Red picture hi, the problem started with the picture blacking out for a few seconds at a time once in while say every half hour give or take...that went on for a few days... then that problem stopped but the picture then went red...like the transmission was coming from mars! this happens if the source is satalite tv or dvd. when there is no signal the tube is all red with horizontal lines running across it about 4" apart from the top to bottom. this has been a great set (5 yrs old). would like to save it. Please help! thanks, ben

Assuming this is a TV with a picture tube and not plasma or LCD; I'm afraid that your picture tube is dying on you one electron gun at a time. From what you said your green electron gun is almost totally dead and the two remaining blue & green guns aren't far behind. Eventually you'll have no picture at all and I would estimate that to be about 6 more months but whatever the time eventually it will go totally black. These blackout periods will get longer and longer. The only way to fix your problem is a new picture tube but my will probably find it less expensive to just get a brand new TV set.

Decora 6124H Timer


Leviton 6124 timer instructions:
Timer comes with plastic protector over display >> remove protector to see display.
Large button is manual override.
After timer is wired, push override to make sure Load turns ON and OFF.

Timer has 3 small buttons located below manual override used for programming
Display is divided into 24-hours with am times on left and pm on right.
24 Hour day is divided into 1/2 Hour segments
Each 1/2 hour must be set for ON or OFF

Start by pushing left-side event-cursor-advance-button and it scrolls down each 1/2 Hour.
Once you arrive at 1/2 hour > make decision if you want timer ON or OFF for that half hour.

Press event-set-reset-button in center to set ON-OFF for that 1/2 hour.

Press center event-set-reset-button and solid black rectangle fills in for that half hour.
Solid black rectangle means timer ON for that 1/2 Hour.

Once solid square is selected, press event-cursor-advance-button and cursor advances again and starts filling in black rectangles for each 1/2 Hour period.
Keep filling in black rectangles for all times you want timer ON.

When you reach 1/2 Hour period you want timer OFF, then press center event-set-reset-button so that no black rectangle is visible for that 1/2 hour.
No black rectangle means timer is OFF for that half hour.

To set current time, use right-side time-advance-button.
Press and hold time-advance and time cursor advances down through the am and then pm hours.
Stop cursor at current time, and timer is ready.

Two problems: first, tv turns off for about 10 seconds after being on awhile, then turns back on. 2nd, picture will sometimes go black horizontally displaying only half of the upper screen. This will go on for about an hour off and on.

Tv won't come one and blinks red 7 times then stops.


When the bottom half of the picture goes out this usually indicates a failure of the lower Y driver module. When this module fails it will often take out the Y sustain module and when that happens the set goes into over current shut down. Both boards will have to be replaced. All of this is assuming you have a Plasma set and not a LCD flat panel.

Standby Lamp


Count the flashes of the standby light and the gap between them as this will give you the exact error code for the fault. Then check handbook or sony forums for the solutions. Like I have said in other posts sony and 3rd party dont really go together but it does not mean that because I have had those experiences it applies to all products and components. Hope this helps.
