Sony 51 inch Projection TV.

Hi Pravin,

How are you?

Someone I know is giving away this Sony rear projection TV, 51 inches in the Cinema format (wide screen). It is from 2002. I don't have the model#.

When the Tv is turned on the Green, Red and Blue don't converge (they don't line up).

He told me the TV has Automatic convergence (It can't be done manually), when he tries the Auto allignment it doesn't fix the problem.

He said fixing it would cost $500.

Is this something I can fix myself with your help? I am fairly handy.

What do you think the problem is?

Is it a circuit that has to be replaced or just a matter of something coming loose inside?

It is a beautiful tv otherwise.

Please let me know as soon as possible please. frau13@Juno.com

Thank you.

Dear AJ,

To be very Honest, i am not well conversant with Rear Projection TVs.

I suggest that you try with someone else.
Again from my personal point of view, i am of the feeling that itcan be fixed, and pretty easily. There must be a "Service Mode" which can be accessed by the remove, and then the Convergence Settings / Adjustments can be corrected.

But, I shall make additional enquiries and and let you know.

Cheers

Pravin

51 inch hitatichi rear projection television was watching a program and then it went off and will not turn back on...no picture...sound comes through the theatre


You have bad amplifiers otherwise known as IC's which serves the purpose to give you a true grid for your picture which people know as convergence. If these Ic's are completely gone you will need to replace them before your television will turn back on.
Another problem that you may have is the glass fuse which is located next to the power supply is blown and needs to be replaced.

These are the dimensions of the TV itself (including the bottom piece)
The height of the TV is 37.2 inches tall
the width is 49.6 inches wide
the depth is 17.4 inches deep.

I have a sony 50 in rear projection. 9 years old


Sounds like the CRT tubes are going out which is fairly common on Sony. Inside the back of the TV there are 6 knobs - 2 for each color...one is for focus - dont touch - the other for brightness...turn down the brightness just a hair untill the lines go away.

On the Sony FX43 100Hz 43-inch rear projection TV, three flashes indicates an Over Voltage Protection problem, occurring in one of the power supply circuits T603 or R672.

The fix will most likely cost more than the set is worth second-hand, I'm afraid.
