Question about Sony KP-65WS500 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Color problems and tv shutting off

The color is very red, and the color flickers and changes. Also, the set starts flashing green and then shuts off. I called a few repair places and they said I would need to replace all 3 tubes at great cost, is that the case? Thanks.

    Similar problem, though mine isn't as dramatic. It just flashes green every so often. I feel it is a symptom of a larger problem that could end up being as bad as the other poster's problem.

    Thank you.

My tv screen turns red as it heats up and the repairshop told me it would cost $600.00 for a new red projection gun how ever I don't think thats the case because it is a heat related issue. I think an ic or transistor is going bad and goes into saturation when it gots warm. I will be spraing some components with freeze spray and if my hunch is correct the color will temporarly correct its self when I spray the right component.

Wd65738 flickering


I had a TV do that about a year ago, the repair man said it was the color wheel inside the tv. I changed the bulb to see if he was BS'ng me and eventually got the manufacturer to send a color wheel and I change it myself, was very easy...TV works fine ever since. Hope this helps

My samsung 61in. Dlp screen flashes green/blue pic is viewable but everything is the two colors, also screen will flash icon check fan #1


You have 2 problems. Problem 1 either you main board or light engine is bad and needs to be replaced. Problem 2 is exactly what your TV says. Fan#1 isn't functioning properly so a heat sencor is being actiated to shut down your set. Make sure all the fans are free of debree and spinning. If one is not spinning, make sure it has voltage going to it. This will let you know if you have a bad fan, or a bad board.

I have a Vivitek RP51HD41-A TV. The TV keeps turning off and on. The color and sound is fine. I have replaced the lamp and this has not fixed the problem.


If its a DLP it may have a color wheel which could be your problem (the colors will change etc)

Color wheels move at high speed and if slow down set will shut down.

The wheel if there will face the lamp. If often if failing will make a high pitched whine or a fan like sound.

Sony KP75HW40 unstable red. (not the usual problem)


I would suggest either the Focus block or the RED CRT drive board either one of those items could cause the symptom. A defective CRT could also, but a shorted CRT doesnt usually go back to being normal

Sony KP-53V45 color issues


When ever a tube starts to short or is shorted set always will have over bearing drive lines then shut down like RED if it was bad, set would come on long enough for red lines across set then shut down this is the same with all 3 tubes.Also if you think it might be green tube disconnected green CRT board on neck of green tube if set comes on and plays then it is green tube do all 3 tube this way one at a time this will tell you if you have other problems.

Mitsubishi wt-46809 46in wont power on


You need to adjust the votages going to the crt's. As the flyback transformer starts to go out the voltages to the crts can go up and down causing the tv to shut off. It also causes red, green, or blue arced lines to show up on the screen. It can also cause some color fading in and out or flickering. Adjusting the voltages can fix the problem temporarily but in the long run it's a good idea to replace the flyback. Make sure you read up on how to do this safely.
