Question about Sony KP-53XBR200 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Sony 53" XBR

We purchased it in the early 1990's when the Good Guys was still around. A few months ago our Sony began to have yellow and blue ghosts around the images on the right side of TV. Now the picture appears to have a problem, where it bows on top and bottom, and both sides. With this everything is obviously blurry. Is this a fixable problem, and is it worth the fix? Please let me know, and thank you for your opinion. If its time to move on then what is recommended? Not too savvy yet on different tv's: Digital vs. HDTV, LCD, DTV, or anything else out there. I read somewhere that HDTV is part of DTV and new sets are DTV ready after 7/1/06 in US. But if this is true then why do we have to pay more on cable bill for HD if they are the ones changing this.

Have you tried adjusting teh convergence using the remote control? See the owners manual. Appears you might need to align 2 of the 3 color guns (usually blue and red) to the cross hatch pattern.

Yellow to green tent screen to hitachi tv 42v715


You have some reason to believe it will not?

Some history for you---several years ago Hitachi began along with others to have issues with the optical light engines.

With a mix of high heat from a lamp into the engine (it has a blue,green and red section inside---guess what? BLUE is the first place that gets the heat and is damaged----minus blue and you have red and green which equals YELLOW.

Several of their sets made about 6 years ago (research 50v500) had exact same issues and were settled in a class action lawsuit.

The issue can but does not always affect the entire screen.

The question really is: This set really worth the part and labor cost for the repair?

On that earlier model I replaced under warranty over 40 of the engines. Also Sony and others have had similar issues some of which were settled in court.

HOPE IT WORKS OUT FOR YOU.

I replaced the main lamp 6 months ago. Now I have blue on the right, yellow in the middle and normal color on the left. I also have a ghost image of tree branches on the whole screen.


Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine.

The part replaced is the blue convergence IC, part number usually

STK392-040 .A generic IC will last 10-12 months.You must have

OEM or better quality for durable repair. I use Panasonic brand.

Change both IC's for long repair duration.
