The blinking 5 times is an error code meaning that the white balance has a failure. And because you are experiencing a blueish screen then your problem lies in the circuit of the blue picture tube or possibly the blue tube itself is starting to go bad.

Hello - I love my Sony and do not want to have to get rid of it; the problem that is happening is, my Sony KP53hs30 has horizontal lines flickering through the picture. Any suggestions?? Thank you...


Hello this is an indication of a CRT in the set about to go bad, depending on the color of the screen you can tell which one. Also behind the speaker is a sreen and focus block, these can go bad over time or get out of alignment especially when the set has been moved. You can try to turn the control down or again depending what color the line are, will let you know which knob to turn.

I have a 2001 sony 53' rear projection tv model #KP-53HS30. It seems has a wavy section on the upper left hand corner and lower right hand corner of the screen. All the bulbs are working fine but seems...


Try this. The follow was found on tv-forums dot com by Zyntar...
There is a secret service menu to converge the Sony KP53HS30.
Caution: Be careful, there are many settings that can be tampered with. Some may be hard to undo.
Procedure: (use the remote control for these steps unless noted)
1. Turn TV off with System Off (under flap on remote)
2. Press: Display, 5, Volume +, then Power. If successful, service text will appear on the screen.
3. Use 2 & 5 to select the PJE Category.
4. Press 9 to get to fine convergence adjusting.
5. Press 6 several times to get the convergence screen of choice. I like the grid.
6. Use the remote's arrow keys (joystick), move the brackets around until you have found the area to adjust. Press the center of the joystick to change the bracket from white to a color. Use the joystick to adjust the color. Press 3 to change color to adjust. When done, press center of joystick again.
Note: Try to keep the grid even and squared up.
7. Repeat steps 5 and/or 6 for all parts of the screen that need it.
8. Once done, you need to save your settings. Press: Mute, Enter. Then on the TV, press "Flash Focus"
9. Turn off power.
TV is ready to use.

Sony tv KP-61HS10 lenses wont align


This is common in those sets. One of your convergence IC's has stopped working and needs to be replaced. The convergence IC should be replaced and the convergence circuits realigned by someone with experience in Sony projection sets.

Yellow brush marking on Screen


Your problem is with the blue color,maybe some dirt is sitting on the face of the blue crt and is being projected bigger to the screen,you should try cleaning the face of all 3 tubes,if you familiar with tv service this should help,be careful when removing the back and make sure the set is unplug when you do the cleaning.Let us know how it goes.
