Question about Sony KP-61HS30 TV

1 Answer

Ghost PIcture Recently, my Sony KP-61HS30 Projection TV started to flicker in and out of picture. It would have a double image of red and green colors. After warming up it would go back to normal, but now the picture stays in the double image mode. What is causing this and is it worth fixing? Any help with this would be appreciated.

Uniontrip, im afraid you have a problem some other 3 illion other rear tube projection set owners face or will face in the near future. Its called a convergence problem. You see there are Two IC's inside this set that correct the alighnment of the three picture tube alighnment to each other to get a steady straight picture. To fix this problem, both IC's should be replaced together as a whole, even if its only one IC bad now, you can bet your bottom dollar, down the road, the other will go bad as well. If you have any solid state repair experience and know how to unsolder and solder printed circuit boards, this is not really a difficult job to do, as they are two black IC's standing up against a metal heatsink and the lettering on them will start with STK###-###, the # being other numbers. Now since these are solid state sets and they really have noi USER replaceable parts inside them, it is always best for the non experienced to refer to a trained repair technician to do this sort of repair. Most of the time, a repair such as this, should not exceed a couple to a few hundred bucks. Good luck. Please do not forget to rate this thread.

How do i find out if sony kp/57ws510 picture tube is bad


While the set is prone to bad tubes a double or 3d like image is convergence--this model uses two of the STK-392-560 CHIPS for this.

Go into customer menu and call up convergence--if off and will not adjust in any area of the screen the chips are bad.

KP-61HS30 Sony TV turn pink and green text is bowed


Hi,

Check out CONVERGENCE GALLERY . If you see your symptoms you have a problem in your convergence amplifier circuits. Typical Sony Convergence repair requires disassembly for replacement of 2 ICs, sometimes a fuse or 2, then TV is like new.

It is much more complicated than changing batteries on your remote. Many consumers try unsuccessfully to do a convergence repair. I recommend finding someone competent to do it for a reasonable price. Typical repair shop charges may be from $400 to $650.

If you are in the Calgary area, call me. More reasonable rates.
