Question about Sony KP-46WT510 46" Rear Projection HDTV
I have recently purchased this TV from a friend who is moving for a great deal and noticed that the image seems to cut off on the bottom and possibly other sides. I have tried resetting power, adjusting focus, and scrolling through the various zoom presets that exist. I enjoy watching the news and I can not read the scrolling marquee at the bottom please help. Also my friend informed me that he had the TV serviced a couple months prior to for what he said was "some sort of chip was fried or something" . Appears that about the bottom 1 1/2" is being cut off.
Please Help! Thanks!
The set may be overscanning. You will need a service tech to evaluate this for you. It is possible that there are some failed components that can cause this problelm. It is also possible that there are some adjustments that can be done.
The first step is to find out if there is a problem or not. It is not very good practice to over adjust a set to compensate for a fault condition. Then there will be bigger problems soon after.
An experienced TV tech who is familiar with your set can make some diagnostics to know where the fault is occuring.

most manufactures say not to have a still image on the screen for more than 15% of your viewing time. to fix this you will have to replace the optical assy. i did come across a sony projection where the burn in was actually on the screens themselves. the only thing you can try is to put an all white video pattern on your tv for at least 48 hrs.
