Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television
I have green arcs from the bottom lower left to lower right progressively upwards a few inches apart with the lowest arc being the brightest. I am guessing "convergence" ? problem but I know nothing. I am handy and IF I can do the adjustment please tell me how. If it is a component replacement, I will call a service guy. Sony doesn't have anything on their site. The TV is about 3 years old from Good Guys so, so much for those bankrupt people. Thanks in advance. Fred Adler San Diego
These are problems with retrace lines. What you should take a look at are the settings for the convergence / retrace lines Basically you need to open the TV and the job is about 15 minutes to solve the issue with arched lines, either blue, greed, or red. There is a great how-to guide here: http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html

There is a way to get rid of the lines, you need to enter a code from your remote to access a hidden menu. From there you can adjust the lasers in the tv(green lines)I beleive it is very sensitive though, if done wrong can reck the tv. Not sure of the code or directions on how to exactly adjust the lasers, actually looking for them my self. Hope i was some help though!
