Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Screen issues Our TV has red and green hues all over the screen. For instance, on the bottom of the screen when my kids watch the Disney Channel the Disney Ears on the botton left of the screen appear in red and green. Also, a person in the middle of the screen has a green hue around their head. All of the video channels do it, whether it is on video, dvd, or regular tv. I've called it in but they suggest I take it in. Unfortunately, it is 54" and I can't just drop it by a repair shop. Any suggestions as to what has happened and can we fix the problem ourselves? Thanks!

There is a green hue around the objects and people on the screen how do i fix this

Hope it is just cleaning take off the front screen. I think on that model remove the speaker covers, and a row of screws holding the bottom of the screen remove them. Watch the wires to the front buttons there may be a connector or two to undo. Carefully lift up and toward you WATCH THE WIRES. With a dry clean cloth wipe off the three CRT tops and the back mirror. Put back together and see.
If you still have a green hue.
Remove the screen again. With a flash light look down the CRT's if they a real cruddy down in the coolant yes there is liquid coolant in them. The red doesn't have this trouble but the blue and green can get contaminated. Also look for leaking of the coolant down on the boards. There are procedures to clean and repair leaks. Let me know.
There are a couple of focus procedures which I don't think is your issue.
Good luck Mark

Sony, tv comes on color fine, then turns red

I had the same problem with my TV, but the hue was blue. I was told that not only did I have to replace the picture tube that wasn't staying on, but I would have to replace them all because they would not mix properly. After much investigation, I found that there is an adjustment for a variable power supply to each tube that can brighten and lighten each tube. I adjusted the RED pot and my picture color issue was resolved! To access this adjustment you must remove the front panel on the TV. At the bottom corners there are two small screw covers that you must remove. Then un-screw the screws under the covers. Then pull the front panel off of the TV, (it hooks under the top near the screen so it will swing out from the bottom). Now remove the wooden panel in the center, (four screws). The pot adjustments are at the bottom of the TV. They are marked for Red, Blue, and Green. They are extremely sensitive, don't turn them much! If you over adjust you will get red, green, or blue lines on your screen. Adjust back down to remove these, (this is also the remedy for removing these lines that can appear over time). Good Luck and God Bless!

Blurred TV - double vision with red hue

I was searching online about what could be the problem with our TV and I came across your page. We have a 52" JVC Projection TV that now has a "blurred" screen. We can see the channels but it looks like it's has a shadow around the images. The screen in in a red hue with green blur.

If you have any suggestions on what caused this and what we can do to have this fixed, I would greatly appreciate your advice.

I am told my Hitachi 61SDX01B (UltraVision/Ultrascan) has "Green Geometry"

Sounds like a convergence promblem.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of a convergence problem.

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence or magic focus section.

Try to adjust the convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Its a fairly easy fix on the Hitachi sets.

You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.

The problem is called green geometry.There is nothing wrong w/the green pix tube.It is critical to get the green geometry

accurate because the red and blue convergence overlays on

the green.If you have more than an alignment issue,that will need

repair before adjustments are attempted.
