Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Colors out of alignment and screen bending

I have the same problem it seems as a few other people here.

 I have a 4 year old st and all of a sudden I noticed the colors out of sync and the top and lower screen bending.

 I have removed the rear cover and cleaned the lenses and tried to adjust one with the wing nut didn't make any difference.

 Can i fix this myself or do I have to call in help?

 Thanks

 john

The wing nuts you moved are for focusing the lens. more than likely you will need to replace the stk ics in your tv they are located on the signal board with 2 large heat sinks. they should say stk392-??? i do believe it is stk392-510 for sony. all you need to do is replace these and should be good to go

Tv is about 4 years old. Suddenly developed two


Your plasma screen is made up of 1080 verticle lines and now a few of these lines are not working. This is the screen itself and needs replacing.

My picture is warped or bending in the middle


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Color alignment


This sounds like a convergence problem. Would you describe the picture like a 3-D one? If you can solder, you should be able to fix this yourself. Let me know if you wish to attempt the repair and I'll supply additional details and instructions.

All color guns out of alignment


Needs convergence amps replaced. Sometimes resistors burn and need to be replaced. This repair requires soldering/desoldering equip. and a trained eye, but usually can be done for 175.00-325.00 at a reputable service center. Good luck, Russmann.

Harker, the convergence circuit has failed, IC`s and possibly a couple of support resistors, that`s a good set, call around to your local shops and get a few estimates, waay better set than the new dlp and lcd sets in my opinion, any questions? e-mail me back, Happy Holidays, BMW Rider

Image is totally distorted


Did you also replace the bias resistors required when you converted from STK392-110 to the higher STK392-xxx modules? If I wer you I would go back to the orginal modules only new ones. Then I would also get a schematic to test the voltage levels on the chips to make sure they are the same as on the schematic.
