Sony KP57WV700 Convergence problem

I have a Sony KP57WV700. The problem I have just started. On the left hand side there is a blue shadow. I try the Auto Convergence but this did not help. I also try the manual Convergence but it does not let me move the blue cross far enough to merge with the white Cross. I?m thinking it?s the Convergence amp IC. Have you ever seen this problem and know how to fix? I have the service manual. I just need to know what to do.I can solder pretty good. I'm just concern about the high voltage.

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.

Picture is distorted from center on my 65

You do have a failure in the convergence circuit of your set. If you are good at soldering you can replace the IC's yourself. They are on the large circuit board on the left side of the set looking from the back, and attached to a large aluminum heat sink. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, I reccomend removing the board and sending it to PTS corp in Indiana. They are pretty reasonable repairing boards, and a lot less than buying a new one.

Oh no it is less expensive to repair the printed circuit boards. You should buy only the IC,s that sony recomends you to buy. They will cost you more then a replacement IC will but they are not all alike even if they have the same numbers on them. Go to and enter your model number and look for the STK IC. Don't forget to get some heatsink compound to install on the back of the new IC's before you reinstall them.. Remember to always double or triple check your work and make sure you have no solder bridges or shorts on the board. If you need a copy of the service manual, post your e-mail addy and I will send you one thru Pando. Pando is available online at for a free download. Pando lets you send large files via e-mail and the Sony manual is large. Good Luck
