Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The issue is with the convergence ICs going bad and needs to be replaced. It’s not a difficult job if you want to do this yourself, you should require some basic knowledge about soldering-resoldering components. To start with you’ll have to open the back of the unit and then replace the ICs(STK ICs) which are located behind the black heat sink and also check the resistors as if they are short the ICs might blow again after sometime. There are repair kits available which includes repair instructions with the parts, if you want to do it yourself you can buy and repair it yourself. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

The picture shows all 3 colors seperate from each


Sounds like a problem in your convergence circuit. This is the circuit responsible for making sure all 3 colors align perfectly so that you don't see what you are seeing now. If you have tried adjusting it and that did not work then you will need to have the convergence circuit repaired.

Pink and green colors seperated images rounded off


If colors are skewed and will not adjust in the customer menu---you have a CONVERGENCE circuit problem.

This model (KP-51WS500) uses two of the STK-392-560 convergence IC chips. I just got home from fixing a similar model with the same problem.

Parts cost on Ebay for the chips and such is going to be less than 30 dollars total. Shops are going to get 300 or more for this kind of repair---and some will not do it in your home---the repair takes about an hour--I have done hundreds of them here in people's homes.

If you have questions or need advice, reply to this posting and I will try to help.

Fuzzy picture and dark picture and color seperation when hot.


The colors seperating is a convergence problem, as far as being dim this may be related but the TV likely needs service adjustments.

convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Color


see if there is a "default" option, if not set everything back to the middle, if the colors are still off you sure its not the convergence?
most big screens allow you to change "color temperature" it's like a default adjustment for 3 different brightness levels.... ie...COOL, WARM picture will show obvious changes in brightness

Picture mess-up


This is a convergence problem that can be either bad connections on the convergence ICs or defetive ICs. If you can solder you should be able to fix this yourself. Look for large black ICs attached to a heat sink that will likely be marked STKxxx. Resolder the pins on these first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace them. Expect to pay about $20-$35 for each one. There should be 2 of them.
