Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
My Sony Sony KP-57ws510 has an issue with color alignment. I seem to be having a ghost of reds(mostly but some greens & blues. Tried to use flash focus & manual convergence with no luck. I'm a fairly techincal guy is this something I can fix myself or will I need a repairmen? Also how do I order the parts & how long will it take to get them. Where are they coming from?
You have 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 but stationary.
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 need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors.
Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com.
They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself.
