    Sony MODEL KV-2585 TV, everytime the TV is put on, Line Driver Transistor Q802 2SC4927 shorts out.

  • Booysen Mzizi Aug 18, 2007

    This advice is 50% helpfull. Sorry I had my information incorrectly reported. The Model is a Sony KV2585.

    From your advice, I have almost solved this problem:
    Q802 is not shorting anymore, but D657(Protechsion zener diode)shorts out as soon as I switch the TV on. Any clue?

  • Booysen Mzizi Aug 19, 2007

    Q657 serves as a 135v regulating zener as well for protection. It is on one of the Secondary output pins of the chopper tranformer,which isolates the power suply on its primary side,and supplkies the rest of the TV with power. As soon asthis is shorted,the set is in an overloaded stage,and thus the hissing sound fromthe transformer,and thus no standby by B+. Because this short is in the primary of the chopper, no fuse breaks,but thus the set is in a protected short. Regrads.

Can any one tell me KV-2585 vertical ic number..please...

I am trying to get the code for a universal remote for my sony kv-2785r . The directions for the remote doesnt seem to be accepted by the tv. Do you have the code for this model?

You have your information incorrect, Q is not the designation for diodes, Q657 would be a transistor. First give us the correct number for the diode and how do you know it is shorted?

    Ok, so you dont have a shorted diode after all, what else confuses me is your heading says KV32FS17 but your text say's KV2585. Now that transistor 2sc4927 is your HOT and if it keeps shorting then I would start checking other things in the Horizontal deflection. I dont have that chassis in my data log so Im just going to take some guesses. Check the flyback, do you have a Dick Smith flyback tester? Check all the electrolytic caps, and check all the resistors. Going out on a limb here I have a log for a KV2785R and I dont know if it is the same chassis or not but look for a resistor R555 if you have it check to see if it is open, if so Sony has an upgrade, let me know if you have that resistor and if it is open, I will give you the upgrade after we find out.

    Ok, since I do not have the schematic there is not much more help I can be but I will try. We have determined That Q802 is your horizontal output, But what section is D657 in?? Is that the power supply? Or is it the vertical? Can you tell me? Since you did not answer me about that resistor (R555) I assume you do not have it in that set. Here's what I would do, since D657 shorts out every time you turn the set on I would check every thing associated with that diode, are you sure it is a zener? Check all the resistors in that circuit as well as any other diodes and check the electrolytics. If D657 is in the power supply check the voltage regulator, do you have a stand by B+ with the set just plugged in but not powered on? Let me know and take it from here.

In panasonic modeltc-29sf3 pls give me the working voltage of zener diode with color code gray red red and red yellow in power supplyn section

just read the model and then google it, beside, if you short them, you need to replace them with same value, and this will be determined by the circuit, if you did not change the circuit - just buy two new diodes and install them, do not bother with voltages as they have some tolerance and type will determine it.

Lg flatron21crt tv vert op ic tda4865 and r303 burns off repeatedly

Check for any short circuited component/s, or any shorted zener diode/s at the related circuit parts; before replacing a new IC. Check for any winding short at the vertical output section of the deflection yoke [a very rare case indeed] too. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

Hp2710m capacitor blown

Look for any short circuit around, short zener diode, short transistors or diodes. Look for any excess voltage in that area where you found blown capacitor. Then replace it and see.

No Display, no sound- not working, showing dead. But input Power is ok. Picture tube filamment not getting power. model sony KV-2192M3

Check the input fuse first. If it is blown, there will be some short inside the power regulator circuit. Usually Sony sets uses STR regulated power supply. You can see this STR, and Ic, screwed onto a heatsink. Replace it with a same type and number. Before replacing the STR, check the diodes used in that section for damage, mainlu zener diodes. They might get shorted along the blowing of the STR. Check that section throughly before resoldering the new STR.
If any further assistance you needs, get me through Fixya. Ok.

Burning and fan type sound

That is probably the power section about to fail. The burning smell is going to be from overheating components. You will have to take it into either an akai repair depot or a local tv repair and have it looked at. Get an estimate first. The repair cost on this could be cheap if itis obvious and the repair gys are on the ball or it can be pricey if they just replace major parts (typical). Also have a good idea of what replacement cost is so you know if it is worth fixing.

Shorted zener diodes in primary, needs exact values!!

There should be a circuit designation printed on the board. Can you poat that here please? I should be able to get the part number from that. It will be CRxx or Dxx.

Tv working fine, then suddenly,pop and black screen, sound is ok

The issue here is that the zeners in question are merely like a safety fuse and replacing them before identifying and fixing the cause of the problem will only cause your replacement zeners to blow aswell.... personally if it is a true plasma it likely chews through alot of power anyway so I would take the opertunity to replace the TV with a newer much less power hungry led TV and in doing so save the hip pocket and the environment.

NO Picture On 2 Video Inputs ( 1 front 1 rear ) : Sound OKAY

Since it is 5 years old mostly dry soldered appears. First sort out the soldered problem. Then check zener diode in video input path is short. Mostly the diode is short. Still get problem check video switching ic also. I think former is the most problem.

No picture or sound

You probably have one or two diodes bad which would have to be unsoldered to replace. Since it is a small TV, it may not be worthwhile to take it to a repair shop -- if you can find a good electronics tech with soldering equipment and a multimeter, have them check out D951 a 12 volt zener diode near the power relay. If good, then I would check out D941 and D942 in the power supply. If all three diodes are bad, the set probably took a power surge or lightening strike and could have other shorted components as well.

Tv does not power up

I have seen the schematic, d982 is a 13v 1/2w zener
