Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

I have a 7 year old Sony KP-51W5510 rear projection tv. The right side is all yellow and the left is all blue. In the middle the colors line up but gets worse towards the left and right. My convergence feature did not fix this. Do I need to replace the lamps? Can I do that myself? Is this problem worth spending the money or should I get rid of it. Thanks

No.This problems it not the projection lamp problems.Yes,this problems is the tv convergence board problems,it dead.The tv convergence board the 2 STK covergence ICS and some or all it resistors are dead.These parts,must be replaced on the tv convergence board to solved the convergence problems.U have tools like a soldering iron,desordering pump,know basic electronic and soldering?Tries websites like Tvrepairworld.com,Tvrepairkits.com to buy a convergence kit to repair it ur self.Or the shop will cost u $300-350 for parts and labors.

You need to replace the convergence IC's in the set. Part number STK 392-560. Two of them. They have to be unsoldered and solder in new ones. You must have advanced experience to get the job done. I suggest you get a TV technician.

This is a very common failure on Projection sets. Its called a convergence problem.
You may have one or more of the following symptoms.

One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed or warped.
No Audio / No Video - Makes Chirping Sounds

I got this TV for FREE from a guy posting it on craigslist because he saw "BLUE SWIRL LINES" also knows as "Retrace Line" on the screen and he went to several repair people and got high repair costs so he was giving it away for free, but i found a guide that tells you how to adjust the tv to make the blue or green or red lines go away, aparantly the line show up because the voltage on the color ray gun tubes that get out of adjustment. Here is the Link to the REPAIR GUIDE. http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html
