Question about Sony KP-53XBR45 53" Rear Projection Television
I bought this tv from a friend of a friend, just 1 week ago. It worked great when I first got it, so I thought I got a great deal!
Yeah, it's a little older, but I don't care about having the latest technology, I just want a tv that I can see from the other side of the room.
This morning when I turned it on, the screen started displaying everything in red, as if the red gun is the only one working. I'm hearing that everything for this tv is NLA, and this just makes the red really stand out now! I pulled the back panel, and all three guns are working, I held a peice of thick paper over the guns, one at a time, just to block the light beam. The Green and Blue guns are working, but I don't know how to adjust the individual rgb color level strength, or if the strength can even be adjusted. To make matters worse, I don't have a factory remote.
I don't know nothing about these older rear-projection tv's, but I am a competent computer builder, and I am skilled with electrical/circuit-board repairs.
If someone can point me in the right direction, for manuals, hardware, or just simple advice on this issue...
I would greatly appreciate it!
Through the front of the tv behind the speaker grill and behind the panel in front if the CRTs there will be a square object with 6 knobs you can turn. grab a flashlight and twist the RED SCREEN control to the left until the red is less prodominate. make sure you still have some red because then the picture will look purple. that adjsutment is called G2 or SCREEN control adjustment. try that be careful though because tooo far one way and the picture might start to blank.
make sure that you check all connections coming from your video sources also.
