Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television
Is there another way to adjust the convergace
You can try to adjust in service mode but it sounds like you did not do this repair correctly. I would suggest getting instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

SOURCE: service mode for convergence
You enter the service menu by using the remote. Press DISPLAY, 5, VOL+, POWER
in rapid succession. Once the screen appears, you should notice green letters
and numbers at the top of the screen. Your remote acts as a navigation tool to
allow you to select and change values. Keys 1 and 4 change the Item, keys 2 and 5 change the Category, and keys 3
and 6 change the Value. MUTE enters the write function, and ENTER executes it.
Power exits the service menu. Keep in mind that while in the convergence mode,
the keys have different functions, which we'll get to in due time. The service
manual will also have this information.

Hi. there is a malfunction that has occurred within the convergence chip that is located on the PC board(demod). this is a Hybrid chip that controls the calibrations of the RGB streams. If this chip becomes unstable, it will not allow proper calibrations.
Replacing this failed chip will fix this issue.
The actual sony chip is not available at this time but, there is a compatible chip that will work with your set. i will post a link to the affected part below.
