Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Red Shadow One minute our Sony KP - 51WS510, the next minute, when turned off and then back on, a red shadow appeared on every channel. Other TV's in the home are fine, it seems to be an issue with this TV. I'm not a technician, so please respond in laymen's terms. What seems to be the problem?

    What's your suggestion on replacing this confergence circuit? Is this something an owner can do, or does a professional need to tackle the job?

UNDER THE FRONT DOOR PRESS THE BOTTOM BUTTON "FLASH FOCUS" AND SEE IF IT FIXES IT. IF NOT AND YOU SEEN RED DOUBLE OF THE IMAGE, THEN THE SET PROBABLY NEEDS THE CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT REPAIRED.

I have a sony kp-51ws510 projection tv, i replaced the convergence ic's and a pico fuse and then reset the convergence. The tv looks good except for a green shadow on lettering, also on the convergence...


Did you check the two pico fuses on the G board? Usually at least one will blow when the original ICs failed. I am attaching a pic that shows the 2 pico fuses on the G board.

Problem #1) Convergence

Symptoms:

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.

Image on tv casts a red shadow.


TRY THE MAGIC FOCUS BUTTON. IF THIS DOES NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM YOU WILL NEED A SERVICER TO GO IN AND REPAIR CONNECTIONS OR REPLACE THE CONVERGENCE IC'S AND OR RESISTORS. AND READJUST CONVERGENCE IN THE SERVICE MODE.

Panasonic PT-51HX41 rear projection tv showing shadow/double images.


Unplug the TV from the ac wall outlet for about 4 minutes then plug it back in and turn it on. If it still has a double image then tell me if it's affecting the menu screen from the TV (not the cable menu). And is the double image in red and blue?
