Its done with the original remote--convergence in the customer menu should be looked at first---call up the crosses or the grid of lines, it has one or the other.

You first want to look to see if red out and then if it will move both up/down and left right where off.

If it will not move in some direction anywhere on the screen the convergence output chips the set uses are bad.

The set will or should have two hidden menus, one will bring up the advanced grid for convergence---input for that with the remote is Mute, 181 or 183----if you call up the wrong one shut set off and try the other number.

It is possible to converge the whole screen there, if memory serves me 7,8,9 change the color being adjusted DO NOT ADJUST GREEN FOR ANY REASON.

two buttons (different on different remotes will move the cursor around the grid (and the remote must have a button somewhere on it with "data" to save the adjustments.

Check in customer menu the convergence first---got movement?

When the tv is first turned on the picture is great. After about 5-10 minutes the picture looks like a 3 D movie when you're not wearing the proper glasses. Sometimes turning it off for 10 minutes and...


the 3d effect is caused by a mis alignment of the tree tubes you probably have a broken FRAME holding the tubes in place so that HEAT or VIBRATION can move them and the alingment is off dont forget you have one tube for RED one for GREEN and the other for BLUE if they are not aligned properly they can look like a 3d pcture without 3d glasses ha! sorry for the bad grammer...

Good luck!

I am having trouble adjusting my colors for my kp 53s25 there seems to be a lot of yellow how can i solve this?


This TV has had a long life. Your picture is looking more yellow these days because the Blue picture tube is wearing out. Not saying the Green and Red tub are much better, but Blue tube is a major player in the picture brightness and white balance (the color of white which the TV reproduces). The cost involved wouldn't be justified. You should enjoy the balance of the TVs life; when it's time comes... have the new TV delivered and ask them recycle this one. Best wishes.

My sony KP-65WS500 had a bad red picture tube. So


It was probably my post--SD TECH--you may want to tweek the red screen a little up or down--if it still acts up it is the picture tube--

The adjustment procedure is only meant to help and not cure the problem--try to get it as good as you can and live with it.

I have been involved with replacing those tubes and it is no picnic--you remove one--send it out for rebuild and put it back and do major adjustments--usual cost for rebuild is near 300 JUST FOR THE TUBE--real problem is that sooner or later the two other tubes will start to act up.

I composed those instructions to try to give people an option--to buy them some time--the picture tube is what some call a bulb--one in the same thing.

Lots of these sets had all three tubes changed when under warranty--what really happened is Sony put the wrong tubes in the sets to begin with.

My best advice is adjust it as best you can and when it goes replace the set.

Regards, SD TECH

My picture was prodominately green/red. I took the back of the TV off and looked into the bulbs. I could see a picture in the red and green, but in the blue it was barely there. Blue light was there, but...


1.) It means the Glycol in the blue tube is bad--usually contaminated by bacteria--each of the 3 picture tubes has a sealed area between the face of the tube and the lens above.

2.) If you see a picture in Green and RED but blue looks like a floodlight--the blue tube would have to be removed, drained, and the area with the Glycol washed out---new glycol added and the tube resealed and installed back into the set.

3.) This is a fairly major repair--the Glycol is very toxic---like antifreeze but much more concentrated---unless you have done it before I would not suggest it as a do it yourself job.

4.) The bacteria never affects the RED(it does not seem to like that color) and only sometimes the Green.

5.) It may not be worth repairing as most shops charge 200-300 or more for this kind of repair---not to mention that after it is done quite a lot of adjustment to the convergence will be needed from removing and reinstalling the tube.

6.) I know I am not giving you good news but you actually found your problem yourself! If you need any advice or help reply to this post and I will try to assist you.

I do this here for free so if this information helped you please take a minute to give me a vote here.

Red Color is not showing up.


THIS TV HAS KNOWN PROBLEMS WITH PICTURE TUBE FAILURES AND I WILL PREDICT THAT AT SOME TIME IN THE FUTURE EVEN IF YOU GET IT REPAIRED NOW, ONE OF THE REMAINING TUBES WILL START GIVING YOU PROBLEMS. YOU HAVE THREE TUBES IN THIS UNIT (RED,GREEN & BLUE) AND THE RED TUBE IS DEFECTIVE. SORRY FOR THE NEWS BUT JUST TRYING TO SAVE YOU THE ULTIMATE COST FOR REPAIRS, FOR A PICTURE TUBE REPLACEMENT AND SUBSEQUENT SET UP IS A MAJOR & COSTLY REPAIR.
HOPE THIS HELPS

Help with the green.


This is caused by failing convergence ic's. They take the image from the three picture tubes and align them so that one picture is displayed not three. They are the two large ic's on the biggest heat sink in the front of the tv, but changing them can be tricky b/c resistors feeding voltage to those chips may be bad to. It is a simple repair to a qualified technician but a major headache to a novice. It is economical to repair but I would leave it to the pro's. Hope this helped.
