Question about Sony KP-65WS500 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

String Art 2

Sorry posted this to the wrong location before. I have 5 Year old KP65WS500. The best way to describe the issue is that there is horizontal string art at the top third of the picture. There is a picture although the quality is poor. There are Red, Green and blue colors visable. Any ideas?

    Thank You

    Not a Repair Tech just looking to keep repair costs under control.

    Am now trying to figure out what an IC is.

  • jnkfiles33 Feb 14, 2009

    Thanks Again

    So it would appear that the repairs should run aprox.

    Service Call $109.00 (Quoted from Tech)

    Parts $ 62.00 ($31.00 x 2)

    Aprox $ 171.00

    Allow some upside movement for tax and such and it looks like around a $200.00 repair and not a $500.00 repair.

Can caps isue cause tv not to come on at ll. no lights no click sounds nothing

Defective capacitors can cause all kinds of faults, so, yes, your capacitors could be the cause of the fault you describe. Replacing such capacitors is not always easy, because manufacturers sometimes use multilayer circuit boards where the contact is in an inner layer of the PCB. However this is not always the case. If he PCB on which the defective capacitors are located can be removed it may be a relatively simple job for someone skilled in the art of soldering to replace them. Otherwise, it is a job for a professional TV repair technician. It may be possible to replace the card with another, or to take it a Samsung service centre for repair. You are likely to discover that it is easier or cheaper to buy a new TV,

There may be other problems with your TV that is causing it not to turn on.

Hi, i have a sony 43ht20 bought new the year they came out... 2002 i believe. it ran great for a few years then bam, wouldnt turn on. ordered the manual and found the problem to be a 5v undervoltage on the...

the fuse or fuses that will be bad are on the G board which is located to the left of the tv that stands vertically. on the D board the 2 convergence amplifiers are screwed into the 2 large aluminum heat sinks that have the thin metal fins part number STK392-560 can use STK392-570. most repair shops mine included charge around $300.00 for repair if you have soldering skills then the component parts replacement is the cheapest way to go. the entire Dboard runs about $215 nowadays and the convegence amps run around $40-50 a piece plus $5 for the pico fuses.

I have a kp65ws500 that turns on for about 5

These sets have a history of bad picture tubes-the tubes are only available on a rebuild basis and very expensive.

there is an option:

v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} w\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} .shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);} Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} SONY SCREEN ADJUSTMENT:

Here is what you need to do.

1.) You need to remove the entire plastic piece below the front of the screen. You most likely will find 3 screws on either side in back that you have to remove.

2.) The grill will not come out easy, pull from one side and then when it starts to come loose from the other side(there are several plastic pegs that hold it in.) Then from the bottom pull out( most of these sets have square plastic tabs at the top that tuck in.)

3.) With the grill removed locate the inspection plate behind it (it usually has 6 screws.) You will have to tilt the grill to the left and on its side as several cables are connected to it--they are held in place with trash bag like ties that you can release to get some room.

4.) With the inspection plate removed you will see a fairly small (about 3 inch square) BLACK PLASTIC BLOCK WITH SIX CONTROLS-usually they are marked with whiteout so someone can tell if they have been adjusted.

5.) You need to look very close at the block with a flashlight----usually the top three controls are FOCUS--don't touch those.
The lower three are usually marked Screen and if you look very close you will see b, g, r(blue green red)

6.)Usually the GREEN will be in the middle.

7.) Once you locate the green screen control have the set on and turn it down--if the set is shutting down you may have only a few seconds to try to turn it down---usually to the left with the Screen control.

8.) Best way to do this if the set is on is on a video input clip_image001.gif with nothing connected--you turn the green screen down until the set stays on and then very slowly turn it up until you see a slightly green screen with or without diagonal trace lines----turn it down slowly until the Blue screen and trace lines just disappear.

Let me know if you get it to work--Like I said if it is shutting down you may have to slowly turn the screen down a few times to get it to stay on.

The screen is showing a ghost or double picture

Does the picture look 3d? colors out of place and or skewed?

If it does, go into the customer menu with the Sony remote and select convergence----if red or blue are warped and will not move in some direction--you have a common problem---CONVERGENCE.

Confirm model number and tell me if it is 3D like picture.

I can if it is tell you what is needed to fix it--I am here to help people and I do this here for free.

Sony KP65WS500 5 blinks

1st set Brightness and Contrast settings to 50% at tv menu.
You need to cover 2 CRTs with any thing like thick paper while adjusting 3rd CRT.
For example, lets adjust Red CRT G2 volts, Select audio-video input 1 and cover green and blue lens with paper note-book and rotate Screen control up to level where you see retrace lines on projection screen, now decrease screen volts (G2) so retrace lines disappear and projection screen should be blank.
Now do same process with green and blue adjustment while other lenses should be covered.
Im not sure I conveyed it to you properly or not because English is not my 1st language.
Thank you.
