Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Sony Trinitron Model KV-29XBR85, purchased in 1989. Turning it on earlier this week, the picture horizontal (left and right sides) frame is caved in, so the picture is now in the shape of an hour glass. The older tvs had a horizontal and vertical hold adjustment. This tv does not. I am wondering if there is some adjustment that I could perform internally. I'd hate to give the tv up as I've grown attached to it, while my wife is secretly routing for a flat screen and is happy.

    Hi Dan,



    Thanks for your email. Yes, the picture is still good except for the "squeeze" from either end, which does distort the wording at the bottom of a newscast, etc., but the picture seems OK other than that.

This is a pincushion problem that can be as simple as a poor solder connection. Is the picture still a good quality (except for the curve)?

Finding someone to work on this may be tricky and the labor cost is likely to exceed $100. I would inquire at a couple of repair shops to get a verbal estimate based upon the model and the symptom before a decision is made. In the meantime, I'll look up the model to tyr and estimate the parts cost.

    I'll need to do some more hunting for the service manual for your model. I don't have it electronically. A paper search is needed. Stay tuned...

  • Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505

No frame in other words.

Sony Trinitron Picture Tube replacement


I think that you will find the picture tube to be more expensive than a replacement TV, if it is still available (unlikely). That being said, it is also unlikely that the tube itself is the problem, The more common problem is the horizontal output transistor or the flyback transformer. Either part should still be available for a reasonable cost. Check with a local servicer for the part numbers and costs. These are common parts.

No picture or sound


6 blinks usually means a loss of the horizontal signal. This can be as simple as a bad capacitor or jungle IC. I'll look up your specific model, but do you intend to repair this yourself? If so, please update this and I'll provide additional details and instructions.

Blank screen on sony trinitron tv


The problem with this model is the large parts due to poor wave soldering. Locate the transistor Q605. Using a small wattage soldering iron melt the solder and add a little solder to all the large parts in the area. Small wattage = 15 to 30 watt. Stay away from the surface mounts they are not the problem. I resoldered the following: D647
Q605 C690 D645 D620 R691 Q691
These parts are located on the main board, the one the power cord connects to. Carefully press the clip on the left side of the board (as you look at it from the rear of the tv) carefully pull the main board back and out of the rails. You will find the parts on the right side of the main board about 2 inches over 2 inches down.

OPTION 1- TAKE THE BACK OFF THERE ARE 2 SMALL SCREWS YOU WILL NEED A SMALL SCREW DRIVER TWIST THE ONE ON TH RIGHT UNTIL BLINKING GOES AWAY THE VIBRATION FROM THE VOLUME WILL CAUSE IT TO GO OUT OF WHACK AGAIN SHORTLY WITH IN WEEKS. JUST KEEP DOING THIS.
OPTION 2 - TAKE THE TV OUT BACK GO TO YOUR LOCAL SPORTSMAN WHAREHOUSE PURCHASE A SKS AND SHOOT THE CRAP OUT OF THE PEICE OF CRAP. THEN GET A CREIDT CARD AND PURCHASE A NEW LCD NOT A PLASMA
