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

1 Answer

Overheating problem?????? The TV currently has an issue that causes the screen to flicker green and shut off, typically after an hour or so after being turned on. It seems as if it may be an overheating issue since it occurs repeatedly once the TV has been on for awhile

You got an issue with overheating.  TV is designed to shut off to protect electronic components if TV overheats.  Take it to the shop and have them open this thing up to identify the faulty circuit.  Also, check to make sure your not blocking the heat vents.

REDENT PURCHASE OF TV'S Have green in some spots.


This is typically referred to as a color purity problem and can be caused by two main things. The first cause can be stray magnetic fields which can 'magnetize' the TV screen either by something magnetic begint oo close to the screen or having turned the direction of the TV while it is turned on. If this is a purity issue caused by magnetic fields, it can usually be cirrected by powering off the TV for about 1/2 hour and turning it back on. All tube TVs have build in 'degaussing' circuits to cure just this issue.

If this doesn't fix it the other cause is a shifted shadow mask inside the picture tube itself and cannot be corrected.
