Question about Sony KP-61HS10 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blurry screen KP61hs10

Having a simlar problem with mine. Picture is blurry at all times. Tried to flash-focus it to no avail.. Seems a little clearer on right side of screen, but not much. Some of the brighter white text has a faint reddish hue outline. Any ideas on this?? Should I try the grid thing in the Service mode? (not too familiar with those settings)

Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the reply. Went into the convergence settings and took a look there. I can move all the colours (although there is a white grid that is fixed and cannot be changed). Everything seems to be lined up pretty good. The red was a little off, but when adjusted, didn't seem to make that much of a difference. Perhaps there is something else that can be done?

    As an additional note, don't know if it means anything. But when I was in the convergence settings, the crosshair (litte square box I could move around the grid) was nice and crisp when it was green, but when I changed it to red or blue, it became rather blurry.

    Just in the last few months I have been having the same type of problem. However, on my set the red led starts flashing about 5 times every few seconds and if the picture is bright then it will clip off and then come back on. This will continue as long as the picture is bright. I have reduced the brightness just so it will stop, but this does not work all the time. There also seams to be a problem with the color as there is a red tent to the picture and it is not as sharp as it used to be. Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks Troylove11 for your reply and continued support in this matter.



    Well, I finally caved in and called a service tech. Right from the get-go he said it was the picture tube, but opened it up to take a look.. Upon inspection, when looking directly into the Red tube, the picture was way out of focus (I saw it for myself, not very good), again, he said the tube has gone and I need to replace it.. A $500 venture.. A little steep for me. After humming and hawing, he did some manual adjustments on the convergence settings, and wow, picture was clear again.. He said it is kind of a bypass procedure, and may not last very long..

    After a while, the tv will turn a purple colour, and then back to normal. I am worried this fix may not last long..



    Any input on solutions??

    On an additional note, I'm going to give you a fixya rating, because you did specify check convergence settings, and crt solving. and because I appreciate your input..



    Also, any additional input and/or solutions would be great..



    Thanks

Yes, Convergence settings should be tried first before any color adjustment or any fluid changes are done. Remember that there are 3 colors to notice. Red, Green, Blue. The Green is the only one that you can not move with an adjustment The Red and Blue is ligned up on green. Some cases it does matter how linear the Green color is across the board, just how close you get the blue and red on top of green is what matters.

    Well one way I repair sets like this is to open back of tv and put something over the CRT's. And do 1 colour at a time. Like for the blue, cover the red and green with something so you can see only a blue and then if blue is blurry there is a blue focus adjustment you can turn, it's above or below the blue screen control. Try not to change the screen control, it would interfere with your color settings. IF you cant stop it for being blurry then the CRT coolant fluid needs changing for those colors or all at one time.

Mitsubishi ws-55515 intermitent blurry picture


A bad connection somewhere--when it happens if picture is 3d look in menu for convergence and call up the grid of lines--if they are not perfect you have convergence issue which usually requires parts to be replaced.

In this set sometimes the chips will become flaky and convergence will jump in and out.

Blurry Picture


I know these models came out around 2001, and I'm afraid that the problem sounds like it is related to the bulb going bad.

This article outlines how many TVs from around the turn of the century have had similar problems to yours.

I know bulb replacement is an option. You may want to call around to TV repair shops and see what your options are. In the end, though, it may be time to start saving up for a new TV.

The picture is blurry. does anyone have a solution to this or has anyone had a similar problem.


I have a blurry screen and the top of it the picture is curved a bit. I was told to adjust the focus knob but I don't know where that is in the back of the TV. I took off the back and couldn't find it. I also tried to adjust the manual convergence and the red would not adjust only the blue would align. Any suggestions.
