Hi,

From the symptoms you describe, it seems the high voltage flyback autotransformer has failed along with the horizontal amplifier (they are slaved to each other).

Well, the only way to solve this is to get a technician take a look at the set, I'm afraid. Repairs could cost upto $100 or more, depending upon the number of components that need to be replaced,

Since the set is new, it may be worth getting fixed up. If you decide to do so, call around, as shops have different rates and different expertise. Many shops are hurting for work because so many of the smaller sets are never repaired anymore; they are just thrown out and replaced since the cost of a new set is sometimes as low as the repair expense.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers,

Why does my KD-32FS170 32" Sony Trinitron screen have blue hues


If you turn all of the color out of the TV, the picture should be black and white. If that picture is not a true black and white picture, the TV will produce a color picture that has that behind it. It takes the proper mixture of red, green and blue light to produce white. This is something that is done inside the glass picture tube.
In your case, one color (blue is stronger) and the others are weaker.
It probably had not been used for a while. SOMETIMES, the weaker colors will get stronger with use. Adjust the brightness and picture controls to get the closest you can to a black and white picture, and then add the amount of color that seems right to you. Use the TV and hope for the best. It will improve, but 2%, 10%, or 50%; I do not know. The proper repair is to replace the glass picture tube, which is not an option at this time. So, turn it on, play games, and HOPE for the best.

Sony trinitron KV-32S26 While watching the tv it went POP and the picture went pop. Is the picture tube shot?


not really..maybe an overloading of the secondary power supply could create this problem..check first the horizontal stage circuit for shorted component..before suspecting the picture tube

White lines on the screen.sounds ok.picture is coming behind white line.


Lines means Screen Drive is overdriving, try adjusting the Screen control on the FBT flyback Transfomer, adjust it down. If that does not Clear out Problem then replace the CRT Board that is connected to Picture Tube.

I have a sony trinitron kv-32xbr400 it works but the picture is almost like its out of focus it has lines running thru it


The description that you give indicates a video problem, it is a situation where the picture tube is over driven and makes the picture bloom and produces white lines on a angle, this is caused by an open resistor or a shorted video driver usually located on the back of the picture tube, "video board"

The screen will show a white line every few seconds, then will black out, this will go on as long as the TV is plugged in.


The Picture Tube of the TV must have got damaged. Give the TV to TV brand's technical support and change the picture tube, Thank You.

check the heater as your tv is ON, there must be a yellow light at the rear of the CRT tube. If the heater is ok then check the IC jungle side. resoldering the leads sometimes will solve. If not refer to your local Tech.

Sony Trinitron kv-27HFR blurry


the picture tube is gone.
i repaired 150 sony xbr and kv series with that problem.sony has a single gun not three and has a great pix,but burn out faster.
there is a main screen control that you can adjust ,but the tube is gone.
on the back of the crt there is 3 gun drives r g b .
turn the color all the way down so it is black and white.
if there is a green ore purple tint,one gun is out of balance.
ajdusting the r g b controls so that black and white is normal is what you want to do.
the crt board has the screen bias voltage 800volts on it so be very careful and use an insulated screwdriver to adjust the drive controls.

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
