Sony kp51 ws convergence problem

I've tried the flash and convergence manually but the colors are still separate and not even coming close with manual adjust.  is there a way to fix this myself, since it's not worth paying a huge fix it bill. thanks. Jill

    I have the same problem. Tried convergence menu but I cant get blue and red to line up with green completely in all areas. The corners are especially off-centered. I tried opening up the back of the TV, cleaning the tube lenses, and looking for the supposed STK 392 560 but was unable to locate it. This TV has had no problems for over 4 years until just now.

Colors are separated red, yellow and green so picture is blurred


lgray1010,

Try using the Flash Focus to/or manually try to dial in the convergence. If you are unable to focus the TV using its convergence adjustment it's time to call the TV repair guy. Figure on between $250.00 and $400.00 USD.

Stays on for 2 seconds and switches off


The convergence amplifiers need to be replaced.
This set may have one big amplfier chip rather than two.
The chip(s) will be on a big aluminum heatsink.
There may be bad resistors related to these chips, as well as one or two fuses that are open.
I've replace many convergence amplifiers.
If you have good soldering skills and ac test fuses and resistors, you can do the repair yourself. Caution that even with the set unplugged, there could still be dangerous voltages present on some components.
Search this site for specific convergence repair related to your set.

All of a sudden our color has gone crazy on our 54" mitsubishi. They look bleeding and when there are words you see two almost as if it is 3D what do you think?


If you look closely and the 3 colors are separated, the problem is in the convergence circuit. If you can solder, you should be able to fix this yourself. Realize that there are potentially dangerous high voltages inside the set even when unplugged. If you wish to attempt the repair yourself, let me know and I'll provide additional details and instructions.

Sony kp51 ws500 red screen, 8 blinks


The 8 blinks is pointing to a bad flyback transformer and may be common with this set. (We have one too.)


High voltage error -- blinks 8 times • T8005 is faulty. (D board)
