Can't Remove Front Panel

I also have the KP-57WV600. I tried removing the front panel, but it simply won't budge. I removed the back panel and saw what was keeping the front panel in place, and still couldn't get it. Have any tips I could use?

From comments at this blog on how to fix lines across Sony Projection TV:
http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html

Comment1:
To remove the cover on the KP57WV600, remove the 5 screws behind each of the speakers. Then pull out the bottom center of the grey panel. It is held in by 4 snap type pins. The cover hinges at the top. Rotate up and be careful not to pull out the wires connected to the front panel. Then proceed as directed here.
Comment2: For those with KP-xxWVxxx TV series you need to remove 5 side screws, just behind the faceplate covering the speakers, next - pull out the 4 round-shaped clips on the botton of the faceplate and last - push-in the top part of the faceplate & pull down at the same time to dislodge the 4 large flat-shaped clips on top.

Comment3: My model required me to removee the 5 screws on the rear facing side panels (LH and RH lower facing aft) then with moderate force grab the lowest edge of the gray front face panel and pull out towards your self. Gently supporting the weight of the panel since there are slotted alignment pins at the top of this panel.

Hope this helps! :)

Sorry, haven't checked this in awhile. Remove all screws from lower right and left side. Grab the entire front lower piece, pull down and towards yourself. It takes a little more pressure than you would guess, because there are four large plastic clasps that have to come out of their slots to release the panel. Once loose, don't pull it away from the set more than a foot, because it will be attached by cables.

I have a paper jam in my MFC -7420. I removed a sheet from the back but there is more stuck in the front. The message says to open front cover and remove drum. I have opened the front cover but...


Don't try to remove the drum by itself while it's still in the machine,
just simply remove the drum and toner cartridge together.

There is no lock you should just be able to pull the cartridge out.

A DLE2532W has a rear control panel. To remove the top, use a putty knife to push the retaining clips in at the seam where the top meets the front panel. 2 clips, about 2 inches in from the L and R side, then the top swings up. Heating element is accessable after you take the front panel off.

You see red and blue lines curved across the screen when there is a blank screen


You need to turn down the screen voltage for the blue and red CRT. I believe the access is through the front on that model.

1) Remove the front grill
2) There should be access panel you need to remove once you remove the front grill. This is where the screen voltage adjustment is located
3) Look for a small black box with six knobs on it. One row is for "Focus" and one row is for "screen". It will be marked, but probably need a flashlight to see which row it is. There will be a "R", "G" and "B" next to each knob to represent Red, Green Blue respectively.

4) Careful with the access panel removed, you are only inches away from very dangerous voltages.
5) slowly turn the R or B knob counterclockwise until the lines on the screen disappear.
Keep your hands away from everything else and only use one hand near the tv. put the other hand behind your back.

6) Once corrected, replace the panel and put the grill cover back on.

How did I correct blue and red lines curved across a blank screen of my KP-57WV600 SONY Projection TV?


This is for if the lines are thin and arc.

You need to turn down the screen voltage for the blue and red CRT. I don't remember if the focus block is in the front or in the back of the tv on this model. Most projections have them in the front.

You could check the back access panel and look for a black box with six knobs as descibed in step 3 below. This is what you are looking for.

follow the steps below if it is located in the front:

1) Remove the front grill
2) There should be access panel you need to remove once you remove the front grill. This is where the screen voltage adjustment is located
3) Look for a small black box with six knobs on it. One row is for "Focus" and one row is for "screen". It will be marked, but probably need a flashlight to see which row it is. There will be a "R", "G" and "B" next to each knob to represent Red, Green Blue respectively.

4) Careful with the access panel removed, you are only inches away from very dangerous voltages.
5) slowly turn the R or B knob counterclockwise until the lines on the screen disappear.
Keep your hands away from everything else and only use one hand near the tv. put the other hand behind your back.

6) Once corrected, replace the panel and put the grill cover back on.

SONY KP-57WV600 - Small green lines across the screen


According to several sites, the problem is with the convergence via the voltage on the color ray gun tubes that get out of adjustment. They are also known as retrace lines

Sony wanted between $150-$300 to diagnose and fix -- instead I was able to complete this repair in less than 15 minutes!
Since I had been through the routine once more and I was sure others are running into this issue,
1. All you need to complete this guide is one flat-head screwdriver and one Phillips screwdriver as well as a delicate touch.
2. Front shot of the television. Their are two screw holes on the front of the unit near the edge of each side right next to the speaker grille.
2_sony_projection_tv_front_screw_locations.jpg

3. Close up shot of the screw hold. It is covered by a plastic cover that has two tabs holding it in. Carefully pry them out with your flat head screwdriver. Do not apply too much pressure or you can break the tabs off. Once the covers are removed, unscrew the two screws with a Philips screwdriver.
3_sony_projection_tv_repair_screws_1.jpg

4. To remove the cover, pull from the bottom of the front case and rotate towards you. Once you rotate it out, the top will disconnect and come loose. Do not pull it off, as there are cords attached. (see picture) Loosen the cables attached with the twist ties and set the front cover to the left side.
4_sony_projection_tv_cover_off.jpg

5. With the speaker grille and cover removed, you now need to remove the wood panel to expose the inner electronics on your Sony HD TV. To do this, remove the four Philips head screws from the panel. Then, pulling from the right, rotate the panel off and the electronics will be exposed.
5_projection_tv_cover_guns_tubes.jpg

6. This is a picture of the inner electronics of your Sony Rear-Projection High Definition television. The little black box towards the front of the unit is where we will concentrate our time as it is the control for the voltage & convergence adjustment.
6_voltage_projection_red_blue_green.jpg

7. When focused in on the controls, you want to concentrate on the bottom row for the voltage / ray gun projection adjustment. The colors are labeled below and from left to right are blue, green, and red. Choose the one that needs to be adjusted and turn ever so slightly with your Philips screwdriver to remove the lines. In my case, the red just needed to be turned 1/8 of a rotation to be back in adjustment. Do not turn to quickly or abruptly or you could possibly damage your TV by varying the voltage too quickly.
