The TV had normal sound, and the screen was black except for the channel display . The results were the same in video mode. I traced the video to the base of Q40 1, but the video was lost after that point. The a/v switch, IC401, had no video on it. When I tried to measure the voltage on pin 1 (TV video in,) the set shut down. I found that R425 was not soldered on end. The resistor goes between Pin 1 5 and 16 (pin 16 is connected to the 9V source) of U401. Soldering the resistor repaired the TV. Click the link to see the schematic KV13M20 Customer Complaint: The picture on the TV rolls. The Picture had no horizontal or vertical sync. Replacing jungle chip IC301 repa ired the TV. IC301 P/N 8-752-070-52 KV13TR28 Customer Complaint: No Sound There was no sound on tuner or the A/V jacks. The speaker and audio output IC we re ok. After looking at the service manual, I discovered that it had the wrong t uner diagram in it and so I had to trace the circuit by hand to discover the fun ction for each of the pins. The audio was coming out of the tuner at pin 16 and going back in at pin 15. Pin 14 should have had the audio coming out, but it was not. Pin 13 was the volume control pin and there was no voltage on it when the volume control was run up or down. The volume control voltage was changing at IC101 pin 59. I traced the volume con trol line from pin 59 and eventually found that it ran to R069 and R459 and then to pin 13 on the tuner. R459 had a bad solder connection on one end. After sold ering, the sound came back on and the volume control worked as it should. R459 a nd R069 are not on the diagram and are located under the plastic rail that runs down the center of the chassis. KV13VM20 Customer Complaint: Set will not turn on. The standby power supply was ok. The 6V line, in the VCR on the MA board, was do wn to 2V. IC103, the 6V regulator IC was defective. IC103 (P/N 8-759-982-06) KV13VM20 Customer Complaint: No sound from tv or vcr There was no audio, so I checked the audio output and found that the 12V B+ to p

in 9 was missing. This set uses a separate 12V regulator IC for the audio and wh en I checked it I found loose solder connections on the pins of the IC. Solderin g IC1805 restored audio to the set. KV13VM30 Customer Complaint: The TV/VCR is dead. The TV/VCR would not turn on. When I checked the power supply, I saw that the re gulator IC's had broken solder connections.

(IC603 P/N 9-882-271-01) KV13VM42 Customer Complaint: Dead set The relay would click but otherwise the set was dead. Before doing too much circ uit troubleshooting, I like to examine the set for damage, water or soda spills or broken circuit boards. While looking the set over I saw a small piece of wire between pins 1 and 2 of P901. After removing the wire (it wasn't soldered in pl ace), I pushed the power button and the set worked ok. P901 is located on the C (CRT) board. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------KV19TS20 Customer Complaint: Snow only; sometimes channels would come in. I checked the tuner by substitution and it was ok. The voltages on the tuner wer e ok, but the waveform on the clock pin didnt look right. Q123 the clock inverte r was leaky. Replacing it fixed the TV. Q123 = {2SA1175 P/N 8-729-119-76} KV20FS12 Customer Complaint: Dead TV was dead and had no standby 7V power. D617 and Q605 were shorted and fuse res istor R602 was open.

The width was narrow, but the condition was very intermittent. Moving the chassi s up and down would make it act up sometimes and when it did the B+ measured 85V instead of 115V. I found a broken circuit trace between D614 and R644. These co mponents feed the voltage from the control winding on T603 to pin 1 of regulator IC601. KV20TS27 Complaint: When switching to video the video would switch but the audio would no t. (Sams 2903) I located a break in a circuit trace near the front right tune mounting lug. Rep airing the broken trace fixed the audio switching problem. KV20TS27 Customer Complaint: The picture flickers. The brightness was pulsating up and down with screen content change. Replacing t he jungle IC did no good. I decided the problem was in the ABL (automatic bright ness control) circuit and I started at the ABL pin on the flyback and worked my way through the circuit until I came to the PIC-ABL circuit and I found an open electrolytic capacitor C317. Replacing C317 repaired the set. (C317 22uf @ 50V P /N 1-126-233-11) KV20TS29 Customer complaint: Lines at the top 2" of the picture. There were red, green, blue, and white lines in the top 2 inches of the picture. I checked the capacitors around the Vertical output IC and found C509 to be ope n. Replacing C509 repaired the set. C509 = 100uf @ 50V KV20TS32 Customer Complaint: Just clicks no picture or sound. The TV was going into shutdown due to the B+ being too high, 125V instead of 115 V. Capacitor C630 had leaked electrolyte and damaged IC602 the power regulator I C. (C630 10uf 50V) (IC602 P/N 1-810-050-11) KV20VM20 Customer Complaint: Won't turn on. The unit had power but would do nothing. IC103 in the VCR was defective. IC103 s upplies 6V standby power. (IC103 AN7806 or KIA78006PI or ECG962) KV20VM20 Customer Complaint: Picture is ok then goes to snow. The TV would tune in a channel then it would go to snow only. The tuner was inte rmittent. When I received the new tuner it didn't come with the cable (F-pin) co nnector on it as the service manual had shown and there was no part number in th e manual for the F-pin. Here is the part number for the F-pin connector 9-939-36 1-01. (Tuner P/N 9-909-004-01) KV20VM42

