Question about Sony KP-48S70 48" Rear Projection Television
Hi i have aq sony 53" rear projection tv model number kp-53xbr200 and it hase a triple picture in three colors and a purple buble in the top left corner what can i do to fix this problem
Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.
Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
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 contriple picture and purple bubble on big screen - 2c07611.pngips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, 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.
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.

You may have to degauss your CRTs. Somehow your CRTs have become magnetized and that is what is causing the purple bubble, now as far as the three color pictures, that might be a sign of a convergence problem. for that you may have to put your set into service mode and set the convergence. But first try to degauss the CRTs with a degaussing coil (they have specials on ebay). You will need your owners manual, the remote control, and some patience.
