Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Sony KP-51WS510 I have had my sony since 1999 and had a repair man out 3 times. All 3 times he adjusted the horizontal. It is doing the same thing - white lines across a green screen then shutting off and blinking - 1st 6 times and now 8 times. How do I remove the speaker cover and adjust horizontal myself. Sony of course told me to call repairman again. Set was under warranty - but not any more. I should have paid closer attention to service repair. Thank you.

I have a similar problem... can you help me?

I really need some help with my 4 year old KP-51WS510... The TV was working fine until for about 6 months ago.. The the following started to happen.

1) for the past 6 months, when I turn on the TV, the picture does not fill in for several minutes. Only 1/2 the picture screen fills in (showing the full image, but on 1/2 the screen gradually filling into the whole screen). The picture is a bit distorted. Looked like a smile towards the bottom of the screen. After 5 minutes or so, the picture filled in completely and everything was OK until today’s changes.

2) Now, in addition to what I described above, the picture just became extremely magenta-ish in color. I can see the image completely and the TV is viewable, however it has an extreme magenta-ish hue. Also, it flickers quite a bit and there are greenish lines going across the tv. The picture is completely viewable with no distortion issues once the TV is warmed up. The indicator light above the power light on the TV blinks 5 times.

Any ideas on what might be wrong and how to fix it? I’m pretty handy, please let me know what components need to be replaced on how the repair should be completed. Also – Please provide me sources for the parts. I would appreciate any info regarding service manuals etc.

Thanks
Vinay

You need a green CRT thats whay you have the white kind of concave lines with the green screen. You can try adjusting the green screen control but you need anew CRT ( tube) the speaker cover has two plastic plugs that get removed on the lower edge os the grille which covers the two screws that hold the grille on. If you need more assistancr or where to get a green CRT let me know as I have a link that has some green and red Tubes for your model.

Need the code for the remote for a sony kp-51ws510


You need a Sony original remote--even a Sony universal will not access the menu.

With the Sony remote (Almost any Sony projection remote will work) you can adjust in the customer mode or enter the TECH menu for fine adjustment all over the screen.

If you get one and do not know how to enter the TECH menu--let me know and I will tell you how to do it and adjust there.

You may want to recheck your connections coming off the blue tube to the board. Also check the IC links/Pico fuses on the power board. I have a repair manual for this Tv if you need it. shanesebay304@yahoo.com

D board is Deflection Board and has convergence ICs qty 02. If tv has problem of convergence, either you need to replace complete board or replace defective parts ( STK ICs) check IC8001 & IC8002 in D board.
If you have electronics knowledge and experience of tv repair, you can make it.
Related service manual of product made things easy because of information, parts location, applied voltages, part numbers and descriptions etc.
Need further help, let me know to provide you more info.
Thank you.

Sony KP-51WS510 51 in. Dark picture


I finally heard from Sony tech assist. You have a bad high voltage transformer. As the set warms, the high voltage decreases and this is causing the problem. At this point, I would refer service to a local Sony authorized center.
