Question about Sony KP-46WT510 46" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Sony, 54" Projection Screen HDTV that I bought in 2002. I believe it is a 1080i. When I am waatching TV, I notice that when the screen is mostly black, for instance a night scene, the black areas change to a blue hue. This seems to wash out the picture as well. If the screen is showing bright colors, the picture is fine. Can someone tell me what might be going on here and how to fix it?

Confirm the actual model number as the one indicated in the title is not HD.

Some of these sets had bad picture tubes that on a black screen or blank video input may in your case show faint curved lines and or some color (red,green or blue) present in the background.

If this is the case there is a fairly simple way to attempt to adjust something for this--not in the customer menu but fairly easy to get at and try.


Most of these sets were KP51ws500, 57500 etc.

I need to replac the screen (diffusion plate) on sony kdf60wf655


For one, a ton of money.  The screen is usually 2/3rd of the cost of the TV.  Second, I believe you will have to either ship or drive the TV to Sony as I don't believe they have in-home service.  You should start by calling Sony or visiting their website.

If the convergence is very far off the convergence ICs are bad and need to be replaced first. If the convergence is close and it wont correct it might just be an insect or some dust on the sensors at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock posistions behind the screen.
