What is the PiP module and where is it located?

I have been looking at diagrams but i cannot determine where at what is the PiP module. I have changed the stk chips on it and the capacitors next to the chips but i continue to have a warped screen imust have not changed the right capacitors or something else is burned.

The PIP module is a board that allows you to view two different pictures on your set . Also if your having a convergence problem you might want to suspect an opened fuse that supplys the voltage or possible opened resistors could be causing the problem that your still having . A volt-ohm meter would be helpful in finding your cause . Also be cafeful when checking any electrical device when power is active . Your problem is not your PIP module if your colors are not aligned . Good luck

I have a KDP51ws550 tv that has convergence problems. Flash focus would not work and neither would manual convergence. I replaced the both convergence ICs and checked the pico fuses, turned the unit back...


Check your soldering. Check the vertical power board on the far left when looking from the back. It has fuses on it as well.

Depending on quality of STK chips, they could have been bad or failed right away. Best things is to look at the schematic, verify what colors you can move and see which STK chip is not functioning.

If both chips are not function after replacement, likely a fuse. Be sure to verify the resistors next to the STK chips.

The picture is warped red & blues distorted


Your Convergence ICs have failed. It is very common on rear projections. The solution is to replace the STK chips, check fuses and the resistors next to the STK chips. Replace as necessary and re-align via the service menu. It is about a $300 repair at a tv service center. You will need the service manual if you decide to do this yourself.

Try This:
When you notice the symptons Use this simple test to verify.
Go to the users menu on the tv.
Look for the converge option probably under setup or video setting. Converge is short for convergence to align the red and blue colors to the green color.

If you cannot move the red either horizontal or vertical, then the STK chip has failed for red section.
If you cannot move the blue either horizontal or vertical, then the STK chip has failed for the blue section.

If you can move both in each direction then the problem is something else.


Note if one STK chip fails, you replace both regardless. They will be right next to each other.

At times the screen becomes double


When you say "double" do you mean you see the colors somewhat seperated or see maybe blue or red outlines around objects? Does the screen distort?

There is a quick test you can do to determine if the problem is in your PIP module, using two 4.7uf/50v electrolytic capacitors. The PIP module plugs into two connectors on the main board. Remove the PIP module, and on connector VP on the main board (the 11 pin connector), use one cap to jumper from pin 7 to 9 (negative lead on pin 9); and use the other cap to jumper from pin 5 to 11 (negative lead on pin 11). If the PIP module is bad, you will now have video. The PIP module has surface mount capacitors that go bad. Just make sure you solder a small lentgh of wire to the capacitor leads to prevent them from shorting as they cross over each other. Just plug the wires into the socket no need to solder them.

I have a big screen with three lines at bottom of screen


Likely to be the convergence power supply module. If you fix yourself it is simple provided you can get the module. Take the back off AFTER unplugging set The module is located above the main board on the left and the dynamic convergence board on the right. and come out by about 4 quarter inch nutdriver screws and has only two plugs one on each end of the module. You may find a good used one at your local tv shop or get them to order a new one or fix the existing module by changing the chip on it where the metal heat sink is. Chip number is STK 730-010 or STK 730-130. Either will work. Chip will usually fix it. If not the entire module must be replaced
