    When I turn on the tv after about 20-30 minutes the tv flashes green. I noticed in the past that there was a hum coming from the tv. I have read that this is the color wheel, and also read that they are not making the color wheel anymore. I purchased the tv from Wal-Mart in '07. Hope you can point me in the right direction to get a replacement wheel.







    Thanks,

    DAN

    I replaced the bulb about 6 months ago and just now replaced the color wheel. I am still getting the green lines to come across the picture randomly and it is jumpy when I go to the menu screen. What next?

    I have the same problem with the picture going pure white and black for a few seconds and then going all black, only displaying sound, and then the TV changes channels by itself. If it were just the color wheel why would the TV change channels by itself?

Hi...the flickering and the green is the colorwheel going bad. Very common for this model and an easy fix too.

My RCA rear projection wont turn on the light flashes when i push the power button, i got it to turn on once and i had a vertical line running through it. and colors a little distorted, i tried in the menu...


The flashing light opposed to a solid pwer indicator light usually means it needs to be serviced. I wouldn't reccomend home repairs, but repairs sometimes cost more than the product. You should compare prices and such before making your move.

Screen lookes like colores separating


Here's all I find regarding bad convergence from the techrepairCD:
RCA ~ITC222 D52W20~Convergence bad~~~ITC222~Replace leaky DL032 on
deflection board~~~~~~

RCA~D52W20Y ATC221~Convergence goes out/bowed after on for a few
minutes~~~ATC221~Problem may be on the deflection board. Was unable to
pinpoint where in this case.~~~~~~

RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~Convergence way off after replacing small signal
board~EEPROMS were transferred over to new board~~~IK210 was
defective..transfer the new EEPROM back over.~Remember on these
sets*when replacing the SSB* if there is a small P on corner of
screen*hold volume on remote for 8 seconds after it reaches minimum.~~~~~

RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~Can not align blue convergence* bottom really
bowed* possibly either color after replacing SSB.(Or no auto
convergence.~(Service menu: turn power off for 30 seconds* press vol dn
and ch dn* simultaneously for 8 seconds* set turns on with service menu
options)~~ITC222~In service menu* select convergence. If sensor
calibration was performed when convergence was too far off* it will not
alighn.~Get crosshatch with straight lines* perform sensor calibration*
then attempt convergence alignment again. Be sure to store settings*
then do sensor calibration again.~You must get a green flash of the
screen after sensor cal and a check in the box. RED flash indicated
convergence settings are too far off~~~~

RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~no convergence correction~~~ITC222~LP650
(259271) DP670 (259246) & RP632 (259564) 4.7 3W on convergence power
supply board~~~~~~

Tip

Pix shuts off, green light starts flashing, pix comes back and shuts off again


If you have an issue where your picture turns off and the green power light starts flashing, you are most likely looking at a weak or old lamp. Do not be confused with a pix loss and a RED light flashing, as this can be caused by many things. The normal sequence of events for this fix is this:
1) TV turns on normally, plays for 1 to 3 minutes (may be more or less time)
2) Picture goes out and green power light begins flashing. It may flash for up to 2 minutes
3) green light turns on solid (stops flashing) and picture returns.
4) Picture goes out again and process repeats.

You may have been told that "if the lamp light isn't on, it isn't a bad lamp".
FALSE!
A weak lamp will cause the process above to occur. Other signs of a weak lamp:
The reflector in the lamp is very cloudy
You may see a "growth" or "bubble" on the vertical glass tube which is the lamp
You haven't replaced the lamp in quite some time or it is the original lamp from when you purchased the TV.

In cases like these, try a new lamp. Stick with an original Sony lamp, as there are many stories (both personally witnessed by me and also documented on the web) about problems with after market replacement lamps. And remember, lamps DO NOT have a shelf life; you can store them in a good environment (not too hot or cold!) for an indefinite period with no ill effects.

White flashes on screen , then temporary black screen.


I would try the lamp first,if it has never been replaced they only last for up to 5,000-8,000 hours.

Color flickers on and off


I went to the Sony support page for your model.(link below)http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=KP61V85&LOC=3
They are undergoing maintenance right now, so I couldn't find any answers for you. I would check back with the website to see if they can help you. If the Standby timer light flashes, you may need to have the TV repaired. There is a "Hot Topics" section for "How to troubleshoot television picture issues" that will probably be very helpful to you.
