Question about Sony KP-57HW40 57" Rear Projection Television
I have a Sony KP57WV600 that I bought 4 years ago. It started just showing blue arched lines when the picture was dark. Now when you turn the TV on the picture is fine for about 2 seconds, then the whole picture turns blue and gradually the picture starts coming back in. When I contacted Soundtrack for their advice, they told me it does not sound like a bad tube b/c the picture would not come back in. What do you think? Would the repairs and labor cost be worth the repair? I paid approx. $2700 for the TV.
I had the same problem with the arched lines on my KP-57HW40 for a while. Then, slowly the screen turned blueish/pinkish and one day the set just shuts itself off. Sometimes, it's fine then gradually turned bad. I got it in '02 for $2,700. Some Sony licensed repair shop said it'd cost about $600 to replace the bulb if it's found to be necessary. I was just so tired of this chunky junk that I gave up and bought a Samsung LCD. Now, it's sitting in a room waiting for a willing taker.

Can I put it in myself? Where can I purchase a focus block?

Yes ,it sounds like screen adjustment or focus block, should be around $200- $325 to repair.
