Sony Wega KP 46WT520 - Flickers Green

Good Day,

This TV occasionally flickers to a green screen. It will stay green for a time - then it will go back to normal.

This TV was manufactured in 2004.

Will replacing the lamp help?

Thank you for your assistance.

EVERYONE CALL SONY- SONY HAS EXTENDED ALL OF OUR WARRANTIES. i have this same problem with my 60" wega. i called sony and they explained to me that the problem was the optical light box. it cost a grip to fix even for them...so instead of fixing the problem they offered me the best true flats they had at way less than the actually price. i bought a 46" bravia for less than 550 including tax. i still have my 60" but until i get it fixed on my own this 46" will definitely do. i hope this helps you all

needs convergence chips, stk392-570, and possibly one or more blown picofuses, you probably need a tv repairman, extensive soldering required.

Projection TV keeps shutting down


Good Day;

Sounds like you have a bad green picture tube that has failed. To check this out; remove front speaker grill, remove small panel, you will see three CRT's (pictue tubes) sticking down, remove the little board on the middle tube then restore power. If TV stays on more then likely the CRT is bad but not always the driver on board could also be bad, check voltages.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

The TV shows light green ring line on the screen.


Take off the speaker grill and the particle board just behind it. You'll find a block with six knobs. The 3 bottom knobs can be adjusted ever so slightly to fix your problem. Do it very slowly. You wan to adjust the center knob for green. Turn it until the lines go away. But again, do it very slowly. You're adjusting the voltage to the green tube. Do it too fast and you can damage it.

if they are good then the picture tubes would need to be replaced, but since they are no longer available it realy wouldn't matter much would it.
