Remove Speaker Grille from Sony KP-65WV700

I just sent this question via your $14.99 service.  No reply yet, so, while I'm waiting...
This procedure:

seems likely to be what I can use to solve my Sony KP-65WV700's too-much blue, and wavy-blue line problem.  However, the front speaker is attached differently from the one described here.  
Can you describe how to remove the speaker grille from my TV?
After I remove the six screws on the right and left back, and lightly pull on the grille plastic piece, it appears to be attached to the upper, screen piece above it, at about 6 or so inches from the right and left sides.

    Thanks for the reply!  So far your reply is the most specific I've heard.

    After removing the screws, it barely moves at all.  I can peel up the right and left sides a few millimeters, but that's about all.  Obviously, I don't want to risk breaking it.  So it doesn't feel like it's attached by wires in the same sense as what I saw in the pictures in  

    It's still quite firmly attached, and again, the attachment point appears to be about 6 inches in from the two sides toward the top.  When I pull on the bottom right side, it moves out a bit, but when I pull on the top right side, it doesn't move very much, and past that 6-inch-in point, I can see it moving in a little, as if it were pivoting on that point.

    Back to this again...

    Could I Email to you, or somebody, a photograph of the problem with removing the front grille?

    I removed the back panel of the TV, and I can clearly see the box that has the three potentiometers (well, 6 actually, but 3 of interest) described in  So I'm pretty confident that, if I can just get the speaker grille off, I could fix the problem.

    My KP-65WV700 ( is clearly very similar with the KP-51HW4 described in that link, but it's speaker grille is different, and is attached differently.

So you got the six screws undone, great! Now you can pop off the front speaker grill. The easiest way is to work your hand along the top and bottom to pop the plastic out of the "holders"

If what you are describing to me is the main wires still attached to the rest of the TV. So don't pull it out too far! If you do it right you won't have to unplug the wires, and save yourself some hassle... with this TV you'll have to pull it out JUST ENOUGH to get access to the carboard/masonite backing, removing such will give you full access to the six controls.

Adjust from there! Sorry for the wait, and I hope this helped out!

    Interesting, and you definitely don't want to do damage your TV. Is it under warrany still? Perhaps you could try and slide the panel out, rather than pulling it out directly? If it is attached to the top, pulling on it would definitely be a bad move. Perhaps if you attempted to lean it back, and slide the grill downwards instead of outwards? I'm sorry you are having such a difficult time.

Sony kp-65wv700

take the back off there should be a small rectangle with 6 buttons on it 3 for focus and 3 for the G2 (screens) some models have this control in the front behind the speaker grille behind an access panel and others have the control switch on the circuit board that is attav=ched to the crt neck. Either way its just a small switch much like a volume switch but smaller. Depending on what chassis you have it will be in one of the 3 areas I have mentioned. just turn it down a little. If that doesnt take the lines away you will need to trouble shoot the blue drive circuit.

Blue Screen

You have a bad blue picture tube. If you replace it the red and green will be weak and probably go sooner than you think. Everytime I had to replace a tube in a sony projo tv i had to replace all 3 picture tubes at the same time. It's very expensive if you don't have any type of warranty coverage.
