Question about Sony KP-57HW40 57" Rear Projection Television
Projection sets have two very common problems.
The first common problem is convergence
These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.
When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.
Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...
*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

you are that clear
but if you are talking about flashes on the t.v then it is due to sparking is taking place in your plug & socket.
if it is ok then there is a sparking in high voltage section in tv which is called fly back section.
