    I had my convergence checked and the repair guy solved it by using the remote and it appeared he new a code. Can this be shared with me so I do not need to call him back.

    I am having a convergence problem I think with my TV. The colors are overlaping especially with the letters. It is under warranty and two months ago a service repair guy came to fix and did it all by using the remote control. Is it only a secret to him or can I find out the method to do it.

  • cube452 Feb 15, 2009

    It appears that I have the same issue going on here. When I opened the backside, I could clearly see the green and blue light spinning or working much faster then the red. I'm hoping for some help with what might be wrong, I don't want to have to replace this tv already. Any help with parts and schematics would be greatly appreciated. thank you in advance, Gerald

Yes - You can do it yourself. On the Sony Tv its a fairly easy repair.

Your TV most likely has one of two 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.

Solution #2


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.

Double images--3d view--ghost picture Sony KP-53HS30


The convergence amps are the big STK's*** located possibly on the G-board in the sony. It is very difficult if you are not familiar with components and soldering, You can buy them at MCMelectronics, bluestar-online.com, Tritronics, VanceBaldwin.com, etc. Diagrams are online at fixya.com on the rightside of screen. Places like Manual.com or you can search the web. Hope this helps!
