    are these usually in the menu or are these the controls that are usually in the back and sometimes have to remove the cover.

There should be controls for height and linearity. They may be labeled as Vertical, Hold or Size.

Hope this helps. :)

Replaced lamp, however 50% of screen continues to turn black when the TV is on a long time.


This problems it is not fixable or worth fixing because of the CRT picture tube of screen itself.Slowly dying,now the tv it is not worth a whole tv anymore if tv require a new CRT picture tube.CRT picture tube,if u can get a hold of it,most likely only can buy it from the tvs corporations themselves only and they charges u like a new tv,because the CRT picture screen it self 90% important to the tv functions itself.

On My sony kp 53s75 tv the picture does not fill the whole screen on the HD channels


it is most likely normal--first generation HD sets were 4X3 which means picture is either small left and right or top and bottom; sets which have 16X9 offer full screen HD

Red lines on Sony KP51HW40 Rear projection TV


Yeah, seen that more times than I shoulda in the last 4 years. The red picture tube has a cathode to heater short. That means it's no good. That red picture tube is no longer availible. But all is not lost. There is a company that rebuilds those tubes reasonably. Most reputable tv shops will know this. The ones I've done cost around $450 out the door. One minor hitch is that with all the shipping involved the job usually takes about three weeks. That can be expidited but then the price goes up.

My 1080i has a triple picture, can you help?


Hi,
It definitely can be fixed the IC chips (called STKs) that line up the images from each picture tube are failing.Sometimes a fuse or resistor go out along with the chips. The parts would cost around $100 + whatever labor charge if you hire someone.

you need a green CRT thats whay you have the white kind of concave lines with the green screen. You can try adjusting the green screen control but you need anew CRT ( tube) the speaker cover has two plastic plugs that get removed on the lower edge os the grille which covers the two screws that hold the grille on. If you need more assistancr or where to get a green CRT let me know as I have a link that has some green and red Tubes for your model.

i just found out why, turn on ur tv and remove back look directly into 3 lenses, if the picture is not nice and clear or looks snowy in all 3 u will not get good color or brightness. I removed my blue tube assembly and took it apart WHILE OUT OF TV. there is cooling fluid between lense and tube, this fluid over time will build a film on the face of the tube and get thick enough to block the tube from projecting picture. (MARK EDGES IT GOES BACK TO GETHERE THE SAME WAY IT CAME APART).Find some new fluid then carefully dissasemble and clean interior of lense, housing and tube thouroughly. Reassemble and fill with new fluid. Do not use old fluid it will be cloudy and snow globe effect. Only do 1 tube at a time this will allow u to realign cross manually as close as possible before u perform convergence. Leave the green for last that is the center and the red and blue are moved to match green. Also be sure to clean mirror and back of screen. Pete

First of all you need to find out which CRT leaked and replace it before any other repairs are done. The clear liquid is conductive and has done damage to the CRT board or boards.

Look in manuel for convergence setting and reset. This happens if your set has been moved lately or shaken adbruptly.

TV won't come on!


Most likely, this is a problem with the convergence board. The convergence amps (STK392-040 x 2)are internally shorted. These can be replaced or the whole convergence board can be replaced. It's cheaper to replace the amps, but more convienent to replace the board (especially for the less electronically inclined!! :) Also, this could be from a leaking CRT. In CRT projection televisions, the red, green, and blue tube are filled with coolent (glycol). These 42" models are very bad about the tubes leaking (Akai and Samsung models)and are infamous for destroying the CRT driver board connected to the bottom of each tube. When this happens, the protection circuit kicks in and will not let the television start up. *PLEASE, FOR YOUR OWN SAKE, DO NOT FOLLOW THESE NEXT STEPS IF YOU HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING OF ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT!!!! There are four screws and three snap clips that hold the bottom on. UNPLUG THE TELEVISION, remove the screws and pull bottom outward to remove. The bottoms of the three tubes should be visible. DON'T TOUCH THEM!! Now look under each tube. If one is leaking, there will be a wet spot (or sometimes a puddle!) underneath the tube. This will have to be serviced by a TV tech. Hope this helps...
