Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Colors splitting. My TV is about 5 years old and I noticed  that in the center at  the bottom of the screen, colors splitting. Especially, when the screen is dark, I can see three basic colors that I believe are used to generate overall picture. I suspect that it may be a normal thing for the guns to be adjusted every so often. Am I correct?. If so, how hard is it to do such procedure.

Max, go into "video menu" and find "convergence set-up", follow the on screen directions. Basically you want to move the "red" onto the green and then the "blue" onto the other two and the cross will turn white, once it turns white it is re-converged and your done, note: If any of the red or blue adjustments do not function then the set needs convergence circuit repaired, questions? e-mail me back, otherwise Happy New Year, BMW Rider

You will need to replace your two convergence I.C.s.They are two large IC mounted on a large aluminum heat sink.Replace both,look for any burned resistors near them,replace those if needed,and readjust your convergence. Good Luck

Pt-47wx49e convergence problem


I just replaced the 2 convergance chips, but it did not seem to fix the problem. I then tested all the resistors that feed the convergence chips anf there was a 2.2 ohm fusable blown. IT was R7050 on mine. That seemed to fix it so that I could adjust all the colors through the convergence 2 screen. There seems to be a slight bow near the bottom when you look at the c2 screen, but not noticable when you are watching a picture. Since I got this broken, I am not sure how perfect it should be.

If anyone can send me the service manual, I would appretiate it. Thanks.
