Lines on top and bottom on projection TV

Used this site to adjust the red line on my Sony projection TV. Now I just need to get rid of the lines on the top and bottom of the screen and it's good to go. Thanx for any help.

    Streak type lines black and white. Present with all input sources, widescreen option would be cool but it's only available with videos not TV. Thank you for any help.

What sort of lines? - do you mean like it is in widescreen mode with a black band top and bottom? Do you mean you have clear straight lines, or streaks or scratch-like marks? Is it the same for all input sources (cable, DVD/VCR, satellite, PC, camcorder etc.? Could you post back a photo of the lines? Waiting your info:)

KP-61HS10 with 6 blinks

Set screen voltages. To get to the adjustment board, take the front speaker grill off (two screws at the bottom left and right) and set it aside. No need to disconnect any wires. Then remove the plywood board with 4 screws that exposes the screen/focus adjustments. The top 3 adjustments are for focus, and you need not mess with these. The bottom 3 adjustments are for Red/Blue/Green screen voltage rough adjustments. My screen showed red lines, so I had to turn the bottom right adjustment with a philips head screwdriver just slightly until the red gun retrace lines where no longer visible.
Hope This Helps

Those are retrace lines. I had the same problem. See the pot adjustment procedure below.

NO CALLS NEEDED TO AN EXPERT. THEY WILL CHARGE YOU FOR LITTLE ADJUSTMENT YOU CAN DO YOURSELF.
READ THE WEBSITE BELOW AND MAKE ADJUSTMENT TO THE SCREEN VOLTAGES TO CLEAR SCREEN, BUT DO IT SLOWLY. IT SHOULD CLEAR THE PROBLEM.

Yes you have bad green and red crt but with an adjustment you can still use it. remove the front panel and you'll see the focus pack (it;s a black piece with 6 rotating knobs on it. Adjust clock otherwise the red and green screen (the bottom line knobs) till the lines has gone. The better way to check it is to adujt in video input with no signal, just black screen.

One of the convergence output IC's has stopped working and needs to be replaced. If the IC shorts out then it will draw too much current and possibly blow a fuse, and the set will shut down to protect itself. The IC should be replaced and the set realigned by someone with experience in convergence circuits.

Faint red lines in a curved arch like pattern

Guys I did this myself real easy. Just don't turn the corresponding screw too far. Only need to adjust it until the lines go away. Do it on a darker screen so the lines are more visible. I did the red 2 years ago and the green 6months before that. The blue lines are coming on my screen now and I've fixed it in 10 minutes. The TV is amazing.

Green arcs from bottom up with darkest one at bottom on dark screens

there is a way to get rid of the lines, you need to enter a code from your remote to access a hidden menu. From there you can adjust the lasers in the tv(green lines)I beleive it is very sensitive though, if done wrong can reck the tv. Not sure of the code or directions on how to exactly adjust the lasers, actually looking for them my self. Hope i was some help though!

57" 2003 sony non-xbr projextion

there's a lot of talk in the internet that the pots in the front of the tv will take these (horizontal?) lines out . i have the kp-57hw40, and there is a web site with pictures on making the adjustment. i believe the bottom 3 pots are blue, green, red going from left to right. mark the pots first so you know where you started, and they say it takes just a hair adjustment counter clockwise to remove the lines. Only go to the point the lines disappear. web site shows how to get front cover off via two screws hidden in bottom and then take off the cardboard cover to get at pots. Not to be smart, but don't be careless, keep hands out since there are high voltage circuits just inside there. . . .
