Question about Sony KP-46WT510 46" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

Sony Model KP-46WT510 46" Projection pic droops-bottom looks like

A frown. The three colors trace everything in the picture and picture is sort of a warped view. Stretch on the rt and lt and clearer in the middle. Resetting the convergence doesn't work. They +s won't even move much less line up. Was told it would cost about $300 to $350 to repair - stated my convergence is out... but I am questioning whether it is a horizontal setting. I just don't want to pay out all this money to have the tech say when the problem isn't corrected, that I have additional problems and will need another $300 to correct this. Does anyone know if convergence is the real problem or what else the problem may be. If I am not invading anyone's privacy, how much did it cost to fix it properly.

    Thanks Ronnieh49. This is a great site! It led me to a fix that I can do myself and save $300 or so. They showed me pictures of what my picture might look like and explained that if the convergence doesn't work together with that type of view, it was the convergence. There is a kit for sale that contains chips to replace along with instructions which I have ordered. I look at it this way. I shock people with all the projects that I take on... Building patio covers, pouring my own concrete, installing my own surveillance systems, etc. Now here is another project. Okay if I fail because, if the TV is 5 years old, costing another $300 -350 to repair.. it is likely other chips or problems will occur in the near future as well and I would just have to continue paying out, so, if I destroy it... I'll just buy a new one. I think I can do this if I put my mind time and energy into it. (the cost of the chips with shipping is $71.00). This means the repair services are making $250.00 to $300 an hour. I can't believe how much I spent on 4 years of college to make what I make. This feels like leveling the playing field LOL

Convergence Symptoms:

  • Screen Looks Distorted/3D

I wo9uld agree that the convergence is out and that you should probably go ahead and allow them to repair the set. its not doing you any good just sitting there gathering dust and if they can fix it that cheap you should get it done

Green hue on KP-43Ht20 Sony rear projection tv


Behind the front cover you will see a little plastic box with six phillips headed dials. They only move 180 degrees. The three on the bottom control color richness and the three above them control focus. Turn all three of the bottom ones to the left while the TV is on, then gradually turn them to the right until you get the color you want. NOTE if any one of the three bottom dials are too far up the TV will shut down and will continue to turn off after about 10 seconds after start up until the offending dial is turned back a little.
