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

1 Answer

Sony 57" KP-57WS500 went from blue to black screen, with audio

I have a 6yr old 57" Sony rear projection, model KP-57WS500, that has had problems when turned on of the screen turning blue then shutting itself down. After manually turning it off and on it would return to a normal screen after a few minutes. Last night it started out the same except when it shut itself off it came back on and started popping and went to a white background for a couple of seconds then to black, audio still there. Would like to know what the problem is and also if this is worth the cost to fix? Thanks

The screen on my Sony wide projection tv is turning blue after a few minutes. can you help? the model # is KP-57WS500


This is a typical bad CRT. The blue CRT part number is 8-733-647-25 but they are no longer available. It is not uncommon for this eventually to happen to the other CRT's as well. The only fix is to have a technician pull the defective CRT and have it sent to a company called VDC for rebuilding.

My tv too had a blue screen problem. Then it started to shut down after staying on for less than a minute. I thought that I would with a huge repair bill but I followed the directions at this link: http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html and now my tv works perfectly.

Sounds like a conergence circuit failure, probably a couple of AMPs and a few discreet components. Probably 250-300 repair
