Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Sony KP-51WS510 picture and sound issues

The picture will distort/pixelate and the sound will be distorted at the same time. At first I thought it was dish network and I had them come out 5 times to re-point the dish with no success. I finally switched to cox cable and I'm having the same problem! It will just distort or partially freeze the picture and the sound will distort as well. Thanks for the help.

Double picture symptom shows tv got problem with convergence out section and most probably convergence out chips would be replace to fix this issue.
Though its job of qualified tv tech to replace convergence out chips yet I can provide you helpful info if you are handy with electronics stuff repair and can replace parts in circuit board as soldering work is needed with proper tools to repair tv.

Our Sony KP-51WS510 has purple smears and the bottom of the screen splits off, we (me and my wife) would like to know how we can solve this problem or anyone who can do so in Jacksonville NC


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2
