Sony KP-53HS30 Visual Problem

Ok heres the deal, yesterday I went to move the cables in the back of my TV. After making sure all of the connections were in place, I experienced my TV having visual problems.

The display seems to curve inward towards the center of the screen. Also, there is some ghosting where colors are off. I can still watch TV but it looks like I need 3D glasses now.

This is really unbelievable that a problem can occur just by checking wires. I hope I do not need to replace any part.

Is there anyone that knows how to get this fixed and if so can you please give step by step instructions because I know many people have the same problem! I checked many many sites for the last 2 days and I can't find someone with a complete solution. All I ever see is "go to the service menu"! What settings do we use after!? Anyways hopefully someone can help me and others instead of just a generic response.

Our Sony KP-53HS30 53" HD-Ready Rear Projection TV

According to the tech manual I looked at, it's a bad board - it just doesn't say which board. Sorry. Looks like it's making a trip to the shop.

Good luck.

if you are using component cables, make sure all are plugged in on both the back of the tv and the cable box. (component cables will have a red and white audio and red, blue, green video)

Sony KP-53HS30 Projection TV has pink and blue hue w/timer blink

Depending on your TV, you may have a Color Temperature (Color Temp) and/or Hue setting in the menu. Use these options to adjust the picture to the setting that best suits your viewing preference.
If your TV has a Color Temp setting, you will normally have the following options to select from:
  • Cool: Gives the picture a cooler, slightly bluish appearance.
  • Neutral: Gives the picture a neutral, more natural look and appearance.
  • Warm: Gives the picture a warmer, slightly reddish appearance.
If your TV has a Hue setting, follow the appropriate step below to make adjustments:
  1. Move the setting to the right to reduce the reddish appearance.
  2. Move the setting to the left to reduce the greenish appearance.

Pink image on Sony KP-53HS30 TV

Pink? If this is a retangular box that appears then I would suggest to look into the fact that you have turned on "TEXT" mode within the "CC" closed caption settings.

Connecting the laptop VGA output to my Sony-KP-53HS30

There are products such as VideoSecu PC to TV Presentation Converter. I haven't used them. I'm not sure you are going to get the resolution that you want. A DLP projector does a pretty good job. I know that is not what you are looking for.

Type "PC to TV Converter" in Google. They are about $40 to $60 bucks. Before you buy one, read the reviews.

Progressive scan

progressive scan? does your tv support 720p, or 1080p HD? (the p actually stands for progressive scan).
Another alternative to that is:

A bit more expensive, but i think it works on any tv.
