Question about Sylvania SST4322 32" TV

1 Answer

Picture smear and screen brighter on the right hand side

The TV has a bad picture, text on the screen smears and the picture as a whole has a lack of contrast and is over bright. If you select AV with no signal the right half(ish) of the screen gets brighter the further right you go. It is noticeable that the smeared text gets worse on the right of the screen. I suspect a capacitor somewhere, I do not think it?s the tube as the text would smear fairly evenly across the screen, I must admit it?s been over twenty years since I used to fix TV?s and I did that only when the TV guys were over run. So I might be wrong.

If you know how to read a service manus then what you are looking for is a possible bad cap on the 200v source feeding the video output collectors or video output IC. That is the first suspect.

Lcd tv white screen

OK. Great idea to try another monitor! What you forgot was to tell us the make and model. Also we need the make and model of what you're connecting the monitor to.
That said, it could be the cable and connectors: are you using an adapter to match up with a specific connector?
It could be a resolution setting on the monitor or on the video card. Both have menus for adjusting the input signals.

The sound you heard came from one of the IC's under the heat sinks. Check the fuses on the left and right print, the print with the broken fuse must be replaced.

Green Smear

It sounds like your optical block has failed. If you can see the picture but it has a green smear through the picture, this is likely the problem. Sony has extended the warranty on the optical block and is covering parts and labor for the repair. Contact Sony at 800-222-SONY to schedule a tech to look at the TV and replace the optical block
