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?

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.

Sony KP-61XBR48 Service Menu Item Keeps Changing


the only thing to do is pick which video mode you want (tv, vid1,2,3,etc) and then turn off and then immediately on for an hour or two and then the picture will come on. I,ve heard it's an internal transformer problem.
