Question about Sony KDS-60A3000 60" HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Sony KDS60a3000. About 3 yrs. old. Was fine but now when I turn it on I get sound, but the picture is a pattern of different color vertical lines over full screen. It looks like a test pattern, reminds me of crappy wallpaper. If I got to setup screen, it looks normal. This doesn't sound like an OB problem. No blinking red lights.

JVC picture turns into a single line in middle of screen.


This is caused due to random falure of vertical scan circuits. It generally is caused by dried out capacitors or bad driver IC. Unfortunately it will get worse. If you fail to turn the TV off quickly you will burn a permenant horizontal line on the tube. Trip to the repair shop I am afraid.

Vhs SP tapes


It sounds like the tapes may be physically damaged, wrinkled or creased. This may have been done when they were played in whatever machine you used 5 years ago. Tapes can also be damaged in storage by heat or humidity. Tapes should also be stored on end in their boxes, not flat. If these tapes were stored flat, the bottom edge might have gotten wrinkled. This can damage the control track and cause playback issues.

Color problem with Sony Grand WEGA 42WE655


Hello,

Well, there probably isn't any relation between the two problems occuring exept for the timing. Magnetism won't affect a rear projection LCD.

I would say that your description is a bit odd, though. Usually on this model, there is a blue blob that shows up, eventually turning into a blue haze, and a star pattern of stuck pixels. It almost sounds like you have a bad set of component cables. On the SXRD's, they usually turn green.

Does it do it on all inputs (including the channels)? If it does, then it is the optical block. If it does not, then I would suspect that it is cable-related. If it is the optical block, then there is no way that any input can be different from the others (except for digital/analog differences, but those are usually obvious with patterns vertically on the screen).

If it does not look the same on all inputs or channels, change out whatever cables you are using. A loss of the red or blue cable in a component can give the symptoms you describe.

I hope this helps you...
