You have a shorted blue CRT (picture tube)

The problem is that these TVs are known to have defective CRTs but Sony can no longer supply them. There is a company in Texas that rebuilds them, but its an expensive repair.

Its a shame that Sony has not been forced to take care of their customers. I've replaced hundreds of these CRTs and seen hundreds more after the supply ran out.

Sony knew about this issue way back in 2002 but only resolved complaints for a limited time and did nothing to notify owners whom they could easily indentify by serial number.

Let's hope we don't give up our auto industry or we'll soon see the same behavior there.

    As I indicated, the CRTs are no longer available. The only way to service these TVs is to remove the old CRTs and send them to Texas to be rebuilt. The company is called Video Display Co.

II get sound for about 15 sec. but no picture and then shuts off


kp57ws50_57_in_rear_projection_hd_228277.jpg Problem with Sony KP-57WS520 57 in. Rear Projection

This model is really prone to one problem in particular--screen even briefly comes up bright red, green or blue and set shuts down.

15 seconds from turn on front power light should blink as set checks several things internally---if something wrong it does not let picture show.

Usually after shut down or failure power light will blink a sequence of blinks but not always depending on problem.

Did you see the screen at all go red, green, or blue before?

the more you tell me the better I can help

Sony wide screen projection tv model kp-57wv600 problem. Sound with no picture. Stanby red light blinks seven times? What parts do I need to repair the problem. Thanks ,Gary


I found this solution from SONY's website.

The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.


I hope this helps.

that's very hard to fix, you need to monitor every test voltage pin if is in normal. try also replace crystal capacitor thats one monitor with the jungle IC.

Let me know when TV warms up does it go to standby?
If yes, standby light would be blinking, let me know how many times it blinks?
And if TV does not go to standby mode, does picture remain with red tone?
