Re: kp-41t65

Hello james28,

What you are seeing are called retrace lines. They occur when the blanking pulse does not completely turn off the electron gun of the CRTs. This could be due to insuffient pulse which could be the result of the verical signal lowering in amplitude or more likely the voltage on the anode of the CRTs has increased. You will need to take some voltage measurments to make sure which situation exists.

if you have a background in electronics you will need to following pieces of equipment.
1) High Voltage probe
2) Oscilloscope
3) DC voltmeter

In addition to these you will need a schematic. using the schematic as a guide measure the high voltage on the anodes of the CRTs it should be about 30KV. if the voltage is higher you then would check the voltage on the screen, control and focus grids of the CRTs if these are higher this indicates that the focus block or the voltage doubler might be at fault. These checks will put you in the ball park of finding the problem because if these major parts are not the cause you might be looking at a bad resistor or capacitor and you can troubleshoot these by looking at the dc levels and the signal across them .

If you need any other assistance please comment to the site and I'll be here to help.

Now if you do not have an electronics background I would suggest that you have a TV repair person take a look at your set .
I hope this helps,
Thank You,

I have a sony kp-41t65 tv acting like computer screen out of whac

Projection sets have two very common problems outlined below.

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. The TV can also shut down when the convergence starts to fail.

Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith, RCA and others.

You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from TV Repair Kits using the link at the end of this article.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
