Hi there, I have a sony KV32S45 TV which is about 6 years old and these days the tv turns green and switches off in about 2 to 3 minutes. about couple of months ago, it would do that intermittently but now it's down to 20 seconds to 3 minutes. I didn't want to junk to without find out if I can get it repaired. Thanks in advance

but my guess is your picture tube may be gone; I think it's cheaper to get another one.

Some Info for you
by blibros / January 12, 2005 4:53 AM PST

While researching a slightly different problem on some repair forums, I saw many references to problems that sound similar to what you describe. The problem was generally attributed to a capacitor, not a tube. There was more detailed info available on these boards. People suggested that the repair cost would be about 200-250 if professionally serviced, but could be done very inexpensively if could be done yourself. The part is inexpensive.

Try doing a search on TV turns itself off or some variants and you will likely hit upon some of these discussions.

Sony is notorious for bad power supplies

The post on bad capacitor is exactly correct. It is not a bad tube. These things are SUPER cheap if you can do it yourself.
