Sony Triniton kv-2xxxx Rgb Mod
« on: April 08, 2020, 10:37:49 pm »
So instead of floading the other thread with my maybe useless info, ill just start another one.
So short story, i got me a big heavy sony tv with uknown model as the sticker was pilled off , but the chassis says is a BA-5 , there is lots of information at the https://shmups.system11.org/ forums, but it takes alot of time and luck to get help from there. But lucky me, one guy had the exact same model as me and gave me alot of information on what should i do in order to get this rgb mod done. So i started asking here http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,161834.msg1711764.html#msg1711764
Now i started disassembling my tv yesterday and had a few cables soldered today. Tomorrow i would go buy the resistors i need and hopefully ill start testing by this weekend. here are some pictures of the work i did today.

I have a 32" KV-32FS13 with the BA-5 chassis. Do you think it will have the same circuit boards and require the same wiring as the 20-something" models since the chassis is the same?

Awesome. Thanks!  :cheers: Since my TV has component input, would RGB end up being that much better for image quality? I've already got VGA to component and SCART to component adapters for consoles that can output RGB through those types of connectors. Just wondering if it's worth the effort of doing the mod...

soldered my cables today,tomorrow will test them out, i added 2 resistors for a total of 910 Ohms and 75 ohms that would go to ground.
I do have one question, by just puting all the grounds together, wouldn't that just short the rgb cables as well? and what am i missing?

You have a lot of spacing there. Doesn't matter much for the 910R in series part, but the 75R terminator (to ground) should be as close to the input as reasonably/decently possible.

Connecting the grounds won't short R-G-B lines to ground because they'll have those 75R resistors there to stop that.

thank you sir, ill fix the grounds before testing.

So i installed everything , fired up the tv, and its was a succesful failed attempt, the tv started making alot of clicking noises, no image but just like ghostly images with lines on top....aaaaaa ---fudgesicle--- it, not worth the time, its  way to big and too heavy for an arcade anyway, so ill just get another smaller tv and try again...thanks for your help guys, case closed on this one.
