Hello Forum. I have a 34XBR960 that I bought new in 2004. It has died last week. I turn it on see three red blinks and the tv shuts off. Is this an easy fix? I had the set calibrated in 2005 and I have never seen a better picture.

Typical problem is a certain IC fails. There are two and one has failed. You would replaced both.
IF 6 OR 7 BLINKS.

http://nickviera.com/av/sony_wega/

3 blinks is a power supply problem. Either the power supply or IC 6505 that reports the problem.

----------------

6-7 blinks continued

Are you able to do work on IC boards with fine traces? There are two 16 pin IC's to remove.
You need a fine tip temperature controlled soldering iron, solder wick and solder sucker.

The back cover is removed and the IC is then exposed.

It is not an easy job. You need decent skills/experience. But if you fail, not much lost.

There is a repair kit with the two IC's and two sockets. The cost of the kit is trivial.

Just got a used KD-34XBR960 for just $50 and love it a lot.. however for just $50 is does have some problems that I'll like to get fixed. I've more or less removed all the overscan but I have some convergence problems & I think the disk magnets need to be adjust as the corner are not right. (or can the magnets go bad over time?)

These TVs are sensitive to external magnet fields. If there is or has been non shielded speakers near by you can have problems.

I've seen some info on hare so far & its be very helpful. I be sure to keep reading. The problems are not very bad but all the HD CRTs that I tired out so far all got the same problems. I used two Hi-Scan models before this god or a home CRT.

I'm not sure if anyone has does this to it before or not, I know I have not. It does has this in the manual:

Disk magnets or rotatable disk magnets correct these areas a-d. Its only the four corners that same to have this problem. Its not seeable for more things but I can see it in games as I'm using the menu. I can also see some red, greed & blue lines some parts of the screen, that most likely the convergence.

The demagnetization coil really only works properly when there is no external field, ie from an shielded speaker.

If there is an external magnetic field, the demagnetization will imprint the magnetic field, not erase it.

Above may not have any application to your situation.

I'm not sure but from what I've seen online, I may need to position my yoke or move it back as it sames that can move off a little over time.
I'm thinking I'll need up just opening it someday soon & just do most of the things in the service manual.

Like what this guy has done to a older 36" that I may do the same from my old 28" that the same model type.

What's a fair price to pay for one with and without the modular SONY stand?

I would say $100-200 depending on condition. Make sure that the set has never been in a non-climate controlled space.

If it's stored in a garage, that's a problem?

Yes- a tv such as this should never store in a garage, basement nor attic. Climate -controlled conditions only.

I've never owned one, but I own two KD-36XS955 sets, and they are both still working just fine.

I love my set and got used to the slight problems with the curving of the upper left corner and a touch of side overscan once I did service menu tweaking.
What really drives me nuts are the phosphor trails. Otherwise it's a total beauty.
My current settings are:
Picture 20
Brightness 40
Color 31
Sharpness 27
Pro mode

I think my brightness may be a tad too high for movies and games seem to need a bit more.

My question is about inherent sharpness. I've seen some things appear that seems bit like edge enhancement halos and wasn't sure if there's some type of service menu controlled EE within the set itself. I have the menu VM totally off.

For sale 2, Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KD-34XBR960 34

Hi all, I have been reading your forum for years. Members have been a tremendous help with my Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KD-34XBR960 34, saved it more than once. I finally signed up today to post the below for sale.

I have for sale 2 Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KD-34XBR960 34 televisions.

TV 1 – Purchased in 2005 at Circuit City screen coating is a mess, glass is fine. Picture has color tint issues. Chip repair done on this set. this set used cable card slot works fine. HDMI cable kind of loose included cable that works well. No stand

TV 2 – Purchased in 2007 at Best Buy. Excellent condition, used in den mostly for gaming, screen perfect, picture perfect. Also, used with cable card. This set comes with the matching stand.

Both sets have been kept in temperature controlled area. I have the original manuals and 1 used remote another brand new remote still in package.

It kills me to let them go, I was perfectly happy with then but, husband wanted an LG OLED (I still like my Sony’s better)

200.00 take them both. I am in Putnam county NY. Must come with someone to help carry them out. Please contact me at my e-maill addresss listed in my profile if interested.