Customer Complaint: The picture is too big. The vertical size would start out ok, but after 10 minutes the size would begin to increase and the linearity at the top would stretch. The output stage checked out ok. I found a leaky capacitor C362 in the vertical ramp up circuit. C362 is located on the MA board and is connected to pin 24 of IC501. (C362 P/N 9-882-16 4-01 2.2uf 50V 105') KV2182P Customer Complaint: Dead The TV had power and high voltage but no sound and a black screen. I found a ope n resistor that supplied power for the vertical circuit. Replacing R855 repaired the TV. (R855 .47 ohm 1/4W) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------KV24FV12 Customer Complaint: Sound goes up by itself. I never heard the sound go up by itself but it did may strange things, like go i nto video mode when the volume down button was pushed and the remote would only turn on the set and nothing else. I found the cause. It was a leaky zener diode D2002 on the KEY SW line. D2002 P/N 8-719-110-17 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------KV2657R Customer Complaint: Picture is too dark The picutre had low contrast and the picture control didn't work.

The 135V line was running high and the TV was going into shutdown. The regulator IC was ok. I found an open capacitor C540 that was the cause of the problem. (C 540 33uf @ 160V) KV2790R Customer complaint: TV clicks but only the sleep light comes on. The TV turned on, but had no picture or sound and only the sleep LED was on; the controls had no effect. I new the microcomputer IC101 needed vertical pulses to operate, so I checked for them at pin 7 and found that they were missing. I tur ned up the G2 screen control and had a white raster, so the vertical output was working. I checked for pulses at the base of Q506 the vertical pulse transistor and found none there. I found R578 to be open. Replacing it repaired the set. R5 78 = 4.7K @ 1/4W KV2790R Customer complaint: TV takes awhile to come on. When the power button was pushed the relay would click but there was no high vol tage. After 5 minutes the high voltage would come up but low and the longer the TV ran the higher the voltage. I found that C578 the horizontal drive coupling c apacitor was the cause of the problem. C578 is a .47uf 50V cap but use a 1uf 100 V cap beacuse it will hold up better. KV27EXR10 Customer Complaint: TV goes dead when hot. The TV played for 2 hours then the screen went black and lost the sound too. The OSD was still present so I knew the power supply had not gone into shutdown. On

the A board, I found loose connections on the A22 connector. This connector fee ds video and audio to and from the A/V switch located on the U1 board. Soldering the connections repaired the set. KV27EXR25 Customer Complaint: The TV just clicks, no picture or sound. The TV was going into shutdown. The over voltage protections circuits in this se t were causing the relay to turn off the TV.

The high voltage is too high due to the 135V line being too high. IC 653 in the B+ regulator circuit is the cause. {IC653 P/N 8-749-920-62 or SE-135NS} KV27EXR25 Customer Complaint: The picture gets narrow on bright scenes. The 135V line is low and has no regulation. IC652 is the cause. {IC652 P/N 8-719 -156-73 or PS2501-1LB} KV27FS16 Customer Complaint: TV turns on by itself. The TV will turn on by itself only when the sleep timer was used to automaticall y turn off the TV. The system control IC001 is the cause. It has a software bug in the timer control section and the IC must be replaced to resolve the problem. The new replacement part number is T-998-607-36. IC001 is located on the MA boa rd. The TV also has a problem with Timer 2 and replacing the IC will fix it too. KV27FX10 Customer Complaint: Sound is ok but the screen is black. I saw a faint letter on the screen and decided to check the G2 screen voltage an d found only 150V on it. The 1000V was missing and D508 was the cause. It was sh orted and fuse resistor R542 was open. D508 and R542 are located on the D board. (D508 P/N 8-719-300-65, R542 1.8K 1W) By the way, does this model seem strange? This was Sony's early extended definition (line doubler) TV. Few were sold and fewer are still in use. KV27FX10 Customer Complaint: Green band in picture There was a two inch horizontal green band 6 inches down from the top of the pic ture. The size would vary with the brightness but would never go away. The video and color circuits checked out ok. The voltages from the power supply measured ok but when my hand touched the heatsink of the main 5V regulator IC I noticed t hat the heatsink was cold and it should have been hot. The IC was not allowing e nough current to pass to run the 5V line properly. Replacing IC2601 on the F boa rd repaired the set. (IC2601 SI-3052 or SI-3522V P/N 8-749-920-71)

