Sure I would investage the tranformer on the lamp or replace the lamp itself. That would be your cause for a blue screen. A good repair shop would be able to take care of this for about $350-450 repsectivly.

My sugesstion if you know what your doing is test and see if the lamp is getting power if not change that out.

Other then that if your not experienced leave it to a repair shop.

I think none are available any more--you may find a company who will rebuild the tube but that is expensive.

No Picture on KDP65XBR2

You have a shorted blue CRT (picture tube) the lines you saw are called retrace lines and when you can see them, there's either a mis-adjustment of the screen settings to the CRTs or a circuit malfunction or in your case, a bad picture tube. If your TV's serial number starts off with 90..... then you have the defective CRTs Sony put in hundreds of thousands of their projection TVs from late 2001 thru 2003. They made a very poor attempt to resolve customer complaints for a short period of time but now they have left many consumers hanging because they claim they have no more of these CRTs left.

Also, regarding your Circuit City wrranty. Don't give up. These warranties are held by third party insurers mainly G.E Extended Warranties who are stalling for time until a bankruptsy judge forces them to take care of their customers. Contact your state's attorney general to complain and get info on how this will be resolved.

Good Luck!
