I have a KDP-57XBR2 that will not light up or turn on
Recently I tried to turn on the TV and I heard clicking from the TV when I pressed the power button on the remote. I then unplugged the main power and waited 60 seconds and tried again. After pressing the main power button on the TV, The standby light would blink for six or seven times and then remain illuminated on. The TV will still not turn on and no picture.
Someone told me that I just need change he lamp. Is that correct? Is that expensive? Is it a difficult procedure for someone like me who has limited electronic experience

Replacing the dlp lamp is pretty easy actually. Many vendors come with instructions when you buy the lamp. not to mention there are many tutorials online that can show you how to do it. I suggest buying the lamp from DLP Lamps.com, good customer service and each order even comes with rubber gloves!

Try going to
and type KDP-57XBR2 in the search catalogue box.
There are three service documents for you there. They take PayPal or credit card.
I have used them before and the documents can usually be downloded within a day if not immediately.
Hope this helps.
The fail safe circuit is protecting your TV You have a voltage drop or open citcuit in one of the components eiuther in the power supply or on the video display boards. Dont keep truning it on in the hope that it will right itself. The opposite may be the case. In fact it can catch fire if you force it to keep trying to fire up... it literally will.
Get a tech to examine it and effect repairs, these problems are not DIY if you have no skills in reading circuit diagrams and handling high tension power and radiation ( which are both present in these TV's.
I had the same problem in blue. I took the right front speaker cover off (pops off) and the access panel on the right side 2 - 4 screws. In the upper right corner is a black plastic box with 2 rows of 3 adjustment screws. All I did was turn one of the "screen" screws (not the "focus" screws). Hope this helps. May only be a temporary fix, but good luck...
I had the same problem about a 8 months ago. I searched online and found that there is a problem with one of the color guns. They need to be replaced. I don't remember where I found the information, but there is a number or something to call for this problem. I think that my authorized sony repair man knew of the problem, there are other models that have the same problem. Anyway, sony replaced all three guns in my tv FREE of charge, and my tv was no longer under warranty. They did all repairs and fixed my tv.
