Rear Projection Sony KP-57WS600

I have a rear projection Sony KP57WS600. When I turn it on, it turns blue with blue and red arched lines at the top and bottom and turns off after 15 sec. What could be the possible problems and how much will it cost to repair it?

    Thanks for the info. If the blue CRT tube is gone, then the green and red should follow, if not already gone. This puts the repair costs, with parts and labor at around $900.



    Thus, we will say goodbye to it and purchase a new one.



    Best wishes.

Sounds like the blue crt is shorted and thats causing the red voltage to increase causing retrace lines then shutting your set down. You can get new CRTs at the following link with free shipping but they are pricey.

I have blue arched lines and blue screen


HI:
Your problem is the blue CRT or picture has gone bad, you will need to have the picture replaced, there are three tubes in this model rear projection television. Red, Green, and Blue. Replaceing the blue tube is the only option for normal operation to resume. It may be hard to find the tube, but you can try contacting this website for the part www.vdc.com, they manufacture and usually have stocks of sony picture tubes and rebuilt ones as well. The company's name is Video Display Corporation...

Open up the front of the set by removing the speaker screen and the black piece of particle board. on the bottom right you will see 4 knobs. Turn those knobs slowly till the arcs go away. The 3 knobs on the bottom are for color. the 3 on top are for the focus.
