Question about Sony KP-57HW40 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Red Screen Hello! We have a Sony KP-57HW40 57 inch TV. The other night, I heard a small "click" almost like the power went out on the TV. I looked up and the screen was completely bright red.........I immediately shut the TV off, and let it sit for a minute, thinking it was a fluke thing happening. I turned the TV back on, and the picture was back, but within 15-30 seconds, the picture started turning pink, then back to bright red. We moved the TV to another room thinking what the heck, it's worth a try! Same thing. Any help on this that we can do ourselves or is it time for the pros? Any help would be great.....thanks.

Tv comes on for a few minutes then goes off

If you take off the front bottom panel of the tv wich is easy. Then you will see 6 tuning knobs at the bottom middle of the tv .the top 6 control contrast for the lights dont mess with those. the bottom 3 are the power to each light.red is bottom left if your screen went blue it makes sense that the red is starting to go but if you turn down the power to it left 1/8 turn it should fix it for awhile .Its easy.

Good Day, menudude;

The Sony your friend gave you is a 2000 Model and cost about $2,000.00 and you don't want to spend $400.00 to get it repaired? GET THE TV REPAIRED FOR THE MONEY.

Sony tv KP-61HS10 lenses wont align

This is common in those sets. One of your convergence IC's has stopped working and needs to be replaced. The convergence IC should be replaced and the convergence circuits realigned by someone with experience in Sony projection sets.
