Question about Sony KP-53S35 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Big screen troubles....

Hi, i have a sony 53" model #kp-53s35 that was new in 1997. it will turn on for just 15-20 seconds just fine, then it gets a bright blue screen for a few seconds and sounds like it has shut off. but just the picture is off. it is still on with the stereo light on, but no sound or picture. if you turn it off and back on again it goes to the blue screen right off and then goes off again. what could this be? and what do you think it will run to fix it? (ballpark). thanks for your time, gregg

    well.....hummm,
    it started running fine this afternoon for some reason. it has been on and watched for several hours now. what gives now? why would this be????

  • gregg trautner Apr 18, 2007

    well i got up this morning, flipped it on and it goes to a blue screen with sound. if you turn it off for a few seconds and then back on, it will get a picture and stay on for a while. then it goes to a blue screen and then sounds like it shuts down again. but it is still on. just now picture or sound. turn it off and back on again and it's fine. sometimes you have to turn it off and on again several times, but then it's good for the day as long as you dont turn it off. or the whole process starts over again. what do you make of that? seems if the crt was bad or shorted it would stay bad.

It is either going to be a shorted blue CRT (picture tube) or a driver board for it. I suspect the CRT itself.

    Probably an intermittent short within the blue CRT then. It is a possibility that there was some particles within the cathode of the blue CRT that internal arcing sometimes will clear itself up and remove those particles.

I have a Sony KP-53S35 53 in. Rear Projection Television, the picture is very distorted from the top center of the sceen. the convergence lines will not completely line up. how do i correct this?


This model uses two convergence chips---likely one is bad but both would have to be replaced and the set adjusted.

It involves some soldering so if you are up to that let me know.

I have a Sony KP-53S35 53 inch Rear Projection TV connected to a Directv Receiver. The TV does turn on, but the screen goes blank and VIDEO 1 is displayed. It will stay on, but will continue to do this. ...


Hi,
Press any channel button on tv remote to switch its input source as TV to watch tv channels.
As you said, screen shows Video-1 display that means tv is set on input-1 that need to be changed, press channel button on remote or tv front to shift it on tv channels mode.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

My Sony KP-53S35 turns on, shows a blue screen, turns off


It sounds like the blue CRT (picture tube) is failing. The part number for this is 8-733-575-25 but you will need a technician to replace it for you as there is mechanical and electrical alignment to with with it. At that point it probably isn't cost effective to repair the TV. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you.

KP-53s35 with xbox 360


No problem at all, with one precaution, if you have to pause the game for more than 30 seconds SHUT THE TV OFF.Heres a good example, middle of a hard stage and it`s time for dinner, do the following : pause the xbox, turn tv off, go eat dinner, come back in & turn tv on, unpause xbox and life is good, don`t have to start the game over, no damage or harm to the tv. I do this to my 53" Hitachi everyday and I`m a tv tech with 29 years in the trade,enjoy the xbox on your big screen, BMW Rider
