Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Shifting red colors

I have had no issues with my Sony. All of the suddeen we turn it on and the red color has shifted a bit to the right and up. How can I reset the converengence? On old CRT units I would say to do a degausing but I don't think that will work on this set.

Red area/red line on tv screen


Odds are it is your convergence chips! If you have any colors out of alignment, thats what it is. Also if you had a speaker too close to the Tv it can cause colors to shift. There should only be 1 mirror. IT would have NOTHING to do with your problem. If you are only have problems with the red, just replace the one STK chip. They run about $20-30 on ebay. $5-10 if you buy china made. Usually the cheap ones dont get along with sony.

Sony TV losing focus


Your TV most likely a convergence failure. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem


  • 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.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

Color problems and tv shutting off


My tv screen turns red as it heats up and the repairshop told me it would cost $600.00 for a new red projection gun how ever I don't think thats the case because it is a heat related issue. I think an ic or transistor is going bad and goes into saturation when it gots warm. I will be spraing some components with freeze spray and if my hunch is correct the color will temporarly correct its self when I spray the right component.

Sounds like a convergence issue. Call Sony for an ASC that can come out and give you an estimate. You are probably looking at $200-400 to do the repair.
