Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television

Brown rectangle in center of screen

When I watch a movie with a white background, I see a brown rectangle in the center of the screen. It looks like the same screen size of the regular cable video. I have already cleaned the inside and I don't know what this can be. Does anyone know what this is or how I can get rid of it? Thanks

Afraid what has happened is a perminate problem, when a set runs in this small mode ( 4X5 ) mode for extended periods of time it will burn the CRT's. Only way to fix this is to replace the CRT's for about $350.00 each

Hitachi RP CRT Gone Red On All Inputs!!!


I want you to do a simple visual check of something that will tell me what the problem may be.

Go to a channel that is in black and white--old movie and tell me what color the screen/picture is.

You can also turn the COLOR in the customer menu all the way off and look that way.

What we are trying to see here is if TRACKING is set correctly or has changed. If the screen is somewhat to medium reddish it may be an adjustment outside of the customer menu.

Let me know what you find--I have seen several of these where the black and white picture was somewhat red--the idea is it should be as close to black and white as possible--if red is the predominant background color the picture will look reddish.

If this has helped and you confirm the red instead of black and white picture--I can tell you a easy way to adjust this.

If this information told you something you did not know and helps you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Blue out of focus; casting blue "glow"


Try changing the coolant in the blue tube. Contaminated coolant will give a halo look to the affected tube and you will experience difficulty focusing that color.Phillips/magnavox's blue is the tube most often affected with the contaminated coolant issues.

Light Blue Circle in Center of the Screen


Hello BruceD,

What you may have is a magnetism problem. I would suggest that you try deguassing the CRTs first before looking into replacing the CRTs. You can have a TV technician perform this for about $50.00 - $60.00.

Thank you,

62' Mitsubishi WD-62525 little black and white squares instead of picture but I have sound


Mitsubishi list this problem and has a solution of replacing several small surface mounted caps and diodes. we have tried this repair 5 times and only successfully done it once. so replacing what is called the formatter board part # 930B924002 for around $ 350.00 usually repairs this type of failure, However changing this board is a time consuming thing and takes a lot of Patience. It is buried deep in the set and several other board have to be removed just to get to it

Blue discoloration


I have replaced alot of these light engines for this problem. Yesterday I received a letter from Sony saying they are going to give an additional warranty to have the optics replaced. I just checked, your model is one of them and Sony is replacing the optic block under an extended warranty, regardless of the purchase date, until the end of October 2008. Contact Sony for an Authorized Service Center in your area or go to this site to read about it: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/news-item.pl?news_id=185&mdl=KDSR60XBR1 Have this repair done on your set and it should save you about $1300.00 to $1500.00 on the repair. Hope this helps.
