Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDP-65XBR2 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Green screen I've been told I need a new "Picture tube" for my Sony KDP65XBR2 rear projection HDTV, however it was recommended that I replace all three RGB tubes for accurate color balance, this suggestion from the authorized Sony repair center (TOPS) electronics. I contacted the MFG of the Tubes, who tell me that I DO NOT need all three to get an accurate representation of color), the repair center tells me that the Blue tube is not longer available (HDTV is 6 Years old) I paid $6000.00 for it, a thousand a year sounds a little iffy. The manufacturer of the tubes (for most projection TV's) Says they are all available for $152.00 each. Is it worth repairing, and if so do you recommend buying spare tubes before they are really discontinued??

The picture will be okay one minute and then it will go green off and on


It seems green picture tube in this Sony KP51WS510 rear projection became defective and causing this problem. Replacement of green picture tube will fix this issue but it would be costly fix and professional will do it as it requires lots of adjustments after tube replacement.
Please check with local vt repair shop and ask an estimate of repair.
Thanks.

You have a bad blue picture tube. If you replace it the red and green will be weak and probably go sooner than you think. Everytime I had to replace a tube in a sony projo tv i had to replace all 3 picture tubes at the same time. It's very expensive if you don't have any type of warranty coverage.
