so, and when the light goes out, the picture comes on but flashes. It is now flashing constantly and does not stop. When this first started a couple of weeks ago, as the tv warmed up it would stop flashing, now it flashes constantly.

Re: Sony Trinitron KV35V35

Could be a weak Picture tube . You can try turning up the screen control but don't turn it up too much you'll get retrace lines in the picture . Turn it alittle at time until picture comes on then turn it down until the retrace lines go away . Then try turning the tv on and off to make sure it comes back on. Be careful you can get shocked if you do this while it is on and you touch one of the circuits . The control is on the flyback or the module thats on the picture tube it will say screen by it . If this does not work you could have vidoe problems or just the picture is no good . Good luck

I have a Sony Trinitron about 7 yrs old. The picture is flashing on and off. The sound is constant. The flashing was happening about the first 5-10 minutes after turning it on then it would stop. Now its...

Hi there
Sorry to be the one to have tell you that but yes your tube is dying.
In sony tv`s the video(picture) is off until the tube has warmed up and now that it is getting weaker it has difficulty reaching the point where it will bring out the video.
If you want to clear that problem for a while , you can open the back of the set.
You will see a round transformer(flyback) with two controls on it and a thick red wire that connects to the back of the tube.
With the tv on turn the lower control up slowly , you`ll see the brilliance go up and that will help with the flashing picture for a while.
If you see lines across the picture when you adjust that control it is because you have reach the max the tube can take , just turn it back down until they disappear .
Hope this help have fun
