Issue with Sony KP61 HS10. Please help!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys... I just bought an HLT6187S to replace my relegated-to-video-games seven year old KP61 HS10.

BUT, all of a sudden in 4:3 on the KP, something is all KINDS of crazy on every input. I am getting pincushion on top and bottom of over 1.5/2.0 inches. Additionally, the colors will not converge at all. The center is fine but the more toward all four corners you go the more they are separated. By a LOT, like an inch or so off. The kicker is that everything is perfect in 16:9 on input 5. As soon as I switch back to 4:3 though it freaks out again.

I was just watching a DVD on input 5 in 16:9/1080i and when I switched back to 4:3/480i and the problem was there just like that. I guess I was wondering if anyone has seen this issue before or could tell me if there is are some button acrobatics I can use to reset everything to a factory default. I have not messed around in the service menu as I am not sure how to get in there. I am out of ideas. Anyone help?

Thanks very much!

Eric

You might try re-assigning your inputs so say DVD is on input 3. I have the 61HS10 and so far my only problem is it takes awhile for it to focus. Sometimes I end up hitting flash focus two or three times.

Hey Andy,

Thanks for the reply but I am pretty sure that it has nothing to do with source material. I can have it on just noise/snow on any input with nothing plugged in and the screen is still doing the same thing.

Thanks again!

I'm not sure how many technically oriented viewers here can comment on the HS10 series but I would imagine any CRT RPTV would be subject to the problem your seeing. My guess is that the cost of repairing the problem is not going to be a good investment. The salesman I bought mine from is still around. I'll ask him if has experienced this problem.
