SOURCE: Sony KP-51WS500 Rear Projection TV colors are distorted.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • 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.
Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

SOURCE: sony kp65ws500 color rear video projection tv is

If 3D picture one or both of the the STK-392-560 CONVERGENCE IC chips this set uses is bad.

Both chips need to be replaced and any fuses or protect resistors around them as well that are bad need to be replaced.

Some basic facts:
The chips are located usually on the left side as you look from the back on two metal heat sinks with fins.

Each has 18 pins and is bolted to the heat sink. A white grease is applied to the metal back of each chip when it is installed----it transfers heat quickly from the chip to the heat sink--hence the name.

After some years the grease dries out and one of the chips pops and convergence is lost.

Considering the parts for a repair like this are usually under 25 dollars total---if you or someone you know can do it for you---you can save the set and also a lot of money.

I can tell you the best place to buy the parts, tell you if you decide to do it what to look for first, and YES I can give you general instructions for this sets repair.

If you cannot do the repair yourself---shop around your area---most shops charge 300-400 for this type of repair. If they say it "Has to go to the Shop" keep looking as any good tech can do this repair in your home in about 1 hour---------I KNOW, I have done hundreds of them.

If you have learned something from my answer rate this solution---

SOURCE: My sony kp-51ws510 tv picture looks slanted and 3D blurry.

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

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.



Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

My sony kp 57xbr10w TV got screen color turning red, how to do with it?

The picture turning reddish indicates the red CRT is failing. Sony does not make the CRT Assemblies available anymore. What they want you to do is to send the red CRT assembly to them, (this includes the Optical Coupler), so they can mount a new red CRT on that Coupler and send it back to you. This runs about 300.00 a CRT and you have three of them. I mention this because if the red is failing, the blue and green CRT's are not too far behind. With the price of LCD sets falling, I do not think it would be economical to fix it.
I hope this helps,

The picture looks like it has a curve to it and there are like rainbow colors around the screen and the picture is a little blurry at times.


The curve is because the vertical adjustment is not on place. Most probably the soldering will be loose at that one. If you can open the monitor it is just doing a soldering at the lead points.
