Lady down the street gave me her rear projection TV (sony,  pk 57ws540)  she said something about a capacitor (may have used the wrong term, might be something else).  So I come to the Neo Gurus for help.  (much thanks for my Samsung DLP help before).

 

Here's a snap of what the display is showing.  Need some advice on what might actually be wrong with it.  The magenta appears to be at a curve/warp.  Otherwise in real life (with my own eyes)  it looks nice and bright, almost as nice as my DLP.  It even has DVI input.  I'll turn it into a game display for the kids here.

(don't be deceived by how dim the image looks, it really is nice and crisp/bright)  :D

lol yes I did just that.  at first I thought the 3D was on, but this model doesn't have it :(  still it actually looks pretty wild  (somewhat pops out) but definitely not a 3D feature lol
