Question about Sony KP-61HS30 TV

Replaced STK's : Still have problem. HS30

Will someone give me some tips please?
A few months back, I placed some pics online of a problem that I was having with my HS30. 5 or 6 different people said to replace the STK's and they all said the same thing.
I finally got around to replacing the STK's today and after turning it on, I get the same thing. Or maybe before the lines were curved a bit. Now the color alignment is that same but straight lines.

Maybe I am not remembering correctly. It just seems that SOMETHING may have changed with the new STK's.

Anyway, here are some pics of the problem as it is now. They are large pics so give them a min to load after you click on them.

Thank you all for your help and consideration,

    Thank you for your reply.

    As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. I put about
    twenty pics at

    The convergence is off. Unless I have some cold solder joints somewhere, it should not be the STK's. I just replaced them.

    Thank you,

It is possible that either a resistor or a pico fuse has opened or changed in value. Look for discoloration on any low value resistors around convergence chips also, look for small green or tan colored fuses between power supply and convergence circuit. Test for open fuses with ohm meter. Hope that helps.

Top and bottom of the screen are cut off

That set has an aspect ratio of 4:3. The problem is that what you are sending to it is 16:9 So you are sending an hd signal to a non HD television. The tuner is NTSC which is not HD. Theres not much that you can do about this.

My color started fading about 2 months ago NOW it its smearing and ghosting.I can turn it off and for a few minutes the pics fine and then its back to the same situation

I had a similar problem. Poor picture quality, and colors way out of balance. The problem: too much dust on the circuit board. I opened it up (remove 8-10 screws and don't forget the 2 little ones holding the coax/cable connection), gently vacuumed off the circuit boards (the bottom one and the one on the back of the tube). It works perfectly now, without ever repeating the problem. This may need to be done every few years, especially in dusty environments. It has also worked on my computer motherboard, and power supply. I think a build up of dust can cause a very weak short across the closely spaced circuits. Give it a try, it's free and you don't have anything to lose! Just be gentle.

Sony kp-61hs30 blue shadow on screen makes it look 3d. i get that its a convergence problem but how do i fix it?

These tv's have 2 convergence IC's (integrated circuits) As to which of them controls blue,i dont know because I cant see the bottom of the board. Let a technician change them! You will only truly need one,but it is VERY HIGLY recommended that you replace them both. As one has many hours of use on it versus one that is brand new,it tends to become a hassle when the other ic needs to be replaced as well. It costs more up front but will definatly be worth it if you plan to keep this tv for a while.

If you insist on being the DIY'er,then take the back panel off at the bottom,unscrew the plastic facing that is attached to the av jacks,and look for a 40-60 pin IC that is in a 1:1 aspect this big

There will be two of them,look at the part number something like
STK-xxx-xx. It doesnt necessarily have to be an stk IC but that's one of the more popular parts used. Look for it online DO NOT BUY USED unless it is coming as refurbished from a manufacturer. You will need a soldering iron and desoldering braid. TAKE YOUR TIME and don't burn the foils off of the board or you will have to make a new connection for it which is a hassle.

If this helps,please give a positive feedback
