Sony KP%&HW40 with varying background tinting

My Sony KP57HW40 has, with increasing frequency, been displaying a constantly varying tint of background on the picture. Especially when watching fb or soccer games, the field varies so much in the tint of green it makes watching the game distracting

KDF-E50A10 - hard to see details during dark scenes and a dark bluish tint can be seen in background. When tv is turned off the screen goes black but has bluish tint toward the edges before it all goes...


Hate to tell you this but it sounds like your picture module is going bad. The bluish tint tells me it is leaking to the outside. Some problems with the LCD picture module can be fixed but I never had to fix one. Might check out some videos on repairing LCD picture tubes on YouTube.

The picture on my Sony kp57hw40 has bluish hue to it. It is more visible when what you are watching is darker in color or lower in light. I have tried to adjust everything (color, brightness, etc,etc)...


I have first some information for you and then a possible solution.

A lot of these sets had problems with the 3 picture tubes---blue seems to be the most common--if you go to a unused video input and see anything other than Input 1 etc like blue background or even blue curved faint lines do not despair.

There is a fairly easy way to adjust this (not with the remote) I can tell you the procedure and it requires no parts and only moderate skill.

May I assist you here?

Picture is very blue, especially in dark scenes.


Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.

I have a kp57hw40 sony tv and the scren it flashs


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

My sony projection tv model # kp-46wt500 has a green and red tint. how can i fix it?


Increase the current flow to the blue color gun. If it is not adjustable it will need replaced and this is a major repair. You can try to reduce the red and green guns and increase the output transformer for a temporary fix, but save up your pennies for a replacement. Have a tech look at it before running out for a replacement because the SONY is the better model projection televisions.
