Question about Sony KP61XBR200 TV

Unsuccessful autofocus followed by E15R code--red curves out at corners

There were no warning signs. Powered up one day and the red convergence was terrible and the blue is possibly off. Looks 3D. The center is closest but horizontal lettering shows red shadow evenly below letters. Corners are drastically curved to outside. The red light somewhat resembles a bowtie shape in widescreen format. Any help would be appreciated seeing as how I live far from a repair shop. I am somewhat a diy but terminology and trade jargon I don't always know.

    Tried magnet trick and red would move around. Afterward tried autofocus and could see green and blue align at cross, red never moved. But immediately following autofocus blue and green are misaligned again. How long until the magnetic field is corrected?

    Are crt's replaceable by mortal man or require numerous solders instead of connectors?

  • ws6tester Jun 08, 2008

    Will the blue and green correct back if I leave it off or leave it on? Or is this a new problem I created?

EKse sent me your problem. What the problem your experienceing is caused by are the convergence amps need to be replaced. Your model is one of the few that uses the STK392-020 convergence ICs they are located on the D Board mounted to tow large heat sinks. Also check the 4.7 Ohm 1/2 watt metal film resisitors that are all in a row under the fins on the heat sink as its very common for a few of these resistors to be open. you will also notice 6 pico fuses that will be either solid green or solid yellow check them as well as they are 3.5 amp fuses. You can get any of the parts that you need such as the replacement ICs and resistors at the following link they have free shipping and they will help you out with free instalation instructions with pictures. let me know if you need more assistance.

This clearly is a hardware side problem. Most likely the red crt tube is geting old - lazy - failing. and would need to be replaced.

allthought I'm not sure since I'm not fimiliar with this spesific model.

Here seems to be the service manual.

There may be problem in CRT tube ....
you must and should visit the technician ...
he will fill the CRT tube again ....
this discoloration will be gone after that....

before that you can just try one trick ....
take a magnet and take it to the area where the discoloration is occurring & from that area just take the magnet to the corners or edge .....
by this the discoloration may go ....
try it .

When we try to adjust red cross, red adjustment will go side to side but not up and down. Red horizontal line is curved instead of a straight horizontal line. Blue can be adjusted up and down and don't...


Thats the classic sign of failed convergence ICs and resistors. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model at www.tvrepairworld.com the kit contains the parts and the Cd with instructions.

Convergence problem?


The convergence anp ICs are usually what go bad in that unit. They are two ICs both are STK392-040 and they are at board location ICZ103 and IZC103 on the Sub Board attached to large heat sinks. You can get replacements with free installation instructions and free on line tech support at the following link.

Blue curves up on the ends and red down


Your going to need to hook up a cross hatch generator to adjust the internal convergence alighnments. Anytime, a tube is replaced, there is alot of alighnment involved with the convergence, and it cannot be alighned from the customers convergence controls. I suggest first you get a service manual, and follow the alighnment to the letter for the convergence. If you do not have a cross hatch generator, then your going to need a test disc(DVD) that has a cross hatch on it. If you do not have access to those two things(cross hatch generator or the test disc) you will need to call out a tech to do this alighnment to the set. They (service tech) don't tell you when you get an estimate for a picture tube that there is some alighnment involved that reguires special test equipment. Thats why they charge what they do. I wish I had better news for you, but without proper test equipment, this is going to be a tough battle. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.
