Question about Sony KP-ER43M61 43" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Dual picture, dark picture

I have a Sony 42" rear projection TV. It was manufactured in 2000. We are getting a dual picture with a fuzzy line down the approximate center of the screen. The color is also not correct, mostly dark and shadowy. I am pretty sure it is hooked up alright, we recently moved and it has not worked since. It is hooked up with component video cables from a DVD player only, no cable input is connected at this time. Until we moved, the unit worked perfectly. It was handled very carefully and never dropped.

    Yes, I suppose it could be considered like that.

    I can handle the soldering fine, can you point me in the right direction of the convergence IC's?

    Thank you for the info.

    It looks like the convergence ICs are damage or somehow during the move the solder joints around the are became loose.

    If you are handy with a soldering iron, this might be something you can do.

    Please let me know if you need more assistance.

    The ICs that will need to be replace are STK392-020, there are 2 of them.

    I would also suggest to check the 3.15 amps pico/micro fuses nearby the ICs.

Vs 60111 Fuzzy picture


Its a very old set and if happens on all inputs and cables have been ruled out something serious--the rear inputs bypass the tuner in the set and based on its age I would not suggest spending major money (if you can find someone willing to work on a set of this age) on this set.

Many parts for this are no longer available.

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!

Sony projection tv with dual tuners; only one tuner appears to be working now.


To verify that the tuner is the problem, move the cable from the second to the first. If you don't get a signal, the tuner is bad. The main tuner is part number 859843000 and is available for $47.38 from tritronicsinc.com

You likely have a bad hyper board.  As time goes on the lenght of time it takes to get a clear picture will increase and eventually the picture will never clear up untill the part is either repaired or replaced.
