Question about Sony KP-53XBR45 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Top left and bottom right images/letters distorted.

I am having some trouble with my Sony KP-53XBR45 projection TV.

The screen has top left with a red tint and the white captions/letter/characters in that quarter seem to be broken into blue and red with the red as slanted.
The same caption problems appear in the bottom right quadrant.

For example - The name of the channel(eg ABC) is broken into blue and red and red one is slanted.

I hope this makes sense.

This started just yesterday. Please help!!

I can fix it for $325? 213 880 1795
It was a convergence problem, both chips goes bad bad also look for bad resistors around the circuit? This is not an easy repair for non skilled person? You need to realign it after replacing the chips? Don't be cheap pay someone to do it right?

Projection sets have two very common problems outlined below.

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. The TV can also shut down when the convergence starts to fail.

Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith, RCA and others.

You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from TV Repair Kits using the link at the end of this article.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Focus problem, see Green and Red misalignment;


this could be caused by the loss of the power to the converge circuit or the failure of the converge chips-stk-xxx-xxx if the problem pops in and out it's a connection problem.
