Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32HS420 32" TV

1 Answer

Sound at power on

My Sony Wega makes a loud buzz sound when powered on. Very similar to the old console televisions back in the 70's. Is there a solution for this problem? I think I purchased the extended warranty but the tv is about 3 years old so I don't know if it is still in effect.

    Thank you for the information. Glad to hear it is not a component failure!

    I have the same issue, but am also experiencing a buzzing sound from the right speaker only when sound is playing from TV (i.e. when TV is not muted). It seems to be worse (louder) when certain colors are on the screen, especially red. Its incredibly distracting, but the set isn't that old & I'd hate to get rid of it so soon.

The sound you are hearing is the degausing coil which will vibrate for a second when the tv is turned on. This part demagnetizes the picture tube and this sound is really quite normal. Depending on the position of this coil it may vibrate against the front cabinet of the tv and may sound loud at times. If this really bothers you then you need to have the rear cover removed and have it repositioned a bit do it won't vibrate so loudly. Or you can enjoy the buzz for the short time it happens and not worry about it.

Speakers had a buzzing/vibrating noise. had them replaced. still making same noise. happens on very low and loud volume. any idea what it could be? possibly the sound board?

maybe just poor speakers.....had a similar problem with an old sony. Replaced the speakers twice and always had a noticeable buzzing. Try running external speakers (computer speakers will work) at low volume to see if you hear it in those. If so, you may have sound board issue.

No picture and buzzing sound on Sony XBR Wega

Is the bulb light flashing ? - Sony's bulb light is very accurate in telling you if the bulb is bad. The buzzing sound could be from the balist trying to strike the lamp. You also may want to open the lamp door and see if the bulb is shattered.
