My Sony KP-57WS500 TV has curved horizontal white lines. You only see them when there is something dark on the screen. Any ideas?


You have 3 CRTs inside of your TV that create image. Blue, Green and Red. Looks like one of them need adjustment due aging.
Remove front grille. Than remove center "shielding" piece held by 4-5 screws. Behind this cover you will find little black plastic box that have 6 rotating buttons on it. Take you time to study them. There is three columns and two rows. Columns represent color, rows - "Focus" or "Screen". You need to locate "Screen" row of three rotating buttons. They will be marked "B', "G", and "R" for colors accordingly. Turn on TV let it warm up and try to figure out witch color is dominating others on your screen. Then carefully turn rotating adjuster counterclockwise using Philips screwdriver. Try to muscle-remember original position of screwdriver so you can turn it back to it.
Eventually you will find the right one, you will see lines dissapear when you reduce voltage and reappear when you turn rotating shaft back. Sometimes more than one have to be adjusted.
Try to have all three color to be present and visible but with no over saturating and no horizontal lines.
Put cover and grill back - and that's should do it!
Regards.
Russ.

Sony kp-57ws500 flashes blue, green, red then turns off


Re-insering the flyback wire is usually very easy. Push in and give a slght turn and check to see if grabbed. It sounds as if there is more issues than flyback wire. TV should turn on without one crt connected

KP-57WS500 turning green or red and then off


Green and Red guns seems defective and requires replacement.
Both guns (CRTs) are no longer available so TV has no worth to repair.

Screen fades to blue.


The Blue SCREEN setting is too high. These adjustments are located inside the TV behind the front panel. There are two screws behind covers and then a wooden panel to remove to access the adjustments. The leftmost set are for BLUE, the middle are GREEN, and the right are RED. The top row are FOCUS and the bottom are SCREEN. Focus will focus/unfocus the tube and Screen will adjust the power of that tube (there are 3 tubes, one for each color). If Screen is adjusted too high, horizontal lines will appear (my TV had red lines, but I played around with the knobs and saw that it could happen on any of the colors). Additionally, if SCREEN is set even higher than that, the tube could go so high that it turns the whole screen that color (in your case, blue). If this happens the TV will shut down, probably due to either overheating or overvolting. To fix this issue, turn the appropriate SCREEN dial down until the lines go away. In your case, you want to turn the lower left dial down. Don't turn it too far down, if you turn it more than necessary the TV can give you an AKB error (noted by the STANDBY light flashing a sequence of 5 blinks).

Sony kp-57ws500 green screen then auto shutoff


I have the same tv and it did the same thing only now it has red hues all around the picture as well. The service guy told me it was the green tube and it would be about $500.00 to replace and may not fix the problem. What a p.o.s. I will not be guilty of buying any other Sony products from now on.

Sony turns on and off again


My tv too had a blue screen problem. Then it started to shut down after staying on for less than a minute. I thought that I would with a huge repair bill but I followed the directions at this link: http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html and now my tv works perfectly.
