Question about Sony KP-57WS520 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Screen is blank!!!!!!

After 4 years of use with no problems, the tv is on the glitch.... the audio is working fine, however, there is no picture whatsoever and the Standby LED light keeps blinking. Does this usually signal that the bulb or lamp is burned out? Some help would be greatly appreciated....and quickly!

Thanks, Misty

    I am not sure...i didn't know that the blinking indicated the problem until i started researching the solution today. I will check it this evening and hopefully that will solve the problem. I don't think it is the dreaded 9 blinks problem that i have read about, because i have full audio, it is just the screen that is dark. I am going to check the bulb tonight too, i have read that it may be burnt out and that is all.

    If I am counting correctly, there are 10 blinks... I thought 11 at first, but then I read somewhere that 10 is the max, so I know that there is not 9, but 10.... any clue as to price to fix or service needed? I have scheduled for Sears to come out next Friday to fix, but they charge $100 no matter what... if it is an easy fix I can handle it.... looked inside back cover last night, just bleow the 3 "lenses or lamps" there is a bunch of wiring and what looks like 3 bulbs... these bulbs are getting some power, they glow lightly when tv is turned on, however, once standby goes through its blinking, the tv shuts off and the lights go out...any help?

Blank screen at first with bars in the bottom of screen that eventually goes away and tv starts to work fine


Good picture. You have a board going out inside your light engine. Unfortunatly it cannot be replaced. However you can contact Toshiba. They will mail you a box that you can put your light engine in and ship it back to them. They will fix it and ship it back to you. This will cost a few hundred dollars though.

When you turn the plasma on do you get a solid indicator light on the front of the tv? You also get sound just fine, but a blank screen and no picture. I'm still looking for a definite answer, but I repaired a Hitachi 42edt41a that had the exact same problems. On that plasma there was an X-sustain board and a Y-sustian board that needed to be replaced. Hopefully someone else can give their assistance as well.

Mitsu vs-5042 Works then picture goes out. Thumping works sometim


If you occasionally have a picture then you stand a good chance of repairing this tv. There are bad grounds on the deflection board. Start with the board that has the flyback. I do not know the year of your tv. Sometimes the same model may have an option improvement than one couple of months earlier. The first suspected problem would be the vertical IC. In some cases this ic is located on the convergence board and in others the flyback board. It has seven pins and is the TDA version. Located on a large heatsink. Resolder this and any other grounds on both board. Some will tell you the P I P board is bad. This is a free standing board that can be removed and replaced. But please do the earlier option first.

Daytek DT3220 power button flashes green 4 (5) times, no picture


The power supply voltages might look good on an oscilliscope or using a DC meter, but that doesn't really tell you if the supply is good.

Your TV has an unusual symptom, however 99% of the problems on these TVs are caused by the power supply. I have had 3220s that won't power on, the remote or controls on the TV won't work, or the unit blanks out and all sorts of other odd problems. The power supply can test fine, but if you substitute it the TV will work fine.
Sorry to say you're up a creek. The good news is that just about any 5,12,24V power supply for a 32:" TV will work if you are comfortable rewiring the connectors. I have done this a few times and rescued the TVs from an early grave (I'm actually just about to start on another one now). The pinout is written on the board, and make sure the power supply you want to use also has the pinouts marked on the board.

TV screen goes blank but power stays on


Sounds like the CRTs are going into protective blanking due to the vertical output ic needing to be resolderd. Try resoldering the vertical IC that may possibly fix the issue.

I do not see any reference on this problem and I even checked with Sony. If you are on a cable box, I suspect that is the problem.
