Anytime you smell burning. it's a good idea to unplug it and keep it that way. considering what you described your power supply module is definitely fried. hopefully you cut the power in time a qualified repair tech should help you with the replacement of the defective parts. ( don't do this yourself) you will save yourself from making the problem worse. and it will cost you more than you intend on...good luck please rate

You can see the red blue and green lines on my tv it is like it is out of sync


I'm not sure what you mean by the "lines". If you mean the image looks like "double" (or triple!) vision, then you need to adjust the red/green/blue convergence. This is especially noticeable with white images on dark background (like text of credits). If this is it, check you manual or explore your menu via the remote. Sometimes convergence can be a problem if the tv was moved or experienced large changes in temperature... or sometimes all by itself!

Getting red, blue and green halos around images


I had a similar problem with red halos around images on my Hitachi rear projection TV. The problem was that the red convergence chip burned out. I replaced that and that fixed the problem. I found several forum posts on similar symptoms and fixes for Sony rear projection TVs by searching for "Sony rear projection convergence problem." Likely you've already tried the auto-convergence function for your set, if it has that.

Double image/ out of focus with green and blue seperation


Your tv is crt-based and is out of convergence. In other words, the settings for keeping the Red, Green and Blue images aligned have drifted and must be reset. This is common with CRT projectors and CRT rear projection tvs.

Refer to your owners manual for instructions on re-aligning it.
