Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS510 36" TV
A video IC (integrated circuit) is one of the many parts in your TV. As the name implies, it's one of the parts that does video processing. Any IC is physically a plastic package with metal leads that connect to the circuit board. Replacement involves removing the solder from those connections and taking the old part out, then soldering the new one in. Depending on the package style and location in the set, this can range from very easy to darn near impossible without specialized equipment.
I gather from the way you've asked your question, though, that you should probably not be trying to repair a TV yourself. Without some training in electronics, troubleshooting techniques, the proper tools and some experience, TV servicing can be hazardous to you as well as possibly causing more damage to the set. I would advise you to leave the repairs to a professional servicer. If you want to keep the TV it would be money well spent.
