Red Covergance Issue

I have a sony KP-51WS510 projection tv and the red is off. I think it may be the coverganc part #874901908 but can not locate it on my set. I am reluctant to spend another 400 plus dollars on a 5 year old tv. My knowledge is enough to be dagerous but figure what could it hurt to try. Thanks

Solution: 

Your TV has 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 or warped.


Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the 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.

Its a fairly easy fix. 

You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from www.TvRepairKits.com. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. 

Everything you need to fix it yourself.

    Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.



    Problem #1: Convergence Chip 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 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 #1



    You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.





    Problem #2 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.

    Solution #2




    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.

Sony kp 51ws510 upgrade to HD - how to do this


There are inputs on the back of the set. If your tv is Sony 51ws510 then it is capable of HD, but you have to have component or DVI cables to connect the tv to the HD device (HD cable box or DVD player).
<br>

<br>
On your set the component inputs on the back of the tv are video5 and video6 in the middle located in a vertical line (red, green, blue rca video connections with red and white rca audio connections).
<br>

<br>
You also have a DVI input toward at the top of the input panel (white connector with red and white rca audio connectors).

KP-51WS510


If you are facing the front of your TV, the red CRT is on your left. To get access to remove the CRT assembly, you will need to remove the speakers cover and one more wood or plastic cover that is protecting the CRTs.
