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

2 Answers

Green screen with pin stripes and TV shuts off after maybe 10 seconds!

Green screen with little white stripes for a few seconds and then the TV turns off. The stand by light flashes. I took off the front cover and tried to adjust the green in the few seconds I have and all it did was change to a multicolor snow before shutting off again. Am I screwed?

    I have been having the same problem. I was thinking it was something that I had done, until I looked at this website. I contacted Sony and I was told that any repairs would have to be paid for by me. This TV is only 4 years old. What happened to the quality products that we used to have.

    I have the same problem;

  • withg Apr 03, 2008

    2 weeks ago, we had the same problem: KP-57WS500 was turned on, green screen came on with lines across. Then the video was out, the audio was out, and the tv went to standby with 8 flashings. We just replaced the D board ($203.00+). Now the audio is holding, but the video is still out. LED in front still gives 8 blinks. Spent $2,350.00+ five years ago. Scare of Sony now. Try to fix in budget. If can not, will consider a different brand name.

Green Screen, No Sound, Shuts off after 10 seconds


Almost certainly the green picture tube is shorted. This is a very expensive repair; probably not worth doing.

Green flashes then tv turns off


or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.

You have a bad green picture tube. If you have warranty coverage good, if not then forget about it. Get a new TV.
