Sony Rear Projection TV Bad Red Gun?

This question isn't very specific and I don't have the model number so I apologize for that. A friend of ours has a Sony rear projection tv that the red gun died/doesn't work properly. We were offered to have the TV free if we can fix it. How do you know it IS the red gun and how much do they usually run? Is it even worth fixing or are we better off just buying a brand new tv? Thanks :)

What does red flashing light on front of tv mean?


It may be the lamp light indicating a lamp has failed--model listed here does use a lamp.

Also look at the blinks to see if a specific number then a pause and repeats, if that then that is a error code.

The Problem you are having is a Cathode to Grid Short in the Red CRT,When it Shorts the screen will Go all Bright Red and shut Down,The Best fix Would Be to Replace the Defective CRT (GUN)

The tv turns on but then shuts down. will not stay on, any ideas why?


If its Sony KDF-42WE655 TV then it has self diagnostic feature and if it gets any problem inside, its red light will start blinking in specific numbers to show an error code.
Let me know how many times its red standby light blinking between 3 seconds interval.

No Red color at all. The convergence feature does not work either. Lots of green and blue RCA Model D52W59


Red color gun has failed, which will make the picture over saturated with the other two colors(blue,green) the bad news is the three color guns need to be replace in a set(all at the same time) because if you only replace the red it will over saturate the older blue, green guns then your picture will be mostly red.Unfortunently in most cases it's not worth the investment, better off to purchase a new tv. Good luck !

Red convergence problem - Mitsubishi 65


It sounds like your red gun might be close to going, we had the same problem our tv. The red was off and couldnt really be adjusted but the others were alright. We were told that the red gun was nearing the end of its life and it could cost upwards of $1000 to fix, so we just got a new tv. i would suggest having a tv tech come out and look just to make sure, but thats wut it sounds like.

Sony -kp65wv600


I got this TV for FREE from a guy posting it on craigslist because he saw "BLUE SWIRL LINES" also knows as "Retrace Line" on the screen and he went to several repair people and got high repair costs so he was giving it away for free, but i found a guide that tells you how to adjust the tv to make the blue or green or red lines go away, aparantly the line show up because the voltage on the color ray gun tubes that get out of adjustment. Here is the Link to the REPAIR GUIDE. http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html

Red lines


That sounds like a bad convergence board, they cause red lines like that when they go bad. Lemme see if I can find some specifics on your model, and getting parts for it.
