Help! My projection t.v. has been sprayed by a 3yr old!
Ok, I have a Sony KP43T75, and we've had it now for about 3 years. Worked GREAT up until...my 3 yr old sprayed it with our sink sprayer from the kitchen into the living room. It didn't get totally soaked, but now, of course there is no pic. at all. It turns on, I only know this because after being plugged in, it makes that little click noise, but no sound or picture happens. Am I in real trouble here? Please help me out, my husband will have the big one:) Does it just need time to dry out? lol...I sure hope so. Thanks for any comments or advice. (by the way, I was in the gameroom, folding a load of clothes and he woke up early from his nap and was VERY quiet). Little terd bird! PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

if you have s-video out on your laptop you can plug it in that way, or you can TRY a VGA to RCA cable, i've found these hardly ever work correctly, but they're relatively cheap compared to a new laptop lol. it looks like the only inputs on that TV are S-Video and component, which means you're pretty limited.
check the convergence area for bad solder http://home.earthlink.net/~oleg.filippov/ConvergenceFix.htm http://cmpalmer.blogspot.com/2006/11/fixing-my-own-tv-part-ii.html Sony Convergence http://www.techlore.com/blog/entry/19694/Sony-Convergence-Repair-My-Sony-TV-has-a-distorted-picture-/ http://www.techlore.com/article/19631/Sony-Convergence-Procedure/
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.
