    My KP-51WS510 Rear projection TV picture has deteriorated as follows...



    1) Last 4 months when I turn on the TV the picture would not fill in on the bottom for 2 to 3 minutes. Kind of looked like a smile at the bottom of the screen. Once the TV was warm, picture was OK.



    2) Now the picture is totally messed up. The color is mostly purple hue with flickering. Still can view the picture, but quality is very bad. Indicator light flashes 5 times.



    Any ideas???

These sets had bad welds in the gun assemblies of the picture tubes. Now, one of the tubes has failed (shorted) and the cost would be too high to replace all three.

Sounds like the convergence board, try replacing the STK voltage regulators and any resistors that may burned or discolored. This problem is causing the power supply to shut down probably.

TV picture goes out after 10 minutes of viewing with popping sound


It can be a couple things. Something bad on the power board. Or the vertical output circuit. How long ago did you purchase the television. Your best course of action is to have it serviced.
If you need any information or other assistance let me know.
Thanks,
Lee

Jar-Head, bad news, the picture tube has a mild short in the green cathode, tech can come out and try to restore it but it`s usually a futile attempt on sony tubes, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, BMW Rider

Red screen


It sounds as though your Picture tubes are getting weak or theres a bad capacitor in the screen drive circuit. The only way to tell would be to call in a tech to diagnose this problem with his test equipment. A tv set is not a place for an unexperienced person to play with. Good Luck
