Question about Sony KP-53V80 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Kp53v80 Hello, I have a KP53V80 and I recently had some electric problems with my house. One of the neutrals was bad on my fuse box and must have caused a surge. When I powered up my TV everything came on and worked like it has for 8 years now. Then wham, a huge pop came from the rear of the TV area and now the only thing that happens when I power up the TV is the red light flashes once and then stays on solid and no sound or picture. I've removed the back panel of the TV and carefully dusted a little back there and noticed that the 125v cylindric type fuse is in tact. Is there any hope for my TV....?

Yes most likely it shorted out your hori transistor and you may have a bad FBT.flyback transformer.

Plesae answer my question or just say you don't know. I don't want to see simular problems other people have. I just want to know where the control is to adjust the picture on a 52" Sony KP53V80.

If you've its user manual, refer it. It is difficult and so much to type in here all the details, and is not possible too. If you haven't the user manual, try this site.
You can download the user manual for free. Electro help

Sony projection tv model kp53v80

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

Sony kp53v80 Red convergence stuck vertically

Did you replace the convergence ICs? The 4.7 ohm 1/2wwatt resistors and the pico fuses? Let me know and I will assist you, as often sonys will blow the 3.5 pico and a few of the 4.7 ohm 1/2watt resistors when the Ics fail.

Partial Power Outage

This could be very dangerous.

I would first call your electric company and ask if they have any problems with their lines, etc. We recently had this problem at our home and it was in their circuits.

My mother in law had a similar problem and we caught it in time. In her house, several outlets showed extremely low voltage and the others showed extremely high voltage.

It turned out to be a bad neutral connection on the line going from the pole to the house. The electric company fixed it at no charge.

Also, you or someone you know should measure the voltages coming out of your outlets, or call an electrician right away.

You may have a loose circuit breaker or a bad connection somewhere your electrical panel or elsewhere in your neutral line.

This can lead to destruction of your appliances or even a fire, so please don't delay.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
