Question about Sony KP-65WV600 65" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I have a Sony Rear Projection TV (model number escapes me) and the colors are 'shifting' to make what appears to be a 3D effect. I read the articles about a convergence problem, but the Flash Focus DOES correct the problem - it is just that after awhile of watching, the colors will slip again. I run the Flash Focus, which again works, but doesn't appear to hold for as long as the TV is on.
Your TV most likely a convergence failure. ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
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.
You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.
