Sony triniton screen

I have an older TV (not flat) and the picture disappears. It goes black on half and then disappears. The sound comes through. Is it repairable and is it worth repairing?
Thank you

Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking

This should be a quick fix. Try resoldering the vertical IC. This is a small flat IC attached to a heat sink with about 11 pins. It should be marked LA7837 or something similar. That should resolve the problem.

Keep us posted.

Sony Trinitron - Picture Disappears

Hi, IK circuit is engaging which basically means the picture tube is getting tired, the only "fix" is temporary (may get another year out of it). You have to increase the "screen control clockwise".
Remove back of set, follow large black or red wire attatched to picture tube down to the flyback transformer, mounted on flyback are two black controls, one is focus (leave it alone) the other is "screen", adjust it clockwise approx. 1/4 inch, remember that this is a high voltage circuit so use one hand in the set the other hand out of the set at all times,any questions ? e-mail me back, good luck, BMW Rider

Sound and no picture

Hi, if your getting half a picture AND the other half is black the vertical circuit is failing, either solder is broken or vertical IC needs to be replaced, not a pricey fix, BMW Rider

Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking

The most common problem (I have fixed lots) is the Vertical amplifier has developed a loose connection. It probably just needs resoldering. As things expand it makes and looses connection you picture goes in and out. The vertical chip is a large black chip that gets hot, over time it degrades the solder until a connection is damaged. Most newer sets have a protection circuit that senses the lack of height, and shuts down the picture tube to save it. When the picture dropped to a line on older TVs and left that way too long it would burn a line into the face of the picture tube. You then had to have the picture tube replaced along with the vertical amp. it's kinda like a screensaver for your TV.

KV-35V65 Triniton Color TV.

CRT is probably going bad... You can talk to several Techs and they'll each give you their theory on what to do about it and some will say have it rejuvenated. But in the twenty years I've been in business it's never worth the money or effort...
If you elect to do so a tech can come out to the home (for a fee) and bring with him/her a crt tester/restorer, like a BK-467. They'll attach it to the cack of the picture tube, do a few measurements for emmission and shorts, then attempt to restore it... Now that may well look like a pretty good picture when they leave and it may last you a year or two - but the down side is it may fail again in less than an hour and you're back to square one, out the money for a service-call as well.
My best advice is start shopping for a new TV and maximize your investment...
Hope this helps!

No picture on a Sony KV-32V65 TV

AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the Cboard, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking.
