Question about Televison & Video

My sony 27" wega (8 yrs old) just died. the standby light blinks, but not in any pattern. The picture is green/yellow with about 15 horizontal lines on a 30 degree slant. Should I replace the screen or power supply, or should I just get a new tv?

The lines you see on the screen are called retrace lines and are cause by the absence of 200VDC that power up sections of the CRT.
This type of repair might not be a DIY due to the number of measurements to pin point the defective part(s) and the high voltages around the circuitry. There could be a fuse resistor that is connected from the flyback transformer to the CRT that is open, if that is the case you could also have a video amplifier IC shorted.
Good Luck.

Sony wega kdl-l32mrx1 10 yrs old. picture wont come on display standby light goes green then a crackling sound from the back of the tv, the standby light then goes red again, and flashes 6 times have


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

I have a 10 yr old Sony FD Trinitron WEGA 32" Flat


Hello jorge and welcome to FixYa. With your particular model of television six blinks mean a Horizontal Drive Failure has occurred. If you have any television repair experience you could try checking the jungle for loose or possibly bad soldering. In some case the jungle IC was found to be defective on this model as well. You should also inspect the horizontal drive transformer windings if at all possible. If you are unable to repair this yourself I would personally say to you no it is not worth the cost to repair it as purchasing a new television would probaly be a more prudent decision. I hope you found this helpful and thank you for visiting FixYa.

I have a Sony Trinitron 32 color tv KV 2168MTJ (quite old - 10 yrs old), and the standby light blinks exactly 200 times (just over 3 mins) before it turns on. Once it is on, it works perfectly. What's...


A poor solder connection on B+ is the line, Horizontal drive transformer or at the base of Horizontal Output transistor can caused that. Re-soldering these section can fix it..

Sony Vega Service Codes


KV-32HS510 and KV-27HS420, seven times blink error code shows problem in Horizontal deflection circuit.

There are many possibilities like dry solder joints, weak capacitors, Horizontal transistor short or flyback transformer fried etc.

If you have little experience of TV repair and good solder skills and have necessary tools to test / check defective parts, then you can make it. you also need to have related service manual to see board location, schematics and part numbers.
