Sony 3d images and red /blue colour

I'm told my sony KP 48565 has a convergence problem. I have 3d type images and blue/red colours. Is there are way I can adjust this? The repair shop told me I had to take it in to repair. The t.v is in my attic and very heavy to take down 3 flights of stairs (I would also have to remove the railing). Is it worth repairing , I purcahased it in 2000 and expected more than 7 years use out of it.This is a rear projection t.v.

Re: sony 3d images and red /blue colour

Most of the time the convergence ic's can be replaced in the home.they are usually the 2 large ic's on the left side board mounted to a large heat sink..the ic's will cost between 25 an 50 dollars each.. the job requires soldering skills so you might want to call around to find a tech to come and replace the..also are you sure you don't have a kp 48V65?

The tv picture looks like should be wachting it whith 3d glasse

This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets. Its called a convergence failure. Here are some common symptoms.
  • 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.
The other common problem is cloudy lens fluid. After many years the coolant in the blue and green lens will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, bright white, etc. You may even see halos around objects on the screen.

You can see some example photos and find a solution here on Fixya.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site 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.
