You will need two STK392-560 Convergence ICs and you will also need two of the 3.5 amp pico fuses as Sonys will always blow at least two of the Pico fuses. You can get replacement ICs and Pico fuses at the fiollowing link and they provide free instalation instructions. Heres the link.

Replacing the IC's and the checks you did usually solves the problem.

Double check your wires - especially the R,G and B convergence wires going to the CRT necks - I've had them mislabbeled from the factory b4 and that really throws you off.
Was there any change in symptoms once the IC's were changed and do you have the negative and + supplies feeding the IC's (usually around 30VDC)
If you have the manual, have you tried service menu convergence adjustments?

I have a Sony KP-57S510 and need to get to the service menu but dont have the remote. Is there a way around using the remote to access it?


On that model I believe you need an original Sony projection remote or one of the "magic tv remotes" that support the convergence function.

My Sony KP-53HS30 rear projection tv has horizontal squiggly lines in the center of the picture.


What is the issue you are trying to adjust? Convergence or width or what? The set has an adjustment menu that is hidden but can be called up with the remote used in a certain way.

How to fix the convergence on a toshiba TP55D81 tv using the remote control


The convergence is adjusted with the remote by entering a tech menu and adjusting there====if convergence is really bad adjustments are not going to fix it.

The set should have in customer menu a limited convergence adjustment with up to nine points where you can adjust---if it will not adjust there in some way----convergence circuit needs repair.

Misaligned convergence on sony kp-65ws510


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

WS-55809 with Universal Remote


you will have to get a new mitsu remote in order to make the adjustment. Most universal remotes are made to just do basic functions, unless you start getting into nice sony touchscreen remotes but then they cost 100 by themselves.
the remote to a mitsubishi wd55513, wd65513 etc will also work on this set, I have done it before.
Here is one on ebay:

Sony kf60xbr800 need to set the convergence?


Use the sony remote to pull up the menue for the tv and then find the convergence menue and try to adjust it there. Most likly it will not adjust and the circuit is bad. This will cost somewhere around $300-$500 to have a repair man fix. It is not common for convergence to go out for no reason.

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