Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS200 27" TV

1 Answer

Pincushion problem I replaced the flyback transformer on this TV. After starting it up, I now have a pincushion (E/W) that won't resolve itself. Picture has a consistent hourglass image and wider than normal )|( . Any thoughts on component replacement or could this be a cold solder joint issue? Thanks in advance.

    henlopen,
    The h-out transistor was replaced as well. Could an overvoltage issue damage the IC in the pincushion circuit?

My thoughts would be, was it a Sony OEM transformer or a generic type? If the latter, that is probably a likely suspect. Another thing would be misplaced wires or switches that could have been accidently moved while replacing the transformer. I have had some of these sets that had no high voltage, and all it turned out to be was a broken solder connection on one of the pins going to the flyback transformer. Usually, if the flyback is bad, the Horizontal output transistor would be also defective. It's also possible that in the process of removing the old flyback (fun job wasn't it?) you may have cracked one or more of the circuit traces in that area of the PC board.

My 26" 1997 Sharp T.V. model #25H-M60 turns off by itself and won't turn back part of the time.


First thing if you are able is to unplug set and remove rear cover (lay set face down on a padded surface).

entire main board should be able to be seen or released so it slides out--take a very careful look at flyback and rest of board for any cracked or bad solder connections.

One bad connection (age) can cause this.

My tv. proscan mod. ps50700 won`t turn on


The PS50700 uses the 195 series chassis. The most common cause of the set not starting up is a shorted flyback (high voltage) transformer. Sometimes a shorted flyback will also cause the horizontal output transistor to short too. These parts need to be tested and/or replaced by a tech familiar with the RCA 195 chassis.

check for cold solder joints around the flyback transformer and a open pico type fuse very close to it. they are rectangle in shape and ususually the one in the middle of the three is the culprit. The problem is in the pincushion circuit

This is usually an indication that the picture tube is starting to fail. A short term "cure" is to increase the screen voltage a bit. This is done by opening up the back and turning the screen control on the flyback transformer clockwise slightly. The flyback if the large part with the red wire coming out of the top that goes to the side of the picture tube. Please note that you only have to turn this control slightly. Ity should be the top control on the two on the flyback. The other is for focus. Also note that there is extremely high voltage there (15,000V) that can be dangerous. If turning up this control resolves the problem, you have bought yourself time to find a replacement only.

FLYBACK Transformer for APex 32'' Model #PF3230 Flat Part #BSC 70Y


Its not worth the repair if you still want to go ahead i need to know two things:
Are you going to have a qualified electronics technician fit it?
If you are planning to fit it yourself are you a qualified electronics technician?
If you answered no to both of these questions i cannot tell you where to get one or how to fit it due to the massive amounts of danger involved.

check the cap that couple the horizontal transistor, this could be bad replace the flyback.all caps and transistors in that circuit should be cheked.good luck.

Pincushion issue


Both transistors have built in damper diodes that are designed to work in "flyback" circuits, and the 2SD2645 is rated to handle 15 more watts and 2 amps more current than the 2SD2634, so I suspect the technican felt that the replacement part would be less likely to go bad. Of course if they subbed the transistor, could the flyback also be a substitute? Sometimes faulty capacitors in the collector circuit of the Horizontal output transistor can cause timing problems that also cause the transistor to fail. If that is the case, then further troubleshooting is required to find and replace said capacitor(s), and that could also be the root of your problem. There is also one other possibility I can think of (aha!) and that is that the 2SD2645 was a "off brand generic" that does not live up to its published specifications. With Sony products, I have learned (the hard way sometimes) that it is usually best to use only OEM parts.

No picture, sound ok.


When you change the flyback and the HOT you are supose to replace a small capacitor that came with the flyback and also the small coil l401 that connects the hot base to the horiz. driver transformer secondary is supose to be taken out, the leads scrapped off of insulation and resoldered into place.

Pincushion Picture


Lets try something before you call for a second opinion,with the tv ON and the problem showing hit the top and side of the tv,if the picture somehow reacts or corrects itself when you hit it call someone else and tell them what the problem is and that you feel it has a loose conection,dont have to tell them about the first estimate. Dont hit the tv with a hammer,just with the palm of your hand.Is worth the try. Good luck.
