Question about Sony KP-53HS30 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I'm sorry to say that Jean is off on this one. This is a convergence issue and cannot be fixed with these knobs. The pictures shown look more like a problem with the STK chips (convergence chips). If the convergence went out this 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 have a posting about the STK chips that may help explain things better.

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.
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
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 yoDistorted image & colors: Hi there I have a sony - 2c07611.pngnce 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 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.
