Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television
Greetings. Shortly after I bought my kp53hs30 tv, I noticed that when viewing certain direct tv channels, the picture quality, (particularly red, or fleshtones) was pixillated, or would show up in small squares at times, and would look really grainey. I called the service center where I bought the tv, and they sent a tech out. Neither myself nor the tech knew at first that the problem had to do with the compression methods that Direct TV was using at the time. We thought there was something wrong with the tv. The tech made several adjustments. He was able to locate a bulletin describing the compression problem, and how to make adjustments to the tv to compensate for the problem. He fixed that problem, however, in the process, the picture is now curved in slightly at the top and bottom of the screen. I didn't notice this immediately, because at the time, I had always used full screen/480i. Now that I own several wide screen dvd's, and more and more channels now broadcast in widescreen, the curved picture is quite noticeable. It's not horrible, but I would like to correct the problem. Somewhere in the service menu there should be a setting that will adjust the top and bottom curve. What option would it be, and how do I access it? Other than this minor problem, it's been a great tv. THANKS!!!!!
On the sony we have to make the convergence alignments on all the modes, only a qualify tech can do that
