Go to front of TV remove front bottom there you will find the focus and screen Block it has 3 on top and 3 on bottom This is to adjust screen drives and focus for each Tube R/G/B. also in front of ICs check your pico fuses they will look like resistors will be Green or yellow make sure they are good if opened they can cause your problem as well.

Sony post convergence repair problem


The flash focus is a joke in these sets--only adjusts a limited area and can make the set look worse--like having a cigarette lighter in your car--not really needed.

Flash focus rarely if chips have been replaced will SAVE the adjustments.

The set stores the convergence adjustments on a board inside--best way to adjust is with the Sony remote to enter the tech menu and adjust there--when done one of the numbered buttons is pressed and Save? in red appears--press same button again and it goes to green which means adjustments have been stored in the set.

The tech menu will also always give a much better adjustment of the entire sceen.

Misaligned convergence on sony kp-65ws510


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 projection 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.

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. 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
