Question about Sony KP-53V45 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Yellow vertical bar on right edge of screen

I have a Sony 53" rear projection screen that is 11 years old. Just recently there has been a yellow vertical bar on the right edge of the screen (about 2" wide), and I'm getting a 3D effect with some images (shadowed images are blue). I checked the convergence and the cross hairs line up white, but the edges of the horizontal bar are yellow (both sides). Any ideas what's going bad?

Your set is starting to get a convergence problem and the only way to repair it is by changing the convergence IC's,(3)one for each color,the blue migh be showing more now but soon all 3 colors will be out of alignment and you will not be able to correct it with the custumer controls,is great that it has worked for so long without this problem,if you are familiar with tv service you have a place to check but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help from a pro-servicer.Let Us know how it goes.

My TV is about 9 years old and is a Rear Video Projector. Lately it has been losing the colors. Sometimes a lot of purple and other times a lot of yellow.

Although you may want to keep your television unfortunately your pixels die. However you may try raising the tint on the television manually (It is usually a knob on old television sets), and maybe that will lessen the effects.

DEVOLPING YELLOW LINE ON SCREEN

The yellowing of Sony’s KDF-60WF655 rear projection is a problem with the SXRD optical engine. This turned out to be a big problem on many of the SXRD TV's. Sony actually had a class action lawsuit that covered the optical engine for 5 years. My unit was replaced in June of last year (2009) about 1 month before the coverage ended. My unit had a bad yellow streak on the right hand side. Sony no longer covers the cost of replacement, as the class action suit has now expired. Sorry for the bad news. Its not clear if a new optical engine will suffer the same fate after a few years. Sony’s rear projection TV's are amazing and the picture rivals many of today’s LCD's and Plasma's. Any authorized Sony Tv repair shop will no exactly your problem and will be able to give you a fixed price to repair.
Hope this helps

Blue haze and dull yellow patches on screen

The light engine in your set has gone belly up. It is a very expensive repair. Good news is that on a whole bunch of models like yours Sony has extended the waranty on the light engine. Check with a local authorized Sony service center and give them the model & serial number and you might get a free ride. If I were a betting man I'd take odds on 'you're in luck'. LOL
