Question about Sony KP-57HW40 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Free big screen, is it worth it to fix?

I got my tv for free recently; Model# KP57HW30. When I turn it on the screen is blue, the video signal shows in the corner and i can still switch inputs. After a few seconds the screen will fade out and and the set will totally shut off. I took off the back panel and checked it out. All three guns come on, the green one is almost immediately fuzzy and dims then shuts off, followed by both red and blue shutting off. The red light on the front blinks eight times. What could my problem be and can I fix it easily myself?
Thanx,
Jason

This could be a problem with the Blue CRT it archs or overdrives intermittently. I would have a technician test the set and give you an estimate - if it's the CRT it's usually not worth repair- but it could be video or a screen voltage related problem. It's worth the estimate.

Blue Screen and TV shuts off


Yes, you are correct on the phrasing. The CRT's were a common issue with these units and all three must be replaced as sooner or later the green will follow the other two CRT's. It was a great model and had a beautiful picture when operating normally. The CRT's are costing about 200 each for rebuild as the green and blue are mostly no longer available. Your repair cost are going to approach $1000.00 or more.
