Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Sony tv I have an older Sony Trinitron TV that doesn't work unless you first rap your knuckles on it's side a couple of times. It seems as though it's taking longer and longer for it to work properly. As Marvin Gaye would often ask, what's going on? Is this something that can be fixed, or is the tube finally going to that tv repair shop in the sky?

    It is likely a loose connection, either a plug is not fully inserted or a poor solder connection on one of the circuit boards. Dangerous voltages exist within this TV; if you want to attempt repairs, I could make some recommendations, but it probably isn't a good idea.

The tv made a pop sound and now it wont turn on ans both green and red buttons are flashing ..please help


I had the same problem guys! This is what I did:

My T.V. wouldn't turn on. The standby light was flashing six times, then four, then seven...I called Sony and they told me to unplug it for a couple of minutes, then try it again...didn't work....BUT, I have found a solution:

Try unpluging your T.V. for 4 hours+, then turn it back on. Worked for me! It's called a "hard reset" by sony. I had my T.V. unplugged for the whole day though.

I have a 40 sony trinitron tv once turned off wont come back on


The "D" Boards have been big problem causers in these Set's. Unfortunately they are not available from Sony ( At lease not lately),
and the old ones have needed to be sent to Sony for them to be refurbished. I would estimate the repair to be approx 650.00 to 750.00. This includes shipping charges, the refurbishing, labor, and service call. Having a Sony Authorized Service Facility come out, verify and send it off to Sony is the only way I know of getting it done correctly. Typical turn around time is 21/2 to 4 weeks.
I hope this helps,

I have an LG LCD TV (LG 37LG5000 37IN). I also have an older DVD Home Theatre System (SONY DAV-DZ100). It seems that the surround system works well with DVDs but I cannot get the sound to work with DIGITAL...


It works fine if you plug the surround system SCART lead into the AV2 input. I believe this is a 'smart' scart plug (same as SONY but it is not mentioned as in the literature). The AV1 is only good for inputs NOT outputs as well.

Sony kf50we610 Red Color Problem


Uh Oh! Your light engine has warped a little from overheating and is distorting the picture. This is one of the models they are having trouble with.
Here is the lawsuit website: http://esupport.sony.com/sxrdsettlement

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with Sony and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
Hope ya fix it!

My sony tv doesnt turn on.


Hi, The blinking lights is an indicator of an internal fault. On some Sony sets, 4 blinks indicate a problem where the video is muted due to a component fault. Since this involve opening the set and doing electronics diagnosis and possibly component/board replacement, you may be better off seeking the services of a qualified TV repair professional. Hope this be of assistance/idea. Post back should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
