That is a cool device and you should take care of it as best you can so that it lasts as long as possible!

Good luck with it

Hi Verge!
I had only read the first 2 pages on this thread when I posted. I'll give this thing to anyone who'll come get it in North Little Rock. I also know where its twin is, also in Arkansas. Mine and the other one came from Channel 4. They used them for special events.

Why odd to see Arkies here? Just 'cause no one on the Weather Channel thinks we have TVs, we do!

Anyway, don't slip on the ice!

Hey there! Just wanted you to know that there is another KP5000 out there... this one in Idaho. The only thing wrong with it (aside from adjusting the picture) is that the sound card's fuse is blown, so I have no sound. I am, right now, trying to source a 250v 1.0amp 5x30mm glass fuse. Wish me luck!!

(pics soon)

Got it Fuse on sound board was blown, and when I fixed it, hooked it back up, I confused two terminals and something overheated. Fortunately Sony must have put in a timed breaker on the power... minutes later it fired up with sound!

Hello, to anyone with some knowledge of this Television... I am trying to connect it with my computer. I have all devices and wires to connect from the computer to an RCA input device which then converts the signal to coax (ch 3 or 4).

Problem from there is, I cannot find the signal on any channels on the television. Any advice?

Sure, I can help with that. FIrst off, does your video card have an RCA output connector that connects to the RF modulator?

Thanks, It is a macbook with http://www.amazon.com/Apple-Video-Ad...6803474&sr=1-3 which connects RCA to an RCA to coax converter, then to the television's coax input

Add me to the list of users! Picked mine up on craigslist, had filthy lenses and mirrors... i've done the best I could with brushing and vaccumming dust from 1979 out of it (I'm not sticking my hand any further in there than I have to, LOL)

Does anyone have the FSM or a manual that details the "service" convergence procedure? I had a VPH-1020Q and i was familiar with that one, you'd shut one gun off and adjust the two remaining, then shut that one off and do the opposite, etc... but this one has me a little stymied. The red is off, but blue and green are centered. Is red the reference tube (I assume so, since the red tube's pots are metal and mounted away from the plastic ones). On the 1020 it was green.

Anyway, i'm very impressed by the brightness and clarity of the picture... if i could just get that darned red convergence right!

No, green is always the reference, since it's the middle tube. If you tweaked the 1020, you'll have no issues with the KP sets. A bit more archaic, with controls everywhere. The trick is to tweak each one slightly very slightly to get a feel for what they do, and it's probably an idea to get a can of Caig DeOxIt and use it sparingly on all controls. (buy it on eBay).

That should keep ya going!

I have a complete Sony kp-7200 with the original box for the screen, dust cover, manual and remote commander.
she's beautiful and with low hour, Everyone is jealous of it. Sony really knew how to make em. I'd be willing to part with her for the right price but its not going to be cheap. This baby is worth a boat load as I'm reading that no one else in the world has a set as complete as mine. hit me up if you want to be the most rad dude in the world

Question KP-7200 Lens Specifications ?

Thumbs up Thanks and History of my KP7200.

Thanks. Please PM me whenever you regain access to the manual.

I might sell it if I find an interested local party (I live in the greater Los Angeles area) but I was also thinking that those lenses look so excellent I could cannibalize them to create TWO new home built LCD projectors. If I do it right I could always re-install the lenses to the KP7200 later. I just need to know the lens specs including the speed and dimensions.

Obviously these are short throw lenses. I know that about the time of its manufacture (1979) a lot of "new" f/1.0 lens materials (not glass) were being used in the industry but I do not know if these are such lenses.

HISTORY:

I saved the unit & screen (sadly the remote was missing ) from a corporate trash pile following the Northridge Earthquake. The base unit rode out the quake protected in a foam padded flight case (see below). The top of the case took a lot damage but the unit was safe inside -- I still have it mounted in the bottom section of the case. As far as I know (per some folks at the corporation that was dumping it) the system was old but in perfect working order. However because the screen was not in a case it took some dings & scratches during the quake -- it is okay/useable but needs some TLC with some buffing compound -- they decided to replace it with a new tabletop projector instead so I got the throwaway. I never had any knowledge of how to diagnose/maintain the electronics (which is why the repair manual piqued my interest) so it has sat in storage for many years.

PS: Many people have seen "flight cases" but don't know they are called that. Attached are examples of flight cases.

My first projector was the Rank Arena version of the Sony KP5000. It had a 60 inch attached screen and believe it or not some kind of EM focus. The tubes were large and round. It had a really good picture compared to the Sony and the Panasonic units.
