Question about Sony KP-57HW40 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Black Screen with vertical lines down the side?

I have a Sony Kphw40 model tv. recently the screen was all red and i took it into the shop. they called back and said nothing was wrong except the color settings in the menu. after I turned it on at home it worked fine. then after the tv was turned off and turned back on the screen is all messed up. It is now black in the middle with a 1/2 inch vertical blue line, an inch vertical turquoise line, and then a 6" white vertical line on the left side. on the right side of the black is a red then a yellow line, the same size as the other ones and then more white, and a little purple vertical line and a vertical blue line on the very edge of the screen. the on screen menu still works but it is a triple image of all the colors. i can change channels but the image never changes, and i can still hear all the audio. please help.

Sony KF50WE610 Vertical Blue Lines Across Screen

the vertical blue lines indicate some interference from other electronic gadgets near your tv. it started showing up on my sony grand wega when i installed my wireless modem. i almost ordered a new rear projection lamp costing over $100 but decided to experiment. i first moved my desk computer farther away from the tv then isolated the wireless modem router by placing it inside a small glass - the vertical blue lines became lighter in color so i dedided to find another small glass that fit inside the first glass container then put the router in the double glass - no more blue lines and my wireless modem router still works.
do some deductive thinking to figure out what's messing up your tv and isolate the interference.
good luck!

This is for a different model, but I had thin horizontal lines in red and had to adjust the tube for red. You may have a similar adjustment on your set.

Sony KP-51HW40

I had the same problem with mine 2 years ago (TV was 1.5 years old at that time) I had extended warranty on TV and it was fixed by Sony at no cost to me. Now yesterday I have another problem with it. All of a sudden screen went BLUE. No Sound either. It could be the CRT (That's what I read here) Out of luck this time. Will call local Repair shop (70 miles away) and see how much it will cost to fix it. Good luck.

Faint red lines in a curved arch like pattern

Guys I did this myself real easy. Just don't turn the corresponding screw too far. Only need to adjust it until the lines go away. Do it on a darker screen so the lines are more visible. I did the red 2 years ago and the green 6months before that. The blue lines are coming on my screen now and I've fixed it in 10 minutes. The TV is amazing.
