Sony KP-53HS30 Convergence Issue

I have replaced the IC's on this unit and now I can't seem to be able to do a convergence.  The auto convergence does not work and I have been unable to find anywhere in the menu how to do a manual convergence.  Could someone assist me with the convergence on this model?

I have a similar problem as described as a convergence problem with my Sony KP-53HS30 TV. Can you elaborate further on the solution to repair. Which IC and protector fuses do I replace? Thank you.

Your model uses two STK392-560 Convergence ICs. also there are 6 pico fuses on the D board and two pico fuses on the G board which may need replacement also. The Sony type 1 convergence repair kit from contains the IC's pico fuses and a few resistors plus instructions on CD of how to do the repair.

KP-53HS30 My picture is curved at the top and bottom and the writing is like a shadow of 3's red green and blue

Your TV most likely a convergence failure. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.


You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

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!
