Question about Sony KP-57WS510 57" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Blinking Hello. My tv is a sony model kp-57ws510 and all of the sudden we tried to turn it on and then it just turns off about 10 seconds later. We can hear the channel but the tv turns on so fast that nothing appears on the screen. Also, when we turn on the tv the standby/timer light blinks. I don't know what to do to make it stop and we don't have the manual. If you have any ideas on how to fix it please reply. Thank you.

Re: Blinking

Can you do this? Take the back off and look next to the transformer (has large red wires coming out) and have someone turn on the set and if you see a glowing device next to the transformer then the High voltage splitter is bad and if no glow then transformer is bad. This is for information purposes only. Changing these parts is for the trained only and could cost on average $300 parts and labor depending on the repairman and location you are living.

Sony KP-57WS510 red light blinking 5x

Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

hello No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.

Tv turns on for 5 seconds no picture and shuts off.. red light blinks 8 times

hello. problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board.

Tv wont come on and a red light is blinking. I have a Sony Wide screen projection TV model kp-46wt520

Can you unplug the TV for about 15 seconds, and then plug back in and watch the stand-by light. Tell me how many time the stand-by light blinks in regular intervals. If it doesn't blink at all, you need to change a fuse on the g-board. Once this is done run back through the stand-by blink light process, and more troubleshooting can be done if problem isn't already solved. If the stand-by light just keeps blinking with a count over ten just tell me, and I'll look for other possibilities.
