Written on: 28/03/2010

We've had ours for close to 10 years now!! It has been a fantastic TV over that time but our recent move to BD means we need full HD now :(

AS far as TV's go this thing will probably go performing for another 10 years with exceptional standard, well worth the premium we paid at the time. It has been a constant work horse (especially with two kids) and still performs brilliantly.

Thank you SONY… Read Full Review

I have only ever bought Panasonic before this and have never had any problems. My old Panasonic set is still working fine and it's nine years old. The reason I went for a Sony other than it's looks was the reputation it had for excellence. I for one will never consider buying a Sony product again having witnessed what they accept as minor problems… Read Full Review

Sony KV-32FQ75(S) - Sony, who came to my rescue after all the preceding events, were wonderful, if slightly ineffectual. The faulty tube not only had the afforementioned scratch but also an arc-shaped black circle in the centre of it. The shop it was from refused to accept any responsibility before going belly-up within 1 year so I moaned to our local Sony dealership and to my rescue came a very nice Sony person who agreed to replace the tube. But the new one is also faulty and has on the… Read Full Review

I have not had the set long and despite having read all the bad reviews I still went ahead and bought one. So far I have not been disappointed. The set just had all of the features I wanted and then some. It was a very good price especially now that they are end of line. All manufacturers and I guess all sets have some problems, it just seems that the KV32-FQ75 has more than most. (If you do get a bad one, you can always send it back under warranty). However, if you do get a really good… Read Full Review

Sony have made a huge boo boo with this television, they know of the problems with the focusing on the left hand side of the screen but still carried on selling them until they brought the new models out with the (MORE IMPROVED DRC)IF YOU CONTACT A SONY DEALER THEY CAN ALTER THE SCREEN TO BE A BIT MORE SHARPER ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE BUT LOOSING IT A BIT ON THE RIGHT THEY CAN EQUAL THINGS UP

Written on: 11/11/2002 by Mike. (1 review written)

Lets get one thing straight - The (S) and (U) suffix means nothing more than is a stand supplied or not - the nice man from Sony UK told me that. I bought this TV after reading the reviews - some good, some not so good. Buying this TV online for a grand seemed a bargain though, so I did. Lo and behold, the TV I got had the banding problem that others have described. However, Sony have been excellent in their customer service - call them rather than your retailer is what I found to be… Read Full Review

Just a quick comment to say that my set is a 'U' suffix model which I only found out when it was delivered. It was bought from John Lewis and came with the matching self-assembly 'art couture' glass shelf stand at no extra cost without any prior discussion with the salesman about whether I wanted a stand or not.

The purple patch is caused by the magnetic fields from whatever you have placed on the glass shelves...
You cannot use the shelves for what they were intend or you will constantly get this problem...

Written on: 04/11/2002 by ea. (1 review written)

I've had my KV32FQ75 since Feb 2002. Its already been back to the shop to try and find two seperate faults. The first fault was the speakers would make a cracking sound then I would lose the sound for a few seconds. The sound also favours the left hand speaker (I was told this was in the allowable range!). The second fault was when we had a continuous loud electric clicking sound from out of the back of the T.V and the picture pulsed in time with it!! This lasted for about 10 minutes at a time… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/10/2002 by Robbo. (1 review written)

When our 12 year old Sony TV started showing whites with a strong pink hue and needed a new tube, it was time to replace it with a new widescreen TV. An afternoon spent comparing different sets convinced me that the KV32FQ75 picture was one of the best. I eventually bought it for a reasonable £995 (end of line) in September from John Lewis mainly because of their no quibble after-sales service and free 5-year guarantee. I'm not disappointed. It's a 'U' suffix… Read Full Review

Now on my second Sony KV32FQ75(S) TV set which seems to be worse than the 1st as far as the focus goes. I've now also got the added feature of the "buzzing" sound, so you could say i'm a little disappointed with the tv.

Written on: 19/10/2002

I also bought the Sony KV32fq75 and found a problem on focusing on the left side of the set. I had my set replaced by Sony centre, but still have same problem with focusing, maybe not as bad as the previous set. It has been roughly 2-3 since I purchased the set, I wonder if I can ask for a refund from Sony and instead go for possibly a Phillips TV.

