Delayed picture My Sony KV-27S35 has developed a problem with the picture. It used to take a second or two to come on. It has taken progressively longer to come on until now it takes almost two hours before the picture comes on. The standby/stereo button flashes the whole time and becomes solid once I have a picture. The volume comes on right away though. Any ideas what is causing this and how to fix? Thanks!!

Sony designed many of their sets with auto kine bias shutdown circuits its techno babble for a circuit that protects the tube from being burned if not setup right that particular chassis has achieved enuf hours on the crt to give you led blinks and no raster if you find that turning down the screen control on the flyback restores raster then the tube is going weak ala the previous poster blasting the tube is an art that requires color balancing without taking too much remaining gain off of the anodes in the tube neck if thats too complicated buy a new one

If this set is more than 5 years old, I would suspect a weak picture tube to be the cause of the symptoms you're experiencing. Sony uses a Cathode current monitoring circuit in their TV's to keep the CRT from displaying a poor quality picture, so if the current is not up to snuff, it kills the video to the tube keeping it off. Another cause could be a bad solder connection, but you would probably be able to make the picture go off and on by slapping the set if that was the problem. If it is the picture tube (CRT) that is the cause of the problem, it may be able to be restored by a CRT tester/rejuvinator (over a thousand dollars to buy new if you don't own one) or by slightly adjusting the screen control that should be located on the CRT drive board. As there is about 300 Volts DC near that control, you may want to take the set to a shop for a safer repair. Either repair is only a temporary fix. It may last another year, and by then you'll be ready for a HDTV set.

Sony KV-32FS12 Component Video 4 Has A Wavy Picture

sounds to me like the differnence between watchiing in progressive and interlace. these older tube tv's are not capable of displaying a progressive scanned image. like the first dvd players. check your video out settings on your ipod to make sure its an interlace output.

Sony Trinitron Color TV KV-35V65 - No Picture, red light stand/by timer flashing

A reset won't fix this. The standby light should be blinking a repeated count with a 3 second pause inbetween. Post that count here. That will indicate the circuit/condition that is preventing the set from turning on.

Thanks,
Dan

Press and hold for a few Seconds the 2nd Button from the left on the front of the TV. The auto tune menu will appear on the bottom right of the screen. Wait until it disappears and then check the channels by using the buttons on the remote.

Sony KV-24FV12 Image intermittant Blackout

Hello Robert, the picture tube on your TV set is exausted. Please contact your nearest Authorized Sony Service for further help/advice. After all, Sony is a good choice. The next TV set you buy could be one of Sony-s Bravia LCD. Kind regards, Arpad

Split screen from DVD player, cable is fine no problem

It is not clear where you say input is from cable, do you mean the Scart input to your Sony TV? Do not use Progressive scan(p), as this is not interlaced. The normal TV requires an interlaced(i) picture of 50 half frames per second giving 25 complete pictures per second to reduce flicker. Some TVs and projectors and all monitors accept Progressive scan.
