There is a secret service menu to converge the Sony KP53HS30.

Caution: Be careful, there are many settings that can be tampered with. Some may be hard to undo.

Procedure: (use the remote control for these steps unless noted)

1. Turn TV off with System Off (under flap on remote)

2. Press: Display, 5, Volume +, then Power. If successful, service text will appear on the screen.

3. Use 2 & 5 to select the PJE Category.

4. Press 9 to get to fine convergence adjusting.

5. Press 6 several times to get the convergence screen of choice. I like the grid.

6. Use the remote's arrow keys (joystick), move the brackets around until you have found the area to adjust. Press the center of the joystick to change the bracket from white to a color. Use the joystick to adjust the color. Press 3 to change color to adjust. When done, press center of joystick again.

Note: Try to keep the grid even and squared up.

7. Repeat steps 5 and/or 6 for all parts of the screen that need it.

8. Once done, you need to save your settings. Press: Mute, Enter. Then on the TV, press "Flash Focus"

9. Turn off power.

TV is ready to use.

TV appears blurry, and when using the remote to solve remote and buttons on tv are not allowing to re adjust colors for a clear pictue


It sounds like you're describing a problem with the convergence being out of adjustment. You have lost the power supply to the convergence amplifier, therefore the microprocessor isn't detecting that the circuit exists, and isn't offering it as a choice in the adjustment menu. There can be LOTS of reasons why that is, but none of them are one that you can repair sucessfully or safely. The problem is definately a power supply related issue that you should have a professional repair.
Good luck.

My philips 46PP8621 is cloudy and any white in the picture is so bright, i need shades. I cant fix it. It is unwatchable. Please help!!!!


You have one of two problems. Sometimes both.

Problem #1) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Problem #2)

Your TV may have a convergence failure. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem



  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

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.

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.

  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.

You need to change the convergence ic's IC7001,IC7002 = part# STK392-110. Also check for any burnt or discolored resistors nearby. (about a $350 - $500 repair)
