Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Hey all.... I have a question. I have an older(5yrs) Sony projection TV that might be showing it's age of late. I receive over the air broadcasts from my HD tuner and most of the time.......the picture only fills the center part of the tv. Most of the time I have black bars on ALL the way around the picture. This varies depending on the aspect ratio of the station broadcasting. The problem is now when I watch bluray's with the 1:85 ratio or whichever it is that fills my entire tv screen......the part where my hd tuner normally displays it's picture is slightly darker. I can only see this on very bright(white/bright blue) scenes. Is this what is known as burn in?? Do I need a certian set of lamps? I just don't know if it's burn in or the lamps. Again, this is only noticeable during brightly lit scenes and is otherwise not noticeable at all. Is there a fix for this? Excuse my ignorance. I know the tv is old and down on quality and will be replaced when the time is right but for now.....it is bugging the shit out of me!!!
Hi, Yes this is what you call a burn in , sence the part of the screen was blank out for so long the rest of the screen used slowly burt in, depending how bright your setting was place at, this is also the same affect when people keep there tv on the same chanel were there is only wrigting and no movement or video game or famous for that. It wouldn't be the bulb , they only project light,

Look at Optical Engine Faults before buying a lamp or bulb. Replacement bulb will not repair these problems.
