Redness in PIcture

I have had my TV for 4yrs and all of a sudden the screen has turned to a red blurr and there is a red vertical line on the left side of the screen. The redness has created red ghost images. If I turn the TV off for awhile it returns to normal, but only last about 5 mins and then it turns red again. What should I do?

    Ditto, same issue. Can anyone give suggestions as to cost to fix this?

    Yes I have the same problem it started last night. Today I tried the convergence menu, could not align the Red + sign to become all white. I even tried reset to Factory default and that didn't work.

I'm very good with electronics and could do the soldering myself but i was wondering, do you have the instructions for the dis-assembly and where on the board the chips are? Also i was told by a local repair guy that i would need some kind of alignment codes. Does anyone know anything about that?

This is a failure for the convergence amps.. Replace both STK392-110 amps using STK392-150's instead for greater reliability and then re-converge..
If you're taking this to a shop to have it done it's not that expensive of a repair - but make sure you get your estimate in writing and make sure you relate to the tech that you want the 150's instead of the 110's...
Have a great day!

Redness in picture

The Convergence amps in this TV set will need to be replaced. This is a typical repair that has to be repaired in almost every tube type projection TV set ever made. Not really a hard job, but a knowledge of printed circuit boards and soldering will be needed and if you do not have the soldering and unsoldering skills, leave the repair to a pro. A repair such as this will run anywhere from 225 up yp 400 bucks. Good Luck and let us know how this repair worked out for you.

Sony rear projection screen is red then tv shuts off

Can be 1 of 2 things. 1st the red tube just needs the voltage to it turned down. In the front of TV (you have to remove the lower front half of TV to access it) is a plastic square with 6 knobs. The from left to right top knobs control focus for blue,green red. The bottom knobs control voltage to each tube in same order (so lower right knob for red) turn SLOWLY to left to reduce voltage until excessive red and lines go away. If you over turn left or right set will turn off. If that does not fix it or if lines reappear then option 2 is that red picture tube is failing outright and needs replacement.

Sony KP-51HW40

I had the same problem with mine 2 years ago (TV was 1.5 years old at that time) I had extended warranty on TV and it was fixed by Sony at no cost to me. Now yesterday I have another problem with it. All of a sudden screen went BLUE. No Sound either. It could be the CRT (That's what I read here) Out of luck this time. Will call local Repair shop (70 miles away) and see how much it will cost to fix it. Good luck.
