Question about Sony KP-53S65 53" Rear Projection Television
I have performed the lens cleaning with surgical cotton and alcohol free cleaning fluid. I also used the same products on the mirror. The picture is amazingly brighter now! Like someone put a rejuvenator on the set. This is a 1998 model. Can the image be improved further? The user convergence still shows some overshoot of color on the cross hatch no matter what I do. The service mode instructions,I currently have appear incomplete or I am just not knowledgeable enough to understand what it is I am looking for in the Covergence adjustment nor how its done nor how are you sure its done correctly? I may ultimately call in a ISF Tech to align it and my new Pioneer Pro-1140HD. Though in the meantime. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Remove the lenses, drain,clean and refill the crt's with new fluid, adj focus and screens etc.

Ginovino, Did you ever get the convergence fixed? I was just given one of these and am having the same type of problem. Thanks.

I just did the convergence myself using this site as a guide http://www.bus.ucf.edu/cwhite/theater/ServiceMode.htm . I have other problems with the set but the convergence mode is easy to access and adjust. Good luck.

With a set that old, it is unlikely you'll get the convergence that close to perfect anyway. You may even make it worse if you go too far in your adjustments. How you could manage to even watch it after looking at a HD set is beyond me anyhow. I would sell it "as is" and stick with HDTV.

take the back off oh unplug it first and then read the label that says no user serviceable parts inside its kinda like the tag on pillows the three delta lenses can be cleaned with a soft cloth dampened with windex they are an optical grade of plastic like the screen so all those caveats apply if you are really brave you can take the lense assemblies off and clean (gently the concave) portion of the top of the crts they are filled with coolant and should be treated with care if you are really brave use windex on the plate glass mirror if you are nice to your tv it will look real good when you get done it will look even better if you know how to refocus the focus block and the screen controls all the home theater dvds wont make up for zen and the art of projo maintenance

SOURCE: Picture cut off
No adjustment needed on these LCD projection. Your problem is in your setup menu. Your default is now is set ZOOM. That is why the bottom of the picture is cutting off. Go to Menu, setup and screen size or something close to that.

most likely cause is one of the 3.5 amp picos have blown when the old Ics failed. You can get replacement picos at the following link, and they also have the service manual which will explain how to adjust the colors through the service manual. Here is the link.
