Question about Sony KP-57HW40 57" Rear Projection Television
Intermitently, TV screen turns blue, then TV shuts off. Also, screen starting to go red now too. I've been told there could be a "short" that needs to be repaired on blue tube and other tubes...not sure I'm phrasing this correctly.Does this sound right? Is the TV worth fixing or should I just get a new one? TV is model Sony KP-57HW40 and is about 5 yrs old. Thanks! Mary Jane
Sony has a warranty extension on this until august 2008. They will pay for free to fix this problem.

Check the CRT board first then if you find it O.k. the picture tube is defective!

I had the same problem but now I have another this tv is garbage. Anyway your problem is free and easy. Pop off the two screw covers at the front bottom and unscrew. unscrew the next cover. There are six adjustments you need to turn the blue down a little bit. It is one of the bottom ones. Make sure you mark all original positions.

The solution here is of course to never buy sony again. After paying $3000 for this set and having the tubes go bad - Sony should reimburse or fix this set. I own one and the same problem is happening. This is a design flaw or manufacturing flaw and SONY should stand behind the product they make NEVER BUY SONY AGAIN. John

Yes, you are correct on the phrasing. The CRT's were a common issue with these units and all three must be replaced as sooner or later the green will follow the other two CRT's. It was a great model and had a beautiful picture when operating normally. The CRT's are costing about 200 each for rebuild as the green and blue are mostly no longer available. Your repair cost are going to approach $1000.00 or more.

Is this true , that Sony will cover the cost of repair, warranty extension until august 2008?
My Sony 51" kp-51hw40 has a blue screen then turns blank.
The sound is still ok. The diagnostic code is AKB 1 and HV 1. The Red LED on the font of the tv blinks 5 times.
Please help. I contacted Sony by e-mail and they only gave repair tv services in my area.
