20 Most Recent Sony KP-65WV700 65" Rear Projection HDTV Questions & Answers

Since the set does come on try to see if it has a error buffer.

Set off and using the Sony remote: Display, 5, volume down, Power.

If it has that and comes on you should see a box in middle of the screen with several items listed-----each should have a zero to the right of it----any with a number indicates an error found and the number indicates the number of times it has happened.

Let me know what you find if anything--I can offer further help but first want to know if a error has been recorded.

Some of these had bad picture tubes--(model indicated here uses 3 tubes)

Simple test is go to a black and white channel and turn color to zero= is the screen black and white or some other color?

Also go to a unused video input and look at screen=all you should see is black screen with the input number in green= any other color and something may just need to be adjusted.

Hello sburdano,
Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!
To answer your question: The colors are all working, they are just out of alignment.
Judging by what you have said hear, I would assume that the television have been moved, rather roughly, or bumped into rather abruptly. The color wheel will need to be re-aligned to the lamp and lens. You need to find out what your local TV Repair shop would charge for re-tuning.
Have a great day!

First thing to try is - do a "Convergence"

Your TV owners manual will tell you how to do this, but here's a video and instructions:

How-to video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=esk4nYZKFcg
how-to instructions: www.ehow.com/how_2034880_perform-convergence--tv.html

cost to you: $zero

If a "convergence" doesn't resolve the problem, repost your problem, including the information
that the problem wasn't resolved by doing a "Convergance" procedure.

Re-solder convergence output ICs pins and nearby big resistors that might solve your tv picture problem and if that does not help then replace both convergence output ICs to fix the problem.
Convergence output ICs would be available in local repair parts shop or google it.

I'm afraid, its RED Picture tube problem that will be replaced.
It is qualified tech job to replace picture tube in rear projection TV because there are few adjustments required after replacement.
Please call local tech for fix tv.

I had a similar problem. I had a 52" RCArear projection tv. It would do this when I initially turned on the television, but then after a few "on/off, on/off, on/off" cycles it would stay on. Eventually it started doing it more; until finally there was a spark and that was it. The tv was dead.The bloggers called it "the blinking green light of death" (because of green light on the panel).The power board is going out.ALSO holding down the Input and Menu buttons afterward will give you some diagnostic information via 2 sets of blinking indicator lights.

You may very well have issues with capacitors on this set being that it is or very similar to the V26 chassis. Since I have spare test lamps laying around, I would normally try that first. If the lamp still would not stay lit, I would then suspect the electrical chassis (capacitors). When I suspect the chassis, I can usually verify it by pulling it out and partially disassemble it and find blown capacitors

I don't understand FUBR.
The problem sounds like the A1 voltage has gone low value giving poor video.
Check the HV controls. BE CAREFUL!!!!!

If what you see is a green line or lines on a black screen, it is the Green CRT failing. There is no real good fix for this. Sony does not support these set very much. It would require sending the Green CRT and Coupler assembly to Sony so they can mount a new CRT on the Coupler. The cost of doing this and still having 2 other CRT's that can fail in the same way makes it really a no fix.
You would be money ahead to replace it with a LCD or LED product.
I hope this helps,

Sony KP-65WV700... | Answered on Dec 10, 2010

Most likely it is the green CRT that is failing. Unfortunately Sony does not support these models much anymore. What they require is to send the CRT with the Optic Coupler to them so they can mount a new green CRT to the Coupler then send it back to you. For the cost and time it takes to do this I recommend you replace the set with a LCD, LED, flat screen set.
I hope this helps,

Hello, It has been my experience that once you replace any one tube of a CRT projection tube TV, the CRT that has been replaced will have more emission and it will reflect in the picture quality, I mean that there will be more definition, brightness, contrast in the blue images in the overall picture than the red and green, it will also show up as excessive in the overall gray scale adjust.
