Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Tried turning on my Sony and no picture no sound, just a black screen

My cable works but there's no picture. The timer/bystand light blinks and few times and then just stops. Please help!

1997 Sony KV-27S26

We have to let the TV warm up before the picture will come in.

Sometimes it takes 25 minutes and it is just luck that after turningthe TV on and off the picture will come in. Volume is fine, channel's are fine, the picture is perfect when it finally warms up.

We know the TV works.....just frustrating because we never know if the picture will come in.

Sony is known for having problems with the picture tube. Sometimes it will blink on and off. also bad connections on the main board. A CRT restorer will sometimes help with picture tube problems but this must be done by a tech that has one.

I have a sony tv model kv-27v42 i have sound but no pictture and stand by light blinks what is the problem

How many times do this standby light blinks at a time of switch on? These blinks are fault indications. From the number of these blinks, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. Count it. If you wish to get more details about the blinking codes to Sony TVs, check this link.

Sony kv-27v40 standby/timer blinks 5 times

Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

This is a fault that cannot be repaired by a user. It isn't even a feasible repair , just get a new box

Snow on Screen

There is a bad connection inside the tuner of the set. In order to repair this, the tuner must be removed and opened. This repair should be simple for any TV repair shop and not cost much. This is simply a resolder job. It will take a few minutes to get at the part that needs to be resoldered though. Call around and get a few prices for a resolder of the tuner input "F" connector.
