Question about Sony KV-27V22 TV

Picture-in-picture won't go away

After owning the TV for 5 years and moving cross-country, all of a sudden the picture-in-picture screen shows up in the bottom right section of the TV. We have never used that feature and, in the course of moving, we lost the original remote. We've tried several ways of fixing the problem and nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

    Mattozan,
    Thank you for your prompt reply. The picture-in-picture box remains on the screen when I am using the DVD player as well as for the TV signal.

The screen is on both for TV reception and when we are in DVD mode. We have never used that feature and, in the course of moving, we lost the original remote.

    Using the menu, and navigating the channel option, I was able to finally get rid of the Picture-in-picture.

There should be a menu button the tv, press it and navigate using the vol+ / - and ch + / - muttons, look in the menu for vide setup and picture in picture, just disable picture in picture mode.,, You can get anoter remote by contacting the manufacture of the tv and asking them for one, they will ship it for you

Does this happen with TV signal only, or with other inputs as well?

The tv is at least 17 years old.The blinking red light blinks 5 times ,then the tv picture goes off . The voice is still on


Five blinks is the error code for an AKB (auto kine bias) error. What this means is that the set isn't able to balance the three color guns (red, green and blue) of the picture tube properly, and it's blanking out the screen.

To get the proper colors, the signals for the three colors need to be balanced, and Sony sets have circuitry to do this automatically. Other brands don't, and when they go out of balance you see a picture that starts to show tinting or colors that are off. As the picture tube ages, it gets harder to adjust the balance until finally the AKB circuit can't anymore, and poof, the picture goes away. With a 17-year-old tube, it's not surprising.

There isn't anything that can be done to fix the picture tube, it would need to be replaced. But the cost of the tube and the work required to get it set up after installation makes it completely uneconomical to repair this TV. A new picture tube is nearly $200. Then special tools are required to set the tube up (a process called convergence), so you'd need to find someone to put it in, and possibly pay to have the old one disposed of. A new 32-inch LCD set is around $350 now. Treat yourself to a new one.

Have enjoyed my KD-34XS955 for the past 5 years.


Maybe the degaussing coil is moved backward from the picture tube.

I have a toshiba 32 inch 1997 tv. When I turn32G90 it


It sounds like the picture tube may be weak (because it's orange) but it going to half ascreen is not caused by the picture tube but likely a vertical circuit problem. If this problem happened suddenly (going orange) then the picture tube is probably good and at least worth bringing in for an estimate.

Oversized picture problem


Several possibilities, if you use a set top box to get your signal like a cable box or satellite receiver they will have settings that effect picture size. It could be a high voltage problem inside the TV causing an effect called blooming, if that is it you can usually change brightness and or contrast and see the picture get smaller and larger. I don't recall that set having any customer settings that could give that symptom.

Unknown model of panasonic tv problem with picture


Depending on age, it sounds as if picture tube has an intermintent short in the red gun. tap on the center of the screen to see if it goes away, if it does,I would strongly say that the tube is gone; but you could try openning it and check if the crt board is mounted on the tube's neck properly. do this at your own risk since you might get a shock if not familiar on how to handle tv's.

It sure sounds like you have a classic case of bad solder joints. Resolder all the connections on all boards.
