Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS510 36" TV

1 Answer

Initial setup The "Initial Setup" auto program screen keeps flashing on and off intermittantly, more and more frequently, no matter what you try to do to stop it. I am having some the same identical problems the guys are with their Sony 32 inch tvs where the initial setup pops up. Try to change channels and you can't with the remote. Video 1 displays. Just a true pain.

This is commonly caused by the CRT going too weak, and the AKG circuits are switching off the bias to the CRT. This is part of the high voltage regulation protection.

Other causes, but are rare to cause this, are failures in the bias circuits, high voltage regulation (flyback assembly), and in the scan amplifiers.

With proper experience, reference to the service manual, and the proper set-up, it is possible to determine the causes of the failure, and service it. The cost of the parts will be rather expensive if you can still have access to them.

Initial Setup Screen


Have you ever cleaned the set front glass with windex or glass cleaner.Sometimes the fluid runs down before you can wipe and lands inside right on top of the push buttons that control ( CH,VOL, MENU, etc.) If this happens you can get this trouble. If you up to it take the cover off and look at the board just under the front edge of the crt. If you see green or grey residue you probably have to remove that corresponding TAC switch. You can just cut out and use the remote for that function.

Initial setup


First give it a hard reset. To do this you must unplug the power cord for at least 4 hours; then try again.  This will reset the internal programming and restore it to factory defaults settings. Unplugging for a shorter period of time may not do the trick.

If the hard reset does not solve the problem it has a defective eeprom OR a bad voltage regulator that feeds the controller IC/eeprom set.  In which case you will need a tv tech to dignose the exact fault and determine the defective parts. (There are over 100 parts associated with these functions).

Hope this helps.

Initial Set up image


I am having this same problem. It seemed to clear up on its own at first, but it has since returned. It seems to occur most often after the TV has been on for a couple of hours. I contacted Sony Tech cupport and they recommend having the set serviced. I haven't yet, since it seemed to "fix itself," but now that the issue has resurfaced I'm likely to take it in unless someone has a suggestion as to what is causing it, and how to resolve it.

Heh. I just gave my set the "Fonzie treatment" after I was convinced the initial setup notice was messing with me. The problem cleared right up. No joke.
