I have a Sony KP-57S510 and need to get to the service menu but dont have the remote. Is there a way around using the remote to access it?

On that model I believe you need an original Sony projection remote or one of the "magic tv remotes" that support the convergence function.

With set off and using the original Sony remote:

Buttons on the remote will let you cycle thru the menu to the convergence adjustment--do you know what buttons to use and what they do?

The picture is starting to degrade (KP-57WS510)

It sounds like the Convergence circuit is failing. If that is the case you have two STK-392-560's that need to be replaced on the Deflection Board. A touch up on the convergence alignment may be needed. This is accessible only in the Factory Service Mode. To be sure, you may want to get a professional to come out and evaluate it.
I hope this helps,

Sony KP-57WS510 57 inch rear projection - Rainbow colors and arch

hi, you`ve lost your convergence ic`s, unless your very proficient at solder work I`d advise you call a tech, will require removing 2 large IC`s and possibly a few small support parts, resistors, chemical fuses etc. Every place is a little different but runs approx. 300.00 at my shop, gl, video-tek

Same thing happened to me. I had to get it fixed. They said it was a "tube".

Now, my problem (7 months after getting it fixed) is that it suddenly seems a lot dimmer. I'm not 100% sure, and was wondering if there was some kind of diagnostic to run to find out for sure.
