    I think it's real close to what I'm looking for but not exactly, maybe it's not the same model. Mine is the kp48s65 and buy in 2000 and when I enter service mode and cycle trough the menu I dont see any PJE FDIS. I don't want to damage anything so I made more research about it before changing anything. I find this link:
    http://www.keohi.com/keohiHDTV/experttip...
    But its not working too cause mine is not a HD and I can't find the CXA2150P-1 menu. Also the warning at the top of that page push me to ask more questions:

    Warning: multiple hours of convergence work will lead to crt burn in
    Did it mean I have to make those change really fast and cant take time to fine tune it? Right now, on a 7yr old 48"  with convergence  corrected in the center I see a difference  from 1/8" to 1/4"  between red and blue at each corners. Did I'm looking for something my old tv set can't give anymore? Cause except during nascar races where I got troubles to read drivers stats, I like that screen and don't want to change it for now.
    Thanks for your help.

    I have the same problem.

    I tried to adjust the Convergence setting in the SETUP menu but it doesn't help, the lines matches in the center but off on the sides. The center of the the screen looks good but all around the edges are blurry with multiple colored lines visible.

    I tried to follow the instructions but couldn't get to the service mode. Any suggestion or advice is greatly appreciated.

You will have to go in the service mode. be careful as you could damage the tv if wrong settings are changed. with the tv off push on the remote display 5 vol+ power. now hit the 1 button until you see pje fdis on the upper left. now push the 9 button to enter convergence. you should now have a cursor on the screen. usr the 3 button to switch colors. use the directional pad on remote to move the cursor and the enter button in the center of dir pad to select or deselct a point in the screen. push muting and then enter to save convergence. now restart the tv and all done

Model kp-53xbr4ct made 1998. picture was good. sudden went to center of screen and bowed up and down from center. it hade sound. turned of, now no sound. stand by flashes 6 times. unplugged , plugged back...


the video color distortion with the bowing in the center is called a convergence failure. the 6 blinks indicate a power supply shutdown for high voltage protect. the 14 blinks is just the tv trying to turn back on. you may be having to problems with the convergence and the 6 blinks or it may be related because the convergence amps can cause shutdown if they are shorted. i suggest calling a serviceman per the possible tow different failures. good luck

Dear Doctor,
Check pico fuses PS8001 to PS8006 on D board where you replaced both STKs.
Make sure +22 volt and -22 volts are being supplied from power supply (G board) to D board.

Problem with my colors on Sony KP-46wt510


Sounds like the convergence ICs are giving out its a fairly commom problem with all projection TVs. Your model uses two STK392-560 ICs but I would suggest getting a couple of the 4.7 ohm 1/2 watt convergence resistors as most times one or two of them are open as well.You can get new replacement ICs and resistors at the following link and they provide free instalation instructions with pictures so you can do the repair yourself. Here's the link.
