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

1 Answer

Sony kp53hs30 My TV gor water in the back of it and it distorted the picture. I had a repairman look at it and he told me to replace the D board so I did, But the picture is still curved and 3D looking. It is not as bad as it was before, but it is still messed up. Is this something that can be fixed by having it focused or is it something else? It doesnt look like there are any more parts with water damage. It was just a little bit of water. Thanks

The bulbs are all working. The picture has shrunk into a saddle shape. The focus is off.

Symptom shows tv got convergence output chips failure problem, this tv has two big convergence output ICs/ chips on D board that will be replaced to get back correct picture.

Distorted picture on RCA LCD TV

I have the same tv. Had repair man come to my home in late april. Said it is the power convergence board. $225 for parts and labor I was told. Bad thing is part was supposed to arrive mid-may,then mid-june and now mid-july. He say's part is on back order. I'm actually going to contact RCA soon to find out if this is true. This seems to be a common problem with this particular T.V
