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.

    Do you have a colored silhouette around the letters?
    for example a red green or blue outline around the images

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.

I have a 2 1/2 year old Sharp Aquos LCD 32" television that I was watching last week and the colors on the left side of the screen became distorted in columns, and then the whole side of the screen...


Hi, Try moving the TV around so that the bars disappear. It could be you have it too close to something thats affecting the screen. You might even move it to a different room. Good luck.

This can be a defective CCD which senses the images.
Random moving lines and color patches are the symptoms.
