Question about Sony KP-51HW40 51" Rear Projection Television
You will need to replace the two convergence IC'S this set uses--they should be STK-392-560 and are located on metal heat sinks side by side; usually towards the left as you look from the back.
If only one color is skewed, replacing both should cure the problem---a pair of the chips can be purchased on EBAY for about 12 dollars.
Soldering is involved and some skill to get at, remove, and replace the chips.
Let me know if you need more information--I have fixed hundreds of these sets for this problem.
Repair will take about a hour or longer if you have never done it before.
