Question about Sony Televison & Video

Open Question

My 2003 Sony KP-57WV600 decided to black out. Sound if there, but no picture. The three lense lights come on when power is applied and go out very quickly. What could be the cause?

You have a shorted blue CRT (picture tube)

The problem is that these TVs are known to have defective CRTs but Sony can no longer supply them. There is a company in Texas that rebuilds them, but its an expensive repair.

Its a shame that Sony has not been forced to take care of their customers. I've replaced hundreds of these CRTs and seen hundreds more after the supply ran out.

Sony knew about this issue way back in 2002 but only resolved complaints for a limited time and did nothing to notify owners whom they could easily indentify by serial number.

Let's hope we don't give up our auto industry or we'll soon see the same behavior there.

SOURCE: Blue to Black screen on Sony KP-57WV600

Rowdyroddy,

Thanks you so much for this info.

I had the same problem with my Sony KW-57wv600. Blue screen turns black after a few seconds, and then standby light flashes seven times.

I called a local TV technician, and described problem. I was told it would not be cost effective to fix. After reviewing the "simple" instructions given on www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html I figured I had nothing to lose.

10 minutes to remove front panel, a "very slight" turn of a screw, and TV worked again perfectly. I could not believe it!

Thank you so much for your help!

SHAME ON SONY FOR NOT POSTING THIS FIX ON THEIR WEBSITE! SHAME ON THE TECHNICIAN AT SONY WHICH INSISTED A SERVICE TECHNICIAN WAS REQUIRED.

I have always been a fan of Sony, swearing by Sony products exclusively. After this experience, I am now forced to consider some other options when purchasing electronics in the future.

SOURCE: Sony wide screen projection tv model kp-57wv600.

I found this solution from SONY's website.

The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.


I hope this helps.

SOURCE: sony kp-57wv600 tv turns on

KP57WV600...
1. remove 5 screws from behind each speaker
2. grasp center panel at the bottom and "pop" forward. Swing upward, set front panel aside.
3. Remove center wooden panel.
4. Look for "black box" with six screws at the front of set. There is torque paint on screws.
5. (my set would go green before going black) I turned the center bottom screw (green) appx. 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clockwise.
Plugged in the TV and it works great now!
Happy TV Viewing!!!!

Cleaning the screen cover on my sony big screen


Hi,
To clean its front screen, you should not open front cover as its complicated procedure. just take off its back cover as its shown in picture and use air-blower to clean dust. Then use soft cotton cloth to clean its screen from internal and 3 bulbs / lenses (CRTs) and job is done.
Need further help, let me know.
Bye.

No picture or sound - Error code with Six blinks


SIX Blinks---No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206
