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

1 Answer

Red shadowing... woke up this morning and saw that there is now a red shadowing on my screen of my kp-51ws500. Had no issues until today. Lost the manual and would appreciate it if you could tell me the steps to get to the screen which will allow me to adjust the convergence. Thanks! Roland

Colors on the left side of the screen are shadowed with duplicate

Your set has a convergence problem which is a common issue.

Take a look at this solution posted earlier on Fixya. It worked for me.

KP-51WS500 when on it blinked 4 times and has redscreen

Typically if you have a all Red Screen it is caused by either the Red CRT being shorted or The Red CRT Driver Board being bad.

Red horizontal curvy lines

You need to turn the voltage on the red tube down slightly, also you would need to adjust focus to compensate for the lower voltage to the red tube. On the left and right bottom side of speaker cover are two round covers, take them out and there are 2 1/4" hex screws take them out carefully take cover off, there is another service cover same hex screws remove. You will see the focus block on the right side, tubes are labled on block. 2 knobs for each tube. Make voltage adjustments while tv is on a black screen, then for focus, turn color all the way off in the menu, and adjust focus until it looks right in black and white. These adjustments should only be very small; if alot of adjustment is needed, you may have other issues.

This 3-D problem is because to failure of convergence out ICs failure in TV and convergence ICs will be replaced.
If TV is Sony KP-51WS500 then check D board for STK392-560 and replace 02 ICs.

Faint red curved lines on Sony KP 51ws500.Converged = no work???

Hi There!
This sounds like a typical problem related to a older CRT.
If you remove the front cover of the tv, you can then remove a wood panel. Behind this panel you will see a block (high voltage splitter) it will have 6 "knobs" on it, 3 will say focus, 3 will say screen.
They will also be labeled R - G - B  
Put the tv on a blank input so you can see the lines clearly on a black screen  - Find the knob for red, and SLIGHTLY turn it down until the red lines disappear.

the tv needs to have a convergence done on it to realign the picture..the colors have to be set a certain way or it will show shadows and it will only get worse
