Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Replacing Convergence Amplifiers

I have been reading the problems posted and I seem to be having the same thing. After the TV has been on for 10-15 minutes all the other heat sinks in the back are warm or hot except the heat sinks attached to the amplifiers. Does this mean that both are bad or is there a relay or fuse that has tripped. I have ordered two new Sony convergence amps but do not know if this is the solution. Please advise. Thank you

You might be lucky with just the amps ck for pico fuse's around the heatsink they are usually yellow, look like resistors one might be open

Samsung hcn4226wx/xaa red color out of focus


Ok first of all, the convergence board you are looking for is no longer available from Samsung, probably because of the large failure these boards are having. The only thing to do though would be to replace the convergence amp IC's on the convergence amp board. this will involve locating the convergence amp board, going to http://www.samsungparts.com, entering your model number, without the /xaa prefix. Locating the list of parts for this TV set, and getting the right convergence amp IC's for this TV set. The numbers for the convergence amps are STK-392-040. You will also need to get the service manual for this TV set to perform touchup convergence, as well as to realighn the magic focus into the memory of this TV set. If you have the ability to solder and unsolder, you should have no problem replacing thes convergence amp IC's. But i will have to say this, about 45% of these TV sets do still have a problem after the convergence IC's are replaced. this is usually due to the burnt ground return resustors on the convergence board, so be perpared to know how to read a scematic diagram in the service manual and to trouble shoot the board. There is no simple repair to this problem I'm afraid, with this Samsung TV set. But , if at any time, you feel lost in the repair of this set, do not continue, and call out a pro to assist you in the repair of this TV set. Good Luck with the repair of this TV set.

Toshiba 43HX71 projection TV Convergence problem


Since the set seems to correct itself when "cool", I would first try resoldering the convergence IC area. Quite often, the convergence problems start with poor connections that eventually cause the ICs to fail. Rather than spending money on a repair kit, try the resoldering first. I will verify the kit contents in the meantime.

Please keep us posted on your progress.

I have a hitachi 57 in. big screen projection tv it seems to be acting up the lines seem to be bowed my tv is about 4 years old it seems to be that the blue lines are the worst


Your convergence amplifiers are bad & need replacing. STK392-110. Could also have a couple of resistors open due to the amps going bad.

Hello angy_rodigu,

I posted this in an eariler solution and there are many references to your type of problem on Fixya.com, however it fits in this case, so here it is:

This denotes a convergence problem. Believe it or not it would be cheaper for you to replace the two convergence amplifiers and the biasing resistors. You would not actually be replacing the convergence board since these devices are usually located on the deflection board in most cases. However in answer to your question, the boards are easily removed, depending on your level of patience (lots of cables to move around), I would also advise you to either mark down all of the connection you will remove, or take pictures of the board and its connectors. If you choose to just replace the Amplifiers and the biasing resistors there is a lot of information on this site on how to do so: This will get you started:

1) Unplug the TV and then get a schematic of the TV I use http://www.servicemanuals.net or http://www.manualsparadise.com
2) On the schematic locate the STK392-xxx series IC packs (usually attached to a large heat sink)
3) determine if the STK392s are 110, 120 or 150.
4) if the STK392-xxx's are 110s replace with 110s (forget that upgrade stuff it is a hit or miss game that I don't believe you want to get into), if they are 120s replace with 120s and so on.
5)Now to replace the STKs: remove the module from the TV and unsolder theold STKs along with the bias resistors, and replace them with the newones (be sure to apply heat sink paste to the STKs when attaching them to the heatsink)
6) make sure there are no short circuits form your soldering job.
7) Reinstall the module and then turn on the TV.
8) do manual adjustment and the auto-convergence test and then things should be back to normal.


I hope this helps

AD board is some thing else and in convergence problem only D board will be replaced.
being a TV Tech, I do repair D Board on component level.
If you need D Board part number, let me know.

Now if you think you can do this have at it, if not I would suggest that you have it done by a qualified TV technician.

Possible short or maybe thermal breaker?


1024x768 Normal 0 Won’t start

The power supply has an automatic shutdown circuit that senses a shorted component and excessive current flow.

If you can access the convergence board and remove the plugs one at a time (red, blue or green) for the convergence output, the TV may start up and show a picture with the unplugged color misaligned.

This confirms a short in the convergence output. The convergence IC failure can show up as coloured outlines or power supply shutdown.

If this does not help, then there is some other short circuit in power or deflection circuits. You need a technician to troubleshoot HV or power problems.

Replacing the output amplifiers (located within the Convergence IC's) allows the pictures to line up correctly, and no more color outlines or power shutdown.

This is the most common fault in all makes of rear projection TVs.

Some models of TV require major disassembly and considerable shop/manufacturer's support to repair because of their design that causes other power supply or vertical deflection problems. The poorly designed products require a "bench" repair that can typically cost from $350 t0 $700.

Some TVs are designed for on-site repair and have more reliable circuit design that does not usually cause damage to other parts of the TV when convergence chips fail. The ones that usually allow reliable on-site repair are JVC, Samsung and Hitachi.

It is normal to have some resistors in the circuit burn up or increase in value from the heat (from 2.2 ohms to 5 or 10 ohms). These resistors must be replaced with the right value or the chip may fail again.

This is not a simple repair like changing batteries or a fuse. Reading through the other posts shows many that try and end up with bigger problems.

Your JVC uses STK 392-110 IC's. Misinformed people replace the IC's with other "new and improved" IC's, like STK 392-150. These are devices with different characteristics and require different value resistors in the circuit. Replacing with the STK 392-150 will cause overheating of the resistors and a damaged IC.

When A REAR PROJECTION TV has coloured outlines or a 3D image the Convergence Circuits most likely need attention.

Replacing the output amplifiers (located within the Convergence IC's) allows the pictures to line up correctly, and no more color outlines.
