The convergence amps are the big STK's*** located possibly on the G-board in the sony. It is very difficult if you are not familiar with components and soldering, You can buy them at MCMelectronics,, Tritronics,, etc. Diagrams are online at on the rightside of screen. Places like or you can search the web. Hope this helps!

Double image ( Ghost image )on Sony KP-65WS500

Replacing the Convergence ICs should fix the problem. They are located on the Deflection board. Sony has used a couple of different ones over the years I think they are STK-392-120's but please do not hold me to it.
Hope this helps,

Red ghosts

red convergence went haywire... you need to relace I'm thinking two convergence ICs mounted on heatsink on convergence panel. replace both for usually they both blow replace any burnt resitors too, and hardest of all now you need to reconverge the whole thing.....which is a fine art.....u might be able to do it with the remote ...but u need a manual to go throught the steps really ..but not me i do em in my sleep. take it to shop unless your technical.
