Question about Sony KP-61HS10 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

1080i picture is vertically stretched

I had a board or two replaced on my sony and now the 1080i (thru input 5 via component cable) is vertically stretched instead of having black bands above and below it. So, instead of a 16:9 ratio I have a 4:3 ratio. Everyone (repair shop, sony, cable company) is passing the buck. Before repair the 1080i was compressed now it isn't. Any solutions and does anyone have service manual or codes?

Have isolated problem to vhf/uhf connection point. white lines flash in pic. w/a popping sound & if they stay for very long there is a buzzing as in over white or over modulation. problem shows when...

Problem seems with main tuner in this tv as other AV inputs working fine so please replace main tuner (TU2) to solve this issue.
There are two tuners mounted on A board TU1 and TU2, please replace TU2 and part number would be written on tuner itself.
TV is approx 10 years old so I would recommend that do not spend lots of money on it.

The picture seems to have gotten bigger and now the tops of their heads are cut off

When this happens you can try the wide/picture format/view mode button on your television's remote control first. If your remote does not have one or if this does not correct the problem check the resolution on the cable box next. If your television displays 720p make sure the cable box is set for 720p, or 1080i if the television supports that resolution. First you have to make sure your tv in on the right input not the tv tuner input. Then use the hdzoom# button on the cable remote. If you have a satellite remote it might say format or aspect or you might have to go into the cable box/satellite receiver menu and choose 1080i crop or 1080i stretch to get the right picture size.

Mitsubishi 55 in. 1080 series

If I remember correctly, this TV has a couple of constraints that will cramp your style:

1. It supports 480i, 480p and 1080i. NO 720P
2. It has component video inputs, but NO HDMI. (as you stated)

There is no easy solution here, because I've never found an upconverting DVD player that would upconvert anything past 480p using the analog component outputs...


Perhaps you can find an Upconverting BLU-RAY disk player that may allow older DVDs to be upconverted to 1080i via the component outputs.

MOST Blu-Ray players allow 1080i output via the analog connections on Blu-Ray discs, so perhaps there is your solution.

Using the DTV input on the back via component cables to an HD source you then need to make sure the input assignment menu is adjusted to Y/Pb/Pr

No Picture from Component Input #1 or #2 but do have audio via Surrond Sound

Simplest thing would be that your component cables are not HU'd correctly. Having them reversed would do this.

Picture stretch top/bottom for 1080i HD input

First thing to look at would be the source, make sure that this source whatever it may be is set to display a 16X9 format. Your set may simply be showing what it see's and it may be seeing the 4X5 format and giving you a problem

Apple tv

The component 1 and component 2 inputs only go to 480i and 480p. The Apple TV must be plugged into the DTV input which will accept a 1080i signal.
