Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

TV flashes blue and then shuts off!!

We have had this television for a while but never had issues until recently. We can watch television and after a while the picture starts to lighten up and then the screen flashes blue and shuts off. Can anyone shed light on this issue? is it worth calling a repairman out or should we just shop for a new television. This is a 60" Sony rear projection television.

Shuts off and on while trying to watch, the power light flashes 30 times when off then the tv comes back on again


Power supply trouble. The TV keeps trying to start then operates for 2 seconds and shuts down. The cycle keeps repeating until eventually the TV will not start at all.

Sony kp 51hw40 rear projector turn off problem .


T8005 etc is NOT the issue.

This set was prone to bad picture tubes (has 3) and can flash bright blue (most common) and set when this happens detects too much current being drawn and shuts down.

There is a fairly easy way to try to deal with this and return set operation to fairly normal.

Not technical and no parts are needed.

Let me know if you want to know with a comment here and I will explain.

First thing to try is to press the reset button on the front of the TV. This forces a system reset.
