Question about Sony FD Trinitron KV-32HV600 32" TV

1 Answer

My convergence is off on my Sony KV-32HV600

On a black screen, I hit my Menu button and I can see that the red is about 1/8" off to left, and the blue is about 1/8" to the right. I've tried accessing the service menus and it is very confusing. Please advise on how to fix this problem

This is caused by a HOZ IC in the unit that is faulty or has gone bad on the convergance board you would need to replace only the IC on this. You would need to contact sony for the part as aftermarket would be hard to find. Trust me I fix these puppies. I do bid you good luck with your TV its worth the fix you be glad you did take it in or fix it yourself if you are a expert at it if not I would leave it to the experts to fix and they would provide you with a warrenty on the unit!


Thanks

Is there a code number that needs to be entered to bring the convergence pattern or menu on screen.


From a user standpoint you would follow these steps to bring up your Convergence menu:

1) Press your MENU button.

2) Press the Right Cursor Button to enter the Picture menu.

3) Press the Down Cursor Button until you highlight the MANUAL CONVERGENCE choice on the menu.

4) You will then see the following choices on the right hand side of the menu: Convergence Red, Convergence Blue, Multipoint Red, Multi Blue, Save Multipoint.

5) Once you choose either the Red or Blue choices you will get a crosshair in the middle of your screen. You will then use either your Up, Down, Left, or Right Cursor buttons to get the two images to line up correctly. If you still have multi images on your screen in either Red or Blue you would then have to adjust the Multipoint choice for that color.

Black screen in 3d view


Projection TV2_bing.gif sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV 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, Samsung2_bing.gif, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith2_bing.gif, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D2_bing.gif
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on - TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

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

Note: If you TV has as flash2_bing.gif focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

I have a Philips 51PW9303 Rear Projection TV that had blue shadows around the sides of the screen and now has a green and red bowed line at bottom. Does I need a convergence board to solve this?


If the following doesn't work the tubes could be at the end of life:
Adjusting convergence:
Note: For best results, the Projection TV needs to be turned on for 15 minutes or longer before adjusting the picture tubes (convergence).

To adjust the convergence of the picture tubes:
  1. Press the 'MENU/SELECT' button on the remote.
  2. Press CURSOR RIGHT to enter the PICTURE menu.
  3. Use CURSOR DOWN and RIGHT to select and enter MANUAL CONVERGE.
  4. Press CURSOR RIGHT to select CONVERGE RED or press CURSOR RIGHT and DOWN to select CONVERGE BLUE.
  5. A crosshair will be shown on the screen. If there is any red or blue fringe around the crosshair, use CURSOR RIGHT, LEFT, UP, DOWN to try and merge the fringe colors with the crosshair.
  6. Press the 'MENU/SELECT' button to return to MANUAL CONVERGE menu.
  7. Press the 'EXIT' button to exit the menu.
If you are satisfied with the convergence you may stop now. Otherwise, you can continue and adjust the convergence more using mult ipoint convergence.
To Adjust multipoint convergence:
  1. Press the 'MENU/SELECT' button on the remote.
  2. Use CURSOR RIGHT to enter the PICTURE menu.
  3. Use CURSOR DOWN and RIGHT on the cursor ring to select and enter MANUAL CONVERGE.
  4. Press CURSOR RIGHT and DOWN on the cursor ring to select MULTIPOINT RED or MULTIPOINT BLUE.
  5. A grid of crosshairs will appear on the screen. If there is any red or blue fringe around any of them, press CURSOR RIGHT to enter NAVIGATE mode.
  6. Use CURSOR RIGHT, LEFT, UP, and DOWN to move to a crosshair that has a color outline.
  7. Press the 'EXIT' button to enter ADJUST mode.
  8. Use CURSOR RIGHT, LEFT, UP, and DOWN to merge the color with the crosshair.
  9. Press the 'STATUS/EXIT' button to return to NAVIGATE mode. Repeat as necessary.
  10. Press the 'MENU' button to return to the MANUAL CONVERGE menu.
  11. Press CURSOR DOWN until SAVE MULTIPOINT is selected.
  12. Press CURSOR RIGHT to save the multipoint settings.
  13. Press the 'EXIT' button to exit the menu.

How to get in convergence set up mode sony tv kp51ws500


OTHER THAN TRYING IT IN THE CUSTOMER MENU there is the tech menu.

With the set off on the original Sony remote control press:

Display, 5, Vol up and power.

The set should come on with a lot of words and numbers on screen.

With 1 OR 4 you navigate until you see PJE on the screen.

9, and then 6 on the remote will bring up the convergence grid. You will see a grid with a blinking colored cursor--if it is green do nothing--3 will allow you to change to red or blue or green. IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO CHANGE THE SET TO A UNUSED VIDEO INPUT TO MAKE IT EASY TO SEE WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

Select red with the three button and navigate with the 1 or 4 buttons--enter button will allow you to adjust. enter again will allow you to navigate with the 1 or 4 buttons-- you want to get to the middle of the screen and then with 1 or 4 buttons navigate from the center around the screen.

You will find 1 moves adjustment in one direction and 4 in another. Go all around and adjust red first. Then repeat with blue.

YOU ACTUALLY ADJUST USING THE CURSOR BUTTONS--WHEEL NEAR THE MIDDLE OF THE REMOTE--YOU WILL SEE THE CHANGES AS YOU DO THIS.

When you are done hit Muting and then enter to save adjustments.

NOTE: some of these sets require the convergence be adjusted in the 4X3 which will also adjust in the FULL--if the set has the ZOOM AND WIDE zoom you will have to repeat the adjustment again in one of those modes to adjust Zoom and Wide Zoom.

Also if you have HD connection you may have to adjust it there also--many of these sets require it to be adjusted 3 times in the three modes.

IF convergence will not adjust in any one of the picture modes you have a convergence circuit problem and need to replace the convergence chips etc.

When you are done be sure to hit Muting and then Enter to save adjustments you have made. The word Write will appear on screen in green when you press muting and then in green when you press enter--it means you have saved the adjustments.

NEVER TRY TO ADJUST GREEN!

If you have questions or need help let me know.

Sony KV-32HV600 won't turn on.


If the blink repeats the same number of times (up to 6 or 7) between pauses, the number of blinks is a trouble code. Determine that number (count), then search this site and the web for your TV model and that code. Also look on the rear of the set for the chassis number, and search on that keyword.

it sounds like a convergence adjustment problem. If you hava book on the tv still read it, and it will tell you what to do, other wise, look for a convergence button on the front of your tv, and take the remote and push menu to bring up setup, and go convergence adjustment click it and hit the conv. button on the front of the screen. there should be to lines going vertical and horizontal, these are the limes you adjust with your remote, you have to adjust the red and blue, the tv should blink to let you know which color you are on. when you have them lined up right the line will be perfectly white. hope this helps
