Question about Sony KV-32V42 32" TV

Tv tube wont stay on

Hello. The first problem with this tv was that the picture started to leave the tube and move up and down rapidly. I took the tv case off and left it off on an outlet outside, appeared to have burning smell. A friend of mind told me that the vertical had to be re soldered. So i touched it with a screwdriver and it appered to bring the picture back so it was soldered. next i saw the sound was not clear through the the left speaker so i soldered the audio cheap and eventually the tv died. Took it to my friend he replaced a burnt resistor and a chip on the power supply and also the horizontal. TV works at the beginning , but pictures cuts off and sound remains. Tried another power supply and same thing. This happened with many tries and eventually it burned the same components again (horizontal, and a resistor and some other chip from the power supply). Any advice on what might be wrong? Thanks for the help

In 97 Sony had problems with Flyback on these sets, so the thing I would do different is change it, along with the other components

Rings on outside edge of screen and color of entire screen is green,blue and purple

Your TVs Degausing coil is not working. Degausing coil is one, which fitted around the picture tube internally, to demagnatize it at each time you switch on the tv. if you are using your TV without switching it off by its mains switch, and turn it to an other direction, this effect will occcur. You just switch off the TV by its main switch, and leave it for about 1/2 an hour, and then switch it on, and see whether it helps or not.
If not, the degausing posistor inside fitted on the circuit board of the TV, has to be replaced. It can be located on the power supply input section of your TVs circuit board. Ok.

My tv has five coloured lines which go straight down the screen what is the problem?


Your TV may have focus problem. If the focus pack of the TV [which is usually integrated with its Line Output Transformer (LOT)], may faulty. It is a rare case. In most similar cases, the CRT socket, connected on the base board of the TV may get damaged, due to this proper focus voltage doesn't reach to the respective pin of the picture tube. You just replace the picture tube base socket with a similar new one. In most cases this will retify the problem.

JK321 32" High Definition LCD TV no picture has vertical lines on left side of screen, is it worth fixing.


well this is common on your model and could be a few different things. one is the video circuit and a cost would range around 100.00. the other is a weak picture tube this would cost more than the TV new. sometimes when it is the tube we can adjust it but it does not always last long. sounds to me it would be better to invest into a newer TV in this case.
good luck :)

This model TV has a gasket on the red picture tube that faces down. The coolant leaks from between the picture tube and the lense assembly. When this happens the red tube over heats and shorts out internally and usually cracks the glass.You will probably find coolant all over the circuit board if you open the back panel of the TV.
Call a good TV Tech to repair this. It will cost over $500 if the picture tube is still available.

The screen turn completly red after about 20 min being on

Usually that is a sign that your red picture tube is ailing. However there is a chance that it can be adjusted out, at least buy you time worst case.There is a voltage control in the front of the TV, you have to remove the bottom front half of tv to get to it. Some Sony's have 2 screws hiding at the bottom of set in front hidden behind 2 plastic covers,others just have screws along the backside.Be careful there are wires to front panel attached so remove slowly and leave wires on just move it out of your way..Once you remove that there is a small access panel to take off. You will see the voltage control (small plastic square with 6 knobs) The top knobs are focus controls for each tube the bottoms are for voltage adjust. The far right knobs are for red.So you can turn the red voltage control SLOWLY to the left,this will reduce voltage.Reduce until you see the red lines disappear. If you go too far one way or the other with the voltage control the tv will shut down and you'll waste time readjusting and turning set on until it stays on. If you can't adjust it enough to get all the red out without shuting down tv tube is in too bad of shape.

Blue is good but I couldn't adjust the red and the letters have laggig red behind them and the picture hvae red eyes and also red shadows

Right now I am troubleshooting the same problem. If you go into your picture menu on your tv go to manual red convergence and hit right. It should give you 3 sets of cross hairs and your red will be able to move up and down and from left to right. If yours is anything like mine your red will not move from left to right but will have no problem going up and down. If this is the case, chances are that there is a resistor blown on the board attached to your tube that controls the red (far left looking from the back). If you don't feel good about checking resistors and diodes on that board DO NOT start taking things apart. repair costs will only get bigger the more you take apart.

Flashes blue and then the tv shuts down

The tech is correct about the internal short inside the blue CRT. There is a way to remove that short by applying a small amount of current to burn the short but that might damage the CRT even more. At this point the CRT needs to be replace.
I will post the instructions on how to remove that short but you will need to have a good regulated power supply and limit the amount of current to 1 to 2 amps.

Power on and yet picture flicks and powers it's self off (over and over again)

First it's not just Philips, they all are making TV to only last a few years now, they are not made to last, thats how they make money by selling you something you will have to replace in just a few short years. As far as your problem, you may have a cold solder joint somewhere, do you have a 25/35 watt soldering iron? if so try soldering pins on the regulator IC the vertical IC the horz output transistor and drive transformer and the flyback, in fact solder just about as much as you can, spend some time in there soldering. Dont forget to ubplug the set and stay away from the high voltage anode connected to the picture tube, it can still hold a charge even if the set is unplugged, do not try to take it off. Hope this helps!

No image from blue light

Looks like you lost video going to that blue tube. I would check for loose connections or a wire being jarred loose. These projection sets can't take much rough handling when moving.
