Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

After replacing the convergence the three colors are still not aligned

I replaced both convergence units and turned on the tv to find the red,green,blue colors still not aligned.... how do I proceed to fixing this problem? A friend told me I need to use the service menu to align, but I do not have the remote controler.
Thanks

    I also replaced the two IC's with no luck. I see that another solution might be to replace the regulator for the convergence. Has anyone else replaced this part with success after replacing the IC's?

    First I had about 6-8 red rainbow lines on my tv screen for so long and it's ok for me until about two months the screen is out of focus meaning the colors are not align. Please help.

There should be a menu button on the tv itself go to picture setting and reset all three colors to the middle. if that doesn't work then you'll need a new regulator for the convergance which is about 25-50 dollars

Hello, My main color were out of alignment, as per instruction on manual. I pressed the button for digital array and proceded to align the blue color, then I proceded to align the red color but I could...


The red convergence IC has failed. There are I believe 3 total convergence IC in your tv. The prefix for all three is STK392-xxx. If you can solder you can try and replace yourself otherwise you need a tv tech. With Hitachi's sometimes some critical resistors will change value as well and have to be replaced with exact equivalents. Sorry wish it was an easy solution..

Our tv just started having a fuzzy image and the auto focus function aborts during the red color alignment. is there a manual alignment I can do to fix it.


What does this fuzzy image look like? Does it have ghosting shadows. Of course it is possible to align red manually from the convergence menu. But first lets confirm that it is indeed a convergence related problem.

Tv out of foucs


These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then: Convergence The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’ images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen. Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the signal format. Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue Centering. When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options: Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen (this is normal). Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the screen, if necessary. Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture. Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture. Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to converge the picture.
