Question about Sony KP-65WS500 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

SONY KP-46C65 PROJECTION TV

We've had this TV with no service call and no problem for several years. However, the other day, when I turned the TV on, red lines (like rays) all across the screen showed up, followed by a strong burnt smell. I turned off the TV and unplugged it.

It looks like it blew a tube or two - any suggestions, or similar experience?

I called a few repair companies and they told me there are 3 tubes on this TV - red, green and blue. The red tube alone costs around $400.

If one part cost this much, it may not be advisable to fix the old TV.

Any suggestions?

Why wont my samsung dvd-vr357 play blu ray disks


Educated guess is you need a blu ray player. I have several very expensive Pioneer Elite DVD players and they cannot play blu ray. Blu ray is a multi level glorified DVD which you need at least a blu ray player to play in almost all cases.

You can play dvds on a blue ray but not the reverse in most cases. If you play a dvd on a blu ray player it kicks the video up to HD for the DVD.

Yes! you are right, this almost sounds like a captions problem, check the DVD/VCR Combo menu, if it has captions turn it off using your remote.

Try power-cycling your TV (e.g. turn it off and unplug it for several minutes). If the TV then powers on, reset to factory defaults. If the problem persists, your TV will require repairs. Service can be obtained by calling 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S. or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada.

Screen shakes / jumps vertically on my Sony KP-51HW40


The jitter is called a vertical sync problem. The problem is on the "A" board. It can be replaced or rebuilt but will be quite expensive to service.

make sure the audio (the red and the white plugs) are in the OUT on the Player ... and IN on the tv.
also make sure the tv is set to the AV IN mode when playing the dvd.
Otherwise check the TV set up and make sure the speakers are turned on.
