Question about Sony KP-65XBR10W 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

KP-65XBR10W Flash of Red!!

After on for awhile the set flashes red then turns off. I had an issue about 1 year ago where red lines appeared. I adjusted the voltage to remove these lines. Now the screen flashes red and then shuts off, goes to stand-by. The lights do flash but I am not sure how many times. Do I need a new CRT? If so are they available?

It sounds as though both of you have intermittent shorts in the picture tubes which I have seen before. Unfortunately, due to the age of the units and the likely scenario that you will be looking at relacing the other CRT's, it is probably not a good investment to repair the sets. If you are still interested in repairs, there are places that will rebuild the CRT's, but I believe the original parts are no longer available. If you found this solution to your liking, please be sure to rate me. Thanks.

I have a Sony KP-65XBR10W 65-inch HDTV - green flashes shut down

Most likely you have a Green CRT that is failing. Sony no longer stocks the CRT assemblies for most of the older Projection sets. Instead what is required is to send the Green CRT assembly back to Sony (minus the Delta Lens), so they can replace the Tube on the Optical Coupler. This is a major cost of about 400.00 to 500.00 for the CRT plus the the tear down and reassembly time. Then you need to do a major Convergence alignment because the other two CRTs are aligned to the Green CRT. Due to the cost and the fact that Sony will not be supporting the older sets much longer, I would not invest the money into it.
I hope this helps,

Sony KP-65XBR10W After awhile, shuts off

It sounds as though you have an bad blue CRT. Due to the age of the unit and the likely case that you also have weak green and red CRT's, based on the age, it would probably not be a good investment. Please be sure to rate my response if you found it helpful.

Green flashes then tv turns off

or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.

Bright green flash and red arching lines

You need to check the bulb in the back of the set as it could be on the way out . just check to see if the bar in the bulb has gone black as it is a good sign the bulb is on it's way out . the bulbs only last 2-3 years or 4000 hours . If thats ok you most probaly have dry joints on the tuner , they just need resoldering
