Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

KP57WV600 Blue Screen (what is problem, how to fix, how much $, can I fix?)

I have a KP57WV600. After 10 seconds, the screen starts tinting blue. After about 20-30 seconds the entire screen is blue (no picture). Can this be fixed by adjusting the screws everyone talks about? If so, how do I access them? Everyone talks about from the front on other models, but, it is NOT obvious on the KP57WV600 model.

Or is this some other problem...if so, any idea of the fix?

Philips tv's have always had this problem. Between the picture tube and focus lens there is a layer of coolant fluid. The coolant fluid, over time, will break down and turn a brownish cloudy color and it usually starts with the blue. Something to do with the color frequency. Have a good repair shop check it out and if the fluid is the problem have them change all the fluid in all 3 picture tubes (there is a red, green and blue tube). Don't feel bad, like I said all the philips projo's had this problem. Thanks
