Question about Sony KP-61V85 61" Rear Projection Television

Convergence IC`s defective

I have defective convergance ic`s here is what I was told to do to fix,

"If you know how to solder, this should be an easy fix for you.
The IC markings are STK392-150 with locations IC1502, IC1506, mounted on a big heatsink(s)."

I know how to solder I have stuffed electronic boards and soldered them, if I knew exactly what to solder I could, do I need to replace the IC`s or find a break in a trace on the board? I need the solution expanded (greater detail) if possible, Thank you in advance.
any help would be great

Check this link for the parts you need. Open the back of the TV and you will see the parts there.
I would suggest to remove the defective ICs by cutting the leads from the old ones and remove the left over leads from the assembly very carefully. Once you have remove the leads, clean the holes from the PCB to install the new parts.
Let me know if you need more assistance.

I have a sony big screen kp57wv600 and the picture looks like I need 3D glasses. The pictures has a green and red hallo all around the outer picture. The picture is clear in the center and goes out and is...

Sir the problem of your tv is the convergence to narrow the problem try to adjust first the convergence settings using your original remote go to setting menu then to the convergence setting, you can adjust the red and blue convergence, you should be able to adjust the red and blue left, right and up, down you should align the red and blue to green but if you cannot move them far enough or if you cant move them in any direction the convergence IC is already defective replacing this IC will fix the problem, you will find this convergence IC attach to a large aluminum plate this aluminum plate is the heat sink. It is easy to locate if you remove the back cover of your unit be sure to unplug your TV
this is the convergence IC if you remove this try to observe also if there is a cold solder or dry joint because sometimes this cause your convergence to malfunction observe the solder part of the convergence.
This is a cold solder or dry joints you can fix this by resoldering using a soldering iron, soldering lead, and desoldering pump but be sure not to connect separated pins it may cause much damage to unit if accidentally solder together. To replace the IC convergence try to check this link hope this helps good day and best regards.

I have an rca 60 inch big just happen to show double vision looks 3d with out the ....sound is all good just the picture..model number..mm61110 chassis number..mmc102g..i love...

Yes it can be fix, first try to adjust the convergence setting in the setting menu then go to convergence section, adjust the red and blue convergence. You should be able to move the red and the blue convergence up, down and left, right but if you cannot move this far enough the convergence IC is defective and should be replaced. This convergence IC is attached to a large aluminum plate, this is the heat sink and the convergence IC has a marking of STK-#### followed by a number, in order to replace this IC you should have a soldering iron, desoldering pump, soldering lead be careful when pulling out the IC you may accidentally tampered or damage the PCB and caused much damage to the unit. Note before opening the back cover of your tv be sure to unplug it first. But if you are not familiar with electronic parts you can contact a service technician to do it for you and save you from stress good day and best regards.

Colored lines at top and bottom when tv comes on and seeing double vision in different colors at all times

If your tv is not a DLP the problem is in the convergence, try to adjust it using your original remote control go to the setting menu then to the convergence section. Adjust the red and blue convergence. you should move the red and the blue in up, down and left, right if this color does not move far enough your convergence IC is already defective. Replacing this convergence IC will solve the problem. In locating this convergence IC you should remove the back cover of your unit but be sure to unplug it before doing this. This convergence IC is attached to a large aluminum plate, it is the heat sink, and it has a marking of stk- ### followed by numbers. You can try to pull it out using a soldering iron and soldering pump but be careful you may damage the board and cause much problem to your unit. Or you can contact a technician to do it for you and save you from stress good day and best regards.

Convergence problem

Usually what happens is that the convergence IC goes bad or the fuse going to the convergence ic goes bad. Pico fuses they are called sometimes open up. You may want to open it up and pull the board out and check the solder connections on the convergence IC. Sometimes these get fractured or cold soldered and aren't making connection to the PC board.
Let me know if you feel comfortable with pulling TV chassis out or pulling the board that has the convergence IC on it out. Then you can resolder convergence IC OR replace it.First thing i would do is check to make sure there is between 22vdc and 25vdc on the fuse or the convergence IC. Let me know if this helps out any.... Sincerely HDTV GURU JAY

How do i fix my toshiba flat screen 57" tv when it looks like it is 3d

It sounds like the convergence IC's have failed.
Replace the defective Convergence Output IC Part Number 23905094 (STK392-110) using the revised “T” version IC Part Number 23135090 (STK392-110T). When Convergence Output failure is detected, it’s recommended that both IC’s be changed to the “T” type IC version. Inspect the Convergence Output IC’s for the “T” type version.

My LG rear projection TV RE40NZ60RB colour is ghosting with three colours separating. Colour converging does not rectify

There is a problem with the convergence circuit. It can be as simple as poor solder connections at the pins of the convergence IC or a defective IC. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. Please confirm the model number of hte set and I'll provide the part numbers etc. required to resolve this.

KP-48V85 Sony with Technician diagnosed Convergence problem

kt33, of course you can do it yourself cheaper, IF you know how to solder & un-solder parts and IF you have a voltmeter and know how to use it. Convergence IC`s and probably a few support resistors will have to be removed and replaced. IF you can do the above I can look-up the IC`s for you but your on your own with the resistors until you tell me which ones you need if any, let me know, BMW Rider

Hello Renee, You have a convergence problem, but you are adjusting the wrong system. You need to adjust the convergence rings first ok You need a dot and crosshatch generator to properly set convergence for this set. Connect the generator set the TV to channel 3 and turn on the generator set it to dots adjusting the convergence try to get the center dot RGB all together and then adjust for the outer edges using the convergence board. the use the crosshatch to adjust convergence along the lines of the crosshatch pattern. Remember use the rings first and the the convergence board adjustments.
