Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture gets darker

When I first turn the TV on everything works fine. After about 20 mins the screen starts to flicker a little bit and the picture gets darker. If I tap the side of the tv, it comes back, but then gets dark again. Any suggestions?

Sony pfm-42x1 flickering screen when turning tv on


OKAY I found the Problem!! Bad Caps Compositors. I Proved this in 2 ways. First I took off the Back(always make sure the TV is UNPLUG) In the photo above I put my finger on the capacitors. I found some that where NOT FLAT ON TOP(You can kinda see in the photo too). I could feel a little nipple on top.(Some times you can see if their busted open but not in this case) so I felt them and the bottom right and top left area in red in the photo where not flat. I took my dryer(My wife really) and warmed them up for about 2 minuets each then another minuet rotating back then forth. I leaned the t.v. up to lean on the frame and plug it in. I continued warming the capacitors up and in about 2 Min the T.V. has stop blinking. Much better then the 20-30 min. So the hunt for the Capacitors is on. It will be some work to get the boards out. If everything is done delicately The Soldor job is easy for me. I am going to buy the 8 but replace 1 board at a time until the TV works and put the other on the side for next time or put them up on E-bay. I hope this helped Please like if this helped you. ea0a96a3-fb82-4ec0-89f4-76b4080e9c6e.jpg 1b190ebd-5d69-4553-a009-840d29ab4c87.jpg ab9b51d0-6e1d-4cce-b822-e80d0fde9163.jpg

Used to flicker, now dead


You possibly need to replace either the Main board, or the power board, they both can be purchased online, and you can either install yourself or go to a site like Onforce.com and accept bids.

Screen gets darker.


The blinking light indicates there is a problem much like a check engine light in a car.

Unfortunatly this is an older TV CRT based and is problably only capable of 1080i HD resolution if your lucky. I would watch it til lthe TV dies then replace it. If its unwatcable then its tiem to replace this set. If a CRT is going bad then its time for a new TV finding new CRT's is just about impossibel these days.

Picture is unwatchable


I have not seen this happen in a long time. Ok first of all that is a sign of poor High voltage regulation, which is not user serviceable. I suggest you find one of the shops on Fixya that can fix this for you, or you can take it to a shop near you.
