Question about Sony KP-61HS20 TV

21 Answers

I see a box and Video 1 "behind" my picture

On my Sony tv, I see a faint outline of a box and the words Video 1 when I am watching tv. The box also shows up on the video 5 option where I run my dvds. The picture looks fine, but I can see this faint purplish outline behind the picture. I've heard of things being "burnt" into computer monitors, but I'm not sure why that might have happened on a tv.

I would appreciate any info. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I can also see it on all the other outputs as well. If I go to Video 2, Video 3, Video 4 , Video 5 (which I use for DVD's) , or even AUX.



    If this was burnt in, it seems as if I would see the same Video 1 on all the different outputs

  • presnellchri Sep 25, 2008

    This tv has not been used for any video games, and has rarely been used.

    I can also see it on all the other outputs as well. If I go to Video 2, Video 3, Video 4 , Video 5 (which I use for DVD's) , or even AUX.

    If this was burnt in, it seems as if I would see the same Video 1 on all the different outputs

  • presnellchri Sep 25, 2008

    I will try that tonight. Do you have any idea what the outline of a box over most of the screen might be? It is very faint, but almost looks like the tv is set up to receive a picture size or format different from what it is receiving.

  • presnellchri Sep 25, 2008

    Wow. Luckily I dont have that problem. Mine is very faint, and you can only see it when there is a white or light colored background.



    Im thinking the problem is not it being burnt in because the actual label will change depending on the input I use. It will even change to AUX when I click on that input. The fact that it will do that seems to eliminate the burnt in issue I've heard about.

    Yes, I cn confirm that is the model number.



    Thanks

  • presnellchri Sep 26, 2008

    What is causing it to show up?

  • presnellchri Sep 26, 2008

    I have toggled the display button, and it produces a different look than this that I see "behind" the screen. When I hit the display button, a green very prominent Video 1 appears, and when I hit it again, it goes away. The very faint Video 1 and square box still remain

  • presnellchri Sep 27, 2008

    Unfortunately that is not the problem. I am able to activate and de-active my twin view, and when I return to full screen, the faint iamge is still there.



    Thanks

  • presnellchri Sep 27, 2008

    I have tried this, and it made no difference.



    I dont know if it makes a difference, but my cable provider is directv

  • presnellchri Sep 27, 2008

    Brightness is set in the middle of the range

  • presnellchri Sep 28, 2008

    I tried the reset and it didnt help. Any other ideas?

  • presnellchri Sep 29, 2008

    I have this manual, and it does not address my problem

  • presnellchri Oct 01, 2008

    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried this and it was already set in the off position. I reset it as off and it didnt change my problem.



    Thanks

  • presnellchri Oct 01, 2008

    I dont understand how something can be burnt in the screen if it changes each time I change the input. If it always said Video 1 I would agree, but if I hit AUX, it then says AUX.

  • presnellchri Oct 16, 2008

    I cant see how something can be burnt into the screen if it changes

  • presnellchri Jan 04, 2009

    I am certain this image is not burnt into my screen because the title changes depending on what input I use.



    Once again, what I see is a very faint outline of a box, which a title above it that reflects the different inputs. Ex. I can change the name of one of my video inputs to say DTV, and this is what would now faintly show up.



    Any other suggestions?

Its definitly burnt in to the display.....that would happen from someone hitting the recall button on hte remote which leaves the display up saying video 1....also pip ws probably left on for a while too thus causing it to sit on the screen causing the burnt in affect.....replace the crt and you shouldnt have any problems...but it will be a good size chunk of money if there isno warranty left on the tv.

    1. On the television remote control, press the TV FUNCTION button if available.

    2. Press the DISPLAY button.
    3. NOTES:


      • The DISPLAY button may need to be pressed repeatedly to remove all the displayed channel information from the television screen.

      • The
        television will continue to display the channel number or video text if
        there is no signal source connected to the corresponding input. This is
        normal operation.

      • Additional information, settings, and reset procedures are available in your user guide.

