TV wouldn't stay converged them went black

My TV just started to lose its convergence so I converged it. I had to do this twice in about a 10 min timeframe. It then went completely black. I decided to change the convergence amplifiers, but the TV is still black. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

I have Sony KP-46WT500 Projection TV. For some time it appears convergence went bad. I see multiple images, especially at edges and corners. As many as 3 images Red, Blue and Green. I am an Electronics...

It would be great to assist you in Sony convergence issue.
As you said, for some time TV shows bad convergence in picture that shows its matter of lose/ dry solder joints in D board, specially on convergence out ICs pins that need to be re-solder.
There are 2 big black ICs mounted on aluminum heat sink on D Board of TV, below image shows D Board location in TV.
Resolder pins of these 2 ICs and also check any other dry/ cold solder joints in circuit board. I do not think of IC replacement as problem occurs some time.
Let me know if you have additional question.

52' take about 15 min. to come then only stay on for about 1hr

The convergence ICs overheat , you get bad picture and then the TV detects the fault and go in protection mode, that is the standby state.

That means that the convergence ICs are bad and must be replaced, the job is about $200/$300.

3 blinks means the convergence circuits are shutting the set down. Usually the convergence ICs will take care of the problem, but I would recommend getting the service manual from the following link, as they will provide you free support to help you diagnose why it wont start as usually the convergence ICs wont prevent a set from powering up, unless another component in the convergence circuit has failed.

Tv went black and no sound standby light falsh twice and paused and flashed twice again

This indicates a short happened somewhere in the set, causing the set to go into "safe mode" where it won't let itself turn on. Oftentimes it's the convergence board. Depending on what that will cost you, you may want to just replace the set.
