Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Have a sony kf-50xbr800 rear projection tv. Has red line definition on many object but particulary on long or far shots. Tried the service menu recommendations d-gm tg v pos and it didn't correct the matter. All that does is move the vertical position of the screen up or down. Did the same on the h pos. it moved the screen left or right. My problem is there is a slight red or pinkish line on the left side of objects and again is prominent on a far shot, not so much on a close-up. Any clues

    What is the convergence setup. What abreviations should I be looking for?

    Sony qualified TV Tech can correct it by going in to service data adjustment mode. Novice will mess with convergence data if tried.

I would try the Convergence setup in the service menu ( IF they allow you to do that)

If the internal convergence isnt enough you might have to have the convergence amps replaced

    If you do any convergence adjustments , they are at your own risk.
    Write down any current settings so you can default back if you have to.

Do you have a menu when you press the menu botton. U might try calling a servicer and having him do a user reset in service mode, this will reset all parameters to factory specs.if this does not solve then I would assume the digital board has failed and or the analog to digital coverter Board.

Sony kf-50XBR800 tv turns itself on and off

I just purchased a replacement lamp off ebay and the TV is working fine now. Color looks better too (which I guess I should have expected). Search for "REPLACEMENT LAMP SONY XL-2100U" on eBay and look for seller "niosales". I paid $129 out the door. Their are other auctions for this lamp you can check out. Make sure you look at lamps that include the entire lamp housing, not just the bulb.
