A good repairman should have done all these adjustments for you. if at all possible you should call him back and have this professionally done, you paid for the service no doubt. If you cannot get him to do this then you will need the original remote and enter the service menu to make the nessesary adjustments. Did he replace all the tubes? or just one or 2? if so what colors did he replace?

MY SONY KP-51WS510 LOOKS LIKE 3D AND THE IMAGE IS CURVED


The flyback as you discovered does not effect convergence. The convergence repair is different. This video should explain it further.

Sony KP-65WV600 10/26/2002 rear projection TV. Blue gun went out and glows orange. Convergence chip is out (can not adjust convergence). Sony refuses to help saying my model is not covered by any offer....


The convergence repair if done is possible do it your self; If you have also a bad blue picture tube or some issue related to the tubes then the set is beyond any reasonable repair.,

not always easy to replace a set that cost in its day a lot of money but it is now about 9 years old and that is about average to this type of set.

Confrosting lines on my Problems with Sony


Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. The power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

What you will need to do is convergence. You can get a repair kit from TvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement parts,step by step instructions, support, etc.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Need convergence tubes price and where to order


Hi, set doesn`t have "convergence tubes", it has 3 picture tubes and it has 2 convergence IC`s post the symptom you see on the screen or tell us where you got the term "convergence tubes". If it needs all 3 tubes the set is not cost effective to repair as they are veeery expensive to buy and you WILL need an experienced tech to install them and then align them, convergence repair here in central florida runs about 275.00, price for your area may differ greatly, send us more info if this doesn`t help, video-tek

Sony kp-57hw40 convergence line up steps


Jake, this is something that I can help you with. First you are going to have to get a pattern generator and get a crosshatch on the screen. I bought a test DVD that has all the patterns that can be used. You will have to do a static convergence with the convergence rings on the CRT's. Be carefull, because Sony puts two different types of rings on the neck of the CRT. One is for static convergence and the other is for the focus of the lens. Once you have that done you can get into the service menu and tweak the convergence using the internal generator in the convergence menu. Please let me know if this helps, and if you need any further help with the menus.

Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue 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.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.
