First you should try to use the auto convergance function to get the light guns in the right spot, this will be in the video or setup menu, If that does not do the trick your looking at 500-700 to repair so I cant say I would fix it. Good Luck

Colors are separated, double vision in lower right corner.


Oh, yea - another misaligned projection TV. All rear projection TV's seem to eventually get this disease.
Fix: perform a "convergence," which will converge all 3 color projectors to the same point.

I have a kp-51ws500, that comes on the colors get wierd then it shuts off, any ideas? Lamp?


Not Lamp, it is problem of convergence output ICs failure. KP-51WS500 is rear projection tv that has 3 color tubes to make picture, this tv does not have Lamp as light source in DLP tv.
Replace convergence output ICs to fix the issue. Local tv repair shop will help you if you have no experience in electronics stuff fix.
Thanks.

HITACHI ULTRAVISON REAR PROJECTION TV HAS 3 OF EVERYTHING. IS IT WORTH FIXING?


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. 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 Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, 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.

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

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

Snoy kp-53hs 30 projection tv


I have a Philips Rear Projected TV and the time mine did something similar it ended up costing me $400 NZD to get the main board replaced. Sorry samsunwest, you may have to call in a service agent to take a look. It would be worth your while checking out the warranty for your Sony before you call though as it could possibly be under warranty.

The dark colos have a lil' green on them...why?


How old is this set? Sounds like a CRT issue, might be able to adjust the G2 control (SCREEN), you will have to pull the bottom pannel off the front and there should be another little 1/4" thick board that comes off with a few screws and then a 6 knob control, turn your color all the way off in the menu and adjust your screen controlls up till you get some overcolor with lines in it and then back down just before the lines (MAKE SURE YOU DEFAULT ALL YOUR USER MENUS) check that you have a black and white picture after adjusting all 3 screen controls like before with the menu color off. If you have a bad CRT it will go again, the CRT may no longer be available, if the set is not too old i.e. 5-8 years old it may be a defect with multiple CRTs.

Sony KP 53S65 53" rear projection TV contrast issue


While the root of the problem is likely the picture tubes aging, I'm sure it would benefit from a cleaning and adjusting. After the dust is cleaned from the lenses, the screen controls could likely be lowered to get the blacks you desire. An experienced tech would be able to do this for you.
