Couple months ago. My SONY TV model KP46S25 takes 2, 4, 5 minutes to show image. Sometime, I have to turn it ON & OFF very fast before the image appear. Gradually, with deterioration, it takes more than hours to show a picture. I am sure that this is not unusual problem. Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: No image but good quality speaker.
Sony has had a problem in older sets with-believe it or not- lack of humidity. I had one with the same problem. If it is under warentee take it back, if not-I know it sounds insane- put a large plastic garbage bag over the turned off set. Leave it that way for a couple of days. do not turn it on during this time. After a couple of days remove the bag and turn it on. If it works-that's the problem, if it doesn't- it's dying, and to expensive to fix. Surprised the heck outta' me when I tried it on my old Sony 19" set- it worked.

Speaking as a retired SONY dealer, the short answer is probably yes. There are some repairs an authorized SONY repair center can do but if the tube is displaying a soft picture, it may not be wise to spend a couple hundred on repairs when a new medium quality TV is three hundred to five hundred for a SONY. I applaud your devotion to a set that has served you well.
you might try checking the sap (secondary audio programming) option in your tv if it has one make sure it is turned off. if it is off or does not have that option you will most likely have to take it to a repair shop. i would not try to fix it my self as you will do more harm than good.
Most likely your Cathode Ray Tube or CRT is going bad. That model number reflects an older TV. What you are describing is a fairly common problem for that television. If you bump the TV and it improves or gets worse then you know there may be a short.. Either way, I would recommend that you use our Premium Service or use our online resources to find a repair person near you. Good luck.
Could be a weak Picture tube . You can try turning up the screen control but don't turn it up too much you'll get retrace lines in the picture . Turn it alittle at time until picture comes on then turn it down until the retrace lines go away . Then try turning the tv on and off to make sure it comes back on. Be careful you can get shocked if you do this while it is on and you touch one of the circuits . The control is on the flyback or the module thats on the picture tube it will say screen by it . If this does not work you could have vidoe problems or just the picture is no good . Good luck
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.
Hard one to call as I have not seen the newer sony chassis yet BUT it sound like to me a fault in the PIP section if there is one or the crt driver circuit or even in the video jungle IC. It is only three months old so call the store where you got it as there should be a warrantee on the set.Good Luck
