Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television
I have been given a Sony KP-51WS500. I was told it had the green/red lines on occasion's which has previously been determined as a circuit board problem if I'm not mistaken. I haven't seen them since I have had it (about 2 days). To me the color seems a bit faded. I've played with the settings, but it doesn't seem to help much.
I was wondering if I could purchase replacement parts somewhere. I tried looking on the Sony website, but they didn't have anything for internal replacement parts. Im not even sure if I am heading in the right direction. I figured a little general maintenance wouldn't hurt it. What are you thoughts, suggestions?
If you have tuned it from the menu to its premium then that is it for the end user. Beyond that it is the high tech end. replacing the sustain board may not be the answer as many have previously found out. This is not board swap jockey type maintenance or fix. The sustain board controls the color engine and when it is changed or repaired requires a total retune from the inside of the set. This is High tension electriicity and if you do not have experience or understand electronix then keep away from this area. Use a professional, The expense is worth it as many who have swapped boards for cheap fix have got just that and a bigger outlay than they were expecting from getting into water that is beyond their depth.
The cost of parts for this unit is about $300 but it is not just part replacemnent, the unit requires a special expertise and set of tools that genertate test pattern and hatch module to correctly align the color engine.

I had a pioneer, I tookj the back off and cleaned the mirror and the top of the color lens seemed to brighten the colorfor me.
