Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television

Sony KP51W40 Blue tube flashes

The blue tube flashes a few times before HV shutdown. Im thinking my blue crt is cathode arcing. Was told there are no tubes available for this model.
I will try my old tube rejuvinator on it. maybe I can blow the slivers off the filament. Can any technicians here advise the price and availability on the blue CRT?
I do not have the service manual or the part number.
Thanks
Paul

    Well, It is nice and dry for starters. When I said arcing, I meant between the heater filement and the cathode. It used to be a common problem on straight CRT televisions. I read on here somewhere that this tubelot was a lemon from the beginning.

    Thanks for trying to answer anyway Jamie867.

I do not think the old tube rejuvenator will do much if the HV is arcing. The CRT it might leaking some coolant or some moisture from it is causing the arcing.
I would suggest to read the info from this website to re-seal it or replace the coolant.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Sony projection tv turns to a blue screen almost immediately and then turns black seconds after that.


Hello, it sounds like the blue crt has a cathode short in it and causes an overdrive situation putting the set into shutdown. The crt's are no longer available.

Turns on for 30 sec then goes bright blue and goes back into standby. turn back on it does it agian


This is blue CRT problem in tv as it is rear projection tv that has three CRTs red-green-blue inside to project color picture on front screen.
Blue CRT (tube) will be replaced to fix the issue and it is job of Pro because lots of adjustments are required after replacement of tube.
Local tv repair shop will help you for that.
Thanks

The screen blinks flashes blue then goes black and shuts off. Then the red light blinks 8 times.


This is a very common issue with these sets. The issue is the CRT's have cathodes that are shorting out. Right now you may only have the blue one failing, but sooner or later the green and red will follow. The CRT's (picture tubes) are no longer available for replacement individually. At this point you have to replace all three CRT's with suitable substitutes. The part numbers I have included. this is not a do it your self repair as you are dealing with replacing CRT's that can and do store charges up to 1,000 volts. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

How can I diagnose the power supply unit in this set? I suspect it is the cause of my problem. Error code 23, screen shrank in and out a couple times and turned off a couple times, now wont come back on....


Hello hellian82,

The problem is the arcing red tube, it can be replaced or rejuvenated by qualified TV technician. The arcing is the result of a spark gap being formed in the picture tube resulting in a short between the HV anode of the tube and ground. Replacement of the tube is preferred, but the tube can be rejuvenated using a CRT rejuvenator.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

5 flashing light code,unplug CR board,now 8 flashing light code


If you put the "CR" board back on, the error code will once again be 5 blinks. Your problem is likely the TV's IK blanking circuit. The Kine driver ICs on the CRT sockets boards CR, CB, and CG need replacement along with a few components in the 200 volt supply to the circuit.

DPTV335


Ed did you change the yokes when you put the DPTV series CRT into the PTV chassis? If not its most likely the vertical output or the Horizontal output that got destroyed. If you changed the yoke its most likely the HV generator.
On the DPTV chassis that should shutdown the vertical deflection which would leave audio working worse case scenario would also be the HV generator and Horizontal output.

Blue Screen and TV shuts off


Here's a shortcut to what the blinking codes mean.
http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/08/sony-tv-led-blinking-codes-what-does-it.html
Strange how some people have 5 blinks. Most with this problem have 8 blinks (like myself)

I still have the blue-flash-then-shutting-off problem.. (8 blinks meaning voltage error) but I did fix the blue lines.. The lines across the screen can be very easily fixed whether they're blue green or red. . No, I mean REALLY easy. Took me longer to get the cover off. Once the front cover is off it takes 10 seconds. This link was also posted recently in one of the posts below as a solution..
http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html
(My lines didn't look like the ones in the picture mine were several evenly spaced blue arcs)

After some research I believe the flash/shutting off problem means the CRT is going. I've also read that it might be the D-board and I'm not even sure that that is... But If it is indeed the CRT then I'll let you know it's very difficult to find a replacement blue CRT as this part has been discontinued.. but I did eventually find an alternate to an alternate part (yes that's the 3rd alternate !)) online for $256. Here: http://store.tv-repair-service-salinas.com/8-733-649-35.html

If you're bold enough to attempt that then good luck and please let us know if it worked.
Or another alternative is there's a whole lot of Boxing Day sales goin' on right now.

Do either the red or the green crts come up at all?? If not the heaters in the blue crt could be bad - loading down the HV and the shutdown circuit turns the set off.. Only repair for that is to replace the blue crt, but I would have it tested first.. In the shop here we use a B&K467 to test for shorts and emission leaks but that's old school.. B&K has since come out with far superior crt tester/rejuvenators..

Yes, you are correct on the phrasing. The CRT's were a common issue with these units and all three must be replaced as sooner or later the green will follow the other two CRT's. It was a great model and had a beautiful picture when operating normally. The CRT's are costing about 200 each for rebuild as the green and blue are mostly no longer available. Your repair cost are going to approach $1000.00 or more.
