Mine did the same thing this week. It was caused by the white ribbon cord. The cord got bent over and over as you flip the tv open and broke the wires inside. The cord is soldered directly to the circuit boards on both ends of the unit. I do not think an average joe can fix it because it requires soldering a new cord to the circuit boards on both ends. I am going to buy a new unit for around 200$ and install it.

I have a Sony, 54" Projection Screen HDTV that I bought in 2002. I believe it is a 1080i. When I am waatching TV, I notice that when the screen is mostly black, for instance a night scene, the black areas...


Confirm the actual model number as the one indicated in the title is not HD.

Some of these sets had bad picture tubes that on a black screen or blank video input may in your case show faint curved lines and or some color (red,green or blue) present in the background.

If this is the case there is a fairly simple way to attempt to adjust something for this--not in the customer menu but fairly easy to get at and try.


Most of these sets were KP51ws500, 57500 etc.

Everything that is supposed to be black is showing


Hi,It sounds like a problem with the color wheel or DMD board. The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will hear ,humming,buzzing,high pitch noises ,you might also experiment color distortion ,black and white picture. This is how the DMD works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!

The screen looks out of focus and the top and botton bend inward.


Remove front bottom panel behind it is a small black control box top controls are focus controls for R/G/B and Bottom 3 controls are your screen drives adjust one at a time turn off G/B adjust red first,then Do Green and Blue fter adjusting focu to each tube leave them set then adjust screen drive turn color off adjust RGB for a Black and white picture get as close as you can then turn color back If after doing this you still have blurry looking picture look down into Tubes you should be able to see picture clearly in each one if you cannot see picture then projection Fluid need to be changed out.

No Picture, but I have sound!


Your color tube has probably went out that is why you have sound but no picture, you will have to call a tv repair place or where you bought it from to get an estimate on having it repaired

Picture and sound problem at 21" sony waga color tv


This is not a simple question to answer without looking at it, my recommendation is to call a service center in your area. That's my professional opinion.

Tv screen and sound are lost for about 10 seconds.


Can you give me the model number? If this is a projection monitor, it sounds like the ballast for the lamp is dying. Not fatal, but probably in the range of $200 to fix at the local service depot.
