My Sony KP-53HS30 rear projection tv has horizontal squiggly lines in the center of the picture.


What is the issue you are trying to adjust? Convergence or width or what? The set has an adjustment menu that is hidden but can be called up with the remote used in a certain way.

Sony kp-53xbr45 please let me know step by step how to enter convergence service thank you


Hello,

To enter into the convergence service of your sony, follow the steps below;
  1. Press "Menu" on the remote control. Use the up- or down-arrow button to move the cursor to "Setup" and then press "Return."
  2. Use the up or down arrow to move the cursor to "Convergence" and press "Return." This will bring up the convergence-adjustment screen.
  3. Press the up or down arrow to move the cursor to the line you want to adjust (either vertical or horizontal for red and blue) and press "Return."
  4. Press the up or down arrow again to move that line until it converges with the center green line and press "Return."
  5. Repeat to adjust the other lines until all three lines converge and are seen as a white cross.
  6. Press "Menu" to exit the convergence menu and return to the original screen.
You can as well follow these steps;
  1. Press the "Power" button to turn your TV on.
  2. Wait at least 30 minutes before you adjust the convergence in your television. This allows your TV ample time to warm up before you make the adjustment.
  3. Turn your TV to a cable channel or to an antenna channel with a picture that you can see. A music channel with a static shot of music notes isn't the kind of picture you need. Instead, look for a picture like what you would see on a movie, sitcom or drama.
  4. Press the "Flash Focus" button located in the front panel on your TV. You may need to open a hidden compartment on the front of your TV to access this button. The convergence will repair itself automatically after you hit this button. It may take several minutes.
Any of the two processes are detailed steps on how to enter your convergence service.

Take care

How Do I Manually Adjust The Convergence On My Sony TV Without The Remote


Hi! with regards to your inquiry if it is possible for you to adjust the convergence of sony without the remote,. i think it is not possible.

Poor green convergence


IF convergence is bad---with the original remote go into the customer menu and select convergence--if it is skewed or bad and will not adjust you have a bad convergence IC.

This model (KP53HS30) uses two of the STK-392-560 convergence chips---Both, along with any bad protection resistors around them need to be replaced and the set adjusted with the remote.

You can buy a pair of the chips on Ebay for less than 14 dollars---

Clearly I do not know if you can do this repair but if you can you can save the set and a lot of money.

If you cannot do the repair shop around your area--most shops get 300 or more for this type of repair--I do lots of them here for 200-250 right in people's homes.

The repair involves getting at the chips and unsoldering them---each has about 18 pins.

Let me know if you want general instructions on how to do this or if YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR WANT ADVICE--REPLY TO THIS POST

I am here to help people.

Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • 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.

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.

2c07611.pngSolution #1

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

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.

Convergence


Touch-up Convergence adjustments Enter the Digital Convergence Mode (DCM) by entering 0-6-2-5-9-7-(Status or Index) on the Remote control. The following menu will appear: Select an active channel or Aux Input. A signal must be applied to the set when performing convergence. If any Customer Adjustments need to be made, the Menu button can be used to toggle between the Customer Menu and DCM. The MPOSD ADJUST is used to center the Customer Convergence grid. A highlighted cross will appear along with the Convergence alignment grid. The highlighted cross should be centered onto the center of the Convergence grid. To perform a Touch Up Convergence, highlight SELECTION and press the right cursor button on the remote. The following menu will appear: Selections STORE, RESTORE FACTORY, and RESTORE DEFAULT are not shown after selecting SELECTION. Press the cursor down button on the Remote for these selections to appear. RESTORE FACTORY loads Convergence defaults from the Factory Loaded section of the Convergence Memory IC. RESTORE DEFAULT loads Convergence defaults from the sets software. To perform a Touch-up Convergence: 1. Enter the Convergence Mode and select RED TO GREEN or BLUE TO GREEN. Do not select GREEN (Green Geometry) without placing a Template over the screen. To perform Green Geometry, refer to the Complete in-depth Convergence. 2. Use the Cursor buttons on the Remote to Navigate from one adjustment point to another. Press the Status or Index button on the Remote to select ADJUST. Use the cursor buttons on the Remote to adjust the Red to Green or Blue to Green. Press the Status or Index button again to navigate to the next adjustment location. 3. After Convergence alignments are complete, press the Menu button on the Remote to return to the SELECTION menu. 4. Highlight the STORE selection and press the right cursor key on the Remote to save changes. 5. Use the GREEN TO RED or GREEN TO BLUE selections to perform convergence when the Green CRT has been replaced.

Picture Distortion


you have a convergence problem.. If you understand how this works then you can go into the set find the convergence ic's and replace them and sometimes you need to do some alighnment as well. Its always best though to let a service tech do a job like this as he will have all the proper equipment to adjust and troubleshoot the set Good luck
