Question about Sony KP-46WT510 46" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Sony warms up - picture slowly becomes dark

Have had a Sony KP46WT510 for about 4 years. Now after it has been running for several minutes, the picture will progressively darken. Bright scenes and white background images continue to be well illuminated, but darker or muted images become almost black with very little brightness or contrast. When it is turned back on following a cool down period a normal picture is displayed and the cycle repeats. I've performed the standard resets, refocus and confirmed the picture and brightness settings. Any ideas? thanks! Scott

You are losing screen voltage or whats called the boast voltage most likely. This is probably being caused by a bad capacitor in the sweep power supply. You will need to get a service manual as well as use an ESR type capacitor meter to find the bad capacitor(s). Good Luck

Picture brightens then darkens


Trying with a DVD will rule the tuners in the set in or out and also suggest a setting in the set or a box if used is causing this issue.

Picture is very blue, especially in dark scenes.


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.

Picture darkens automatically at random times during use. Active Contrast and DNR make no difference. It looks like the TV is trying to compensate for bright scenes by lowering contrast and brightness.


go here and complain-if enough of us complain they will do something-this unit shgould not fail after a few years of use

Negative effect on Bright areas of Monitor/TV


Try demagitizing the moniter. In the monitor's menu it will have a picture of a magnic , select it. Sometimes it is listed as degrous. After selecting this, your screen will seem to spin then settle. If your still have problems, a magnic may have come close to the moniter while it was being stored, and that will ruin the picture.
