Question about Sony KP-61HS10 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture flashing on and off

Sony KP-61HS10 61 in. TV I have a problem – the picture looks normal...then all of a sudden the screen flashes black and then back on over and over again. The TV stays on as the sound can still be heard. Initial problem noticed on weak TV channels (using cable box), now weak signal channels are worse, but even strong channels and DVD player are starting to flash. Removed power to reset TV, did not fix problem.

    I have a Mitsubishi HD 1080 Projection tv and it is doing the same thing. For the past few months it has turned black and white every now and then. When I turn it off and on, the color returns. Now it is flashing regularly between a color picture, a black screen, and a swirled color screen. Any ideas what is wrong? Do I toss it or repair it? Help please.

    one source said the problem was due to a crt going bad, low voltage, and required replacing 1 or more of the 3 crt's. At 300 to 400 each plus labor, not a viable fix for an 8 year old tv, even if it was a great one. just ordered a 67" samsung rear projection.

Your Sony TV needs Screen (G2) volts adjustment and I'm not sure that you can do that or not by yourself.
If you are confident and know electronic stuff repair, then let me know to guide you OR call local TV tech to perform adjustment.
Thanks.

Sony kp-61hs10 tv, has sound but picture goes black after 3 min.


I just had the same problem. If your lucky it might be a free 5 minute fix. The five light flashes mean impropper current. I took the front grill off, then behind that is another black cover, I took that off and noticed the circuit boards COVERED in dust. I then took an air can duster and blew off all the dust... works like new. No more flashes and in an out picture. The collection of dust was interfereing with the electrical current.

Screen Flashing


In a Sony TV, the most common cause of the picture flashing on and off is a weak picture tube. When the set was new, it took about 5 to 10 seconds for the picture to appear once the set was turned on. This is normal. If you have been noticing that it has been taking longer and longer to first appear, this is the clear signal that one of the picture tubes is getting tired. There is a circuit called IK Blanking that monitors each picture tube and adjusts them as the tubes age, so you always see a good picture. When one of the tubes has weakened so much that it cannot produce enough brightness in the picture, the circuit shuts the picture off completely. I guess Sony does not want you to see a tired, dull picture. When the tube is right on the edge of being too weak to keep the picture on, the picture will flash on and off, and it will also take much longer beofre it first turns on. The good news is that the Sony picture tubes always respond beautifully to reactivation (CRT Recharge) but you will need a qualified tech familiar with Sony projection sets to handle that repair for you.
