Question about Sony KP-61XBR48 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

There is just three lines that show red, green and blue.

The picture started to flash, now there is only three thin lines that appear on the screen. One red, green and blue, but the sound is fine. Some times if you repower the unit, the screen will get bright (no color) then the color lines appear.

    Update, if you wait long enough the screen will flash. Then you see faint images, then the picture will appear. Then things are stable for a little bit, but the image will jitter. Almost like it's trying to re-sync. I hope the additional information helps narrow down the problem.

    Thanks.

It has been my experience with Sonys that those three colored lines indicate that the set is having trouble with the data communication lines. The hitch is that a model as complex as that one has as many as five seperate clock/data lines and if any one of them goes down the set will exhibit your symptom. It will take a professional to track down which line is causing the problem. I've seen audio output IC's as well as tuners cause the problem.

    That really doesn't narrow things down any. The clock and data info is carried on the 5 volt line and any interuption of the 5 volts or the data itself can cause your symptom. I'm sorry but it's gonna take a pro with meter and scope to track down whats going on. That kind of problem can be a real bear to isolate. If it helps any I'd normally charge aroung $300 to repair that kind of problem. That is not a do-it-yourselfers type of project.

White Raster with thin lines; Sound Ok.


White raster with retrace lines: No picture, Sound OK
(picture tube based telivisions.)

It is a common fault to occur in most of the CRT based telvisions, regardless of which brand it is. There will be sound OK, and a bright screen with thin white horizontal lines across; at about an inch space, all over the screen area. This fault may occur along with colur shades also, like blue screen with white retrace line, red screen with white retrace lines, green screen with white retrace lines. Let us take the first case. A white raster with white thin retrace line acorss the screen. These are call vertcial retrace lines technically. To make it mor understand, we have to go to some picture tube electrode details. There are three colour cathodes for a colour picture tube, Red, Blue and Green. Two girds are there called Focus and Screen. Focus grid is supplied with focus voltage which in turn determine the cocus of picture, and screen grid is supplied with screen volrage which determine the emission of the picture tube; in short. There is a final anode to all the picture tubes, which supplied with Extra High Tension voltage, can be located at the top side of the picture tube, to which the EHT voltage from LOT is connected with the help of rubber ****** and clip. Without these three voltages, EHT, Screen and Fcous, no raster will be produced. Therefore in our case, there is a raster, so, horizontal output section including Line Output Transformer [LOT] is functioning well, and as far as sound is there, tuner and video IF section are working well. In fact, all other section except, video output section is working properly.
There are three cathode points on the base card, marked as Bk, Rk and Gk. Check the voltages of these three cathodes. In our case, it will be very low or approximately equal to zero. When cathode voltages goes low, emission of the CRT increases, is the reason. There must be a voltage between 120 and 135VDC at these points. Find out the reason for this voltage drop is the next step. The video drive voltages in most TVs comes from LOT windings, after rectification and filtering. There will be one reisitor of low value, say one Ohms or so, will be connected series with this winding, in between diode and winding. Check the voltage at the cathode of this rectifier diode first. If found low replace the diode and the smoothin capcitor. The smoothing capacitor will be between 33 and 47MFD 250VDC rating. Replace both of them. If there is volatge, say 200VDC or so, check whether this voltage comes to the CRT base board or not, If not, check the conducting wire, serial resistors; if used for open. There is no chance of transistor shortage at this time as the raster we see is white. If raser we see have a specific colour predominent, that is green, blue or red, check the revalent video out transistors and replace it. It is best to replace all the three video output transisors at the same time with same batch and number.

Tv out of foucs


These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then: Convergence The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’ images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen. Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the signal format. Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue Centering. When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options: Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen (this is normal). Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the screen, if necessary. Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture. Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture. Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to converge the picture.

You have a completely different problem. The screen voltage for the blue picture tube is slightly too high on your set. This will put fine lines in the background of the picture, called retrace lines. This is very common and easy to correct. Remove the front speaker cover and the access panel behind it. Look inside and you will see a black box with six controls, each control having a little white glue on it. This is the Focus/Screen block. Three controls are labeled Focus and three are labeled Screen. The screen control in the center is for green but I am not sure if the screen control on the left or right is for blue for your model. With the TV on, set it to VIDEO 1 but do not connect anything to the VIDEO 1 jacks. This will produce a pure dark picture, showing any faint lines in the background. Choose one of the screen controls and increase (turn clockwise) it slightly. If the blue lines do not get brighter it means you are turning the red screen control, so put it back where it was and choose the other screen control. When you find the blue screen control, decrease (turn counter-clockwise) it until just when the blue lines are gone. If you want you can check that the red and green screen controls are set to just below the point where their faint lines are visible. When done, replace the panels and your picture will be back to perfect.

MikeNJ1964 was exactly right! I have a Sony KP-65WV600 that had horizontal green lines that showed when the picture was darker. I had to remove 3 screws on the right and left side of the tv holding in the speakers...carefully pop out the middle panel from the clips holding it in....remove 4 screws from the cardboard in the middle and remove the cardboard. I then saw the six screws. The adjustment screws were the three below. I turned the middle screw until the lines dissapeared. I tried the left screw and blue lines appeared which I then adjusted away.
THANKS a bunch. SAVED me money!!!

Lines on the screen


Are they thin, white lines running east to west? If so, they are called retrace lines and indicate that the screen settings for the picture tubes is set too high or there may be a mal-function of the CRT driver circuitry. Try adjusting the screen controls which are located behind the front grill of the TV behind an access panel. Once you remove the grill and access panel, you'll see a small control assembly the has two sets of controls. Three for adjusting the red, green, and blue focus, the other, the red, blue, and green screen controls. To adjust correctly, put the TV on an unused input(dark, blank picture) and adjust until there are no visable retrace lines or color in the image.
