On left half of the screen [ KP51WS510 ], a redish shadow showing

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. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. 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, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

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

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Sony-kp51ws510 picture turns to a blue hue with flickering colors

hello there this is an easy fix unplug the tv and take the back of the set, once inside the set you will see 3 coloured bulbs and a big mirror in the back theses over time get dusty and dirty and if you smoke it can get really bad you simply just need to clean the bulbs and the mirror with computer screen wipes or some sort of window cleaner be sure not to get everything wet inside this should sort if for you nice and clear again!

Thanks For Using FixYa

Sony KDF-42WE655 (LCD 42 inch)

I have the exact same problem with my 42" LCD HDTV. When I called Sony "customer support" they told me NOTHING. However, I began researching this issue and found out that Sony knows all about this problem. It's a part called the "Optical Block" and THEY are supposed to reimburse you for the repair! The claim form is on the Sony Website. Here's the link: Look inside the yellow box on the right and click on: Additional service coverage information for your TV (scribble / line pattern on screen) Hope this helps you!!
