Sony kp61s65 dull picture

I purchased the unit in 1998. Over the past year the picutre has become dull.
Some people have warned me not to try and clean the guns and mirror myslef.
One "expert" told me that there was NO mirror in my particular model.
Any recommendations?

I think your convergence is out of align. I looked at the manual on the sony site. Setting it starts on page 14. If you don't have the manual you can find it here http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=KP61S65

Dull / dark screen and picture quality not sharp


The cooling fluid in the blue and perhaps the green picture tube assembly has become contaminated. Only solution is to remove the assembly and dump old fluid and clean and reinstall new fluid.

The color seems to be fading. NOt a clear picture.


Likely the picture tubes are getting weak from old age. Not much you can do about this.

Dull picture on my KP61s65


You can safely clean the mirror and lenses, it can greatly increase your picture if its dirty. If you unplug your tv you can safely remove the back and gain access to the lenses. All it takes is a philips screwdriver. After you remove the back, you can remove the light barrier between the upper and lower half to free up some room. Take a dry scratch-free cloth and wipe the dust from the lenses. If they're grimy, use a little lens cleaner (liquids used sparingly here, electronics don't like liquids, be careful) You can look up into the top and see if the mirror is dirty. A flashlight shined on it will illuminate the dust/dirt if its there. If you don't smoke you likely won't need to clean the mirror, but it may need it. Use windex or similar for tough grime.. I can usually reach up to get the whole mirror but I've heard of using a swiffer mop to reach the top. Removing the screen is difficult but possible if needed to get inside. Don't touch the back of the screen but lightly with a rag to get cobwebs, etc.

1998 Mitsubishi vs-60601 picture is dull and not as vibrant as it should be


the first thing I would do is to clean the lenses of the CRTs they may be coated with dust that will dim the picture. other than that the CRTs may be failing since the phospher of CRTs fade in brightness over time and the only solution is to replace all three CRTs. the CRTs I have discovered are no longer availible.
