Question about Sony KP-53S35 53" Rear Projection Television

TV screen won't turn on only sound

Red light for timer/standby keeps blinking when I turn on tv (nonstop) and won't turn on. There is sound. Just started doing this yesterday - the day before there was one time that it took a while to turn on. I think my husband said it went green on the screen too. Any suggestions? Is it time for new one or can this be fixed?

If you have this sort of problem with the Sony (maybe others) where one color is dominant just before it quits you might be able to fix this quite easily. What I did on my 57" Sony was to remove the speaker panel (two screws hidden by round plastic covers). Next I removed the four screws holding the wood panel behind the speakers. Behind that panel is a black box with three dials labeled red, green, blue. Whichever color was showing up is the one you'll want to adjust. BE VERY CAREFUL HERE! Do not do this with the TV plugged in and only turn dial (phillips head) at most 1/8 inch counter clockwise. Once you've done this, plug the TV in and turn it on. If it worked, put it back together and watch the tube! If the problem appears to have gotten worse or only slightly better, you'll need to play with it a little. Remember: only very slight turns. If you turn it too much you may very well blow something and then you'll have a very large door stop!

Good Luck and God Bless

Good day, cjnewcarguy;
If you like new cars you may enjoy a new LCD Flat Panel TV. Try unplugging the TV for about 2-3 minutes, plug back in. Working... no?? The average repair cost of projection TV is about $400.00 to $550.00.
Good luck, big IRISH.

TV turns red,shuts off, stand-by light blinking 8Times


Eight blinks - Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board.

My Sony wega tv won't turn on goes into standby red light blinks 10 times then shuts off?


Look at the owner manual as the 10 blinks is a error code or Google the model number to locate that information--Sony error codes are general and often misleading.

I would if looking at the set inspect the lamp first.

Hi,
Is is standby light blinking red or any other light? Let me know how many times red standby light blinking after three seconds long pause to provide you helpful info.
It seems pop sound was due to broken lamp, please check lamp inside tv and if it is broken, replace it to solve tv problem.
Hope this will help.
Thanks.

I have a Sony KDS-R50XBR1 that has no picture. When I turn on the TV, the green Power/Standby LED light blinks for about 30 seconds, then turns red and blinks five times. The Power/Standby LED repeats...


  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen A2 slightly.

I have a sony KP-57WV600 Big Screen Rear projection television. The problem is this: When I first turn the tv on the picture is fine, than after it warms up- the screen turns red. What would the problem...


Let me know when TV warms up does it go to standby?
If yes, standby light would be blinking, let me know how many times it blinks?
And if TV does not go to standby mode, does picture remain with red tone?
