Question about Sony KP43T75GRAY 43" Rear Projection Television
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.

Sounds like the convergence IC'S are either bad or a fuse maybe bad in the convergence circuit. The part # should be on the chip itself if you want to try and change them yourself. Good luck and keep me up to date on outcome. Cheers. Jay

yes the board components are out.not to replace whole board only two convergence ic on the board needs replacement.
they are not at all costly this link which is mentioned belkow has all the instructions to replace the ic on the board just click it and follow the instructions

Your symptoms sounds like a damaged convergence IC.
There are two and large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. They will have a part number stamped on them that will start with an STKXXX-XXX, like STK392-110, and they are located on the signal board (on the left as you look into the back of the set).
What happens in the Panasonic set is that the convergence IC’s will short and cause the power supply to shut down from the overload of current. Along with the convergence IC’s there will also be some associated components that will need to be replaced as well. There are some resistors that are part of the convergence circuit that will be open and need to be replaced. Most likely these will appear charred in the center. If you have an Ohm Meter or a DVM, check all the resistors that are close to the IC’s and you should be looking for either ones that have opened or have changed values.
There are also two resistors on the front of the board located in the middle that are fusible link resistors, these should be checked for opens and replaced if they are found so.
I would suggest that you contact a service center in your area for a complete diagnosis and repair, as this type of repair can get a little tricky. But if you want to repair the set yourself, just remember to be careful. The capacitors and CRT’s can hold a charge and may shock you.
If one of the convergence IC’s are found to be bad, I would replace them both, if one has gone bad the other may go soon. I usually order my parts from Andrews Electronics in California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is http://www.andrewselectronics.com/welcome.aspx
And their phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.
I would also advise that the convergence IC’s be OEM or better, just because they are cheap does not mean that they are a good deal. I have seen the cheap IC’s fail after a short time, even though they look exactly like the OEM IC’s. I think that the bottom line is that you will get what you pay for when it comes to the parts.
You can also try http://www.tvrepairkits.com/ , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

If this is a kp-46wt510: You need to replace the two convergence ic's; they should be STK 392 types---look inside and you will see them on identical large metal heat sinks with fins--the ones your set uses will have the full stk number on them(stk-392-110 or stk-392-560 are the most common for Sony)
They both need to be replaced and any bad fuses or resistors around them that protect them found and replaced---Most of the time just the two chips need to be replaced and the set adjusted with the remote; I have done hundreds of these sets and usually the repair takes about an hour and can be done in your home.
