Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

I have the same problem. Please advise how to fix it.

My sony kp-51ws510 has started having color issues,the blues and yellows and greens are not lined up and the picture sometimes looks like I have a tracking issue if I were to be playing a VCR. I tried the alignment, but it did not help. I do not have any lights flashing or anything.
Is the board bad? Is it worth trying to fix or just get a new TV?

The picture is is now in pink


If Sony KP-51ws510 it is an common issue with the picture tubes but there may be a simple way to adjust something in the set to correct this--these had problems with the 3 picture tubes where it can go to excessive red, green or blue.

Confirm model and issue and I will assist.

It only requires a screwdriver and the back does not have to be removed in this case.

Sony projection TV colors out of alignment


Solution:
You have a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms. 

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in but stationary.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem. 

>>>Solution<<<< 

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. 

Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com.
They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself.
