    Hi

    I have 3 year old Sony KD32DX100 U digital TV.

    It has recently taken to misbehaving.

    Without warning the screen will go green (very like this) and a noise similar to what you hear when you turn the TV is heard. When the picture returns it is normally (but not I think always) reset to BBC1 (the first channel listed).

    Any ideas what might be causing this?

    Thanks in advance for any pointers

    John

    Thanks JayCee

    The men from the local Sony shop have hazarded various guesses ranging from problems with Freeview software to a faulty tube, or a bad digital tuner.

    I can imagine that this is going to be horribly expensive ti diagnose and fix as it is so intermittent ;-(

    Regards

    I had a Sony 29inch (~ 8 years old) which would elicit green scan-like lines and then turn itself off, sometimes the tv could be switched on quickly - other times it would take up to 20 mins to finally power back on. A TV engineer initially could not replicate my fault or find evidence of it but went over all the dry joints which alleviated the problem for a couple of weeks.

    After the green lines came back and the TV refused to turn on at all the TV guy took it back into his shop. A part was ordered which he thought maybe the fault, fitted the part then the tube itself blew, tv guy stated this was a sign the TV was irreparable. It is now taking pride and place on some landfill site.
