Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-24FS120 24" TV

1 Answer

Sony Trinitron 32 tv

I turn on the unit, see a purple screen and within 15 seconds it turns itself off.  I can kinda see a tv show through the purple curtain but changing the channel (within those 15 seocnds) seems to do nothing and i hvae tried to change the video ouput to video 2 or something and it looks like it may be doing something but it is all behind the purple haze. I don't want to pay to much to fix it and was wondering if it was worth it and what was wrong with it. thanks

1) Could be bad CRT ( picture tube )===no green==purple.

 2) Might be lack of green drive to CRT==bad transistor.

 Recommend analysis by technician--usually worth it if CRT ok.

If this is a flat panel LCD tv, this is a sure sign that the panel itself is bad. I have seen this before. Tv comes on works fine then within 5 minutes goes blank.

Screen changes colors only


Hold the Vol+ Vol- buttons down and turn on the power switch in the back of the unit.
The screen should turn blue and some square in the middle of it.
The noisy square is actually the bios being reset.
Once the unit turns itself off, you can turn it back as usual.
Note: Some of these units require a 3 button reset.
In that case hold Vol+ Vol- and Menu at the same time while you turn the power switch on in the back of the set.
I hope it was helpful.

Something wrong


A jammed or defective VCR can cause this symptom if the TV is turning itself off within about 15 seconds of turn on. Otherwise, it could be anything from a bad capacitor in the power supply to a shorted component in the High Voltage/deflection circuits. In other words, time to replace it.

Purple tint on screen


Color splases can show up when the sets are move from one location to another or when they have been dropped while moving it,another reason is when a speaker is placed to close to the tv.The tv has an internal demagnetizer witch gets activated when you turn the tv on,I suggest to unplug the unit for about 15 minutes and then plug the unit and turn it on,If the unit was dropped this problem might not be repairable.I hope the information helps .
