Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

RED SCREEN First had red horizontal lines going across entire screen. Screen would flash and then turn off. Letting the TV cool down the line stayed but the tv would stay on for awhile. Now the screen has turned red, no images and then turns itself off with sound remaining. Is this going to be a costly repair?

    It is less expensive to replace the TV. Sony should be ashamed of itself the way it knew they had a problem and ignored their customer base. When compnanies act inappropriatly and authorities cannot help the consumer has only one tool left to deal with the situation and that is not purchase a product from that company. That is what I am doing. SONY is full of bologna!

Screen is red with lines when channel is changed


If its a kp-51hw40 : go to an unused video input and look at the screen---if it is redish in the background with curved faint trace lines you have one of two things wrong; First: the red "screen" control may be set too high. Second: you may have a problem with the RED picture tube.


To try to adjust the RED screen down you have to remove the entire front grill plate on the front of the TV(some have screws on the back on either side that have to be removed---and then you should be able to pop it out. Behind it there is a masonite inspection plate held in with screws----Once you have that off look for a SMALL SQUARE BLACK PLASTIC BLOCK; it has 6 black adjustable controls---you have to use a flashlight and look carefully---one row left to right will be marked FOCUS--DON'T TOUCH THOSE---THE OTHER ROW left to right will be marked SCREEN; if you look carefully you will see marked by each r (red) g (Green) b (blue)
you want to locate the RED SCREEN CONTROL.

WITH the set still on a blank video input where you can see it clearly turn the RED Screen Control to the left until the lines and red tint go away---do this slowly and make sure you are adjusting the RED screen--not the FOCUS.


IF this has been helpful give me a vote here as I do this for free; yesterday I adjusted one of these in a home that was blue with the faint lines---about 15 minute job for me.

Red lines on Sony KP51HW40 Rear projection TV


Yeah, seen that more times than I shoulda in the last 4 years. The red picture tube has a cathode to heater short. That means it's no good. That red picture tube is no longer availible. But all is not lost. There is a company that rebuilds those tubes reasonably. Most reputable tv shops will know this. The ones I've done cost around $450 out the door. One minor hitch is that with all the shipping involved the job usually takes about three weeks. That can be expidited but then the price goes up.

The lines you saw, i;m sure they are the ones called retrace lines but know the failure could be located on the red CRT board. Most likely the video amplifier is defective and not necessarily the CRT.
What is the model number of your TV?

I have red horizontal lines across my entire screen. The lines are noticable. However, I still have a clear picture.


I fixed my problem: it was the screen voltage.
To (try to) fix it: open up your tv, look for a thing like this:

As you can see it has 3 control-screws. one of these is for the screen (it has the text 'screen' near it), turn it slightly to the left to reduce the voltage, and the lines will probably disappear.