A variety of issues can influence poor picture quality, including settings on the TV, electrical devices in close proximity to the TV, and connection issues with the signal source. Follow the steps below to troubleshoot issues related to poor picture quality.
IMPORTANT:

NOTE: If model-specific information is required to complete any of the steps below, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the TV. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony Support Web site.
  1. Make sure there is no glare or reflection from an external light source on the TV screen.
  2. Turn off any electrical or battery-operated devices that may be creating radio frequency (RF) interference. NOTE: Vacuum cleaners, fluorescent and halogen lights, and some battery-operated devices (including toys) have been known to create RF interference.
  3. If your TV has a Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) function, turn this feature on.
  4. If your TV has a Digital Reality Creation (DRC) feature, try turning it off or on.
  5. If your TV has a Sharpness or Picture Mode setting, try adjusting these options. NOTE: If the television menu is fuzzy or blurry, then service may be required.
  6. If you have a projection TV, try adjusting the convergence of the picture tubes.
  7. Try plugging the power cord into a different electrical outlet and/or surge protector. NOTE: These symptoms can occur if the wall outlet is improperly wired or not producing the proper voltage. If using a surge protector or extension cord, it also could be faulty.
  8. If the issue is still not resolved, select the appropriate device below to troubleshoot the signal source and connections.

Try to reset first if nothing happens we proceed another solution;

Resetting the TV

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can saved time.
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet for 3 - 4 hours.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

hope this may help;

If you have not done it already, try also unplugging all cables, including power cable, and leave the tv like that overnight.

Regarding the burnt CRT, it is still possible, the words video 1, video 5 etc are projected on screen in a way that is not different from signal you got on old game consoles, when a new menu is projected on that area of the screen, the burnt CRT will let you see the faint video x menu for a while.

Try first unplugging everything for few hours, this will drain power from tv and reset it completely.

Reset your TV channels and reset the remote, then make it turn on. The display if still occur then it would be display and will gone
by removing the capacitor and change it which is joined with the CRT. It will reset the display and discharge out.

When you change inputs, there is a merger of the actual input and the internal character generator that creates the "video 1" display, for example. That should be removed after a period of time. It sounds to me like the merger is continuing, but only at a lower level. Can you confirm that your model number is KP-61HS20? I'll look into the video merge circuits to see if there is a defect that can cause this. I suspect that the "turning off' of this input selection is not happening completely. There is no burn-in. As you pointed out, burn-in would be consistant and on all inputs exactly the same.

    Thanks for the update. I'll look into this more tonight when I get the service manual.



    Dan

  • ABRsvcs Oct 01, 2008

    I couldn't find the service manual for this one locally, and I'm traveling so I can't get a copy easily at the moment. Basically, you are getting video bleed from the character generator that creates the video display. There is essentially an electronic switch that allows the mixing of the main picture witht the generated one. Either the electronic switch is allowing some leakage or there is crosstalk somewhere else. This is not likely to be found remotely as some signal tracing will be necessary.

Hi,

If I may offer an alternative view... could it be that your TV has a PIP (picture in picture) feature and it has been enabled?

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Incidentally, in some versions, the PIP is called Twin View.

  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Sep 26, 2008

    You could actually confirm this by relocating your DVD to Video 1, play a known good disc, and watch a regular TV. Se if the DVD movie could be likewise seen superimposed or behind the regular TV program.

It appears like the video 1 display might have been left ON for quite a while, causing it to burnt in the CRT itself not the screen. Unfortunately there is not much you can do now to erase it unless you use a picture tube rejuvenator to clean it.

Posted on Sep 25, 2008

  • Jaime Hernandez Sep 25, 2008

    If when you change inputs, you see them with different numbers and video1, have you try pressing display on the original remote for that display to go away?

If you can see it at all times then yes it has been burnt into your screen. this may have happened if you were using some kind of electronic (game console) on the video 1 setting the tv may have also been left on that channel for a long period of time.

I can see faint blue lines occassionally, is this a convergance chip problem?


One of two problems you have.

One is if you go to a unused video input, you should only see the video input number in green, ie video 1 etc.

If you see some blue in the background or faint curved lines you have a screen problem--it may be adjustable and I can tell you how.

Second, these sets rarely have intermittent convergence problems: Picture will look 3d in some way red, green or blue outlines etc.

Let me know which you have and I will help.

The model is more prone to the first problem than the second. Reply to this post with a comment if you need my help.

Unfortunately, this is a very common problem with LCD televisions and some plasmas as well.
This is what the industry calls burn-in. That image is on your actual screen as opposed to it being caused by any other component in the tv. Really there is no convenient remedy short of replacing the actual LCD screen which can be done. Even by embedding another picture to lessen the effect of the burn-in would never restore the picture to its true quality. Good luck and God bless you.
