Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television
My sony kp 57ws500 changes color every few minutes. it'll be normal and then gets blurry/dark, and the screen turns green. i'm still able to see whatever that is on but its all a shade of green.

CRT is expensive!!! Try to shuffle the electronic parts driving the CRT tubes first, it has three sets of parts, all are the same in each color: red, green, blue. Sometimes cleaning the leads or metal parts of the circuits, specially the green region, will gonna solve the problem. Do it first, it wont gonna cost you a dime, just time. [:0)

Your problem here has to do with the amount of aging that happens to the three colour tubes - red, green and blue.
Blue actually ages slower than red and green. What actually happens is the green tube deteriorates and due to green being the predominant colour for brightness causes the blue tube`s flyback lines to appear - especially when switching between inputs or when the video is blanked.
No replacing the blue tube will not solve your problem as the tube is actually the best one of the three.
As someone mentioned there is a way to adjust this by removing the speaker grill assembly in front of the set. Doing the service mode adjustment with the remote is not the right way to solve the problem - you would be adjusting the colour gain and off-set values and would seriously be compromising the white balance of the set.
On the left hand side behind the speaker cover you will see a black square block with six adjustment points. Look for the one marked SCR BLUE, Switch the set to a unused input so the blue lines become visible. Now adjust the BLUE point counter clockwise until the lines disappear. A small adjustment should do it, Switch back to a picture and make sure the whites are still white.
This should sort your problem. I would however suggest asking a Sony service centre to do this for you. This is a dangerous thing to do as you will be working close to the 35Kv supply the the anodes of the three tubes.
I hope this answers your question.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.
Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.
You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.
If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

hi, you`ve lost your convergence ic`s, unless your very proficient at solder work I`d advise you call a tech, will require removing 2 large IC`s and possibly a few small support parts, resistors, chemical fuses etc. Every place is a little different but runs approx. 300.00 at my shop, gl, video-tek
