Hello stimka01,
let me just get straight to the point. Your lite engine is defective. There is no fixing it. You just need to replace it. The new engine will cost you about $700.00 and thats a friendly price. You can probably install it yourself. This engine is one of the less painful to install. You can contact me for assistant in installing the engine after you purchase it.

best regards

Sony KP-53HS30 started with Pink and Blue picture and timer blink


You probably have one or more bad CRT's causing the problem. Due to the age of the set and cost of repair, I would not invest the money needed to repair the set properly. I would replace all three CRT's and the cost would run over 1000.00 up to 1300.00 .
With the cost of new sets today, you could replace it.
I hope this helps,

Sony KP-53HS30 Projection TV has pink and blue hue w/timer blink


Depending on your TV, you may have a Color Temperature (Color Temp) and/or Hue setting in the menu. Use these options to adjust the picture to the setting that best suits your viewing preference.
If your TV has a Color Temp setting, you will normally have the following options to select from:
  • Cool: Gives the picture a cooler, slightly bluish appearance.
  • Neutral: Gives the picture a neutral, more natural look and appearance.
  • Warm: Gives the picture a warmer, slightly reddish appearance.
If your TV has a Hue setting, follow the appropriate step below to make adjustments:
  1. Move the setting to the right to reduce the reddish appearance.
  2. Move the setting to the left to reduce the greenish appearance.

Have a blue tint or hue on the screen of my Hitachi 50vs69 television. The tint does not cover the whole screen just an irregular pattern near the middle vertical axis of the screen.


The Optical Block is causing this. Due to the cost of replacing I would call Hitachi at 1800-448-2244 and see if they would be will to help you with the cost.
Hope this helps,

Sony, tv comes on color fine, then turns red


I had the same problem with my TV, but the hue was blue. I was told that not only did I have to replace the picture tube that wasn't staying on, but I would have to replace them all because they would not mix properly. After much investigation, I found that there is an adjustment for a variable power supply to each tube that can brighten and lighten each tube. I adjusted the RED pot and my picture color issue was resolved! To access this adjustment you must remove the front panel on the TV. At the bottom corners there are two small screw covers that you must remove. Then un-screw the screws under the covers. Then pull the front panel off of the TV, (it hooks under the top near the screen so it will swing out from the bottom). Now remove the wooden panel in the center, (four screws). The pot adjustments are at the bottom of the TV. They are marked for Red, Blue, and Green. They are extremely sensitive, don't turn them much! If you over adjust you will get red, green, or blue lines on your screen. Adjust back down to remove these, (this is also the remedy for removing these lines that can appear over time). Good Luck and God Bless!

A blue semi-circular hue on the bottom left of the screen


9 times out of 10 the Blue Polarizer heats up and discolors which causes that problem, all projector's have the same issue and have for years. My professional recommendation is get in touch with Sony, they have been extending the warranty's for this issue. If they won't the have a servicer replace the light engine of which is not cheap.

3LCD Projection TV 2.5 years old displaying blue hue/blobs


I would first try a new lamp. If the reflector portion of the lamp has any defects, it could show up this way as the light would not be uniform. The next possibility is a defective light engine. The engine portion if not field repairable and would need to be replaced. Try the lamp first and let us know what happens.

Blue hue on screen


Probably the optics block. It needs to be replaced.

However, it looks like you're in luck. Sony will reimburse you.
