Sears came out and fixed ours for 340.00. I'm sorry I don't know the name of the part but there are two panels in the bottem of the tv, he replaced one.

You have a convergence problem, was it moved lately? Did you try the convergence setting in the customer menu?

Tv is yellow orange color what is problem

The model indicated does not have a "bulb" as it uses 3 picture tubes.

Examine the picture with color set at zero---stand back and look= if the screen has a mostly yellow (all or part of the screen) you have bad Glycol in the blue picture tube(if need explanation ask) and a look in the lens of the Blue tube will confirm this.

If able with back off and a small mirror look in each lens--red picture, green picture and blue picture.

If the Blue looks like a floodlight with little or no image--bad glycol in that tube.

The tv shows only red and blue it projects three

You need to replace Both STK ICs . They are Big Black ICs and will have PN# on them
example STK392-110
Mats has ICs 1-800-628-1118
Also check the Pico Fuse in Front and back Of ICs they look like resistors ,But will be Green or Yellow 5amp, 6amp, 7amp.

My TV has strange blue/red/yellow colors which appear on the screen and over almost the entire screen, what causes this and how can it be fixed?

Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence

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 Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

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

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant 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

I am having trouble adjusting my colors for my kp 53s25 there seems to be a lot of yellow how can i solve this?

This TV has had a long life. Your picture is looking more yellow these days because the Blue picture tube is wearing out. Not saying the Green and Red tub are much better, but Blue tube is a major player in the picture brightness and white balance (the color of white which the TV reproduces). The cost involved wouldn't be justified. You should enjoy the balance of the TVs life; when it's time comes... have the new TV delivered and ask them recycle this one. Best wishes.

3-D picture with color lines

Seems TV has dry/ cold solder joints (loos connections) in convergence out section.
Please check cold/ dry solder joints in convergence out section in TV, specially on pins of convergence out ICs. resolder these solder joints and all would be fine.

Blue Screen

You have a bad blue picture tube. If you replace it the red and green will be weak and probably go sooner than you think. Everytime I had to replace a tube in a sony projo tv i had to replace all 3 picture tubes at the same time. It's very expensive if you don't have any type of warranty coverage.

SONY KP53HS30 rear projection TV screen suddenly turned blue....

The blinking 5 times is an error code meaning that the white balance has a failure. And because you are experiencing a blueish screen then your problem lies in the circuit of the blue picture tube or possibly the blue tube itself is starting to go bad.
