Question about Televison & Video
After my seven year old Sony rear projection KP61V85 warms up (about two or three minutes after turning it on) the color begins to flicker on and off. The black and white portion of the picture is clear, but the color seems to create ''bands'' horizonally across the screen (each band about 10% of the screen, alternating black/white and color) and seems to flicker in cycles.
When I turn the TV off for a couple of minutes and then turn it back on it works fine for a couple of minutes then begins to flicker again. The longer I allow it to cool down, the longer it takes to begin malfunctioning. I have searched all of the ''Forums'' and cannot find the same problem or a solution. What is your guess???
I went to the Sony support page for your model.(link below)http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=KP61V85&LOC=3
They are undergoing maintenance right now, so I couldn't find any answers for you. I would check back with the website to see if they can help you. If the Standby timer light flashes, you may need to have the TV repaired. There is a "Hot Topics" section for "How to troubleshoot television picture issues" that will probably be very helpful to you.
