Where can you obtain the STK-392-560 IC's for the Sony KP-51WS500 other than Ebay? and where are they located in the TV for replacement?


On EBAY select advanced search, then search by seller----sewsales55 is SUBURBAN ELECTRONICS in Maryland. Chips are located on deflection board, usually to the left as seen from the back.

See attached photo.

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

We hooked our Sony kp43ht20 to dishnetwork. Now the screen is not full screen. How do we make it full screen again? And where is the ratio button to change to 1080?


Is this hooked to a high definition dish network? If so there is a format button on the remote to change the picture size. As far as changing it to 1080 it will only broadcast in what it sees if it is not in high def it can't broadcast in hi def.

BAD PICTURE, DISTORED, MOSTLY ON THE EDGES, BUT THE BLACK LINE ON TOP IN HIGH DEF CHANNELS IS NOT STRIGHT ACROSS, IT BOUGHS DOWN LIKE A "U" SHAPE


Your TV most likely has one or more 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.

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.

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.

It's not a digital hi-def tv, so you either need a cable/sat box..or a converter once hi-def goes in and analog stops.
