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?

    I think, you TV is rear projection and have 3 CRTs to produce picture. 9 Blinks shows problem in Audio area and you have full audio, check blinks / flash again please.

Vizio P42 HDTV no picture

Try first unplugging power cable for thirty minutes, then plug back, this will drain power from TV completely and will reset it.

See if it works.

I have an LG 42LB5D LCD HD TV that has just developed a blank white screen for television (cable) broadcasts. The audio is still fine. The DVD shows up fine. And, the PIP small screen works. This occurred...

Try to use other dvd movie, if the movie play's normal try to focus in to your digital receiver their maybe only a loosed connection specially the input and output of your digital receiver.
