Question about Sony KP-57WV600 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
After about a year, the TV started showing green arches, from the top of the screen they drooped down and from the bottom they arched up. They were not prominent but really noticeable when the picture was dark. Recently it started to flash green on the screen and will eventually shut itself off. I removed the wooden panel in the back to take a look and on the back of the green projector, the card has a light. when the TV flashes green the light comes on. It seems the card on the back of the tube might be faulty but wanted to verify this prior to trying to replace it. Has anyone else seen this problem? any input would be appreciated
If you see a neon light in the crt board and it lights up is because the green picture tube is arking inside,the light is supposed to do that and is why is there,the only way to correct the problem is by replacing the picture tube and it can be costly sometimes,there is another way but this will not take care of the problem for good,it might go away for a while but it might return,is hard to tell if it might work,what you need to do is lift the set from the ground about 3 inches and drop it,sometimes just by doing it once it works ,other times it takes more than once,do not over do it or something else might break,is an option you dont have to take and you still have the option to replace the tube.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.

Testimonial: "Worked like a charm for about 6 months then started doing it again, guess I will be replacing the tube or giving it to my soon to be son-in-law"
