Question about Sony KP-46WT500 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Sony 46WT500 Display Issue (Convergence?)

Upon power-on, TV works fine, convergence fine; after about 5 minutes, green beam moves about an inch to the right, bends inwards on the left side [looks like ) ], and there are ripples in the beam around the bottom half. It fixes itself temporarily with the convergence being a slight bit off (can separate green, blue, red beams slightly), then comes back and sticks. Powercycling gets me 5 more minutes of functionality, after which it comes back. Occurs whether set is warm or cold.

Is it an issue with the STKs? Should I order replacement STKs (392-570) and pico fuses, or would the problem be somewhere else? Don't want to invest in the ICs if they're not at fault. Thanks =)

Its likely that you did not find all the resistors that were damaged when the original failure occurred. Now you must re-replace the ICs and locate the other damaged resistors. Check all, including those you just replaced. Use a good ohm meter and be certain that all the resistors are gold band tolerant(5%) and of the exact resistance value and wattage.

Convergence issue


Not sure how service menu will help you other then to do more adjustments such as 3D reform and such. Not real sure, just a long wild guess but the coils on the picture tube could possible be loose enough to change positions when heating up causing picture alignment to change. Might be a cheap service call.

Three colours don't converge


Sounds like your convergence power supply board is bad if it is a ctc or ptk 195 chassis. Located above the main board on the left and dynamic convergence board on right. Has two plugs and held down with quarter inch screws. Most problems on the board is the IC on the metal heat sink which is stk 730-010. whatever you can see the part number on it. Unsolder with solder wick and solder in new. If this doesn't fix a new complete board will do.

Problem with green color


One of your convergence IC's has burned out and needs to be replaced. If the green color is sagging from the top or bottom then the IC that handles the Green Vertical (GV) is bad, and if the green has moved inward on the left or right sides then the IC that handles the Green Horizontal (GH) is bad. Toshiba projection TV's typically use the STK392-110, and it is a good idea to go ahead and replace both IC's with the updated STK392-150's. If you do not have experience replacing convergence IC's then have a qualified tech handle it for you.

Red and green lamps look off center


Intermittant convergence alignment issues are quite common.
Either solder the convergence IC pins or better yet , change out
