It sounds like two possible problems first power supply has over heated causing solder joint to come loose on printed curcuit board, or secondly,there is i black transformer at rear of tv,with wire that connects to the back of tube, this can sometimes fail ,you can try and reconect this but would advise not to do this yourself,as tvs hold high voltage charge for many years , and could result in death.you could take the tv to repair shop and tell them you know the problem,if they think you know what might be the problem, the may not rip you off hope this helps,,,


ps please be care full tvs can kill

Since I can't see your screen, I'll guess.

If the picture shrinks away in the vertical, fast or slow, it is in the vertical control circuit.

If the whole picture shrinks in both axes simultaneously, the high voltage circuit is the culprit.
This section is responsible for producing the accelerating voltage for the beam so if it is dropping out (quite common after years of use) there will be nothing to speed the beam to the phosphor to produce light.

Turn up the intensity when the picture drops out to see if you have any trace of light.
If not, it is the latter problem.

If you can still see a horizontal line that flickers a little (from video content) then it is the first problem described.

IF the flyback (HV) transformer is still available, it will cost somewhere between $25-$100 US (many lower cost sources have disappeared) plus labor.
Depending on whether the fault was the flyback or the high power transistor that drives it, there could be additional parts needed.

Since you indicated that it operates OK for a while, it could also be something as primitive as a failed solder joint and these can be tough to find (=$$ labor).

Hello, My elderly Mom has a Trinitron KV-32S10 tv and the stand-by light is continuously blinking and there is no picture, but there is sound. I have unplugged the tv and waited 2 minutes and plugged back...


The blinking light is the fault code to enable the engineer to have a good guess at where the fault area lies.
Count the blinks and tell a Sony repair shop, they will have a good idea of the cost.
Hope that helps.

No picture-rumbling sound


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.

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,


It may be worth getting fixed up. If you decide to do so, call around, as shops have different rates and different expertise.

Hope that helps!

Closed captioning used to work. Disconnected TV to do some remodeling, now it doesn't show caption info. Tried selecting different menu options, i.e. CC1, CC2, etc. No luck. My TV is a Sony Wega...


You need to use a remote control to fix this one. There are options, and some say different things. but there is always a seperate button for Closed Captioning on TV's.

Picture Problem


Your TV's tuner is the problem. 1st thing to try is just to sesolder its connections to the main circuit board. If that doesn't work replace the tuner. Also could put a meter on the power coming into the tuner and see if it is drooping in sync with your picture. Tuners are not that expensive to replace.

Channnel keeps flicking like your changing channels with remote


when you say flickering??? are you saying the screen goes black and comes back on?? does the sound go out at the same time and comes bag on with the pic ? Is the sound there when this happens but is distorted. Is the pic blacked out or is it greying out with lines and twisting?? Need more info please as if its blacking out and the sound goes with it it may be going into shutdown. If the pic is getting kinda greyish with it twisting and the sound is there and ditorted then the tuner could be bad
