You could do it but you would need the service manual to be able to do the tube and lens alighnment. You have to align the tube and lens before you can adjust convergence, and if you dont alighn properly you will kill your convergence ICs trying to compensate. If you would like me to post a link where you can get the manual let me know.

I have a Samsung rear projection tv, the picture is faded and the colors are not crisp or clean cannot watch it like this what do you think the problem is?


If this is a CRT-type rear-projection TV, the CRT coolant fluid is probably broken down. It's supposed to be clear, but after a long period of TV operation, it turns a yellow-brown color. If you unplug the TV and remove the back, you can look into the tops of the three picture tubes. They should be a clear red, green or blue color, with no yellow-brown tint.

CRT coolant can be changed, but you need to be very good at mechanical work to do it. Besides the safety considerations (picture tubes and other parts may carry a high voltage charge even when the set is unplugged), spilling broken-down coolant on electronics is usually disastrous, so you have to be very careful.

LCD panels used in projector applications may lose contrast if they are overheated (this can be caused by failure to keep the vents clean as recommended in the owner's manual).

You would have to provide your set's model number to get more specific information.

My tv looks like im in a fog what can i do to fix this? It appears to be heavy on the blue side also. 51MP392H/17


You need to change the glycol in the Blue CRT. To be honest... this is one of the most miserable jobs you could ever want to do. You need to pull out the blue CRT, remove the drain plug, empty the glycol, disassemble the mechanical seal, clean the scale off the CRT and C lens, reassemble the mechanical seal, refill with glycol, install the drain plug, install the CRT in the TV and then, re-converge the TV. Sound fun?.. it's not. The first time I did one of these the glycol leaked all over the place and destroyed the TV. Also, glycol is just nasty... slops up your hands and your tools and your work area. If you tackle this, good luck to you. You can get the glycol from MCM Electronics. I hope this was insightful, best wishes.

I have KP-51HW40, after being turned on for a few minutes the screen goes full organe/red. There is sound but no picture. Would anyone be able to let me know how to fix it. Thanks.


I believe you have a bad Red CRT. I would not go into replacing it because the last I have heard, Sony no longer has the CRT assembly to send. You must remove the CRT, Remove the Mechanical Lens and send the CRT back to Sony so they can refurbish it. We are talking a lot of money for a professional to come out and do it. I do not recommend going alone on this. I would check the prices of replacement sets. This repair could easily cost 800.00 or more and you have no guarentee that the other two CRT won't fail soon.
Hope this helps,

Blue screen when watching tv


hi,
i contacted toshiba and this what they have recommended, i am concerned whether it will be cost effective to repair.

''The Blue CRT is being driven at maximum brightness, it could be
components in the associated drive circuitry or more likely an internal
Short circuit of the Blue CRT itself.

I have not rectified the problem but would be interested in the cost of repair if any can give me an idea

Hope this helps others as well

regards

First of all,this is a major labor intensive repair on Philips TV's changing the blue CRT because the new CRT does not come with the coolant that is sealed between the lens and the tube.If you have never done this type of repair before you should not attempt. Changing the convergence board is one thing (you can solder in two STK392-120 IC's and repair the board instead)
but changing the CRT's can be a nightmare.If you are brave go to PARTSTORE.com and get the parts $600+ (I would order the service manual too...you will need it)

Check the info from this website on how to remove shorts from CRTs. This is not a DIY for sure.
The CRT you can remove it yourself, just be very careful when removing the high voltage wire that is connected from the HV trippler to the CRT anode. The CRT anode cable stays with the CRT.
Good Luck.

Check this site for info on how work on this CRTs. The process of repairing a leaky CRT is not difficult but time consuming and yes you will need to make adjustments after changing or removing the CRT.
You might have to change the circuit board assembly that is connected to the blue color CRT, or you can use rubbing alcohol and a soft hog hair brush to clean it.
Good Luck.

Sony KP-51WS500 fades into a blue screen


You have a bad Blue picture tube. with Sony, they suggest you replace all 3 tubes at the same time. If you have warranty coverage good, if not forget about it. Get yourself another TV.

BLUE SCREEN


I got this Sony KP-57WS500 57 in TV for FREE from a guy posting it on craigslist because he saw "BLUE SWIRL LINES" also knows as "Retrace Line" on the screen and he went to several repair people and got high repair costs so he was giving it away for free, but i found a guide that tells you how to adjust the tv to make the blue or green or red lines go away, aparantly the line show up because the voltage on the color ray gun tubes that get out of adjustment. Here is the Link to the REPAIR GUIDE. http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html
