Question about Sony KP-43HT20 43" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Sony with blue screen

Well the Sony 43 inch rear projection TV is approximately 8 years old so I guess it doesn't owe me anything. Was watching it, everything was fine, turned it off, moved it two feet, (I was careful) and when I turned it back on, the screen was all blue, no sound or picture. Any ideas?

I have a sony rear projection Tv 43 inch about 13 years old the red light in front blinks continuously when the on button is pushed and nothing else happens\r\ndue to it's age will I be able to get it...

It has been quite sometime, that I have repaired this TV. In one case the audio IC with standby is bad. The symptom you describe, is my first area of trouble shooting. You may resist the temptation to replace this TV. I understand. It would be better to replace this TV. Sony is a unique TV, and parts for this may be substituted with non originals. Even if this set is repaired, it will be a matter of short time that it will go down. I would certainly shop for a new Sony flat screen TV. Your chances of having a long running TV is in your best interest. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Blue Vertical Lines on the screen

It means the optical block is going bad. Contact Sony support. They will sometimes warranty these even after the 1yr warrany has expired. Have your model and serial numbers handy.
