Question about Sony KP-53XBR45 53" Rear Projection Television
Left side of picture, gross misalignment of Blue & Red
Right side of picture alignment OK
Left side picture - convergence controls no effect on left side of Picture
Right side Picture - convergence controls have effect on right side only
why would only the left side be affected ?
Convergence IC replacement?
Hey, found the problem. Your Convergence IC chip went bad. Buy one at Bluestar International Components (bluestar-online.com) - order part number STK392-010 for 6.99. I've read that there are two in the system and replacing them both at same time is a good idea...so, order 2. Now, if you are handy, it will require you to open the back of the TV and solder out the old chip and replace with new. If not, then you might as well call a TV repair person and have them fix. However, every place I've called works on a minimum fee for "large screen TVs" - the cheapest I could find in Atlanta was $399 minimum service fee. So, I'm going to risk the home sodering job .... it's a 10 year old TV and as good as it's been to me, if I screw it up, I feel I've gotten my money out of it. Good luck with your repair. My parts are on order.
