Sony projection tv 5 years old

I have a 5 year old Sony projection tv. When I turn it on it has great color then after a few seconds, maybe minutes, it turns to blue. I can see the images barely. The sound is good. After I turn it off several times (10-20) the color will stay, but today it goes to blue.

Maybe as simple as:

1. Convergence Problem - look at CONVERGENCE GALLERY . Maybe Intermittent IC causing blue shading. If not then ...

2. Corroded Green or Red CRT socket pins, or CRT board defective, causes intermittent R or G, then Blue dominates.

3. Blue CRT with internal short, blue dominates intermittently.

Most likely convergence.

Please confirm that your model is KP-57WV700. Also, have you noticed any pattern with when the problem occurs? Is it worse when "warmed up" or cold?

Thanks,
Dan

A spent bulb will cause the whole set to go off. If you have not changed the bulb in all of these years, first you are lucky, and second that is probably the cause of your problem.