KV27HFR Complaint: TV is dead. The 135V B+ line was down to 90v and the picture was pulled in from all sides, b efore the TV went dead. I found that R656 a 220K 1/2w resistor had opened.

The TV did not have enough width and would not tune in the station. The B+ was o nly 95V. Power control transisior Q613 was shorted. Replacing it restored the TV to normal operation. P/N 8-729-924-90 KV27S25 Customer Complaint: Has sound but no picture The sound was ok but the screen was black and there was high voltage. I turned t he screen control up and there was a faint white light on the screen that was br ighter at the top and faded out towards the bottom. I thought there might not be any vertical deflection, so I scoped the vertical out IC and there was no outpu t. When I check the voltages, I found the -15V to the vertical IC to be missing. R536 a .47 ohm 1/4w fuse resistor was open. Replacing R536 repaired the unit. R 536 (P/N 1-249-377-11) KV27S26 Customer Complaint: Black screen sound ok. The screen was black and the timer LED blinks once a second. The video was being muted. I found capacitor C563 to be the cause. C563 is in the neck protect circ uit. C563 220uf @ 10V KV27S42 Customer Complaint: Only a tiny picture at the bottom of the screen. The TV had a faint white screen except for 1 inch at the bottom, which looked li ke the top of the picture. It almost appeared to be a vertical centering problem . I put the TV into the service mode and checked the values in the EEPROM and th ey were normal. The vertical centering register could be changed in value and th e picture on the screen would move within the inch that was showing. I found the jungle chip IC301 to be the cause on the problem. (IC301 P/N (old 8-752-090-39) 8-752-095-96) KV27S42 Customer Complaint: Dead The tv was dead and the timer led was blinking 4 times. The power relay was not being engaged.

The picture would intermittently loose quality. It looked like a special effects called pastel mode used by digital cameras. The Digital comb filter was the cau se. IC1204 on the P4 board was defective. The P4 board, A-1195-054-A, and the IC 1204, 8-741-694-01, are no longer available. The comb filter board 8-742-025-10 will work but the connector on the board is different so the connector on the ca ble will have to be cut off and the wires soldered to the board. KV27XBR95S Customer Complaint: Black lines in the picture.

The picture looked like the vertical interlace was not working. The horizontal l ines were paired up leaving black spaces between the pairs. When I moved the TV I saw the picture jump and become normal. I found that tapping the G board made the problem come back. C652 had poor solder connections on it. C652 filters the 11V line and is a 2200uf 16V capacitor. Soldering the capacitor repaired the TV. KV27XBR95S Customer Complaint:The picture has a hour glass shape. The raster was bowed in on the sides like the pincushion circuit was bad. I foun d a loose connection on Q605. Q605 is in the power control circuit and is locate d on the G board. KV27XBR95S Customer Complaint:Dead When the power cord was plugged in the degausser kicked in (this is normal for t his set) but otherwise the set was dead.

The power supply voltages were all there except for the 9V line. Power on the main chassis is turned on b y switching on IC641 the 9V regulator IC. The OCP circuits use this IC to turn o ff the tv in case of a current over load. I found loose connections on R579 and R578 causing the OCP circuit to turn off the tv. KV32S36 Customer Complaint: Dead The TV was dead; Q601 and Q602 were shorted. R607 and R622 were open. After repl acing these parts and before powering up the TV, I checked for shorts on the B+ lines and found the 135V line had zero ohms to ground. The horizontal output tra nsistor Q502 was shorted. I replaced it and fired up the TV. The degaussing rela y clicked and the front panel LED blinked and went out there was no high voltage . I found that the 9V power line had only 4.5V on It.

