    I called Sony and they said there has been no recall or extended warrantee on picture tube model #KP57WV700.

    I have been having problems with this modle a year and a half from the time of purchase. Sony only is covering it for one year.

    The problem is green flickering and the TV shutting down.

    Now there is no green at all.

    The solution would have been helpful if it were true.

    I know I will not buy another Sony product.

I have the same problem...Sony makes a Product and won't back it up? This is ********. I will NEVER buy another Sony product again unless they change this. My TV is 5 yrs old w/absolutely nothing to do now but to throw the whole unit away because of one tube going bad?

That's like throwing away a sports car because of one engine part going bad. DUMB.

Unfortinately its likely a bad green CRT. If it stablizes over time, then no adjustment will help you. CRTs are expensive so its best to turn it on 30 minutes before you need it.

Converge problem on a kp-65ws500 sony rear proyection tv


You can download a copy of the service manual that explains how to enter service mode and perform convergence of the red/blue/green guns, but unless you are comfortable doing something like this, you may be better off calling a good shop familiar with rear projection sets and getting a quote to have a convergence service performed.

Green lines on my Sony projection


Those are called retrace lines and they are the result of the blanking pulse not having the desired effect. This could denote a problem in the Horizontal section of the TV. In this case the green gun is not being turned off as it goes back to the left side of the screen.
