Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS510 36" TV
I have one of those big and heavy 36 in sony trinitrons. I think there was a power outage while I was gone. Now the picture looks like everything has lines coming off of it, kind of smeared I guess. My JVC 19 in that was in the other room doesn't work now either, I'm not worried about it since the 19in is so cheap though.
From the symptoms you describe, it seems the high voltage flyback autotransformer has failed along with the horizontal amplifier (they are slaved to each other). The sound comes from the flyback unit. I guess it must be a high pitched squeal, actually...
Well, the only way to solve this is to get a technician take a look at the set, I'm afraid. Repairs could cost upto $100 or more, depending upon the number of components that need to be replaced,
Since the set is new, it may be worth getting fixed up. If you decide to do so, call around, as shops have different rates and different expertise. Many shops are hurting for work because so many of the smaller sets are never repaired anymore; they are just thrown out and replaced since the cost of a new set is sometimes as low as the repair expense.
Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
