Question about Sony KP-61HS10 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Projection TV cold convergence

My Sony KP-61HS10 is out of convergence when I turn it on but gradually comes into convergence as it warms up, but that takes 15 to 20 minutes of watching it out of focus. If I use the Flash Focus to get it into convergence while it is warming up, then it's out of convergence once its warm. I've had two repairmen out to fix it while it was in warranty and they did nothing. I've lived with the problem rather than take another half day off work to meet with another repairman. Now the warranty has expired. What to do?

First things first... check all the solder joints on your convergence IC's - if they are fine, then the reason the color has gone crazy on you because your convergence IC's have gone bad.
These IC's operate at a very high temp, and usually only last 4-5 years. 
If you remove the back of the set, you will want to look for the BIGGEST heatsink in there, on that heatsink, you will see 2 lage IC's , probably STK392-110, or STK392-120's or something close...regardless - you can go on ebay to order the new ones, but MAKE SURE they are Genuine SANYO IC's and not counterfiet cheapies. the cheap ones may only last 2 months..
You will also need some "Heat transfer paste" - you can pick this up at radio shack.
Once you remove the old IC's, test all the large resistors near them.. pull one side of the resistor out of the board so you can check it out of circuit. they will usually have the value in Ohms, printed directly on the resistor, but you may have to use the resistor color code to find out what value they are....However, usually if there is any damage, the resistor will look like it has been HOT or fried. replace the IC's and any bad resistors, and you should be good to go.
If after replacing the IC's and any defective resistors, the convergence is still bad, make sure to use a multimeter to check ALL fuses on the boards, --- sometimes when the IC's go, they will take out a fuse to the convergence power supply. If you find any bad fuses, replace them accordingly!
Hope that helps!

Tv looks like the edegs curve and is blury


This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

You have loose solder connections on the convergence amps.This is a common problem caused by heat within the unit.If you can solder you can fix it.

Sony KP-61HS10 Rear projection TV blurry /shadows at first start


Sounds like the convergence ic's need to be replaced or resoldered. Sometimes it can be a microfuse if you are lucky. But my question is if you hit the focus button up front does it make it thru the auto convergence? Let me know. Have a good one.

Sony tv KP-61HS10 lenses wont align


This is common in those sets. One of your convergence IC's has stopped working and needs to be replaced. The convergence IC should be replaced and the convergence circuits realigned by someone with experience in Sony projection sets.
