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

Continuous flashing green light

What does it mean when your sony projection tv flashes green continuously, please?

The tv does not come on, nor is there any sound. It first flashes 14 times, then there is a clicking sound, and the green light continues to flash non stop.

This link has the instructions on how to fix this problem and other similar problems. You
have nothing to lose, so I recommend that you try it.
http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html
This works with the two other colors, blue and green also. Not all models of Sony Projection
TVs have the red, green, and blue pots in the same order as the picture that is listed on
this link, so you may want to google search for your model's service manual. The service
manual can also help you be able to remove the cover for your particular model of TV. I was
able to find the service manual for my model, and sure enough, the order of the pots are
reversed on mine, so I would have been adjusting the wrong color. Read all of the comments
on this link too, because you can find other helpful tips and may even find someone with the
same model of TV as you that gives more specific instructions for your model.

You may also find your model's service manual here:

You can find information on Sony blink codes here:

I hope this helps you!
Fare well. :)

P.S. You can also clean the mirrors and dry dust while you're in there which can help with blurriness and focus. You may have to adjust all three colors to get the picture back.

the green is the reboot process and is normal.
the red light is an error code indicator.
count the blinks of the red light...it cant be 30 times (I think)
it will blink a sequence, pause, then do it again for a total of three times.
count carefully, it gives you three chances to catch the number it is blinking.

Continuous green flashing light


ther are some bad capacitors on the dm board in this tv, but this model is not layman friendly, we usually send in the entire chassis to Mitsubishi for a rebuild this cost about $300 then there is the cost of service also, this job will probably cost around $5 or 600 dollars.

Projection tv wont turn on


a sony should only blink up to 8 times. If its continuous without any pause that usually means No reply from the jungle (data bus is busy, shorted to ground or held
high), IK video path is defective.
Count your blinks again. let me know.
