Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blue Screen How do you fix a tuner on this tv? We called the nearest tv repairman and he said he doesn't travel this far but we could bring it in he would fix it. Since this is a 51 inch tv, it would be a pain to move. Especially if they are going to tell me it is going to cost $800 to fix. I may as well go out and buy a new one. Is this a costly fix?

    the tuner is what the cable screws onto..the tv repair shop can order the new tuner for you if you ask him to

    if you take it to a shop they are going to charge alot more to fix it the tuner itself isnt that expenxive and if you know how to solder you can install it yourself.all you have to to is unsolder the old tuner and solder in the new one takes about an hour

Small blue dots all over the picture screen


In your tv the image is generated by 3 small LCD screens. In your case the blue LCD is dying - some pixels from it are no longer responding to the commands of the image processor.
To fix it you must replace the blue LCD screen. This is a very delicate job that requires extensive experience - you will have to call a repairman - and it will be expensive, around $600.

Auto focus problem


The auto focus is not actually focusing the tv. When it is running it is adjusting the convergence. Most likely the repairman that replaced your tuner didn't plug the sensor wires back in. I would call him back out and have him hook it back up.

There should be a convergence menu in the tv. Use the samsung remote and go into the menu and look for convergence.

Sony 65 inch screen tv


The lines you saw, i;m sure they are the ones called retrace lines but know the failure could be located on the red CRT board. Most likely the video amplifier is defective and not necessarily the CRT.

Its the tuner or the signal board and yes good call with the extended warranty. I always say on big ticket items, if your not a repairman, buy that extended warranty.
