Question about Sony KV-35S42 35" TV

1 Answer

HELP! Our Sony TV started taking longer and longer to warm up for the screen to come on. At first, it took longer and longer but it came on and worked fine, the picture was great. Over time not only is it taking longer to warm up for thepicture to come on but the screen has also begun to flash while watching it. It's get worse and worse, to where you can't watch a program on it. I talked to a service tech and he said it could be the picture tube. Is there anything that you know of that we can do at home to fix this problem or is it a service issue for sure? Could it be something besides the pic tube and worth fixing?

Sony pfm-42x1 flickering screen when turning tv on


OKAY I found the Problem!! Bad Caps Compositors. I Proved this in 2 ways. First I took off the Back(always make sure the TV is UNPLUG) In the photo above I put my finger on the capacitors. I found some that where NOT FLAT ON TOP(You can kinda see in the photo too). I could feel a little nipple on top.(Some times you can see if their busted open but not in this case) so I felt them and the bottom right and top left area in red in the photo where not flat. I took my dryer(My wife really) and warmed them up for about 2 minuets each then another minuet rotating back then forth. I leaned the t.v. up to lean on the frame and plug it in. I continued warming the capacitors up and in about 2 Min the T.V. has stop blinking. Much better then the 20-30 min. So the hunt for the Capacitors is on. It will be some work to get the boards out. If everything is done delicately The Soldor job is easy for me. I am going to buy the 8 but replace 1 board at a time until the TV works and put the other on the side for next time or put them up on E-bay. I hope this helped Please like if this helped you. ea0a96a3-fb82-4ec0-89f4-76b4080e9c6e.jpg 1b190ebd-5d69-4553-a009-840d29ab4c87.jpg ab9b51d0-6e1d-4cce-b822-e80d0fde9163.jpg

My sony xbr5 flickers until warmed up


brennanrp, I hope you purchased a warranty on your TV. My 46 in xbr-5 was doing the same thing. I called the store I bought it from and they took it to a repair shop. The panel inside, basically the inner workings are faulty and Sony has put an extended warranty on it. Get it looked at as it will only get worse. Soon you will probably be seeing some vapor like images across the screen if you have not already. the lines starting showing up even after extended viewing times.

TV Model # C27A24T about nine or ten years old. TV


Bad grounds and bad caps will cause the problems in this tv. You will need to replace several caps and resolder the tuner itself and that means taking the tuner out in some cases and rework it. This is very time consuming and needs great care not to destroy the tuner. And reinstall the tuner to the board. You need the cap check to locate bad caps and visual to see bad grounds on any Ic on heatsinks. If you are a do it yourselfer fine.. If you cannot do this I would just replace the tv.

Screen flashing


I finally hoisted the TV off the wall and took it to the shop because this TV never "warmed up" such that the flashing went away. $400 later and with some board replaced... we're back in business.

Color flickers on and off


I went to the Sony support page for your model.(link below)http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=KP61V85&LOC=3
They are undergoing maintenance right now, so I couldn't find any answers for you. I would check back with the website to see if they can help you. If the Standby timer light flashes, you may need to have the TV repaired. There is a "Hot Topics" section for "How to troubleshoot television picture issues" that will probably be very helpful to you.

Delay to see the picture


Your power supply is going south, I have an old sony with the same problem. The voltage level drops and does not have enough 'kick' to start. It will work better when it is warm. The module will need to be replaced.

Screen tuens blue them tv turns off


NOT GOOD NEWS... IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR BLUE CRT IS SHORTED. THE ORIGINAL PART IS N.L.A.(NO LONGER AVAILABLE) THEY DO MAKE A GENERIC REPLACEMENT, BUT I DON'T THINK THEY ARE AS GOOD AS O.E.M.
YOU CAN TAKE OFF FRONT OF T.V. AND ADJUST THE SCREEN DOWN ON THE FOCUS BLOCK. IT IS THE BLACK BOX WITH 6 ADJ. ON IT 3 ARE FOCUS. 3 ARE SCREEN . TURN THE BLUE ALL THE WAY DOWN , THEN WITH THE BACK OF A PLASTIC OR RUBBER SCREWDRIVER HANDEL YOU CAN TAP ON THE NECK OF THE CRT, NOT TO HARD. SOME TIMES YOU CAN CLEAR THE SHORT OUT OF THE CTR. IF THIS WORKS LET THE SET WARM UP FOR 10-20 MIN. THEN TURN THE COLOR ALL THE WAR OFF, THEN SET THE BLUE LEVER UNTIL YOU HAVE A GOOD BLACK AND WHITE PICTURE. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TURN IT UP YOU CAN DAMAGE THE CTR IF THE LEVEL IS TO HIGH. ERROR 8 IS A.K.B. ERROR THAT MEANS THE CRT'S ARE DRAWING TO MUCH CURRENT.

Sony Gurus! My set has sound, screen takes long to come on.


I will suggest you put the screen control back to where it was,the unit has a lot of loose conections in the power supply,horizontal driver transformer and possibly crt board,if you keep using it like this it will go dead completly and the repair will be more expensive,be safe and call a person who is qualified and get an estimate.
