20 Most Recent Sony KP-46WT510 46" Rear Projection HDTV Questions & Answers


U have serious convergence board issues. If the solder connections on board go, that will definitely cause the hassle. If you are handy you can remove the convergence board and reheat every ****** connection on that board. Or if you check out google you can carefully put the board in an oven and use the bake setting for about 8 minutes at a temperature I forget.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Two things come to mind. !. are your cables plugged in right? Yellow->yellow, red->red, white->white? 2. Is the sound on the TV itself turned up?

Its called convergence and this model should use two of the stk-392-560 chips----TVrepair.com sells kits for this based on model number but soldering is involved.
