Lightning power surge kv-36fs13 sony fd trinitron wega 36 inch

We had a lightning scare which messed up the tv. The picture looks dark and the people look like a negative. It only effects 2/3'rds of the screen. I have the schematic and i'm ready to try to fix the problem. Can you give me an idea of what to do. Yours sincerely, Dave

    This replacement of IC355 on the A Board is a big deal. I called Sony and discussed the problem. They are very skeptical on your analysis. They told me to ship the A board to them and they will fix if necessary. I was able to disconnect the A board which is a huge hassle. I really hope you are right. Sincerely, David

Recently the picture became dark and heavily tinted with a reddish-brown color, how can I fix it?


Andy there are usually two inverter/backlight boards (usually on each side of the TV ) (inside the back cover). Most have Ribbon cables attached and lead to the screen. might try those. most of the T-con , inverter boards cost nearly the same.(according to the make and model of TV u have) even at $35 each it is still better that buying new TV .

No picture onTV screen only audio after lightning


May be your picture tube got damaged in that lightning. This may be an effect of the magnetization of the picture tube due to a huge electric current passing near it. Try demagnetizing the tube and if it doesn't work get it replaced. Try having a properly working tube of an older television as modern picture tubes lack quality.

My flash bulb doesn't work, picture are dark


Do you have it turned off? Is there a picture of a lightning bolt with a line through it? If so, press the button with the lightning bolt until the screen shows a lightning bolt and an "a". Also, do you have the camera set on a scene mode such as night? The flash won't go off in some scene modes.

Sony pfm 42b1 negative picture


Hi,

I have a Sony PFM-42v1 and it does the same thing, look in your tv menu for picture inversion, usually under screen saver. What it actually does is reduce the chance of screen burnin. By reversing the image it sort of resets the hot areas, brightest colours and the cooler areas being dark colours, switches them around ( negative ). This cools the hot spots and heats up the cold spots.

There should be a option to turn it off, mine and I guess yours as a default is ON, mine has the ON, timer and OFF options.

Hope this helps, please let me know if you need more info.

Dark screen at top of TV picture


If this is a projection set then a center channel speaker sitting on top would have no effect.

SONY KLV30HR LCD TV RED EFFECTS


You probably need to replace the backlight. In parts less than 30$. If you know your way around these things, or know someone who does, it's not a super difficult thing to do. You can get a tutorial that's written for monitors here: http://www.inventgeek.com/Projects/shorts/lcdfix.aspx basically the same procedure for an LCD TV. Good luck!

i dont know this exact model, but i can advice you based on a slightly diffrent model. i hope the solution will be valid for your model as well: TV is digital controlled and have to be adjusted via service menu except the external focus and screen on back of (flyback) high voltage transformer. This is one you can try: Need plastic allen or plastic small flat blade screwdriver to fit these. Focus is top, bottom is the screen that set the overall brightness. Before adjusting, go in menu: press menu once, select picture quality, I think number 4, press 2 for "preset..", press 2 again to select normal. Back out by pressing zero repeatedly. It may ask you to save new settings, select yes. If screen is adjusted too bright, picture look lousy (washed out) the blacks will light up (becomes grey, or visible lines) this means you have actual fault that prevents you to get decent pix, that when it is time to take it in for repair.
