Question about Sony KV-32FS13 TV

1 Answer

Sony kv35s26 TV: no picture, audio works, stanby light blinks.

I have a Sony Trinitron kv35s26 (made August 1997) and recently the picture went out. When the TV is powered on, I have audio, no video, and the red standby light located on the front of the TV blinks on & off. I can change channels and the audio changes.

Have you heard of this problem before? I’m pretty handy with a multi-meter if there are test points to check to determine the problem. Do you know where I can get a schematic of the TV?

Thanks, Jim

    The red light continuously blinks, I don't see a pattern.

    The TV has been unplugged for over 24 hours. I removed the back cover and noticed the circuit card attached to the end of the picture tube was loose and half way falling off. The picture attached is similar to what my TV has, so I pushed the white (circled in black) connect into place and the TV picture came on for about 5 seconds and when blank again. I still have audio and the red standby light blinks continuously. I’m not sure if I bumped the card when I was removing the back cover.

    I located the screen control and turned it clockwise, no picture appeared.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks, Jim

    I have the same problem with my 11 year old Sony kv35s26. no picture, audio works, standby light blinks for a while. Picture will show up when I first turn it on, then after 30-60 seconds, lines across the screen then very quickly no picture. Sony 800 number asked me to adjust the "menu" but I can't see the menu. They thought it could be the picture tube. Should I move on and get something new?

First a couple of questions:

1) Does the standby light blink continuously or is there a repeating pattern?

2) If there is a pattern, can you please post the blink count?

With the above information, I should be able to provide you with a couple of possibilities as well as a few tests to perform. Please update this and we'll continue to try and resolve this.

    OK. That helps too!!

    If you are comfortable working inside the set, try the following:

    Open up the back and turn on the set. You will see in the lower right hand side (when viewed from the back) a large part with a red wire coming out the top. That is the flyback transformer. There are 33,000 Volts there so be careful. That part should have 2 controls facing you. The top one should be embossed screen and the other Focus. (I may have these backwards but they are both marked). Turn the Screen control slightly clockwise (as viewed from the back). Does the picture appear? If so, then the picture tube is starting to fail and by turning up the screen, you will have time to find a replacement. If that does not help, update this and I will look up the model in the meantime for other ideas.

1999 Sony Trinitron TV. We have sound but no picture. Stanby light is flashing?

How many times does the light blink. It should blink a code 1-8 blinks pause a second then blink the code again. Count the blinks then let me know. If it just blinks constantly without pausing. let me know that as well.
