    I have a PT-53W53G and the same failure to respond to the action or volume/channel buttons when in 'set-up' and 'convergence'...the 3 color lines are centered at the center of the screen, but gradually start to misalign peripherally.

    My TV is also showing signs of the same problems. My picture is marred with a "bowed" red & green color that I cannot get rid off. What does one do to fix the red & green "bowing".

The televion has started showing a blue and yellow douwble vision on the bottom of the screen?


Have you tried going to the service menu?
Do this by holding "MENU" on the TV set while it is on, then pressing "Menu" on the remote. You may have to do this a couple times for the menu to appear.

There should be a option on the appearing screen for Convergence, which has more options the the standard menu. To work this under the "9" setting for convergence, each of the + on the screen is the corresponding button the the TV remote (3 if top right, 5 is center). Use your volume or arrow keys then to move the selected + in the desired direction.

Use the [TV/Video] button to switch which color you are aligning, trying to align Red Green and Blue so they overlap, making white.

Good luck!

I stumbled across a tutorial on fixing the convergence for my Sony KP-46WT510 a while ago, and now I can't find it again! Does anyone know where I can find that tutorial or one similar to it? We've been...


Here is a walk through on how to set your convergence.

A quick and easy way to try and let the TV realign the convergence try this...

1) Turn on the TV and tune to a channel and let it warm up for about a half an hour to let everything settle into its normal operating mode.

2) Press the Flash Focus button on the original TV remote. A cross pattern will show on the screen and the process is complete when the cross turns white and the TV returns to the program you were watching.

3) Do not press any other buttons until this process has completed.

If this does not adjust it enough you can adjust the convergence manually as follows:

1) Press the menu button on the original TV remote.

2) Use the arrow keys on the remote to highlight setup and press + button to select.

3) Use arrow keys to select convergence and press + button to select.

4) A pattern of white crosses appears, with a yellow [ ] around one of the
crosses. Aligned crosses (which do not need adjustment) look white and
have little or no red or blue showing. Crosses that are not aligned show
red or blue shades beyond their edges.

5) Use the arrow keys to move the [ ] to a cross that is not aligned. ***Note: start with crosses in the middle and work outward ****
*** TIP: Set the alignment while about 5 feet from TV for better results ****

6) Press the + button to select the cross and the [ ] will turn red indicating it is ready to adjust the Red convergence.

7) Use the arrow keys to move the red cross on top of the white one or at least as close as you can get it.

8) Once the Red is aligned press the + key again and the [ ] will turn blue. This indicates it is now ready to adjust the blue convergence.

9) Use the arrow keys to move the blue cross on top of the white one or at least as close as you can get it.

10) Once you have aligned the blue cross press the + button again and the [ ] should turn yellow.

11) Repeat steps 5 through 10 until all the crosses are aligned. To exit back to regular programming press the menu button on the remote.

Turn off your TV. Hold down the Channel Down and Volume Down buttons on the front of the TV. Hold for 8 seconds. The set will boot into the service menu.

I just fixed my convergence issue with this, no parts.

Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

Convergence issue


You can go back to factory settings by pressing and holding the ACTION and POWER buttons on the TV while it is on. A CHK screen will appear and when it does release the buttons and then power the set off then on again. This had reset all settings back to factory conditions. You will have to reprogram any channels into memory after this.
