Question about Sony KP-57WV600 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Red CRT tube has stopped working on Sony KP-57WV600

My TV is 6 years old, some repair techs want to charge me $500 to replace it, some have said Sony no longer supplies the CRT and I should buy a new TV...What to do?

Is there a source to purchase the CRT and replace it myself?

Should I spend the $500 and have a tech come to my home and perform the repair, or do I go shopping?

Thanks, Mike

Don`t even think of replacing it yourself, You don`t just change the tube which involves disharging the 40 000 volts from the tube, You also have to perform a convergence setup where the three beams have to be overlayed or superimposed on top of each other right across the screen. This is a very time consuming job and it`s not easy, I used to do this and you NEVER get it perfect. You have to know how to get into service mode. etc etc. What the engineer has said is quite right, the problem is it takes two men to dismantle and pick up the chassis from your home and take it to the workshop, It has to be worked on, new tube ordered and as I mentioned earlier, the mammoth task of setting up the convergence. When all this has been done, two men have to return the chassis and reinstall it into the cabinet. When you get it back, the other two tubes are the same age as the one that has already failed, who`s to say when one of the others will decide to pack in. It`s a shame, but I think I`d purchase a new set where you get 12 months guarantee or even longer nowadays with many more functions than your has now with better picture quality due to technological advances etc etc. Ian

Have a sony kp-57ws500, tubes are going bad. Should I fix or get new tv. How much are new tubes. Red is out now. How much is one?


This is one of a group of sets with bad tubes, many were replaced under warranty (it seems they actually put the wrong ones in thousands of these sets)

The tubes are no longer available from Sony and only available on a rebuild basis---figure over 350 per tube plus labor.

IF THE SET IS COMING ON RED, GREEN OR BLUE SCREEN, AND OR SHUTS OFF---THERE IS A WAY THAT REQUIRES NO PARTS TO TRY TO ADJUST IT.

Give me a better idea of what the set is or is not doing and I would be happy to advise you.

If this told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Sony KP-51WS500 projection tv. Screen is green with curved lines


The green picture tube has an internal short. Happened a lot with that model. The tubes are no longer availible. But a reputable company called Video Display will rebuild the tube completely. But the tube must be pulled and shipped to them. Most repair shops would charge around $400 to $500 for the complete job.
