Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television
Your convergence IC's have burnt out.
Ask yourself this:
Is the Tv worth saving? is it bright and clear? was it good (when it worked?)
if the answer to all of these is yes, then you have a few choices. If any of these are not true, then you should just get a new tv.
Your choices are:
If you are good at soldering, then you can attempt to replace the IC's yourself. (with all of the parts handy, it should take 1 hour)
If you aren't good at soldering, then you can have a friend do it for you, or you can have a mechanic fix it. (tell them that its the convergence IC's that went bad. (pay no more than $200 for the job).
here is what they look like:
(the number may be different)
Here they are connected:
A word of the wise, do NOT open up your tv and attempt this if you don't know what you're doing. There is extremely high voltage inside, even when it's unplugged......so don't get shocked!!!
If you need more info on replacing the IC's, contact me.
Thanks for asking!

Do you have a manual, and are you prepared to tackle this problem ? diagnostics is in depth .
projection TV`s have many protective circuits in them, they protect your CRT`s from damage, over voltage called x-ray, and many others.
