Re: convergence

In some cases tv's with auto adjust on convergence that will not keep, some times the issue is you setting will not save. This turns the issue into something different besides convergence. One thing you can do is reflash the proper software on the unit, even if it already has the right software on it. Otherwise you may have to send it back for repair, shouldn't be to much 150 or less. Most of which is labor and jacked up prices. The parts are not to bad 10-40 dollars, good luck.....

It wont stop shutting off!

You can try the suggestion on the site I posted below. This site addresses a specific problem that tends to be fairly common in some Sony sets. Only try this if your sure that the problem your having is the same problem described in the site. Look at the picture of the screen on the site and see if that looks like your screen. The set on the site is red but it could be Green or Blue also. If you set won't stay on, you may have to turn the appropriate knob down slightly in order to get the set to stay on. Although he mentions this will fix a convergence problem, the fix described has nothing to do with convergence. The symptoms you are describing do not sound like a convergence issue. I am however a little concerned about the smell. Another thing is, after the set shuts off the Led will blink a code. For example it may flash 8 times then pause and repeat. You can Google this to find out more info on the problem. Many things can go wrong with TV's, I recommend you do as much research as you can to narrow it down. Good luck, here is the site.

VS-60111 turns off on its own after few hours

Did you repair the two leads? Ao check near the Convergence ICs for an open resistor or two, although that shouldn't effect your audio. Yu most likely have a low voltage regulator or bad capacitor. You will probably need the service manual to actually track it down. I will post a link where you can ge one for 12.99 and the include free unlimited support. They will also email it instantly to you if you return to the site and send them an email requesting they email it to you. You sound like you could fx it with the service manual and some guidance. Here is the link.
