Its not the bulbs that u adjust. its the lenses ussually theres an access panel on the back when u open that up you should see three or four lenses. if you have somebody looking at the screen while u adjust it u might be able to get it closer but to have it dead on it might be best to call a proffessional. but trying it yourself first couldnt hurt anything,

The picture has become blurry and the colors are seperating. Is there an easy fix to the problem? Replacement bulb?

It is an easy problem to repair and it should not be too much in cost, So call up your local Tv repair guy and have him do a diagnostic.
He will tell you whats wrong and how to fix it and what cost

Pink and green colors seperated images rounded off

If colors are skewed and will not adjust in the customer menu---you have a CONVERGENCE circuit problem.

This model (KP-51WS500) uses two of the STK-392-560 convergence IC chips. I just got home from fixing a similar model with the same problem.

Parts cost on Ebay for the chips and such is going to be less than 30 dollars total. Shops are going to get 300 or more for this kind of repair---and some will not do it in your home---the repair takes about an hour--I have done hundreds of them here in people's homes.

If you have questions or need advice, reply to this posting and I will try to help.

Good Day, richless;
It sounds like your TV's convergence circuit has failed. This is not an easy repair for a novice, so I would recommend that you call an Authorized Service Center and have them give you an estimate.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

Color alignment:

Replaced one fuse, and the stk392-020 ic. The stk392-020 was not an original Toshiba part but the alignment is perfect and I didn't even have to make any adjustments.

Picture shows red/green/blue separatly and the images are curving at the sides

Greetings Mhsfl,

I also have a Mitsubishi rear projection and was having the same issues. You need to adjust your convergence. It is found in the setup menus on the television. What will happen is a big grid will come up and you will adjust the colors seperately until it looks like all white lines. It is something that a novice can do. My husband has actually become quite addicted to fixing the convergence on our television! It will need to be done periodically and particularly if you move your unit.

I hope this helps!

Thank you,

Go Ahead. Use Us.

It is not as simple to replace as a bulb. This is a picture tube, and for a novice, no play it safe and have a tech have a look first. Just because the picture tube does not light up, does not mean the tube is bad. There could be several things in the solid state circuits that could cause this problem. Good Luck
