Sony kp41s3u - blue screen

Switched it on and got an all blue screen one day (red and green are there but flash)
popped the back cover off and you can see the red and the green tubes flashing really fast, but the blue just sits there bright with no flashing.
Any ideas?

    I dont have any distortion on picture, its just blue.

    I cant see any menus even if i did get them to come up. The menu on sonys are all green and the green tube is flashing really fast.

  • FunkedUp Feb 26, 2008

    I've tried unplugging things from the blue tube and then the blue doesnt start up at all but it does stop the others flashing. They are still dim though.

  • FunkedUp Feb 26, 2008

    I fixed it.

    turns out it was a bad connection on the box with the adjustable focus for each colour.

    No soldering or parts required!!!!!!

  • FunkedUp Mar 20, 2008

    ok the problem came back. Its not a loose connection on focus block but i can still cure it temporarily by swapping 2 colours on the back of the focus block.



    Any ideas whats causing this???

I have the sony bravia KDF E50 A12U The tv went pop and wont work. On switching on the tv, the light stays green, then goes over to 3 red light flash then green. What is this and is it easily fixed?

  • This model had a problem with the lamp door warping from the heat.

Remove the door and hold it edgewise to see if warped..

There is a peg on the back of the door that engages a lever when the door is closed---if door warped set will not come on.

A simple way to confirm or deny this is to use something not metal to with the door removed ENGAGE and hold the lever forward.

DO NOT IF THE THIS SET COMES ON LOOK AT THE LIGHT OR OPERATE IT FOR PROLONGED PERIODS OF TIME.

Do not put the outer shield cover back on without the door as heat can get it also.

If set comes on with door lever engaged you need to replace the door--widely available on the internet and or from Sony---not a bad idea to buy a spare one.

let me know what happens.

I have a Sony tv KDF50WE655, the other day while I was watching tv, heard a noise and the tv went off, displying the lamp red light..I ordered and replaced the lamp. I made sure the lamp is ok and the door...


Please make sure lamp cover is fixed properly in its position after lamp replacement as it has to press a safety switch located nearby lamp cover.
3 times red blink problem is related with that lamp cover safety switch only.
Hope this will help.
Thanks.

You have a completely different problem. The screen voltage for the blue picture tube is slightly too high on your set. This will put fine lines in the background of the picture, called retrace lines. This is very common and easy to correct. Remove the front speaker cover and the access panel behind it. Look inside and you will see a black box with six controls, each control having a little white glue on it. This is the Focus/Screen block. Three controls are labeled Focus and three are labeled Screen. The screen control in the center is for green but I am not sure if the screen control on the left or right is for blue for your model. With the TV on, set it to VIDEO 1 but do not connect anything to the VIDEO 1 jacks. This will produce a pure dark picture, showing any faint lines in the background. Choose one of the screen controls and increase (turn clockwise) it slightly. If the blue lines do not get brighter it means you are turning the red screen control, so put it back where it was and choose the other screen control. When you find the blue screen control, decrease (turn counter-clockwise) it until just when the blue lines are gone. If you want you can check that the red and green screen controls are set to just below the point where their faint lines are visible. When done, replace the panels and your picture will be back to perfect.

MikeNJ1964 was exactly right! I have a Sony KP-65WV600 that had horizontal green lines that showed when the picture was darker. I had to remove 3 screws on the right and left side of the tv holding in the speakers...carefully pop out the middle panel from the clips holding it in....remove 4 screws from the cardboard in the middle and remove the cardboard. I then saw the six screws. The adjustment screws were the three below. I turned the middle screw until the lines dissapeared. I tried the left screw and blue lines appeared which I then adjusted away.
THANKS a bunch. SAVED me money!!!

Turns green and shuts off


I had an electrician come over. He pulled out the bulb that was dead (for me it was the color that was flashing before it would turn off) and now I have a blue and green TV with no red. He said that the only way to fix it is to replace the red lamp with a new one.

Screen slowly turns blue...


I had blue lines showing up on my screen, then the other night my screen started to flutter the blue, bright to dim and back. So I followed this link to resolve the blue lines and the blue flutter was resolved as well. Hope this helps.

Screen all blue


Try looking into the blue CRT lens while its on and see if the coolant has congealed. You will be able to tell if it has bacteria growing as this can cause the blue to be unresposive and make your screen have a blue haze. The coolant will need changing if this is congealed with bacteria. This is a common problem in all projection tvs blue and green are more prone to this sympton red is not.

Could you show a picture of the distended cover you mentioned?

 

Were the light blue lines you were referring to, diagonal, or truly horizontal?

KP41S3U LED FLASHES 12 TIMES


I dont think Sony has a "12" blink code, the highest (being in a newer set) is a "10", might try rechecking that, as for the code 2 that is an OCP, usually a shorted horizontal output transistor/Convergence IC's/High Voltage distribution block. My bet is the Block as HV tends to break down parts like that over time You must be careful when removing the anode leads as you can break the tip off or burn something up if not done right.

Pincushion Picture on a big TV screen!!!


The set has 3 IC's(one for each color)strictly dedicated for the aligment of each color,if one them does not align is because is going bad or is already bad becuase picture can not be adjusted,the IC's can be identify because they are mounted on a heat sink and have the markings STK--- ---,they are all the same and need to be replaced with an exact replacement.If you are familiar with tv service you can replace them,sometimes the new ones need to be aligned from the service menu,you will need the service manual,soldering and unsoldering will be involved,If you are not too familiar be safe and seek the assistance of a servicer.
