Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directiKP-57HW40 Sony ..picture is blurry and gives me a - 2c07611.pngnvergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

The screen turns blue after about 2 minutes of turning on the TV


Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.

Hi,
Symptom shows tv got problem with green picture tube that need to be replaced.
Rear projection tv has 3 picture tubes, red-green-blue to make color picture.
Since its an old model so spare parts would hardly be available and local tv repair shop will help you to arrange required part, if they can.
Thanks.

The screen is redish in color and the sound doesn't work!


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. :)

P.S. You can also clean the mirrors and dry dust while you're in there which can help with blurriness and focus.
