This is one of a group of sets that had bad picture tubes (RED, GREEN AND BLUE).

The tubes are no longer available from Sony and only available on a rebuild basis---very expensive.

There is something easy that requires no parts you can try in an attempt to cure it. Takes about 15 minutes and I can tell you how and what to do.

If this is of interest to you rate this solution as very helpful and comment here and I will assist you.

Peta Han - We had this problem and ultimately ended up replacing the TV. The TV would behave the same way with green arcs and then turns off. A few times we paid $75 (twice) to a technician who was able to come adjust the wired screws with a screwdriver. This would keep the TV on, but not really change the green archs. After doing that twice we gave up and bought a new TV. All the repair people said that we would not be able to buy a replacement 'tube' to fix it. Seems to be a problem with this Sony TV. Similar to this video posted on YouTube thought not exact: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDgYOVDYV7Y

Wd-73737 wont turn on blinking green light


First is if you are able to get it to turn on and blue screen only appears it will shut down as no signal noted.

If you can get it on with Mitsubishi remote : Menu, 1,2,3 enter

This is the soft reset and the set also has a hard reset.

Try the soft reset first and let me know what happens.

Need to clean lenses and do manual focus/alignment of guns on a VS-5055. How do I get access to them and adjust? Thank you.


the lenses are accessable by removing lower back of unit,clean them with a damp paper towel-wipe them off with a dry one.put back back on unit.
screen/focas controls are in front of unit.remove speaker grill remove black cover using phillips screwdriver.you will see 2 sets of controls.one row is focas.one row is screen controls.red,green,blue.turn each focas control slowly to get the clearest picture for each color.screen controls are touchy(if you turn then too high unit will shut off)if the black and white picture was good i would not adjust screen controls.if it was bad turn blue and green screens down all the way.picture is now red turn green up until it turns yellow then turn blue up until it turns white

Hitachi 46510 blue screen-Shuts down


Good Day, 6slimshandy9;

Try and look this;

Shuts down at turn on, LEDs D955 & D956 come on & turn off asap, the rest of the LEDs on power supply will go off slowly.
Cause: Found QEA6 (2315381) and QEA7(2315391) shorted in Blue CRT PWB.

I hope this was helpful, big IRISH. Or try unplugging the blue crt socket and if it turns off. If it stays on suspect bad CRT.

Sony turns on and off again


My tv too had a blue screen problem. Then it started to shut down after staying on for less than a minute. I thought that I would with a huge repair bill but I followed the directions at this link: http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html and now my tv works perfectly.

Blue crt assmbly maybe?


its very possible that the blue CRT is horting the set out. Heres how you can test it. Remove the speaker grille and access panel behind the grille and you will see the crts. remove the blue crt circuit board from the end of the blue crt and make sure it isnt touching anything then try powering up the set if it doesnt shut down then you have found the problem and you will need a new crt. or you can switch the blue circuit with the green and try it iwth the blue on green and the green on the blue then if the screen turns green before shutting down you will know that its a problem in the blue drive circuit and not the crt. lety me know if you need further assistance.

Blue Screen


Your blue crt has a short - you can verify this by unplugging the socket from the blue crt and powering up the set and you should see a yellowish looking picture with just the red and green crt's operating. You can try turning down the screen control pot (B) for blue with the blue crt on (just to the point where you no longer see retrace lines in the picture on a blank input)Sony has had a lot of problems with the crt's on these models and sooner or later all the crt's will fail - For a permanent repair all must be changed.
