Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Screen turns red after 10 minutes

I contacted a sony repair facility and they told me that I would need a red tube because they dont rejuvinate any more, but the problem is that the red tubes are discontinued. Do you know how to get the red tube for this tv?

First, lets see exactly what is happening and what is causing it. If your picture starts out fine, and after 10 minutes or so you notice that the picture is getting redder, and the redness slowly gets worse and worse, until finally there is red everywhere with faint curved lines, then chances are your Red Screen control is set just a hair too high. This is a very simply thing to correct. If, on the other hand, the picture is fine for 10 minutes or so and then suddenly flashes very bright red, followed by the set shutting down, then your red picture tube has developed a short in it, usually between the heater and cathode. A good tech might be able to remove the short by arcing. What is your set doing? The KP-51WS500 is one of the newer 16x9 1080i HD sets and the tubes are available from any Sony distributor. When they told you the tubes are not available, that was their way of saying they do not want to bother helping you. The Sony tubes are quite inexpensive, costing about $175, and they come complete with sealed coolant chambers, so replacing a tube is quick and simple.

The screen turns blue after about 2 minutes of turning on the TV


Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.

I have a Sony KP-57WV600 projec. have picture for 10 seconds then screen turns blue for 10 sec.then black and I still have sound red light does blink but I dont know how many times. Called Sony they told...


You have a shorted blue CRT (picture tube)

The problem is that these TVs are known to have defective CRTs but Sony can no longer supply them. There is a company in Texas that rebuilds them, but its an expensive repair.

Its a shame that Sony has not been forced to take care of their customers. I've replaced hundreds of these CRTs and seen hundreds more after the supply ran out.

Sony knew about this issue way back in 2002 but only resolved complaints for a limited time and did nothing to notify owners whom they could easily indentify by serial number.

Let's hope we don't give up our auto industry or we'll soon see the same behavior there.

All screen is red


IF THE SCREEN IS ALL RED WITH VIDEO VISIBLE AND RETRACE LINES. ADJUST SCREEN CONTROL IN THE FRONT FOR THE RED TUBE ONLY. TURN CONTROL COUNTER CLOCKWISE. IF THAT DOESNT DO IT THE TUBE CAN BE REJUVINATED.

My sony triniton kv-32ls35u tv is connected to a sony dvd recorder/sky box when i switch it on with the remote, tv then sky using sky control i am not getting the picture through sky only when its in tv...


It sounds to me like you have a problem with the sony tv. In many cases I have ran into a problem like this. If the tv blinks a certain number of times it is a defect code intended to direct the service person to the problem. I am almost posative that five blinks usually means that there is a problem in the screen circuit or picture tube. If you noticed any discoloration on the screen it means the tube has weakened, but don't lose hope. Sometimes when this problem occurs you can save the set by having your local repair center rejuvinate the picture tube. Using a piece of equiptment designed to burn debris from the filaments, a picture tube restorer/rejuvinator is your best bet in this case. One more side note, you can usually temporairily solve this problem that you are having by slightly adjusting the master screen control located on the flyback transformer, (which is the large, dark colored object with the big red wire coming from it and feeding high voltage to the tube). Hope this information is helpful to you and feel free to contact me if I can further assist you, Russmann.

Picture is going fuzzy and blinking red light...


This is the classic symptom of a CRT (picture tube)that is starting do get weak. The picture takes longer and longer to come on, it appears greenish and blurry, and it blinks on and off in different scenes, and when it is off the timer LED blinks 5 times. Sony has a circuit called "IK Blanking" which monitors and adjusts the colors in the picture tube, and shuts the picture off when the tube is getting too weak. The good news is that the Sony tubes always respond beautifully to a CRT rejuvination (recharge), and the picture returns to perfect. Since the set is 36 inches and VERY heavy, it should be serviced in-house and an appropriate charge for a service call for your set should be around $150.
