I too would like to know the solution to this question...we are having the identical problem and Sony doesn't seem to know how to fix it. Although, the picture from the DVD player is perfect, the pictures for cable & video games are terrible. Very frustrating!
Try doing a factory reset. With the TV turned off press mute 1 8 2 power on the remote. The tv should turn on with a service menu. If it does not, you have bad main board that will need to be replaced. If the menu does come up, scroll down until you see reset and press enter. TV should turn off. Turn the set back on and see if everything is back to normal.
The bulls eye is what us TV repair guys call it. It is a perfect description. The tube is good. The automatic degausing circuit is not working because the black square thermistor D805 needs resoldering on the bottom of the board. You will find that a magnet will affect it, and a degaussing coil will make it look perfect for 1 week. Soldering the thermistor is a permanent solution.
I found out accidentally, is when I push the "demo" button, which shows many of the features on the TV. It'll run through the demo a few times, for as much as 10 minutes, then the TV will be fine.
as you are getting fine picture on demo it indicates that your tv is perfectly ok.
problem is out side of tv
1 check cable connection for loose or its socket is loose.
2 wire might be old or defective.
3 check tunning is done properly
4 if every thing is fine then check for tuner in your tv.
Chuck the TV - probably
It depends on the repair facilities available where you live.
In big urban areas the cost of staffing a repair shop is such it can cost nearly as much per hour just to look at an item is it does to buy the next one-plus you get all the latest features.
