Question about Sony KP-51WS520 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Check this thread; http://www.techlore.com/forum/thread/18289/Sony-kp51ws520-hdtv-error-codes/?replyTo=19691 The moderator of that forum Larry Dillon has a service manual available he would e-mail. He is also known as "Techman" on Fixya, so you may be able to get him on a live chat. The service manual will tell you exactly how to get into service mode. Hope this helps, if you have trouble getting in touch with Larry / Techman then please ask again :)

This is something that can be adjusted from the service menu, to an extent. It's been referred to as the "football affect" as in severe cases your visible screen starts to look football shaped. Here's instructions on how to adjust it. It will take some playing with these settings to get it just right. OPERATION METHOD FOR COARSE ADJUSTMENT (first do it in NTSC Full mode) 1. Enter the service mode and select PJE category. 2. Press the 1 or 4 button on the remote commander to select the item, and then use the joystick to change the data 3. Press button 6 to display the internal test signal (crosshatch) 4. Select GRN CENT (or any item you want to adjust). When BLU or RED is displayed, press the 3 button on the remote commander to change the adjustment color in the order of GRN BLU RED. 5. In GRN, BLU, or RED mode, move the joystick up or down to change the data in vertical direction, or left or right to change the data in a horizontal direction. 6. Before returning to the service mode, press the MUTING + ENTER buttons on the remote commander to write the data. (You must complete step 6 to write the data. If you omit step 6 the set data is returned to the data prior to the adjustment. Like fine adjustment, data can be copied from NTSC Full mode to other modes. And re-register FLASH FOCUS is required for it to work properly (not overwrite your changes). Items available in PJE category for coarse adjustment CENT SKEW SIZE LIN MSIZ (horizontally only) MLIN (horizontally only) PIN KEY (vertically only) For each item (and each color), there are two numbers shown on the screen, one for horizontal data and one for vertical data. Write down those numbers before making any changes, in case you want to change them back. Ok, the things you need to adjust the football effect are pin, and key. Also you may have to work with the bow settings. Pin is what's pushing the corners towards the center of the screem. Bow affects the over all bend of the screen, and key is a wave type adjustment.
