Question about Sony KP-46WT510 46" Rear Projection HDTV
My kp46wt510 has the red bowing out from the center on the top and bottom, at the far ends it is off by 2-3 inches. Some of the research I have done on this indicates that it is probably the convergence ic's. I was just wondering if because it was only the red, could it be something else?
Thanks for any help.
Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.
Common Symptoms include....
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.
Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.
You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.
If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the bSony kp46wt510 red only convergence bowed on top a - 69189a5.pngt fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix
