20 Most Recent Sony KP-53S65 53" Rear Projection Television - Page 2 Questions & Answers


Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.


Thanks for using Fixya.

You would need another cable box to watch a different channel on the secondary picture. If you can hook up another cable box then that one will plug into the secondary input.

try MCM electronics or Suburban electronics. The main thing is you want a capacitor rated at 390uF with a working voltage of 2000V. Take note of the size and orientation of the part. You don't have to buy the part from Sony, you just need to know what you are buying if that makes sense.

my advice is to call sears. I had mine fixed for $300. they charge $99 to come out and get the estimate and decide from there

Hello, first make sure the red horizontal and vertical adjust do move(up/down, right/left) sometimes the pico fuses open and that is why one color does not align. If the pico fuses are not the problem reset the red adjustment as much as you can to their mid settings and adjust the centering rings on the red CRT to converge in the middle of the screen, then try your dyn. convergence again, this should get the red to converge.

popping noise is a power supply problem.

hello well it's and old tv, my guess it could be capacitors in the power supply or even dry joints on the power supply board, it would be best to have someone with electronic experience to have a look at it

mrrcody56,

If you have a picture, but only in green, I would try turning up the drive for the red and blue guns. They have probably changed and need a boost. This does mean that the CRTs are dying and may not have too much time left.

To turn up the drive first remove the back cover on the bottom. You will have to work on this unit live so be very careful and do not touch anything other than what I tell you.

Look at the space above the main circuit board. Somewhere across the beam supporting the CRTs you will see a square box with 6 controls (shafts). You can locate the box if you follow the wires from the flyback to the box. The flyback is located on the right rear corner and produces the high voltage. It will have 4 large red rubber wires coming out of it. Three go to the focus divider block (the box in question) then they go on to the crts (red, green, blue).

Once you locate the focus divider look at it closely. The focus controls are on top and the drives are on the bottom. They should be marked red, green and blue. You want to turn up the red and blue. Tune a picture with as much black as possible. While watching it turn up the red until you see a red tint or streak then turn down until it just disappears. Do the same with the blue. You may want to touch up the green also.

If the set is working OK your picture should look normal.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

Try connecting any other device to the TV to confirm the issue. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings.
Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest a shop.

A lot of times when that problem happens, its most likely not the lamp, when the lamp is the issue you can still hear a sound on your TV but no picture, most likely where looking at a problem with your power supply board or ballast, there might be something wrong with them that keeps from sending voltage to the lamp and audio parts, but on the other hand if you wish to change your lamp, depending on the model it can be on the back or sides of the TV, there is a little door with 4 screws that leads to the housing where the lamp is, you just need to pull out the housing and take it apart, its a actually a very easy task, you can have it done in like 5 min. an easier way is to purchase the whole lamp with the housing and just pull the old one and insert the new one in, less than 5 min!! If you have any other question don't hesitate on asking.

Hi,
This kind of symptom appears due to problem in convergence section and mostly reason is convergence out chips failure that need to be replaced by qualified local tv repairman because it requires soldering work in tv circuit board. It is common problem of rear projection tv and repair cost would be around $170 or so.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.
