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

1 Answer

Set turns off randomly

When set turns off, the screen goes blue (for awhile, blue was the only color) or red (the current favorite color.) The light blinks an error code of 8 blinks. Sometime the set will work properly if left off for a few minutes, and at other times it keeps shutting off a few seconds after being turned back on.

Power is on but after 2-4 seconds display turns off but power is still on where the power light is in blue.it's not in sleep mode where the power color is orange.it just goes back to normal at random...


Without looking at the monitor to confirm this, I suspect you have failing capacitors which power the HT circuit, simply, the power needed to light the display, is leaking to earth, capacitors have lost the ability to store the charge necessary to illuminate the screen, which is why it is working erratically.
You need to get this checked out by a TV technician.

Tv just turns off while watching it the screen goes blue than turns off


This is one of a group of sets (KP-57ws500) that had bad picture tubes---all of them had this trouble.

The picture tubes are no longer available from Sony--only available on a rebuild basis from another company--very expensive and usually not worth doing---blue is most common tube to show trouble.

The set is shutting down because if the screen goes bright blue---it pulls too much current and the set goes into protective shutdown.

There is one fairly easy thing that you may be able to do-----I have done it before.

What it entails is getting at the Screen/ Focus control block and turning the Blue Screen control down--if it works it may just buy you some time but I have seen several sets where it allowed the set to have some more life.

Usually if the set was working the way this problem begins is you on a blank video input notice a slight blue color in the background with some faint curved lines visable.

If you want to attempt to do the adjustment--let me know and I will tell you how.

I am here to help people----I have seen over 100 of these Sony sets with this problem---replaced tubes in many of them when they were new or under warranty.

Wii standby light


To be precise, you can turn this option off from the Wii System settings -> Wii Connect 24 -> standby connection -> off

When this setting is swiched to off, your console shuts down entirely and there is a RED light on the power button. There will be no need to turn off the console pressing the power button.

Aadjusting screen colors


They should be adjusted to set voltages. however it is best to shut the color level to the lowest setting then try t balance the screens to achieve the best black and white picture. then turn up your color level. Your brightness level should also be set to 50 % then when you adjust for the best B&W picture. You will have better color and brightness when you reset your color and brightness levels. Hope this helps.
