Question about Televison & Video

Sony Trinitron Model No. Kv-27TS36 made in January 1994

Screen doesn't work. It goes on and all you can hear is sound, no image. Apparently the Timer/Stand by light is flashing every second or so. It represents some kind of failure but I dont remember which one.

Any ideas of what it is?
Would it cost me more to repair it than to buy a new one? (how much would it be, more or less?)

Thanks, Sincerely

    My Sony Trinitron KV 27TS36 1994 tv screen remains dark once turned on. There were strange things that happened months before this recent problem. The television would make clicking noises from time to time whether off or on. In addition the tv would click and shut off now and then while watching it, though I was able to turn it back on without any problem, using the cable remote.However, after watching tv earlier today and turning it off and later turning it on again all I got was sound. Are the parts still made and is it worth trying to get fixed? Or is it time for me to save up for a LCD or Plasma TV? If so, what brand and size would you recommend for someone who can barely afford this extra expense, but wants a quality tv?

Check the screen in a totally dark room.
If you see no sign of flashing or illumination from the screen, it is likely that the high voltage section has failed.
Worse yet, if the CRT filiment has failed, the Trinitron tube is quite costly and I don't think anyone is rebuilding them any more.
In either case, parts and labor will probably total more than the replacement cost unless you have a friend who will do the diagnosis and repair for you.
Along with your set, my whole profession is obsolete!

Sony wega trinitron won't turn on

  • Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505
  • 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.

    Sony Trinitron Flat Screen 15" TV - Sound not working, image pauses every 5 seconds

    Sounds like a DVD player issue. The TV is all analog and can't replicate issues like that.
