Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Red, Red, Red

When I turn on/off it gives a bright red blur in the middle of the screen, when on and when the screen goes blank, like in between commercials, the screen is really red. While watching tv, you can sometimes see the background of the screen flash red, you can still see the shows, but you cant miss the color change. I also sometimes see really thin, long red lines going across the screen, a couple inches apart, over the whole screen.

I have a hitachi rptv model #43FWX20B and the picture has a red tint to it. Opened back up and red green and blue bulbs light up. red bulb stays bright while blue and green go dim to bright as tv plays....

Since you don't have any white lines with the red screen/picture I would say that the red bulb (CRT) is conducting too much. There is an adjustment control for that. The 'sceen' control is behind the speaker cover and service cover. Turn red screen control slightly to the left until you get a good black and white picture.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

Red band on flesh tones (50V500)

This is the first sign of a failing Red Picture Tube. Tubes will blur to the right when they get older. You can try to turn the screen control for the red gun down so the blur goes away. But eventually it will get worse.
