leave the TV on...........unplug it with the power on. let it sit for 5 mins. unplug all audio/video rca jacks,and cable source. and first 3 screws un plug tv stand strap. Take the back off (6 more screws) Look for the little metal box at the end closest to you on the circuit board that plugs into the front buttons. On the back of the box there is 2 screws vertically from each other they should be covered with dust pretty bad. wipe the dust from around the screws. wouldnt hurt to clean it up a bit but dont get carried away just blow the dust off that you can with your mouth and wipe the dust off the base. The bottom screw should say picture. let all the dust settle,hell take a well deserved break! now plug The tv in again. re-attach cable. Turn it on and give it 5 mins to warm up. slowly turn the bottom (picture) screw to the right verrry slowly and you should see the picture come back. now turn it down slowly untill the picture drops again. bring it just back up again and give it just a little extra. but not too much as it will wear the crt faster. youll see............ now pull the cord out of the wall again. reassemble. plug in. watch for 1 min. now turn off again. while its off press on the remote ---channel button-----5-------volume down-----Power-- then after it comes on ----8--------enter. Hope this helped.

Hi, I had high hopes for this working for my problem, but it didn't make a difference. I did see the color of the screen brighten slightly. But when I turn the tv on all I see is a brief flash of a white line on the screen that disappears after just a second, same thing happens when I turn it off. Nothing else. I'm guessing this means my picture tube is fried? While I have the back off of the tv is there a way I can order and replace the picture tube myself? The tv is too heavy for me to take to a repair shop so it has to stay here. Please reply if you know if I can buy and replace the picture tube myself. Thank you.

I can confirm this repair also works with the KV-32S42 model. Thanks!

Thanks for the great advice! The sound but no picture problem started about a month ago and the frequency of the problem has continually got worse to the point the picture was going black every 2-3 minutes for 10 second durations. This week I was about to begin the search for a replacement TV. As a last hope, I searched the internet and came across your solution. I followed your steps and to my amazement the problem is now history. Although my Sony Trinitron is Model KV-32S12(1995), your steps worked perfectly. Again thanks for the advice! Your solution is greatly appreciated!. John.

Hello, I don't know who you are but if you were near you'd get a BIG hug and KISS from me. My 1996 Trinitron was flicking for about 6 months now - every 2 seconds and driving me up a wall. In fact I wanted to throw the rather heavy unit through the wall. I can't afford to get a new one so I wasn't looking forward to having Christmas off without watching some TV and at least a few DVD movies. I decided tonight to google the model and I found your advice along with others having the same problem. The first time I tried your suggestions it didn't work. So I tried again and my TV is on and NOT flicking. THANK YOU SO MUCH :-)

Followed your instructions, and picture looks great! However, now I have no sound coming from the TV itself. Surround sound signal is working fine. Any idea what I may have inadvertantly done?

WOW INDEED! I found the screen adjustment screw on the circuit board attached to the yoke. I turned on the TV, waited 5 minutes for it to warm up, then turned it clockwise ever so slightly, Viola!

WOW :] tv has been getting gradually worse, waited a hour tonight wanting to play the x-box, so thought i'd look ont he net for help. With your little guide it was fixed within ten minutes, i had a focus button at the top, and screen button at the bottom of my tv. tweaked the screen button, and with good use of a mirror managed to get the picture back. now the missus has come home and hogged the telly, lol. tyvm :] (tv model KV-32FX20U)

You ARE the BOMB!!! Thank you so very much! We took your advise (our TV also did not read picture, but Focus) and it worked. I just had to reply to show my gratitude and let others know that this has worked for me. Now we have time to save for a TV we REALLy want, rather than running out and getting anything we can afford. Thanks again!

Hello, My husband and I are trying to find the screw labeled picture and cannot find it. Any clues as to where exactly we would find it?
Ron Posted Sep 14, 2005
WOW- I have a Sony TV model #KV-20V60 and the picture was blinking on and off I just happened to read this reply regarding the same thing but on a different model. Well my nob didn't read picture it reads screen and the nob above it reads focus. Well I did exactly what you wrote and guess what it actually is holding the picture!!! Thank you so much and my 11 year old daughter wants me to tell you your the bomb:)
