Heres how you get into the service menu. BUT be very careful write down anything that you change as this can screw your set up and if you write down everything you will be able to change it back if it affects your set. You may want to consider getting the service manual which will explain all the details on the convergence adjustments. If so let me know and I will post a link where you can get one along with free tech support to help you out with it.
Put the TV in Standby Mode.

  • Then press the following buttons on the remote:

    {DISPLAY} {5} {VOL+} {POWER}
    or
    {DISPLAY} {5} {POWER}
    or
    {DISPLAY} {5} {PICTURE} {POWER}
    or
    {DISPLAY} {5} {VOL+} {PICTURE} {POWER}

  • The TV will turn on with the Service Menu displayed.

  • Use numbers {1} and {4} to select the item to adjust.
  • Use numbers {3} and {6} to adjust the value of the data.
  • Press {MUTE} then {ENTER} to save new settings.
  • The words "WRITE" in red will show up in the upper right corner if saved.
  • Turn the TV off to exit the service menu.

    Sony projection tv model kp53v80


    Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

    The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

    yes most likely it shorted out your hori transistor and you may have a bad FBT.flyback transformer.

    The color keeps going out


    The repair tech used cheap parts or did not replace both convergence chips.


    Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

    Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

    • Screen looks 3D
    • Colors don't line up
    • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
    • Screen is bowed or warped.

    Here is a quick test....

    Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

    Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



    You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

    If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

    You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


    Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

    Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

    Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

    What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

    I got this 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
