Question about Sony KV-36XBR400 36" TV

1 Answer

Trinitron KV-36XBR400 I have a neighbor who's TV picture went dead. I looked at it: first time I turned it on, green light blinked 7 times. Next time I tried it, it blinked 5 then shut off. I can hear the hum-click of the tube warm-up when I hit the power button. I tried both remote & panel botton to make sure it wasn't that. We unplugged it for about 10 min (while removing the rear panel) then turned it on again to see. It blinks 5 times. I saw no visual evidence of damage (there had been a couple lightening storms). There actually wasn't even much dust back there. He said he bought it around 2000 or 2001 and it's been getting progressively harder to turn it on. He had unplugged it before and replugged it in and it worked again up until now. No one but me will go to their house to fix the thing and I need some help, please!

Yeah I have a solution: I thought your site would offer basic guidance, but apparently not. I found better advice and specific guidance for free on the agoraquest dot com website. They have experts there who even told me right down to which chip pins should measure what voltage, and are willing to help people without trying to make a buck first. Thanks anyways and good luck selling something that's offered for free elsewhere!

SOURCE: Our Trinitron KV-36XBR400 powers up then no picture

How old is this tv?More than 5 years old.Not worth it to repair CRT tv at this prices.Tries unplug,replug an hour later,might help,see if reset itself.U can buy a pretty good 32" LCD tv at $400 or less these day.It not heavy as the CRT tv,it alot easier to move the tv around the house or other locations.

You are correct. You are right about the power supply and replacing with led hdtv. You will be happy with a Samsung led. Time to upgrade.

Sony Vega Service Codes


KV-32HS510 and KV-27HS420, seven times blink error code shows problem in Horizontal deflection circuit.

There are many possibilities like dry solder joints, weak capacitors, Horizontal transistor short or flyback transformer fried etc.

If you have little experience of TV repair and good solder skills and have necessary tools to test / check defective parts, then you can make it. you also need to have related service manual to see board location, schematics and part numbers.
