Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Words (movie descriptions etc.), just became fuzzy this week and the color is mostly ok when there is a close up on the screen, but watching something like a B-ball game is a little out of focus. I did the convergence, flash focus etc. and everything checked out. Anyone know of a fix? Also, how much do you think it would cost for an in home fix? The set is 5 years old...deciding if it is worth it or upgrade. It is about 80% of what it used to be. Thanks for your help.

Sounds like you need to clean the lenses and reflective area inside your set. It is easy and all you need is a screwdriver, windex and a paper towel. UNPLUG YOUR TV.   Take off your screen and screen protector and safely set them aside. 
Clean only the lenses ( glass part) and the reflective mirror type area on the top of the inside of your set.  It will look like new. You need to do this at least once a year.

Replace or resolder your convergance IC's. What is a common problem is over time the heat emitted by the chips weakens the solder joints on the circuit board. If your lucky just a resolder job is all it needs.

Shadowing words and figures


Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1 - Failure in the convergence circuits. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

0667c5f.pngSOLUTION

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.

TV set after fluid change. Notice how bright the colors are now. Everthing looks crisp and sharp again.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Adjust the focus on the red CRT slightly that should take care of the issue. The focus controls are located behind the lower front panel and the secondary access panel. Its a rectangle box about the size of a pack of cigarettes it has 6 dials on it 3 for the focus and 3 for the screens.

Mitsubishi 65809 65 in Blue color and center screen fuzziness


Projection TV's use a cooling fluid around each of the 3 CRT's that the light has to shine through. Over time, it will grow a bacteria in the fluid (just like sunshine on the ocean) and turn cloudy. The blue CRT is most subject to this. You need to have the fluid replaced, which can be a messy job better done by a pro, but many have done it themselves. If you are interested, I'll go into the details.
Might want to replace the convergence amps while your at it.
Hope Ya Fix It!

Sony Rear Projection TV Model # KP 53N74


I have had a similar issue with a Sony 52" circa 2001 tv. It was bad and then got better. The only problem now is that when I plug anything into the component 1-5 (but not 4) the screen is fuzzy. The DVD is plugged into 4 and it works fine. I tried plugging something else into that and it showed up in black and white. Very frustrating. Fancy TV if you only watch cable or a DVD. All other modes show up fuzzy. Sony recommended a tv repair place in St. Paul but they want around $400 just to look at it.

TV shuts off with high color images . Example: explosions,bright lights etc


Normally, the screen control being up a little to high, would cause this problem. If no one has worked on this unit when it started may be a sign of something else, for example, the 200 volt line may be running a little low. Check the brightness and contrast for starters and if that doesn't help, then, the screen control would be my next step. Hope this helps.
