hi I have a sony kv20fv12 wega tv about 2-3 years old.
the other night it made a quick small kind of "sizzle" noise. The screen went dark. sound still there.I changed channels thinking it could have been the cable signal. The picture came back for a second, then went dark, did that a couple-few times, same thing. Turned it off for a few hours Turned it back on, all seems ok, good picture and sound,
Now when it turns on, sometimes I see what I can only describe as a sort of arc of rainbow colored light across the screen a bit higher than the center,
and then when turing it off,
I see a round blob of rainbow colored light about maybe 3-4 inches in size at the center of the screen which slowly fades away.
I never saw it do either one of those things before it made the quick little sizzle noise and the screen went dark.
But anyway, the question is,
Is the TV set on its way out? Is that the picture tube going bad or something else inside maybe minor and cheap, and is it worth even having it looked at , or should I run it to death, then just throw it away?
I thought sony wega was a really good tv
any opinions helpful
