Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television
Hi, Our set has very fine red lines going horizontally across the entire screen. they have a slight curve to them.When the picture is adjusted using the DRC from interlaced to progressive the lines become further apart.The picture quality is great. Nice and sharp, the color is equal all over and can be adjusted by the hue and color buttons. But there are those red lines, very fine but annoying. Especially when the background is dark.Is this an adjustment we don't know how to do or something going wrong that would need a repairman to fix it. Thanks D. Brant
The initial reply is correct, you need to try the convergence / retrace lines Basically you need to open the TV and the job is about 15 minutes to solve the issue with arched lines, either blue, greed, or red. There is a great how-to guide here with step-by-step pictures here: http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html

It is an adjustment, but it's an adjustment you may not want to do. It's the red screen control. It's located behind the front panel so the entire front panel has to be removed in order to access it-which will expose you to hazardous voltages. if you like, I can post detailed instructions on how to get that front panel off, it's kinda tricky.
