20 Most Recent Sony KP-57WV600 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television - Page 4 Questions & Answers


The first thing to do is to rescan for channels. If for some reason the channel memory got wiped out, there could be no other "available" channels to change to. The "flicker" you see is the TV changing to the same channel. Try the rescan and update this if that does not resolve the problem. Let's eliminate the simple stuff first. If the rescan DOES resolve the problem, please update this with that information as well and we will try to find out what cleared out the channel memory.


Thanks,
Dan

Try going into the video section of your menu, and pressing RESET on your remote control. If this doesn't fix it, try your quick start guide for setting the convergence and focus.

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.

Let me know when TV warms up does it go to standby?
If yes, standby light would be blinking, let me know how many times it blinks?
And if TV does not go to standby mode, does picture remain with red tone?

You need a professional.
Stop using the TV until it is repaired.
Call the manufacturer to find you nearest authorized service center.

Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

There is not that much high voltage on the projection tubes

Pull the red annode lead from the flyback transformer
Careful not to touch the end of the red lead

Brush the lead across the metal frame that the crt was housed in and that should disapate the hv
If you are not sure it is gone then stick it on the metal again

Remember the tv mus be unpluged befor you attempt this

Good luck

see this
1. See the ugly red color bands on the television set? These can also occur in blue and green. We're going to fix these!

2. Front shot of the television. Their are two screw holes on the front of the unit near the edge of each side right next to the speaker grille.
2_sony_projection_tv_front_screw_locations.jpg

3. Close up shot of the screw hold. It is covered by a plastic cover that has two tabs holding it in. Carefully pry them out with your flat head screwdriver. Do not apply too much pressure or you can break the tabs off. Once the covers are removed, unscrew the two screws with a Philips screwdriver.
3_sony_projection_tv_repair_screws_1.jpg

4. To remove the cover, pull from the bottom of the front case and rotate towards you. Once you rotate it out, the top will disconnect and come loose. Do not pull it off, as there are cords attached. (see picture) Loosen the cables attached with the twist ties and set the front cover to the left side.
4_sony_projection_tv_cover_off.jpg

5. With the speaker grille and cover removed, you now need to remove the wood panel to expose the inner electronics on your Sony HD TV. To do this, remove the four Philips head screws from the panel. Then, pulling from the right, rotate the panel off and the electronics will be exposed.
5_projection_tv_cover_guns_tubes.jpg

6. This is a picture of the inner electronics of your Sony Rear-Projection High Definition television. The little black box towards the front of the unit is where we will concentrate our time as it is the control for the voltage & convergence adjustment.
6_voltage_projection_red_blue_green.jpg

7. When focused in on the controls, you want to concentrate on the bottom row for the voltage / ray gun projection adjustment. The colors are labeled below and from left to right are blue, green, and red. Choose the one that needs to be adjusted and turn ever so slightly with your Philips screwdriver to remove the lines. In my case, the red just needed to be turned 1/8 of a rotation to be back in adjustment. Do not turn to quickly or abruptly or you could possibly damage your TV by varying the voltage too quickly.
