Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
This is a convergence problem. Most likely the STK chips have failed as mentioned by the others. I can tell you that the site that Jean posted will not fix this
problem and could even make things worse. That site pertains to a specific problem that is common in
some Sony sets and should not be used to try to fix any other issue.
Please keep in mind many things can go wrong with TV sets and you should really do a lot of research before attempting any adjustment and or repair. There are high voltages present in some areas and they can reside even when the set is unplugged.

Your TV has a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms.
Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in or warped.
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence or magic focus section.
Try to adjust the convergence.
You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.
If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
Its a fairly easy fix.
You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from www.TvRepairKits.com. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.
