No Picture only sound

I only get sound with a black screen and a bluish/purplish line down the middle of the screen (horizontal). This TV is about 5 almost 6 years old.

Re: No Picture only sound

You have a problem inthe horizontal deflection circuit. Quite possibly a solder connection around the yok plug connection or the horizontal output transistor or Driver transformer. If the solder looks good. You will need a service manual so you can check your various power supplies. You can get a manual at the following link for 10.99 and they also offer free support. They willals email it to you if you return to the site and request that they email it instead of mail. Hope this helps. Here is the link.

I have a Mitsi WS-65807 65" Played Wii for about two hours. Lost sound then picture. Now it wont turn on. Just get a warped bluish screen with lines. Any Suggestions?

Well i need more info. have you tried unplugging the tv for around 60 seconds? Was the "warped bluish screen" right before it died. Or is this when you turn it on it happens?(Bluish screen)? Because if no power at all and no picture at all. Could be Power supply. If you have some sort of picture with blue lines that are stable? You have a convergence problem. Get back to me with info i can help.

Line across middle of screen, rest of screen black

The problelm is a defective vertical deflection system. Could be the amplifier, vertical output driver or whole printed board that supports the vertical deflection activity. It is considered to be a serious failure.
The cost of repair will be around $200 to $300.

53" sony projection -picture washed out w/ green horizontal lines

It sounds like your Green CRT ( picture tube ) is shorted. That's the one in the middle. Sony had issues with there tubes in those years. Sorry for the bad news. Even if you could locate the tube, it will be a matter of time before the Red or Blue does the same.

Screen fades to blue.

The Blue SCREEN setting is too high. These adjustments are located inside the TV behind the front panel. There are two screws behind covers and then a wooden panel to remove to access the adjustments. The leftmost set are for BLUE, the middle are GREEN, and the right are RED. The top row are FOCUS and the bottom are SCREEN. Focus will focus/unfocus the tube and Screen will adjust the power of that tube (there are 3 tubes, one for each color). If Screen is adjusted too high, horizontal lines will appear (my TV had red lines, but I played around with the knobs and saw that it could happen on any of the colors). Additionally, if SCREEN is set even higher than that, the tube could go so high that it turns the whole screen that color (in your case, blue). If this happens the TV will shut down, probably due to either overheating or overvolting. To fix this issue, turn the appropriate SCREEN dial down until the lines go away. In your case, you want to turn the lower left dial down. Don't turn it too far down, if you turn it more than necessary the TV can give you an AKB error (noted by the STANDBY light flashing a sequence of 5 blinks).
