Question about Sony KP-61V85 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Sony KP-61V80 wont turn on

Problem started as lines moving vertically through screen (looked like a vcr tape tracking but was barely noticable). The lines would go away when the tv was turned off for a minute or two. Problem got a little worse (happened more often) and then the tv suddenly shut off.

When plugged in, there is an initial "click" and then the standby indicator holds red constant. I pulled the panel from the rear of the tv and gave an initial 'look over' and also checked the fuses and everything looked ok . It was mentioned that it could be a HV problem or maybe a shorted CRT? Anyone have any advice or opinions?

    I plugged the tv up this evening and listened and watched for any shorting or anything. There is a slight buzzing sound coming from the little white plug where the AC cord comes into the tv. After switching the unit on and off a few times, a small blue/round capacitor began to smoke. When looking into the back of the tv, the cap is located a few inches to the right of the FBT and directly behind a heatshield where a driver is located (looks like a large IGBT). So much for being an easy fix...

This is a very easy fix actually all you need to do is replace that cap and the set should be fine, this is a very common problem on your model. If you look on the board and give me the location of the cap I will be happy to look up a part number for you.

Sony kp-53xbr45 please let me know step by step how to enter convergence service thank you


Hello,

To enter into the convergence service of your sony, follow the steps below;
  1. Press "Menu" on the remote control. Use the up- or down-arrow button to move the cursor to "Setup" and then press "Return."
  2. Use the up or down arrow to move the cursor to "Convergence" and press "Return." This will bring up the convergence-adjustment screen.
  3. Press the up or down arrow to move the cursor to the line you want to adjust (either vertical or horizontal for red and blue) and press "Return."
  4. Press the up or down arrow again to move that line until it converges with the center green line and press "Return."
  5. Repeat to adjust the other lines until all three lines converge and are seen as a white cross.
  6. Press "Menu" to exit the convergence menu and return to the original screen.
You can as well follow these steps;
  1. Press the "Power" button to turn your TV on.
  2. Wait at least 30 minutes before you adjust the convergence in your television. This allows your TV ample time to warm up before you make the adjustment.
  3. Turn your TV to a cable channel or to an antenna channel with a picture that you can see. A music channel with a static shot of music notes isn't the kind of picture you need. Instead, look for a picture like what you would see on a movie, sitcom or drama.
  4. Press the "Flash Focus" button located in the front panel on your TV. You may need to open a hidden compartment on the front of your TV to access this button. The convergence will repair itself automatically after you hit this button. It may take several minutes.
Any of the two processes are detailed steps on how to enter your convergence service.

Take care

No picture..


hello,,,,,
Picture mute is activated ,it can be vertical amp faulty or one of the c.r.t drive faulty,therefore the mute circuit is active.Increase G2 voltage for the any of the three c.r.t and notice screen .Vertical amp is faultry than you will see horizontal line across the screen and if you see full screen with flyback lines ,means c.r.t drive is having fault.isolate one by one c.r.t drive.
