Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Three separate images about 4-5 inch apart on my TV

I turned my KP-51WS500 on and all of sudden I see three separate image. Seems the picture is out of sync with green shadow being more prominent. Could it be the problem with CRT tubes again. 2 years ago, I had to replace Red and Green CRT tubes but then the symptoms were quite different; the colors will start normally but would gradually turn green and after about 45 secs it would turn off. This time, I see three saparate images about 4-5 inch apart.
Would could be the problem this time? and how much would it cost me to repair. Can someone guide me

Samsung plasma TV model #pn42b400p3dxza problem with no image. The TV has sound but no image. I've tried using other components on the TV like RCA jacks with a separate TV digital tuner. Thank you

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
Check whether Va & Vs voltage come to the display panel, from the main power supply regulator board. If not, the SMPS board [power supply regulator board] is faulty.

Veon tv manual

The eject button on the remote appears as an upward-pointing arrow with an underline - see below image. The eject button on the TV has a similar symbol.


However, I suspect that in your case, you might not be having a Remote.

This link says that your TV doesn't come with a Remote and DVD cannot be ejected without the remote :

Samsung TV Displaying Dual Images. It appears as 2 of the same images offset from each other. There are also some lines in the images. Talked to samsung and they wanted to send a tech but I simply can't...

Overlapping video signals are generally adjustments made when turning various pots on the rear circuit board. You may need the service manual to follow the directions on how to reset and stabilize the picture. If you cannot be your own technician; you have no choice or other options.
