Question about Sony KV-35S45 35" TV

Open Question

KV-36hs20 My Dad bought a KV-36HS20 about 4-5 years ago from Audio King. He purchased cheap from them because it was returned(I know, big misktake). Ever since he purchased the TV, there would be a pop or crack sound followed by a green horizontal line flashing across the screen. The flash occurs more frequently the longer the TV is on. It disappears after a second.

You likely have bad solder connections around the tuner area. This model has a history of problems in that area or the tuner itself.

SEVEN Blinks---High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.

I have this set also..
When you set up for an HD signal (1080i) it is broadcast in 16:9 which is a widescreen format. The Sony set is a 4:3 format (more of a square shape) which means the black bars at the top and bottom appear so that you get the widescreen 16:9 format to appear.

This is one of the main negatives I have about this set, however, I can't really complain as I have had it for 6 years and it works great.

I never knew about the other format until I got an HD receiver from my satellite dish provider last year.
Hope that helps explain it for you..

Have you tried disabling SVM (scan velocity modulation)? Often touted as a "feature" of TVs, it's a way of artificially making a picture appear sharp. Totally unnecessary. When SVM (sometimes called VM) is on, it can lead to some color bleeding around edges.

Have just posted this - twice, elsewhere - I'm afraid the sets are getting old:
"I think you are either suffering from a failed power supply or the supply is cycling because of a 'downstream' problem that could be in the high voltage circuit. In each case, the blink count probably would tell you approximately where the problem is located but only a Sony tech will have access to the codes. After all, we are only mortals.  "

Picture Shaking

Do you have any big speakers or some other appliance near the TV?

Magnetic fields make the screen images 'shake'.

Hyundai 42 inch plasma tv

Mine's out, too. Red Horizontal bars Left and Right, picture goes in and out(meaning fuzzy-no picture) on Left half and the TV tuner is gone, I can play DVD with half of a screen most of the time, occasionally the whole screen.

I should have returned my "returnable model" three years ago when I noticed Wal-Mart was NOT accepting returns when purchased after a certain date (I had purchased just before that date) Big, Big, OOPS!!

Repair estimate starts at $800, not guaranteed, and that does NOT include repairing the TV tuner. Ouch, Ouch, Ouch.

I see Hyundai stopped selling these units... anyone in the Chicago area that wants it for parts, let me know.
