Sony KP-57WV600 screen

I'm getting light green lines on my television--and the black screen seems to be going green...the volume indicator can't be seen any more.  How can I fix it?

    This sounds like the right answer to my problem--

    What does a crt tube cost and can I install it myself?



  • Barryola Jan 22, 2008

    So I won't shock the shit out of myself by opening up and getting into the television? Mine is the KP-57VW600, not the one on the site you are referring me to.

  • Barryola Jan 23, 2008

    Thanks Rowdy, but it didn't work.  I couldn't figure out how to get the grille off the front of the kp-57wv600.  Took all the screws off I could find, but it still seemed "glued" on--and I didn't want to break it getting it off.  If anyone knows something, I'd love to know the secret to getting the grille off!


  • Barryola Jan 26, 2008

    Well, I was afraid to take the grille off myself, so I had the repair man come out.  $150.  But worth it, cause I saw how he did it (just like you said, but a little more "elbow grease" than I was putting into it).  He dialed out the green lines (just like you said) and then tapped the crt tube.  It made "flecks" on the screen and he said the tv would one day soon give me a flash of green and then it would be gone.  When it does, I'll probably do what you suggest above--send it away and get another.  Btw, he did all this while the tv was on.  No need for it to be off.  Thanks for your help.

    sony no longer sells crt tubes but there is a company called video display which sells tubes(supposedly brand new)_I have my doubts considering I must send crt tube and certain parts then they will send me NEW tube at $152.52...u.s.....they will tell approx what shipping will be....for me only $15 and I'm in for fixing... I myself am hoping to remove without repairman but have been told here there is high voltage contained withen set even after being unplugged(regrdless how long) so voltage must be nullified before removal of any I type I have a post hoping someone will have the answer for just that!!!.lol...chances are you may also have some minor issues as well ...I suggest getting repairman in once atleast to know for sure .....but beware of repairman ....mine wanted $300 for tube, $50 for convergence issue,3 hrs to fix for a $750 repair bill......I looked around and found tube cheaper as stated above which pissed him off so much he won't call back... that company # is 1-800-241-5005...ext 143...and they take c.o.d orders!

  • rowdyroddy Jan 23, 2008

    ok barry. here we go....1st remove 5 screws each side behind speaker grill(10 screws in total).....facing tv pull bottom of front faceplate toward you (IT WILL NOT BREAK-4 snap clips must be dislodged) ....careful not to pull to far from tv as it has 3 wire harnesses plugged into front panel circuit board.....if panel hasn't completely come off yet.......push top part of panel in and slide downwards and it's you can see small panel containing the 4 screws .once removed all will be revealed as in the site link photos....DO ALL THIS AND ADJUSTMENT WHILE TV IS UNPLUGGED!!....i recomend putting small panel back in(not screwed in) after every adjustment and lean front panel up against tv before plugging back in to see how adjustment worked....let me know how that worked out for ya.

57wv600 blinks 7 times, no picture, or blue for few seconds

1. Remove the 5 screws from behind each speaker
2. Grasp bottom center of plastic panel and "pop" forward. Swing upward to remove.
3. Remove 4 screws from the wooden panel in center.
4. There is a "black box" in the very front of electronics. It will have torque paint on the 2 rows of 3 screws. top row is labeled "focus"
MY TV would go green before going black. Volume still worked.
5. I turned the center bottom screw (marked "green") appx. 1/8 to 1/4 turn COUNTER clockwise.
Plugged TV in and it works fine.

I have a sony kp-57wv600 and when I turn on the tv the screen is green for at least ten seconds and then shut down.

It sounds like you have a bad GREEN CRT.
I would not invest the amount of money to replace the CRT. It would require a Qualified Service Person to come out to your home and remove the GREEN CRT ASSEMBLY and send it to Sony so they can rebuild it. Too much time and money would be wasted. I estimate it would cost around 800.00.
I hope this helps,
