I have a 1999 32" Sony KV-32S45. Picture comes

Hello, Sorry to hear you are having problems with your Sony TV. The problem you are describing is a pretty common one being the slow collapse of the vertical circuit. This tv is know for having bad solder connections and the picture tube developing an internal short. Luckily for you it is a problem with cold solder joints, and when you straightened up the components, you temporarily made a good connection. You need to get someone to re-solder any and all bad /cold solder joints especially around the vertical circuit area making sure no solder bridges are formed during the process. Make the tv is unplugged before starting to do the repairs!
Good Luck! Rich L.

Power goes off and red light blinks.... won't turn back on unless you unplug for awhile... then it will work for a bit and then shut off and blink red again. it blinks repeatedly...not three times, not...

There is some loose or bad solderings inside your TVs circuit board. It is in the horizontal section, otherwise known as horizontal sweep section. Due this fault, horizontal output transformer, otherwise known as Line Output Transformer [LOT] won't work properly. If LOT must work properly, its drive stage must also be ok. It is common for philips tvs that solderings on this section gets loose contacted. Most of the components in this section will heatup while working. Due to repeated heating and coolng will make the solder joints to get loose. It is very difficult to locate the exact loose point, because they are very minute to see with naked eyes.
Open your tv, and get the horizontal board, the board which LOT is fitted, turn it upside down and resloder all the suspected points by applying a little more solder, whthout shorting nearby solder points. You must have a concept of soldering in this process.
You can check whether the LOT is working, without opening your TV. Place your forearm just parellel to the face of the picture tube, at about one centimeter away from it, and switch on your tv with its front panel power switch. If LOT is working, extra high tension voltage will be present inside the picture tube, which will attract the hairs of your forearm. In your TVs case, this effect will be there for the first time, but it will dimnish atonce.
There will be no components to be replaced, do what I said earlier, with concentration. Ok

Tv turns off and on again by itself--safe way to repair at home?


The regulator is not involved in this problem if the regulator is the defect you cant turn on the tv, but the issue is theturns off without warning, and often turns back on again the switch is also a suspect for this problem, you know in this case we do not look for a one bad parts, maybe the Solder is cold solder, or maybe the tact switch, or some bad capacitor or change value resistor. ill re commend you to look for a qualified electronic technician to clearly diagnose for this problem...

Note.. as i read in this complaint the regulator is good and not to replace..

Panasonic GAOO TV

Do you have to tap on the left lower side (facing the T.V) are the lines thin and white?
Has the T.V. ever turned off by itself?

This set was made in Mexico and Panasonic have HAD problems with dirty solder joints, "dry solder joints" as thay are called, expand and "open" with heat and age. Thay can "fix themself's" when the set is allowed to cool down or if you tap the joint back together. That is untill the set gets hot again and the joint expands get the picture?
Try re soldering your power supply solder joints, you MUST desolder and clean joints!
Hope this helps, sorry about the delay never been on this site untill today!

if you can remove the screen you probably need to clean the mirror. if that is the case, don't use windex use a very mild solution of dish liquid (3-4 drops to the quart) then you will have to wash it several times with that. any harsher solution will remove the mirror surface. use a very soft , lint free cloth but not terry material. your bath room mirror has the "silver on the back side this one if it glass has the "silver on the front. if it is mylar don't press hard or it will streach and distort the pix. good luck

there is a broken conductor strip or broken solder joint on the circuit board near the power input jack. do this: 1.) disconnect tv and open panel to expose circuit board. 2.) using a flashlight and magnifying glass, look carefully for this broken solder strip or solder joint. Flex board slightly if necessary to aid in finding the break. 3.) repair it using solder iron and flux solder and scratch copper conductor slightly to aid in "wetting" the solder fix.

RCA F32649 32# TV Troubleshooting Forum

this is an old case and Im sure you have a new TV by now. The problem is the tuner. The grounds are cold and need to be re-heated. The tuner is the little box your cable plugs into. Open the back and you will see where it is soldered to the main board. Heat them back up with a little solder should be three points. while you are in there look around and see if you find more. if that doesnt work then you may have to take the case of the tuner off and look inside for more cold solder joints