I am also not satisfied with DRC, as it does not make any difference when watching normal mode or DRC. Phillips I believe has a better response from pixel plus.

I have email this to Sony, but found no solution, other then refer to my dealer.

I bought my Sony KV32FQ75(S) TV from Jessops (John Lewis) in Nottingham for £999 (inc. 5 year warranty) as our first move to widescreen.
Didn't read these reviews until after purchase so I was delighted to find I had got the "U" model instead of the "S" I was expecting.
No problem with scrolling bands but left-most 3 inches of screen was badly out of focus. Expecting to have to accept a replacement machine I started the after-sales process - taking today off to wait for the engineer. To my… Read Full Review

The Sony KV32FQ75(S) TV has a superb picture... when it's working. My first set lasted less than FIVE minutes. A clicking sound (like a chattering relay) came from the back of the thing-then no picture.
Recovered the pic after half an hour but fault continued to recur.
Set replaced.
Second set PRECISELY the same failure, this time after four days.

I had the clicking sound and the picture flickered at the same time , we did'nt loose the picture completely. Its happened a few times but because it's intermittent the shop haven't seen it happen- so they won't replace the set or do anything about it. The sound also cracks and then
dissapears for a few seconds before comming back.
At least you were able to change your TV. Looks like we will be stuck with ours until it blows up totally!!

Written on: 11/09/2002 by wheelers_deals. (1 review written)

Clearly Sony have had problems with some KV-32FQ75 TV sets, which is disappointing for a set in this price bracket.

Personally, having returned two Panasonic 32PL10s due to sound and picture problems, I am very happy.

The set was a Sony refurb., hence the price, but came with a 3 year guarantee and is absolutely mint consition.

The picture is stunning - wonderful colours, devastatingly good contrast and virtually flicker-free when using the DCF 100.

If I could guarantee that you would get a… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/09/2002 by Bill Adamson. (1 review written)

The reason for purchasing a Sony TV is that the reviews in various magazines were very good and you cannot go wrong buying a Sony. My KV32FQ75(S) TV is suffering from banding, bubbles in the glass and washing out colours. I have been very disappointed and I dare not swap it out as I might get another lemon. There is a drastic lack of shielding at the base of the TV thus rendering the shelves redundant as the magnetic fields from the DVD plaver and Video wash out all reds at the bottom of the… Read Full Review

I recently bought this Sony KV32FQ75(S) TV from my local Alders (£1289 inc 5 yr warranty) and have so far I am very happy with the set. I have a U suffix set, not the S and do not see the horizontal scrolling. The demo in the store had a poor picture quality until the asst. used a good quality scart cable from the DVD player.

You can stop the TV constantly resizing the picture by going into one of the menu's (think its the Set-up one) and changing the format option to 'Off' or 'Normal'. If it is set to 'Auto' the television will constantly adjust the picture to fit the screen fully. On a general note I am on my 2nd set now after the first one blew up after 3 hours and am fairly happy with it. I agree the lack of a 2nd RGB socket is a pain but for TV released in October 2000 this is an acceptable trade off for picture performance that can rival the newer Pixel Plus sets recently introduced. All the best.

My first KV-32FQ75 had bleeding red when using RGB. Got it replaced and now it'w working wonderfully. You can select what TV-channel to watch while in Teletext by using the up arrow I think it was, then selecting a new channel. Works great.

Though I have a KV32FX65, I think the following is probably still true;
<br>
<br>Suffix B probably means it was intended for Belgium. Mine had 'E' and a Spanish wiring diagram. The handbook was an English photocopy too! Bought mine cheaply and knew it was a grey inport - the dealers told me.
<br>
<br>So far as I can tell, does everything it should. Menu offers choice of language, and all features in the handbook work fine.

I today purchased this from www.comet.co.uk - however when it arrived I noticed it had a B suffix. - Does anyone know whether this is the European version - and does it have all the same features as the S suffix (including the DCF feature?)
