Question about Sony KP-65WS500 65" Rear Projection Television

Need to find a place that carries authentic Ic's (STK392-560)

I have been reading up on how to replace them and I think I have a pretty good Idea of how to do it. I have taken one of them out allready. My problem is that I can not find a good place in which to purchase these parts from. The Ic's also have a number on the top right corner, in my case the number is A3G01. Now I seem to locate different places that carry the product but all of them have a different number in the right hand corner, why? I also read to look out for imitations and that if the code in the upper right starts with B then they are imitation parts and not to purchase them as they will fault again. How true is that? The pricing is really confusing me as well as I have seen some from $5.99 all the way up to $35 and they all state that they are authentic Sanyo parts. Any help on were to locate the authentic part will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for you help in advance.

I just replaced mine. I got them from ebay. Get the sanyo originals. The numbers in the upper corner don't matter. Just the STK part. DON'T get cheap ones. Get actual Sanyo originals. Should cost around $15 or so may $18 after shipping. Don't forget to check the Pico fuses too. They are the yellow resistor looking pieces under the IC Heat sinks. They are 3.15 on the IC's and 5a on the power board. I can send pics if you need them. Good luck.

    I've never heard of the 'B' imitation. The ones I ordered didn't have B's on them and they are working flawlessly. So maybe that's something to look out for....?

The BAS/ESP lights pertain to your brake assist and electronic stability systems. One of the more common problems we find is a faulty stop light switch or a steering angle sensor. It would be a good idea to have the fault codes read. The codes would give you a pretty good idea as to what is going on. You could try to initialize the steering angle sensor first. This is normally needed after a dead or weak battery condition. To do this you'll need to start the car and then turn the wheel slowly all the way to the left, pause and then turn slowly all the way to the right, pause and return to center. You may need to do it a couple of times to initialize the sensor. The stop light switches are inexpensive ($20.00) and easily replaced. They're located under the dash at the brake pedal. When you get your new switch you'll see a little release tab on it. You just depress the tab and rotate the switch 90° to remove it. Of course you may have other problems. Reading the fault codes would be the best place to start. Good luck

Give me some idea about first birthday party.

Build a time capsule and invite your guests to add a special note. Choose a pretty tin or box and place it where everyone can easily access it during the party. Provide pens and acid-free paper for the special notes that your baby will read when he or she is older. Provide a list of topic starters to make it easy:
  • My hopes and dreams for you are ...
  • How you've touched my life
  • How I met your parents
  • I love you because ...
Seal the time capsule and store it to be opened on his or her 18th birthday.

Sumsung omnia sgh-i900 'AUTHENTICATION CODE'

If you asked for the settings to be sent from your providers web site they usually require an "Authentication Code" it should tell you what it is in the instructions on the website.
Try and send them again but remember the code :)
If your settings were sent after you called customer services then again you will need to get in touch with them and ask for the code.
I think it changes all the time so guessing may NOT be a good idea.

All you have to do with "Settings" text messages is read them and then delete them. Make sure in your text settings you have "Push Messages" selected.

I hope this helps? :)

What is the best IC replacement for original IC part# STK393-110?

Sayo makes the best IC's, don't just settle for the cheap ones. I have see this ic for as low as $5.00 on the internet.

I would also advise that the convergence IC’s be OEM or better, just because they are cheap does not mean that they are a good deal. I have seen the cheap IC’s fail after a short time, even though they look exactly like the OEM IC’s. I think that the bottom line is that you will get what you pay for when it comes to the parts.

You can try they do carry OEM or better parts.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

My 93 grand am seddenly started making a knocking sound which got louder upon acceleration and it hesitates and wants to dog out when at low - idle speeds, my first thought was it was low on oil however it...

knocking in an engine is never a good thing. I'd check three things: engine bearings, valve lifters and timing chain, all of which can make noise. First thing though, is to put a mechanical gauge in place of the sending unit and check actual engine oil pressure. this will give you a good idea what is going on. low readings can be bearings, normal readings can be the other two items. I could give you a definite idea by listening, but I really can't hear it from here.!(one of the frustrating drawbacks to doing this online) An experienced tech can listen and tell you pretty much what's going on.

IC Convergence replacement

you will no doubt need two STK392-560 ICs and quite possibly two 3.5 amp pico fuses, and its a good idea to get two 4.7 ohm 1/2 watt resistors as well. You can get all the parts you need at the following link and they will provide free installation instructions with pictures and free online tech support while you do the actual repair if you need it. Heres the link.

Hitachi STK392-110 subbed to -150 and currently subs to

best IC for your repair.....Please read some of my solutions for
more details.....Here is the basic idea...when I repair a convergence circuit,my first thought is = are my replacement parts OEM quality or better ? A cheap generic second will just BURN RESISTORS so why would I use them? New,proper IC's
should never burn resistors ! The wattage of resistors is a minor
issue concerning damage from failure of original IC's...the right
choice of IC replacement is of MAJOR importance ! .........T.

Sony KP57WV700 Convergence problem

Problem could be low voltage from power supply as well as the amp ic for the convergence board. Need to take voltage readings from the test points on the board and compare them to the readings you should be getting from the service manual.
