Question about Sony KP-53V45 53" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Blue screen of death on a tv??

I've got a Sony KP-53V45, had it for awhile and as most tv's get when they are older it started taking awhile to warm up and turn on. Now when it does come on I have a very blurry picture for about ten seconds then it all goes blue with white wavey lines arcing across the screen. Then after awhile the blue will go out as well and it's all black. Still have sound, but nothing else happens. I've left the set on for about ten minutes after this happens to see if the red and green will come back, and occasionly they will but only intermittently. Any ideas?
