Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Sony KP-43t75 - Front panel buttons and IR sensor stopped working

I touched the channel changing button on the front when I was loaded up with static electricity. There was a rather large shock, and now the tv turns on and off by the front panel power button. Picture and sound are fine, but none of the other buttons and the remote control does not work anymore. I have the service manual and the tv apart, but I cannot isolate the problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated! - Rich.

How I change the video input on my kp-65wv600


There are a couple of ways to cycle through the inputs on the KP-65WV600. The front panel TV/Video button will cycle through the inputs. (This is near the bottom of the button cluster between the Volume - and Flash Focus buttons.) On the original remote, you use also use the TV/Video button; it's above the 1 in the number pad section of the remote. For a third party remote, you will need to find the code that will enable a Source or Input button to cycle through the inputs on the TV.

These are shown in the manual which is available from the product support page: https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=KP65WV600&template_id=1®ion_id=1&tab=manuals#/manualsTab . (This is the Manuals, Specs, Warranty tab.) The direct link to the manual is currently https://docs.sony.com/release//KP65WV600.PDF . See page 14 (page 15 of the PDF) for the front panel buttons; see page 48 (49 of the PDF) for the remote control buttons.

I hope this helps.

Sony kp-53xbr45 please let me know step by step how to enter convergence service thank you


Hello,

To enter into the convergence service of your sony, follow the steps below;
  1. Press "Menu" on the remote control. Use the up- or down-arrow button to move the cursor to "Setup" and then press "Return."
  2. Use the up or down arrow to move the cursor to "Convergence" and press "Return." This will bring up the convergence-adjustment screen.
  3. Press the up or down arrow to move the cursor to the line you want to adjust (either vertical or horizontal for red and blue) and press "Return."
  4. Press the up or down arrow again to move that line until it converges with the center green line and press "Return."
  5. Repeat to adjust the other lines until all three lines converge and are seen as a white cross.
  6. Press "Menu" to exit the convergence menu and return to the original screen.
You can as well follow these steps;
  1. Press the "Power" button to turn your TV on.
  2. Wait at least 30 minutes before you adjust the convergence in your television. This allows your TV ample time to warm up before you make the adjustment.
  3. Turn your TV to a cable channel or to an antenna channel with a picture that you can see. A music channel with a static shot of music notes isn't the kind of picture you need. Instead, look for a picture like what you would see on a movie, sitcom or drama.
  4. Press the "Flash Focus" button located in the front panel on your TV. You may need to open a hidden compartment on the front of your TV to access this button. The convergence will repair itself automatically after you hit this button. It may take several minutes.
Any of the two processes are detailed steps on how to enter your convergence service.

Take care

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. ...

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.

Sony KP-43T75 color repair


This link has the instructions on how to fix this problem and other similar problems. You have nothing to lose, so I recommend that you try it.

http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html

This works with the two other colors, blue and green also. Not all models of Sony Projection TVs have the red, green, and blue pots in the same order as the picture that is listed on this link, so you may want to google search for your model's service manual. The service manual can also help you be able to remove the cover for your particular model of TV. I was able to find the service manual for my model, and sure enough, the order of the pots are reversed on mine, so I would have been adjusting the wrong color. Read all of the comments on this link too, because you can find other helpful tips and may even find someone with the same model of TV as you that gives more specific instructions for your model.

You may also find your model's service manual here:

I hope this helps you!

Fare well. :)

Tv blinks out when front buttons are pushed. model#ws-65511


If the TV is turning on and working regularly, but power button does not shut down and buttons on TV do not work, then it is a faulty touch control (button) board on TV.

If instead the TV does not even turn on, then tv is on protection mode, in that case it can be any internal fault.

If instead the problem is with remote buttons, then it is either a faulty remote or a faulty IR sensor.

Unwanted text on screen


You sure the graphics are being produced by the TV? If you are using a cable box, it may be coming from there. The other pssibility is a stuck button on the front panel. That can cause displays to come up without warning and won't go away until you get the button unstuck. Try wiggling all the front panel buttons.

Check to make sure the channel down button is not stuck. If it is not the button is probably defective. Mits has had a lot of problems with the buttons.

Reducing voltage for Sony KP-51HW40


G2 = screen...On the screen controls behind the front grill, behind the hardboard. 6 pots, 2 rows of 3 pots. 3 for focus and 3 for screens. 1 for each of the the red, green and blue guns/crts.
To adjust: Run set, change to black screen with tv/video button. Dial each screen clockwise untill you see a color. Then counterclockwise slowly untill that color goes black, then stop. Do this for all 3 screen controls.
If you need to adjust the focus then bring up lettering. I use the QVC channel for this. Focus is done by eye.

Remote stopped work for my kp-61hs10


Sounds to me like a problem in the tv, not the remote. A short maybe, or a bad connection somewhere.
