Your two options are to take it to a service shop, or the more likely and probably more cost effective option is to purchase a new Television. The newer model will have a far superior picture quality, cost less per inch of viewable area, and likely have more features than your prior T.V. as well.

good luck

    The problem is that it could be a number of things.

    It could be the tube itself, or it could be the circuit board that controls the tube - it is too hard to say without a tech running diagnostics on it. Purchasing the parts yourself would ultimately cost more than a new TV, unless you just happened to guess right. But then again, buying parts retail eats into the savings you would have from not hiring a service shop to work on it. I'm sure this is not what you were hoping for, but with the age of the unit - it is not likely cost effective to repair it even if you do it yourself.

I have sound but no picture...when I turn it tv has pictures but 2 minutes later it disappears


Hello
There is some loose or bad solderings on the CRT base board of your TV. CRT base board can be located at the back of the Picture Tube, just pluged onto it. Open the TV, and just resolder all the suspected point by applying a liitle more solder. Loose soderings are very difficult ot detect, and so I advice you to do the solderings to all suspected points. Also check the plug in strip solderings that comes from the main board to CRT base board also. Resolder all the CRT socket soderings also. Ok
If any more problems, contact me through Fixya.

This is a good indication that the picture tube is starting to fail. If you feel comfortable with the back cover off, try the following:

1) Remove the back cover (set the unit on the floor)
2) Locate the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top)
3) There will be one or two controls on it. One should be labeled screen and the other focus.
4) Turn the screen control slightly clockwise.

If the picture remains on, then the tube is starting to fail and the "fix" will buy you enough time to locate a replacement.

Update this with the results,

Thanks,
Dan

GREEN GLOW IN THE LEFT UPPER CORNER AND RIGHT LOWER CORNER


Magnetized The set is probably magnetized and needs degaussing (demagnetizing).
All CRT type TV's have an internal demagnetizing circuit that is engaged when the set is first turned on after being off for the day.
If this circuit is working then you sometimes hear a "bonk" sound (about 1/2 a second long when the set is first turned on. If this circuit isn't working the set will become magnetized over time and will have to be degaussed using a degauss coil available at a TV repair shop (cost aprox. $35.00) and you should have the circuit checked at the same time. A set will also become magnetized if a large speaker (magnet) or motor is close to the TV.

Tv comes on just the sound about three seconds later tv shuts off


I have the same issue with mine and have a solution that sometimes works. I had a repair guy come to check it out and he powered off the TV so that the red light was no longer blinking, then he unplugged the TV for about 30 seconds or so and then plugged it back in. He then turned on the TV and it worked. He said it would cost about $400 to fix the issue (some circuit or something). I have since expeerienced the on/off problem (due to power outage) and now I cannot get the TV to work. But at least give this solution a try and please post to let me know if it worked or not. Good luck!

No sound or picture now


The set may have shorted the horizontal out put transistor since it kept coming on sometimes. This could be cause by the driver transformer arcing causing a "spike" in voltage going to you horizoltal out put transistor. Stargazer

Hello Robert, the picture tube on your TV set is exausted. Please contact your nearest Authorized Sony Service for further help/advice. After all, Sony is a good choice. The next TV set you buy could be one of Sony-s Bravia LCD. Kind regards, Arpad
