Question about Sony KP-53HS30 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

I have owned a Sony color Rear Video Projector for about 9 years and its a wonderful TV. Until recently. The screen has an image that has a shadow effect. The images (becoming 2) had made the screen unclear and not as sharp and bright as before. Like there was a shadow approx 1 inch apart. Would there be an adjustment that i could do or would i need a tv repair person or a new piece of equipment to solve this problem?

I recently bought a Sony KP-53HS30 rear video TV


Hello Sarah!
There is no bulb to replace in your TV. Image is created by three CRT's and you don't want to replace them, just trust me on that one. It could cost you up to $1800 to do that.
All you can do is to clean lenses of those CRT's. You have to disconnect TV from the power outlet and remove rear cover. Using very soft brush and vacuum cleaner remove dust from Red, Green and Blue CRT lenses. Do not use solutions unless you got something special for optics. Solutions will leave film on the surfaces. That would improve brightness and contrast of image.
To adjust focus front grille have to be removed. Than central piece cover held by 5 screws. Behind it you can locate black plastic "box" size little smaller than cigarette pack. there are 6 adjustment "screws". Three of them are "screen". You don't touch those. Another three "focus" there is one for each color. Turn TV on. Hit "menu" button. And adjust focus for each color separately. If menu goes away hit it again.
This is the only improvements you can do.
Everything else will involve humongous amounts of cash.
Good luck!
Russ.

SONY rear projection TV - Whites have started looking "snowy"


This is your Picture tubes getting very weak.( low in emission ) You have three in there and I guarantee they are no longer available so I would start thinking about investing in a new set, but use that one until you can't stand it anymore.
