Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS510 36" TV

1 Answer

KP-57WS500 My tv is turning off a few seconds after is turned on. The image is blur at the beginning untill it fades out totally and becomes black, remaining the sound. At the same time the red light on the front on the tv blinks all the time till tv goes off. Thanks for the help, Luiz Aramis Brazil TV TURNS OFF RIGHT AFTER IT IS TURNED ON. hOWEVER IF THE TV IS OFF OR LEFT UNPLUGGED FOR 3 - 4 DAYS, AND THEN TURNED BACK ON, THE TV WILL WORK. TV HOWEVER WILL NOT WTUN ON AGAIN IF IT IS TURNED OFF AND TURN BACK ON ON THE SAME DAY.

    Thanks for the advise.

    A friend of mine advised me to open the TV, blow off the dust with air cannister you use to clean the computers, and at the same time lightly vacum the inside of the TV circuits taking care not to disturb wiring placement and being careful, it being high voltage. He said those dust particles sometimes create statics thereby influencing current flow and causing those problems.

    So that I did, and my TV now works.

    Thanks for the other advise though.

    I am having exactly the same problem as Clancefn's. I have not taken any steps to rectify the problem. My question to clancefn's if he did any thing other than the air spray? CLG

The fault can be the high voltage multiplier, and or the main power supply, and or the CRT emission is very weak. It is possible to have faults in all these areas at the same time. As the TV ages and with use, various parts will wear out.

The cost to service this is usually fairly expensive. I would be seriously looking for a new TV set. You can take the set in for an extimate just to see what it will cost.

Picture comes on then fades to blue

Check the info from this website to see if you are able to fix your TV. You should turn the blue screen control down slightly counterclockwise. If that did not work, then more likely you have a video amplifier IC defective or a blue CRT.

I had this problem and at the same time I was getting blue tint. When the blue got darker, this would happen, Adjusted the voltage on the guns (3 screws in the front - lower panel off) and the blue went away and it stopped turning off. But later, it would start all over again. Same procedure, same fix.

Red CRT is doing short circuit in the neck. You can try to open the front panel and to hit easy the neck with wood or something and to decrease the red screen a bit. If doesn't work then replace the CRT.
