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.  "

The manufacturer usually have a year warranty on their equipment. Look through your info and contact the company. Let them know that the audio decoder in the TV has failed and that you request further action on their part. Make sure you have your receipt handy. Oh, you did register it right? if not do that now with the info you have on when you bought it. (lots of times it doesn't matter if you register it late or not so-long as you have proof of purchase)

Hello, Cameras today are all rated as mega pixels. The higher the (MP) the more detailed a photo will be. Vivitars' higher end cameras are great, but their entry-level ones aren't. Sometimes when purchasing a budget camera, you may notice that the built in lcd (for preview) looks really grainy. This is because the manufacturer uses a cheap lcd display to keep the costs down. Now if the digital picture itself is grainy, then it's time to return that camera. I don't want to just blurt out a camera model to you because I do not know the age of your child and at what level of responsibility she has with fragile electronics. But generally speaking, Canon cameras are amongst the best. Whether it's an entry level model or a high-end model, these cameras are fantastic. Again, the image produced is rated by its MP.....anything over 3MP (which most cameras are currently) and you will be taking high quality shots. Honestly, I would look into Canon and pick one that is sleek and maybe her favorite color. You CANNOT go wrong with them, unless she breaks it. =) I bought one for my sister, one for my dad, and one for myself and am so happy with it. Sony has nice cameras too in this price range but did not have the same ergonomics features (to me). The best thing to do is stop by a BestBuy and play around with a few cameras. I hope you see what I mean when you hold a Canon in your hands. To be realistic, you should spend around $140-$200 max. I bought myself a Canon SD600 years ago, with I believe 6MP(which is pretty outdated) and I absolutely love it.
My advice to you is however cheap the camera, get her a Canon. =) Hope this helps.

Posted by klsh on Jun 16, 2008
I have a Hoover self-propelled Windtunnel, purchased 6-04. It gets light use. I have replaced the v belt 3 times, once under warranty, and it must be replaced again. It appears to be in very good condition, but is stretched too big. When I purchased 2 v belts a year ago, one was already too stretched, but when my Dad took it back, the salesman put it on another model and said it was fine (Dad never mentioned this to me). Is there a way to adjust the vacuum to hold the belt tighter? Do they really just stretch out like that normally? The flat belt has never been replaced and is in great condition.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It is a good idea to change your flat belt every 4 to 6 months as a rule and the V belts @ least once a year and always use the genuine Hoover belts, there are generic or replacement belts out there but they have a tendency to stretch faster then the genuine belts. What you mentioned is not unheard of and another tip is to store any extra belts in a Ziploc bags in the refrigerator. Feel free to contact your local vac dealer if you have questions or call Hoover factory and ask for tech support. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

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.
