Question about Sony KV-32S40 32" TV

3 Answers

Sony KV-32S40 It has no power, then I replaced the regulator IC MXO841, the horiaontal transistor and one resistor 0.01ohm. ( I,m sorry I don't heve the location numbers now ) Now it is ready to be tested then I pluged the outlet and I pushed the power button. Burned again. ???????? I have others Sony Tvs model: KV-32S25,I replaced the C4927 horizontal tr, R 607 - 0.01ohm 1/2w and 2 transistor C4834 regulator, and when I plug it en turn on, it work for minuts and burned again. I never found solution for these problems. If someone know please help me. Thank you

    I'm working in my Sony KV-32S40, for replaced these parts: IC601 - MX0841, R607 - 0.01hom and Q502 - C5148 horizontal output transistor. Wen I plug it and I pushed powwer button to turning it on, destroyed again.

When the horizontal output (2SC4927) is shorted it means one of 2 things is wrong - the horizontal drive transformer has cracked solder joints or the flyback transformer is shorted inside. If the solder joints on the horizontal drive transformer (the small grey transformer connected to the base of the horizontal output transistor) are cracked then the set will play for a little while and then the parts you just replaced will again be destroyed. ALWAYS resolder the driver transformer when replacing the parts you mentioned! When I replace the parts you mention and I do not see any obvious cracks on the driver transformer then I unsolder the B+ pin of the flyback (labeled 135, for 135 volts) and put a 60 to 100 watt lightbulb (drop-light) in series with the flyback. This means that the 135 volts B+ goes through the lightbulb and then into the flyback, so the lightbulb acts as a current limiter to protect the horizontal output. When you turn the set on the bulb should glow no more than about half bright and you should hear the high voltage come up, but you should not see a picture. If you turn the set on and the bulb glows as bright as if it was plugged into the wall then you can bet that flyback is shorted and must be replaced.

Hi there, Lou from crown tv in deerfield beach fl. I see these all the time. When you expirence this problem after you replace the IC 601 , or Q601 & Q602 in other sets also check the Horizontal output transistor if shorted replace and solder the horizontal drive transformer and all the connections in the path from the transformer to the horizontal output, including the output itself, open base connections can cause the transistor to fail, then change the cap just off of the driver transformer it is 0.47 mfd @ 50 volts [i use a 100 volt part for longevity]. if the the IC [or transistors] keep blowing, try T601, it will be shorted. The flyback is another culprit but i dont see that one too ofted. one last thing to look for is a reduced value filter cap on the +17 and/or +22 volt supply. i know this is long winded but covers about 99.5% of this type of failure. hope this helps you and anyone else out.

Check the horizontal driver and the caps related to it,i`m sure the problem is in a crack solder jints or in a pin of a caps.the problem is in a loose pin!

I have a sony kv-36hs20 that will not turn on it just clicks and the power lite flashes about three different codes i think thats what that means i worked in a tv shop yrs back and have a little experence

hello!since you have an experience in repair,try to have a voltage data on the circuits of your tv..check whether there is a supply output from the plyback secondary,does the heater of the picture tube is lit?if yes your plyback is working fine,,if not,check the horizontal output transistor for any leak,open or it same to the regulator.if these two transistor is bad replace them..check also for any leak capacitors on your horizontal section.there might be a problem in there..same with the capacitors on the power supply section.If The plyback transformer is not switching replace the jungle ic.this ic generates the horizontal pulse to the plyback..good luck hope i helped you..

please rate my help.

Help me to resolve the problem

The problem of resistor of keep blowing caused by surge voltage,look for capacitor associated that resistor.The capacitor hold the voltage and distribute the exact volatage to that resistor if that capacitor is shorted or leaky,that is the caused of abnormal distribution. Also check the diode there and transistor.What is the number of IC driver you replaced,and do you have already schematic diagram?If not,i help you to give a links where you can avail.

Hope it may help you;

TV - worth fixing or pitch?

Horizontal output and regulator transistor often short out on this model causing a dead condition. Also the resistor right next to the regulators goes open as well. has a sony repair kit to fix the power supply. You just have to check the numbers on your Horizontal output transistor to make sure you get the right kit for your model.

Check Horiz. output transistor = shorted?
1)replace with first quality transistor
2)solder horiz driver circuitry
3)replace shorted converter transistors (2SC4834)
4)Replace open R607 .1 ohm 1/2 w.fusible (resistor ok)

Sony KV-32S40 32" TV problem

intermittent problems can usuall be liked to bad solder connections. And sony typically has some that will develop after a few years in the power supply. so check for bad sodler connections throught the main board & give a close look to the power supply & check you work after to make sure you have no shorted pins. good luck.

this problem would be in your power spply or the sweep derived power supply. probably a bad capacitor or regulator IC/transistor. Unless you know how to trouble shoot electronics them please have this set looked at by a pro. Good Luck
