Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-32FS120 32" TV

1 Answer

Sony CRT TV stops working

The CRT seems fine.
First, it's the tuner that could not remember its settings.
Then, it's intermittently either not producing any sound or not displaying any picture, or both.
Now, the only thing I can use it for is as a dumb monitor, hooking it to a HD digital set top box, which has the aerial connection.
Is it worth fixing this TV?
It's a heavy Kirara Basso 32" Sony TV, that I bought in 1995.

Can you please advise which external tv tuner will work for SONY trinitron kv-xf21m80 model? My SONY crt tv tuner is not catching most VHF B/G channels. i sought the services of an authorised service...


If you have a cable box and can set your TV to channel 3 then you should be able to watch cable. If you want to watch over the air broadcasts then you need a digital converter box which you can buy at Best Buy for around 40 dollars. You use the converter box as the tuner and set your TV on channel 3.

Sony Trinitron - Model KV35S66


The tuners in many Sony sets often develop bad solder connections that can cause this kind of tuning trouble. The tuner can be replaced to fix the problem, and it's also often possible to repair it. To repair the tuner, it needs to be removed from the board in the set, the cover removed, and all the connections from the tuner circuit board to the metal shield can need to be resoldered. The metal can is used as the ground connection for many places on the tuner, and the connections develop cracks and become intermittent or fail completely. When you use the video input, you bypass the tuner so you have the nice clear picture.

This repair should be handled by a technician who's experienced with soldering on small circuit boards. Improperly done, this repair can do more damage to the small, closely-spaced circuit board traces. Many technicians would rather simply replace the tuner than do the repair. Depending on the price of the part and how labor is charged, it may cost the same either way.

No signal


Good day. Try to check the tuner section. You mention that it functions good in auxilliary functions. check tuner section and system IC.

Picture Problem


Your TV's tuner is the problem. 1st thing to try is just to sesolder its connections to the main circuit board. If that doesn't work replace the tuner. Also could put a meter on the power coming into the tuner and see if it is drooping in sync with your picture. Tuners are not that expensive to replace.

Model 2780R intermittant Picture & Sound Failure


The set has loose power conections to the tuner and judging by the model it might have other loose conections in the chassis,the loose conections need to be resoldered and might not be easy to find,try taping the side of the set to see if it reacts while is doing the problem.Be safe and call a technician unless you are familiar with tv service.

Sony tv picture keeps flashing


You likely have bad solder connections around the tuner area. This model has a history of problems in that area or the tuner itself.
