Question about Sony KP-65WS510 65" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

The picture is distorted. It appears as the picture is being drawn to the center of the screen.

I sent my D-Board to PTS and had it tested and rebuilt. They did find some problems with it but it didn't seem to fix the problem with the TV. The picture is distorted and appears to be drawn towards the center of the screen.

    Sorry the TV is a Sony KP-65WS510 Serial #9707024

    I have same issue... Replaced both ICs 2 times, all pico fuses replaced, and HV wires replaced.... still not working correctly. Im at my wits end, but dont want to scrap an otherwise great TV. Any ideas? No new complete boards are available for my TV either.

    I sent the D board back to PTS. They tested it again. It tested fine so they installed it in the same set they have and could not duplicate the problem.

    I haven't done any convergence adjustments other then the flash focus. When I turned it on one day this is what I got.

This is a convergence problem. This can be either bad solder connections at the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. Try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails, replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heatsink.These should be marked STKxxx.

Keep me posted.

    Based upon the pictures, this convergence is way out. Did you attempt to do any physical adjustments on the CRTs? This unit needs a complete alignment, both mechanical and electronic.

Mitsubishi projection tv ws 55313 video board

Sounds like you got a tech with no experience who just wanted out---most of the boards are not available but most can be sent out to PTS Electronics who will repair/rebuilt them.

The one thing that makes them unrepairable is if glycol has got on them, but even that can be fixed.

Too expensive a set to just walk away===find someone with experience on Mitsubishi who does authorized service on this brand.

Distored picture on top half of the screen

This is one of the sets with bad HYPER boards. If it clears up after a while this is your trouble;I just checked a site in LA--the only way to get the board is to go to PTS electronics and send them the original board for repair--part alone is over 200 and is soldered in--a lot of these sets are having this problem.

I know I am not giving you good news but I am pretty sure this is what is wrong with your set--seen dozens of them.

if you think I helped you in some way--give me a vote here I do this for free. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR NEED MORE HELP contact me by responding to this post.

Picture is distorted from center on my 65

You do have a failure in the convergence circuit of your set. If you are good at soldering you can replace the IC's yourself. They are on the large circuit board on the left side of the set looking from the back, and attached to a large aluminum heat sink. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, I reccomend removing the board and sending it to PTS corp in Indiana. They are pretty reasonable repairing boards, and a lot less than buying a new one.

Distorted picture

You need to re-solder the circuit board that contains the STK convergence modules. They're on the center circuit board attached to an aluminum heat sink that's about 8" long and 6" tall, about dead center in the circuit board. You may be able to recreate the problem (hour glass effect) by gently moving the heat sink (which the modules are connected to). This gives the hour glass effect on the picture and the advanced convergence screen. This is an indication that the modules pins aren't solidly connected (meaning soldered) properly. Remove the circuit board and clean the old solder off & resolder the modules pins to the circuit board reconnected the board and then retest by again pushing on the heat sink. This is a caused by a minimum effort (a.k.a. minimum cost) solder job, probably done in some 3rd world sweat shop. The "factory" job was good enough for 3-4 years but the heat (and these modules do create a lot of heat) and stress created from repeated use eventually takes it's toll, weakens the pin connections and our problem occurs. take the appropriate cautions working around the high voltage of the set & use a non-conduting piece of wood to push the heat sink when doing tests. Best of luck, hope ya fix it.

The T.V. has a problem on the convergence panel Bd. Check each of the resistors near each regulator transistor. You can send the panel to P.T.S. Electronics in Indiana for repair. Call 1-800-844-7871 and they can repair it for you.

Distorted picture

The RCA P52960 uses the PTK195 series chassis. There are 2 main boards at the bottom of the set and above the board on the right (when viewed from behind) is the convergence power supply board. This board usually has a big black IC on it, labeled STK730-010 and bolted to a metal heat sink. Chances are, that IC has burned out and stopped working. Replacing that IC should restore your convergence. If you do not have experience replacing IC's in projection sets, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.

WS-55809 - Video pinched in center, distorted, yellow/blue/red glow

This doesn't sound like a programming issue. I had a very similar problem about 6 months ago and I fixed problem. I had cold solder joint on the video power board. It was the board in the middle. The power supply was to the right. The video board had a driver with a bunch of legs. About 7 solder joint where cold or loose. I solder the board and my mitsu wide screen was fixed. Hope this helps.
