Question about Sony KP-41T65 41" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

I am having a shadow/double image problem only on the left side of the screen

The double image is most noticeable when i have text up on the screen(i'm using the internet function with my Wii). I have tried using the menu options to center the red and blue cross thing. The picture is great everywhere else except the left hand side(as great as a rear projection can be). Is there a "convergence" part i can buy to replace the one in the tv?? i looked on and i don't know the name of the part! please help! thanks,

Yes its called the Convergence ICs there are two of them they are mounted on a huge heat sink with the part number stamped on them they will have a STK number such as STK392-110. they have 16 pins on them there are two cost around 10 dollars each, you will also need some Heat sink Compound. Just look for the largest heat sink in your tv and thats where they will be. However if you can move both red and blue colors up,down right and left its probaly not your ICs. Do the colors move in all directions? If so you probaly just need to do a multipoint convergence adjustment.via of the service menu. Hope this helps. let me know if you need anything further.

Samsung HCN4727W Rear Projection TV, green screen, audio works

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. This is called convergence.

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,Akai2_bing.gif,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link 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 - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Picture is distorted from center on my 65

You do have a failure in the convergence circuit of your set. If you are good at soldering you can replace the IC's yourself. They are on the large circuit board on the left side of the set looking from the back, and attached to a large aluminum heat sink. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, I reccomend removing the board and sending it to PTS corp in Indiana. They are pretty reasonable repairing boards, and a lot less than buying a new one.

Picture is distorted from center on my 65" Sony projection TV.

hi. this will be an easy fix for you if you are a good solder. you will need to replace the convergence chip that is located on the PC board(main). this chip is damaged and it has failed due to this damage that has occurred. click below for your new convergence chip(stk).

Shadows and text curved. Double images

The convergence IC's need to be replaced. The generic part # on them is STK392-110. This is not easily done by yourself.
