You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together convergence repair kits for most models.

The kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, etc. Everything you will need to do the repair yourself.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

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

If you have a CONVERGENCE problem and it will not adjust---the two STK-392-150 Chips this set uses need to both be replaced and the set adjusted with the original remote control.

You can, if you are able to do the repair, buy a pair of chips for less than 14 dollars plus shipping on Ebay.

If you cannot do the repair--shop around your area--most shops are going to charge 300 or more for this kind of repair.

When you consider the cost of the parts--if you can do it or know someone who can--you can save the set and a lot of money--This repair can easily be done right in your home in about 1 hour--I know as I have done hundreds of them---did two today.

The chips (with the back off of the set) should be on two metal heat sinks on the board on the far left---they will be facing the front of the set.

All that is required to get at them is to remove all the plugs on that board and the screws that hold it in and tilt it up so the bottom of the board is in view---you unsolder both chips (about 18 pins each) and remove the 2 screws that hold each to a heat sink.

With 2 new chips you put heat sink compound on the back of each--it is a white grease to move heat quickly from the chip to the metal, and solder both chips in----put the board back down and all the plugs back(I usually mark all of them so I know where they go) and turn the set on and see what you have...

Most of the time this repairs the set--go into the customer menu and adjust the convergence and you are ready for another 5-8 years of life---this is the normal lifespan of these chips.

If you need assistance or have questions let me know--I am here to help people.

Projection TV 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.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • 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. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

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. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

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 flash 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 fix

Its most likely a convergence issue which will cost between 150-400.00 depecnding on the shop. Or if you can solder doing it yourself is the way to go. Installing a convergence repair kit for that model is recommended. You can get kits with repair instructions from www.tvrepairworld.com

My sony KP-46WT510 has double images and the edges are red and green


Try pressing the Flash Focus button on the TV to adjust the convergence of the TV.
Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.

Double image ( Ghost image )on Sony KP-65WS500


Replacing the Convergence ICs should fix the problem. They are located on the Deflection board. Sony has used a couple of different ones over the years I think they are STK-392-120's but please do not hold me to it.
Hope this helps,

65 inch sony problems


I'm goig to guess that the images are different colors too. This would be a convergence problem. If you feel confortable changing a couple of ICs and soldering the pins, the cost should be between $25-$50 for parts. If you want to go ahead with this yourself, update this and I'll provide more details.
