Sony KP-53S25 color misalignment problem

My Sony KP-53S25 tv started to have a problem with the red projector. The problem is a misalignment of the red projector on the entire right side of the tv. The left side of the tv looks fine. It seems the "scale" of the red is lover than it should be and needs to be stretched a little (about 2 inches on the tv) It started to happen once in a while and could be fixed by turning the tv on and off. It is permanent now and will not go away. I had the tv fixed a few years ago and believe I can see the new style board on the side of the red projector tube. Messed with the alignment on the red tube and could not fix the problem.

My question is what would the problem be, and roughly how much to fix it?
Any input would be appreciated.

Re: Sony KP-53S25 color misalignment problem

Scroft, I'm new at this forum, but your problem sounds like mine, some guys here sugget me to replace the convergence IC's, I just ordered them and I should get them by tomorrow or Monday at the latest, you might wanna go that route. But first, please try to adjust the convergence on from the TV's menu, I hope is just a little adjustment, otherwise you will have to replace those 2 IC's,

I am having trouble adjusting my colors for my kp 53s25 there seems to be a lot of yellow how can i solve this?

This TV has had a long life. Your picture is looking more yellow these days because the Blue picture tube is wearing out. Not saying the Green and Red tub are much better, but Blue tube is a major player in the picture brightness and white balance (the color of white which the TV reproduces). The cost involved wouldn't be justified. You should enjoy the balance of the TVs life; when it's time comes... have the new TV delivered and ask them recycle this one. Best wishes.
