Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Sony 57" rear prijection TV has a fast flashing light and will not turn on

We have had our Sony for less than 3 years and after 1 year we had the same problem exactly.

Your watching TV hear a weird noise and then the screen goes blank and a red light flashes several times and then will NEVER turn on again.

Each time you power up same red flashing light.

1st time we called a sony repair man - $400 later they replaced a box, left the old one for us, said we may need it again - he sees this alot.

so last week, we bought a new one - and it has not fixed the problem.
Is there a reset button or specal codes you can press to get into the screen?

TV has been working great for the past 6 years, this morning when turning on the TV nothing happens except the standby light flashes about 9 times on and off. No click like I usually hear when turning on...


Hi Dave,

We have had this same problem twice now - the first time under warranty (no problem) and now currently. The 9-blink error code refers to needing to replace two diodes on the G board. Specifically, D6301 and D6116.

The warranty time, the repair guy came and resoldered the new diodes onto the G Board, reinstalled the board, and was on his way. We had no problems for the next 3 years.

THIS time I ordered the two diodes from Andrews Electronics (www.andrewselectronics.com) am removing the G board myself and taking JUST THE BOARD to a local TV repair guy. This is a LOT cheaper than calling Sears or taking the whole TV to the repair guy. Here are the links to the specific diodes:

D6301 - http://parts.andrewselectronics.com/search/electronic-parts/parts/7/6-500-567-21.aspx

D6116 - http://parts.andrewselectronics.com/search/electronic-parts/parts/7/8-719-081-97.aspx

They are a heck of a lot less expensive than other places and the customer service I received was great!

I hope this helps!!

Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television and help with Sony KP-57WV600 57 in. ... still have sound, does this mean the projection lamp gone bad? When you turn on the TV, you can see a unclear image for few...


with this type of tv, you can be almost certain that something has gone wrong with the lamp or the cooling system for the lamp. the cost associated with these kinds of fixes are usually more than the unit is worth. The life span on rear projection TV's is not all that good,5-10 years. some last longer. but for most this is a good estimate. this tv has an auto focus feature that might help. also if this TV has a SD slot for upgrades, give it a try as well.

Sony KP-57WS500 57 in. Rear Projection Television


THE LED ON THE FRONT OF THE SET SHOULD BE BLINKING IN A SERIES OF BLINKS THEN PAUSE AND REPEAT THE SEQUENCE. IN ANY CASE IT NEEDS TO BE SERVICED BY A SONY AUTHORIZED SERVICER.

Hi,
4 times flash of standby light shows that TV has problem in Vertical Deflection area and possible causes are IC1509(V out) is broken and / or Q1505(V Pulse Buffer) is broken.
Please check / test above said IF you have experience of TV repair.

57 "SONY, DOES NOT TURN ON BUT STAND BY LIGHTS BLINKS 9X, THEN STARTS OVER


Hello,
I dont think your unit has big problem.
1. 9X blinks means 9 VDC supply is shorted either in A or B board.
2. IC708 is faulty in A-board
3.PS701 or PS702 is opened in A-board.

Dont forget to Rate!

Good Luck
