Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDP-51WS655 51" Rear Projection HDTV
Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems that you have to replace the convergence IC and check power resistor for leakage, if values are not exact you have to replace them. The typical cost to get this fixed by a pro is about $300 - and it doesn't mean that he/they will do a job better than you do. The parts are less than $100 (about $20-$30 for the IC's) if you want to do it yourself. Replacing only the IC's MAY solve the problem; however, many people have also had blown resistors requiring replacement. Why would you ask should you replace both of the IC's if only one is shot?! If one is shot the other one is not far away and for that little price of the chips it worth changing them both at the same time. Also the convergence board should be checked for cracked solder. If you replace the ICs and the resistors are shot, the ICs may blow again almost immediately, meaning you may have to do the repair twice.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Double picture is due to convergence out chips failure in tv, replace convergence out chips (quantity 02) to fix the problem.
Let me know if you want to replace these chips by yourself, please note that it requires soldering work in circuit board of tv with proper tools.
