Sony Trinitron model # KV-27HFR- the picture is fading, is there a way i can fix that?


From your descrition the problem is the picture tube, over a period of time the guns build up crud reducing the emission on the front screen which in turn causes fading and progressively gets worse until viewing becomes impossible. One possible solution is to have the picture tube rejuvinated by a tv tech to buy more time out of the set, but the improvement may last a few days to several months or more.

I have a 6 year old(nov 04) Sony KV-30HS420 that turns off all by itself. The screen goes to green and the picture fades to black. The sound will keep playing for a few seconds then the TV will turn itself...


If the screen goes rather bright green it is one of two things:

1. It is possible it is a shorted green gun in the picture tube, there are three of them, red, green and blue guns in neck of the tube.

2. The other possible reason is there is a problem on the small circuit board at the end of the picture tube, this model should use three IC chips, one for each red, green and blue.

Being intermittent makes it hard to tell but ask the shop if they tried the self check this set should have. With the set turned off use the original Sony remote and hit Display, 5, vol down, and power.

If the set has a self check (it should) a box will appear on the screen with up to five items with a zero to the right of each, items will be like AKB, OVP, etc, and if any have something other than a zero to the right it pinpoints what happened.

Sets with this feature record each event where something goes wrong, ANYTHING other than a 0 indicates what failure was detected.

If I was to make a guess there will be a number next to AKB, which is Anti-Kine Bias, this means the picture tube or something on the board at the end of it drew too much current and the set's shut down circuit turned the set off.

I actually fixed one of these where both the blue and red IC chips on that board were bad, needless to say, I replaced all three of them.

Any good shop would know about the self check and even if the set did not shut down in the shop the self check would point to the area where the problem is.

Let me know if you need more help or find a error code.

TV picture fades, then shuts off


There are some components in the scan amplifiers, and or the power supply area that have become unstable. This can happen with age and use. It is impossible to make an accurate assessment without actually troubleshooting the set.

You need an experienced TV service tech that is strong on troubleshooting, has the service manuals, and has the proper set-up to work on your set. I would recommend the factory service rather than an independent service tech unless you know for sure that the independent service tech can handle this type of repair.

Considering the age of the model of set that you have, I would be looking at replacing it rather than fixing it. Because of the age of the set the reliability will be decreased.

Sony KV-30HS420 turns off all by itself


This is less a solution than a work-around, but it does work for me, and it is free or low-cost.

I have had the same problem on the same Sony (model KV-30HS420),picture fading out to green then black, then turning off by itself,after which sometimes the light blinks 6 times, other times it blinks 7times. This started about four years after I bought it, which is not adecent lifetime for a CRT TV. It would happen anytime from 2 or 3 timesan hour to 30 to 40 times an hour. After getting absolutely nowherewith Sony, which was completely unresponsive and unhelpful, and which refusedto stand by their product or provide any useful information, I wasgetting ready to buy a new LCD TV, any brand but Sony (never buyanything from them again), when on a whim I decided to try one last stopgap solution.

I put a fan up against the side of the TV, blowing into the vents. Ithas been 3 days now, and not once has the fading and shutting downoccurred. So it looks like the fading out and shutting down wassomehow related to heat, and the ventilation seems to have solved it. I don't know why it should be a problem now, when it was not the first fewyears. It is also a mystery why Sony has not been able to figure thisout, since it is clear from online postings that many people have thisproblem with this model. Give this a try and see if it solves theproblem for you.

LOL No BP its not a hot solder problem . Your problem with this model is called a cold solder connection, and is very common! Its location is a secret. HE HE just kidding!! Had ya going didnt I?? LOL Ok its the primary as well as the secondary connections on the Horizontal DRIVER transformer AND/ or the little coil right next to the transformer. It needs to be resoldered BUT should be donr by a quilified service tech as theres alot of Hi voltage inside these sets and is not a place for a handi-person to be tinkering around in. Its no biggie to have a tech do the job right the first time .. Good Luck
