    I have the same problem. I have red shadows under words, and blue and green shadows under people's eys and hair. The shadows seem to bow downward on the bottom and upward on the top of the screen.

    You will need......


    POSSIBLE PICO FUSES



    And defineatly




    STK's aka Convergence IC



    Extract from link above



    "There are a lot of companies that make cheap bad ic's that can be purchased usually for around $6.00 - These replacement ic's are BAD, they will FAIL on you again. I have had allot of experience with this problem, please listen to my warning! Only get a set that is from a reputable manufacturer.."



    ....."The stk ic's are on the "D" board, attached to large heat sinks"



    If you have not got some basic repair and electronic experence do not play with electricity, call in a friend that does. Read All the information in links and please be aware that even with the tv turned off and unplugged, it is still holding enough electricity to kill you.

You can download a copy of the service manual that explains how to enter service mode and perform convergence of the red/blue/green guns, but unless you are comfortable doing something like this, you may be better off calling a good shop familiar with rear projection sets and getting a quote to have a convergence service performed.

Thats a convergence failure issue. The Sony Type 1 convergence repair kit available from www.tvrepairworld.com is the kit your model uses. The kit contains the parts and the CD with instructions.

Double image ( Ghost image )on Sony KP-65WS500


Replacing the Convergence ICs should fix the problem. They are located on the Deflection board. Sony has used a couple of different ones over the years I think they are STK-392-120's but please do not hold me to it.
Hope this helps,

Sounds like a convergence issue. Call Sony for an ASC that can come out and give you an estimate. You are probably looking at $200-400 to do the repair.
