Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem as shown below. Doing so will only make things worse. If however your TV does not have a convergence problem those tips may help.

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.

If you can't move them in all directions your conHow can I go to convergence adjustment mode of - 2c07611.pngips 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 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.

I'm sorry to say that Jean is off on this one. This sounds like a convergence issue and cannot be fixed with these knobs. If you set looks like the pictures shown most likely the STK chips (possibly other components) are blown as explained in Ecullier2012's posting. If the convergence went bad suddenly and or you cannot fix it with the convergence adjustments on the set, most likely that is the problem. If it moved slightly out over time then most likely you will be able to fix it through the convergence menu on the set. Many things can go wrong with TV sets and you should really do a lot of research before attempting any adjustment and or repair. There are high voltages present and they can reside even when the set is unplugged. I also have a posting about the STK chips in another section that may help explain things.

Convergence adjusting


Using the original remote go into your convergence menu and try to adjust red and blue. if they will not adjust you will need to get a convergence repair kit from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com to fix it. Note that some sony models will not have a convergence menu...if that is the case you need to go into service mode. You can get that info from the same site above - its on their tips page.

Sony kp-53xbr45 please let me know step by step how to enter convergence service thank you


Hello,

To enter into the convergence service of your sony, follow the steps below;
  1. Press "Menu" on the remote control. Use the up- or down-arrow button to move the cursor to "Setup" and then press "Return."
  2. Use the up or down arrow to move the cursor to "Convergence" and press "Return." This will bring up the convergence-adjustment screen.
  3. Press the up or down arrow to move the cursor to the line you want to adjust (either vertical or horizontal for red and blue) and press "Return."
  4. Press the up or down arrow again to move that line until it converges with the center green line and press "Return."
  5. Repeat to adjust the other lines until all three lines converge and are seen as a white cross.
  6. Press "Menu" to exit the convergence menu and return to the original screen.
You can as well follow these steps;
  1. Press the "Power" button to turn your TV on.
  2. Wait at least 30 minutes before you adjust the convergence in your television. This allows your TV ample time to warm up before you make the adjustment.
  3. Turn your TV to a cable channel or to an antenna channel with a picture that you can see. A music channel with a static shot of music notes isn't the kind of picture you need. Instead, look for a picture like what you would see on a movie, sitcom or drama.
  4. Press the "Flash Focus" button located in the front panel on your TV. You may need to open a hidden compartment on the front of your TV to access this button. The convergence will repair itself automatically after you hit this button. It may take several minutes.
Any of the two processes are detailed steps on how to enter your convergence service.

Take care

Need the code for the remote for a sony kp-51ws510


You need a Sony original remote--even a Sony universal will not access the menu.

With the Sony remote (Almost any Sony projection remote will work) you can adjust in the customer mode or enter the TECH menu for fine adjustment all over the screen.

If you get one and do not know how to enter the TECH menu--let me know and I will tell you how to do it and adjust there.

If this has helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

CONVERGENCE IC ADJUSTMENT


My KP-46WT510 picture is out of alignment. There is no conversion of the red, blue and green pictures on the screen. They're off by about an inch of each other.
Some tech told me that it was the power control that was bad. I can see the picture, just very blurred.
Is he right? The tv was not move at all before this started happening.

Sony KP-51HW40 Convergence issue


Can you adjust the convergence by the convergence menu without going through the service menu? The settings through the convergence menu should save automatically. Have you replaced the convergence ICs? If so the settings should save, if not the D board will need to be replaced or at the very least rebuilt. Let me know if you need further assistance with this issue.

Sony kp-43ht20 geometry issue.


You may be setting your self up for a major headache. Trying to set convergence requires a professional pattern generator. There are also multiple phase adjustments to prevent linear drift of settings. Please spare yourself, take unit to a professional service!

Convergence problem


Sounds like bad solder connections on the convergence circuit board. Better get it looked at before the damage becomes permanent.
