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!

yes, I have the 6 foot model, it works perfectly as it was only used for a few years. I am in the process of moving and need to sell the unit (ape not included!) n Have all service and operator manuals as well!

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)

You happen to have any manuals? I am troubleshooting my sound...
post #128 of 139
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?
post #130 of 139
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!
post #134 of 139
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!

It cool to see this thread come back to the top, i remember first reading this thread like a year ago when i stumbled upon one of these units on kijiji

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
