Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDP-57XBR2 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Thin red horizontal lines across screen

I get these slightly curved thin red horizontal lines across the screen.
They are stationary and don't effect the picture but are annoying in the background.
I just set the tv up. Its new to me (about 5 years old).
Right now its only running through a Tivo which is on rabbit ears. I have it plugged into TV with standard red/white/yellow cable.

Any ideas.

Replace the focus block or try to adjust the screen control on the focus block for red only. this will affect the white balance of the set so adjust it carefully. the focus block is located on the front inside the set. remove the speaker cover then the 4 screws on the front plate. the focus block is 3" x 2" black box with 6 adjustment posts three for focus and three for screen. adjust only the affected screen (R).

Thin red horizontal lines appear when viewing a dark background

Look around this sight the answer is explained here. you hace to take off the front speaker cover and a small panal undder it. you will find six knobs on a small panal. use these to adjust the settings fotr the power and they will remove the lines. You will need to have the tv on and I would sugest a normal size phillips head screwdriver not a power tool.

Thin red horizontal lines across screen

While looking at your TV, remove the bottom right speaker grill. There you will find a cover held by a couple of screws. Remove the screws and behind the cover you will find the "focus pack" which is a group of 6 adjustment screws. The top screws adjust (in order from left to right) the brightness of Red, Green and Blue.

What you will do preferably at night (or with the room dark) turn the top left adjustment screw (Red) all the way to the left and then gradually turn it to the right until the point you can see the retrace line and then turn it slightly to the left until the retrace line disappears. That's it! You can do this for all three colors - if need be. These do go out of adjustment every now and then. The 3 screws on the bottom are to focus the colors individually to minimize "bloom" on the screen. It's best to be in service mode on your TV when doing this OR open up the cabinet and cover (with something) the other 2 colors while you adjust the focus of the color you're adjusting.

Good Luck!

Tv not working

this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!

Horizontal 'pinstripe' lines on all channels

sound like the screen control on the flyback is set just a little too high. the flyback has the red wire attached to the tube. the flyback has 2 small adjustable controls. if you look close enough 1 is marked focus & on is screen. turn the screen slightly to the left & look at your picture. the screen is like a master brightness & if it's up too high you will see what is called retrace lines. good luck.
