Question about Sony KV-32S26 32" TV

2 Answers

Sony KV-32S26 My TV turns on & works perfectly only when it is cold. After a few seconds the picture fades away on the top, then TV turns black. If I try to turn it on again, red light just blinks. If I wait long enough, the TV may be back on, then the problem repeats. It seems there are some kinds of magnetic problems as if I move the TV around, the picture may stay on for a while. Sometime, it gets better if I tap the TV before the picture fades away. I believe it is a hot solder problem on the CRT driver, but I can't find it. Please advise.

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

Picture fades to black


Find the vertical IC and check for very small cracks on the solder joints of its pins and resolder (approx. 10 Pins). Also check in the same area for a 1 micro farad at 50 vdc capacitor that goes bad and replace it.

Power light blinks and no picture


No picture - screen is empty. Sound is ok
Check IC101 (BA7630F), if video signal comes to input (pin 1) but not present at output (pin 14) then replace this IC
No picture and sound, only a high pitch sound at switch on
Remove horizontal transistor and measure the resistance across any two pins. This value should be no less than 200ohms
Picture fades away few seconds after start-up till no picture. Sometimes no picture at all. Sometimes picture OK for longer. Sound unaffected.
Faulty joints on CRT pcb. Cracked solder joints at tube socket connections on CRT circuit board. Caused variable supply to CRT heaters. Resolder all socket pins to pcb.

SCREEN GOES BLACK AFTER 1 MINUTE


In electronics dust has nothing to do. cleaning will not solve your problem your problem is due to trouble in vertical section. mostly it is due to electrolytic capacitor in vertical section is defective.it is common problem. also check supply to vertical section. "THE SCREEN SHRINKS TOWARDS THE TOP OF THE SCREEN FOR A FEW SECONDS BEFORE THE PICTURE TURNS UPSIDEDOWN THEN TURNS BLACK." is called fold over. regards thanks
