Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Red screen I have had this model for one year now and worked just fine. about 3 months ago I noticed red horizontal lines that became more and more apparent. Now the screen will turn completely red after 1 minute. When I shut it off, for a few minutes, it comes back normal and within a minute again (or shorter) goes back to red. If the TV has been off for a few hours, we get about 10 minutes of normal viewing before it turns completely red again. I am not sure what to do now.

    Actually the answer was already posted and I did not realize it. I opened the front like instructed and played with the 3 knobs at the front bottom of the tv to adjust the convergence. I was able to fix the problem in less than 15 minutes. I started having the problem because my kids kept running into the tv with their bicycles. The tv actually gives me a clearer picture than I had in years now. Thanks anyway

Led tv showing horizontal red lines


Horizontal lines syptom is always related to its LED back-light section. Check and repair it first; if you can. Contact any service technician. In most cases, this fault might be of its display panel itself, because, most models of the Samsung TVs, the T'Con and LED drive system circuit are built in part of the display panel. If so; the repair will be almost impossible. Replacing the display panel will be the only remedy. As you know, it will be best to buy a new Tv; instead of replacing the Display Panel of any LCD TVs; as the cost of the panel + repair charge will come around 80% price of a new Tv. Check and confirm the fault is with its Display Panel. If yes; get rid of it. The decision is yours.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

All screen is red


IF THE SCREEN IS ALL RED WITH VIDEO VISIBLE AND RETRACE LINES. ADJUST SCREEN CONTROL IN THE FRONT FOR THE RED TUBE ONLY. TURN CONTROL COUNTER CLOCKWISE. IF THAT DOESNT DO IT THE TUBE CAN BE REJUVINATED.
