Re: SONY KP-61HS30

When one or all the colors are bending severly, then the convergence circuit is not functioning correctly and must be repaired. Only one color bending means just the convergence ICs and all colors bending means convergence ICs and voltage supplies. Convergence issues are the most common problem with rear projection (w/picture tubes) televisions. The cure is replacing the convergence IC's. Sometimes the pico fuses need replaced as well. If you have the experience to use a soldering iron and a basic understanding of electronics, then, you may be able to do this job. If not then call a servicer in your area. Go to the Sony website,, and you can locate one in your area.

Replaced Convergence chips, same problem

This set has pico fuses on convergence board and also on G power board, there should be 2 5 amp pico fuses on power board.

If convergence is bad exactly as before double check the power board fuses and check to see if voltage (it is marked!) is there with power board disconnected from chassis..

I am seeing double on my tv and red any ideas

The convergence is out of alignment, the problem is caused by bad convergence ic's not working properly. The ic's must be replaced and the system calibrated, suggest a professional.

Kp 61HS30 TV Had the tv since 2002. been a great tv. Just recently it started making a noise when you turn it on. Noise fades away after about 10 seconds. Noise kind of sounds like a dvd player trying...

If you locate the audio board, check for dried up electrolytic capacitors and dry joints around the output IC itself.
That should fix your fault.

Sounds like it needs convergence chips. This repair requires test equip. and soldering/desoldering tools. Most repair shops charge between 200.00 and 400.00 to do this repair on your model of tv. Hope I have been some help

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.