The timer LED was blinking continuously. There was no 135V. Q502and IC601 were s horted. I rang T503 and it was shorted. I replaced all parts the TV came on, and was on a inactive channel. I went to get the remote to change channels and when I came back the TV was dead. Q502 and IC601 were shorted again, but so were dio des D502 and D503. I replaced all the shorted parts and using a variac I slowly brought up the line voltage. At 40VAC the TV had high voltage and a raster. I su pplied full power and the 135V line was correct and the raster was normal. As I looked at the screen the raster pulled in from the sides to give an hour glass s hape and before I could blink my eyes the set went dead and all the parts I had replaced shorted out again. The hour glass shape to the raster meant I had a pin cushion problem. I ran the set at reduced voltage and found IC501 the pin contro l IC was the cause of all the trouble.

The remote would not work but the power button would turn off the set. I turned the G2 screen co ntrol up and saw a faint grey screen and the vertical was pulled up from the bot tom of the screen. This was a false clue for there was nothing wrong with the ve rtical. The problem was the tuner. The SDA line read 0V instead of 5V and the tu ner was pulling this line down and this prevented the micro from communicating w ith the I2 bus. Replacing the tuner repaired the TV. (Tuner P/N 8-598-431-00) KV32S45

Customer Complaint: Goes dead The TV would turn on and then shutdown. The horizontal drive was going down. Thi s was caused by the high voltage protect circuit. The 135V B+ and high voltage w ere ok. The protect circuit was causing the trouble. I found loose solder connec tions on R530 and R531. KV32SXR10 Customer Complaint: The remote wont work. The remote control was ok.

The standby 5V regu lator IC also provides the 5V reset to the system control and that was missing f rom pin 4 of IC602. Replacing regulator IC602 repaired the tv. (IC602 P/N 8-759805-37) KV32TW75 Customer Complaint: No picture The TV had a faint grey raster with lines in it that looked like weak video. Put ting a signal through the video in jack made no difference. I traced the video s ignal from the detector out on the IF block to the input (pin 2) of the comb-fil ter and it was ok, but the signal coming out of the comb-filter (CM351 pin 6 ) w as very weak. I checked the B+ at pin 3 of CM351 and it was only 3V instead of 9 V. IC352 the 9V regulator for the comb-filter was defective. (IC352 P/N 8-759-98 2-34 or RC78M09FA or ECG1966) KV32V16 Customer Complaint: Dead set The relay would click, when the power on button was pushed. There was 135V on th e horizontal output transistor, but no high voltage. I checked for horizontal dr ive and there was only a short pulse, when the power was first turned on. I thou ght the TV was in shutdown, but in this set over voltage and overcurrent protect ion is handled by PM501 on the D board and it turns the power relay off for shut down, so the TV was not in shutdown. I suspected a problem with the jungle IC on the M board. I replaced IC301 and the TV was repaired. (IC301 p/n 8-752-059-67) KV32V35 Customer Complaint: Sound ok, no picture. When the tv was turned on, the high voltage would start up then go into shut dow

n. The sound stayed on. In this chassis, there are several kinds of shut down ci rcuits and they handle the operation differently. If the B+ or high voltage are excessive, then one set of protect transistors cause the relay in the power supp ly to turn off. This results in a dead set after turn on. In the case of a verti cal problem, protect transistors Q561 and Q562 cause the horizontal drive to tur n off. The +12V and -15V to run the vertical output circuit is derived form the flyback transformer, so turning off the horizontal drive is one way to protect t he horizontal output stage in case of a shorted vertical output IC. I checked IC 561 and found it to be shorted. It was not shorted to ground, but shorted betwee n VCC+ (pin 2) and VCC- (pin 4). Replacing IC561 repaired the set. Be sure to ch eck the fuse resistors and diodes of the +12V and -15V sources, before replacing the IC. If either voltage is missing the new IC will be ruined.

It looked like IK blanking. I reduced the vertical height so I could see the 3 IK sample lines at the top of the of the screen. After a few min utes the picture blinked and went black, the red, green, and blue sample lines w ere still there and as I watched they slowly faded out. I thought it looked like the crt filaments might have gone out and they had. I traced the problem back t o a loose connection on pin 5 of the flyback. Soldering the loose connection rep aired the TV. KV32XBR15 Customer complaint: The picture is too wide and the on screen display are almost off the right side of the screen. The pincushion circuit had no effect. The 24V horizontal pulse was missing. Pin 11 on T500 the flyback was loose. Soldering pin 11 corrected the width. KV32XBR15 Customer complaint: When the TV is turned on only the sleep light comes on nothi ng else. I checked the voltage at the 9V regulators on the main circuit board and they me asured 0V. The 18V input to the regulators measured 2V. I checked the 18V source on the F board it was low. The cause was a loose connection on the center lead of D657 the 18V rectifier. Soldering it repaired the set.

KP46V15 Customer Complaint: Red double images The red centering would drop down. There was a loose connection at pin 1 of D-4 on the D board. This is the red vertical centering line. KP46V15 Customer Complaint: The screen goes black. The screen would go black except for a red, green, and blue curved line at the b ottom of the screen just left of center. The audio was ok. Tapping on the D (con vergence) board would cause the picture to come back on. I found a loose connect ion on pin 1 of connector D-14. This is the vertical blanking pin. KP46V35 Customer Complaint: No sound IC202 on A board was defective. It was damaged by an arcing anode on the green c rt. (P/N 8-759-090-21 or TDA8424) KP46XBR25 Customer Complaint: Blue shadow around all pictures. The blue was off center and the horizontal center couldn't be adjusted with the menu control. None of the horizontal center controls on the convergence board ha d any effect. I found loose connections on connector A22. The V board plugs into A22 and the horizontal centering IC's are located on this board. A22 is located on the A board. KP48S65 Customer Complaint: Dead set The TV had no sound or high voltage. IC810, in the power supply, was shorted and R608 was open. After replacing them IC801 shorted again at turn on. I jumped th e relay and using a variac I slowly raised the line voltage. Sony says to go no more that 50VAC and so I stopped at 40VAC and measured the output of the power s upply. All the voltages were a little high, so I new there were no shorts causin g the IC to fail. I found the regulation transformer T604 to be the cause of the failure of IC801. I replaced T604 and the set was repaired. {IC801 P/N 8-729-04 1-12} {R608 P/N 1-202-933-61} {T604 P/N 1-429-992-11} KP48V45 Customer Complaint: No picture or sound only hums.

C607 820uf @ 200V (P/N 1-125-692-11) KP53S15 Customer Complaint: Blue shadow in picture The blue registration was incorrect. The components on the convergence board all check ok. I compared the resistance of the three convergence yokes and found th at the blue (120 ohms) was a lot higher than the red or green. I took apart the blue convergence yoke and checked where the lead wire and coil were soldered. Th e connection was loose. Cleaning the wire and soldering repaired the TV. KP53S25 Customer Complaint: TV just clicks and the timer light blinks. When turned on the I could hear high voltage come up and then go down. The timer LED was continuously blinking indicating a protection circuit had triggered a s hutdown. After going through Sony shutdown trouble shooting guide, I decided the trouble was on the E board which has the flyback on it. Q913 was leaky and sinc e it is in the protection circuit it was causing the power supply to go into shu tdown. (Q913 P/N 8-729-029-86 or DTC124ES or ECG2357) KP53S65

The picture was bowed but it was also too wide. Q508 the pin output transistor w as shorted. After replacing Q508 there was no change in the width and Q508 was r unning very hot, so hot I could not touch it's heatsink. I checked Q505, Q506, a nd Q507. They were ok. I found a leaky capacitor in the horizontal circuit. C512 a 3uf 200V (not electrolytic) had 12meg ohm leakage. Replacing C512 repaired th e TV. (C512 P/N 1-136-598-11) (Q508 2SA1301 O) KP53XBR35 Customer Complaint: Poor convergence and then dead The relay would click but otherwise the set was dead. On the G (power supply) bo ard I found that D605 and Q603 were shorted. After replacing the shorted parts I turned on the set and it ran but I could smell something burning and I found re sistors R1719, R1809, R1729, and R1808 were overheating. They are located on the D (convergence) board. Red convergence out IC1704 was shorted causing the resis tor to overheat. I checked the two fuses on the board and found that the custome r had replaced the 3.15 amp fuses with 4 amp fuses and this is what had damaged the power supply and allowed the resistors to overheat. Replacing the shorted IC and damaged resistor and installing the correct fuses repaired the TV. D605 8-719-988-31 or D10SC6MR Q603 8-729-011-15 or 2SC4582NP IC1704 8-749-923-16 or STK4278L
