Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF60WE610 60" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Color balance is off. Colors change between over saturated red, blue or green

Bump the television and the colors can change. I would rather buy the parts myself from someone like andrews electronics and repair on my own dollar.

Any Suggestios from fixya gurus.

    Hello Abrsvcs,



    Screwed up on my posting put some pertinent info. in the subject area and it got cut off...my bad.



    Allow me to elaborate, the TV will maintain a saturated picture using the green, blue or red colors only. In some instances when I smack the TV the over saturated RGB changes to one or the other color. In a similar posting on this web site i noticed a couple of people had similar complaint. The response was a possible scalar board problem and or optical engine is bad.



    Thoughts?

    Steve

    Hello Dan,



    I didn't get to see every board inside this behemoth 60" Sony GRAND WEGA KF60WE610 but all solder joints seemed to be OK. Just for your edification, before I dismantled the TV I noticed this video Red/Green/Blue problem would occur on all video outputs regardless of what video input was used, CD, DVR, Video Cam etc.



    Any ideas on the next move?

    Steve

You said that when you bump the television color will change .most likely this problem is a loose connection or cold solder of the joint of the soldered part..but you said solder joint is to be OK, it seems you have the knowledge in electronics and tv cercuitry.Problem like this is in the CHROMA-BANDPASS AMPLIFIER section there is an IC there ,these IC process the color ,change this IC and make some reheating the solder in this section..

I have a hitachi 50c20 tv and it has a red tint/hue across the whole screen


Are you using component cables into the TV? It sounds like one of the 3 video cables may have come out saturating the red colors. Check your cabling int he back of the TV, see if you remove 1 by one if that changes the colors. Each cable on its own should have a picture with either red green or blue colors. If any of them are missing the picture then the colors will get messed up when all 3 are plugged in. If you are not using component cables then check the color settings on your TV. Somewhere int he menu of the television you should have something like picture display settings that let you adjust the colors. Check and make sure that the reds are not over configured or the others are not set too low. You may also want to check that your source is proper as well. Check that other sources look okay or if it is with all different connectors/sources that the issue occurs on.

HOW DO YOU ADJUST RED,GREEN,BLUE TUBES


If your talikng about alignment that is done through the Convergence feature. If its the color balance youre refering too its most likley indicating that the CRT coolant needs replacment as that will make the red Tube dominate and wash out both blue and green colors untill they appear dull and dim.

No Red color at all. The convergence feature does not work either. Lots of green and blue RCA Model D52W59


Red color gun has failed, which will make the picture over saturated with the other two colors(blue,green) the bad news is the three color guns need to be replace in a set(all at the same time) because if you only replace the red it will over saturate the older blue, green guns then your picture will be mostly red.Unfortunently in most cases it's not worth the investment, better off to purchase a new tv. Good luck !

TV picture is red.


Normal color picture is composed with 3 colors R-G-B (Red-Green-Blue). Picture turns Red means: Missing Green and Blue colors (many reasons: bad contacts, projector tubes dead, and other...). Try to give some "tabs" to diagnose ... I don't know what is the type of your Projection TV, how long you owned it, to have more idea.

RED TINT OVERPOWERS COLOR


You're probably missing one of the other colors, green most likely or blue.
There are adjustments that can be made to bring things back into balance but you need to know what you're doing.
First, I'd have a look and make sure all your tubes are working correctly.

Aadjusting screen colors


They should be adjusted to set voltages. however it is best to shut the color level to the lowest setting then try t balance the screens to achieve the best black and white picture. then turn up your color level. Your brightness level should also be set to 50 % then when you adjust for the best B&W picture. You will have better color and brightness when you reset your color and brightness levels. Hope this helps.

Philips 50P8341 50 in. Rear Projection Television most of the color is red


Usually if you remove the speaker grill in front there is a convergence panel that can be carefully removed. If you look inside you should see a small rectangular block with six controls. They are labelled focus and screen, and red, blue and green. Adjust only the screen controls very carefully and slowly. I would recommend reducing the red slightly brfore raising the green and then blue until the picture looks acceptable. Be sure to center the on screen controls before starting.
