Question about Sony KP-53N77 TV

1 Answer

We need to clean our Sony KP-53N77. We have some spider webs inside the protective screen and our color is a little fuzzy. We have never had the mirrors cleaned. How do we access the areas to clean and is there a danger of shock even if the TV is unplugged?

Remove the back hardboard cover by removing all the screws and lifting the cover up and toward you.

Mirror will be above but usually doesnt get dusty. Try not to touch it if you can. Same with back of screen. If you have a spider web just use a soft dry cloth to wipe it away.

You will likely find the upward facing lamp lenses covered in dust. Clean these with a soft cloth moistened with glasses cleaning solution. Glass cleaner works too.

    There is a risk of shock from the large capacitors on the circuit boards. These are the small canisters soldered onto the boards. They can hold a charge for some time. Just don't go out of your way to touch the exposed wiring and it goes without saying thay you will unplug the tv and let it cool before opening it up.

I have a sony kp-53n77 rear projection tv i cleaned the lenses but i still have alittle to much red how can i clean up the color


Older projection set:

Not knowing exactly what it looks like I suggest two things: first in the menu look for convergence to see if it is off adjustment wise--it can be adjusted in customer mode to see if that helps.

Also either turn color all the way off (Black and white) to see what color the screen is with no color--if somewhat red you will need to turn the red screen control down--I can tell you where and how.

If screen is too red, red will be the prominent background color with color off or on.

Another easy way to LOOK is go to an unused video input---should only see "Input 1" for example in green and rest of screen should be black and not red to any degree.

Let me know with a comment here what you find.

Spider webs in tv


Easiest way to deal with this is unplug set and remove the back cover. The area inside is fairly open---with a swiffer type duster reach in carefully and remove all the spider webs. Go easy along the inside of the inner screen so you do not scratch it or damage it.

Let me know if you have questions.

Sounds like you need to clean the lenses and reflective area inside your set. It is easy and all you need is a screwdriver, windex and a paper towel. UNPLUG YOUR TV.   Take off your screen and screen protector and safely set them aside. 
Clean only the lenses ( glass part) and the reflective mirror type area on the top of the inside of your set.  It will look like new. You need to do this at least once a year.

Scratch on the screen


Unfortunately, no. The protective screen has to be replaced. Is it a scratch for sure, or possibly a spider web inside?

Sony KP-53N77 has no sound, no picture. Just a red blinking light.


How many times does it blink? It should blink a series of blinks pause second then blink again if it is in protective shutdown. Try to count the blinks then let me know if ts putting out a code or not.
