I'm having a problem with the picture tube on my 51 inch sony rear projection TV, 3 years old. All of a sudden the display that reads "Video 1" or "Video 2" is slanted and so is the picture tube and it's not showing right, DVD's or Direct TV.....

It is very common to have the convergance circuit on these sets go out and cause display distortions. Are the colors separated or is just the picture slanted?

I have a sony 50 in rear projection. 9 years old

Sounds like the CRT tubes are going out which is fairly common on Sony. Inside the back of the TV there are 6 knobs - 2 for each is for focus - dont touch - the other for brightness...turn down the brightness just a hair untill the lines go away.

I have a old 61 inch tv the lens are out. Are these lens still available numbers on them are 646376-1 delta 24 passed 08121490 by U S Precision Lens inc Cinn. Oh.

The lens isnt the problem the tubes(CRTs) are what go bad. Whats your model number I may be able to help you out. The other site I work at has a huge inventory of used picture tubes that are all in good working order. Finding new tubes for anything older than 97 models is almost impossible. But post your model number and I should be able to help you out.
