Question about Mitsubishi VS-5043 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Convergence i.c.'s I have a Sony 61" rear projection T.V. model #KP-61s75. I believe I know the problem with it not turning on, the convergence I.C.'s have failed and in turn have blown the fuses, my problem is that Im having problems trying to locate them on my set.I know that it is the B+ supply but dont know where its located and where to follow it down to both I.C.'s and fuses. Can anyone help me out in plain simple directions. Also where can I get these parts besides ordering them from Sony? Thanks in advance!!!!

Re: convergence i.c.'s

The convergence IC's and fuses are not your problem. If the Sony projection set has a bad convergence IC and/or a blown fuse or fuses in the convergence circuit, the set will continue playing but the colors will not line up correctly. If the set will not turn on at all, and has no lights at all on the front of the set, the problem is in your main power supply. If the set tries turning on and then flashes the timer LED on the front of the set, count the number of times the LED flashes, as that is the code for why the set is notworking. I have found that the most common cause of the set not starting is a shorted flyback transformer.

I have a Sony KP-57S510 and need to get to the service menu but dont have the remote. Is there a way around using the remote to access it?

On that model I believe you need an original Sony projection remote or one of the "magic tv remotes" that support the convergence function.

Convergence Settings

Setting the convergence is not a user servicable item. Such adjustments need specialized equipment for proper alignment. Have unit serviced by pro/tech
