NYGirl, the convergence circuit is failing, The IC`s will have to be replaced and all precision resistors will have to be checked, I don`t know who told you this was easy to do but I can assure you it is NOT an easy fix, If you have the service manual, access to a supply house that sells good quality IC`s ( I can give you that number if you think you can do this) a working knowledge of soldering and un-soldering and a good quality voltmeter you can remove the board and do this job, approximate repair time by a qualified tv tech is 2 hours, if not I strongly suggest you call a tv tech, questions? e-mail me back, BMW Rider

Picture Falling with arch

It is your convergence IC's going out, they cost about 40 $ for both, if you know someone that can solder, i would have them do it, once you see the new parts it is prity easy to find them on the board in your tv, repair shops usually charge 4 to 5 hundred

Blue and red arched lines on screen when background dark

Sounds like you are describing retrace lines that could indicate that your CRTs or something in the drive circuits are bad.. Check the resistors on the CRT sockets to see if they are in tolerance. If they are try turning the red and blue screen adjustments down just a little this should take the lines away. You will however be needing service in the not to far future. Turning the screens down should help if the resistors check out. Let me know if you need anything further.

After all the screws are removed, the panel pops on . They use plastic dowls inserted in rubber. The brightness may need to be turned down on the color that has little lines appearing. The brighness is on the picture tube board on each picture tube. Good Luck

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.
