Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I have a problem with my Sony 57"wide screen TV Model kp57ws510

The TV is like I am seeing double, there are lines on the left and right side that are blue gray and red. Is this something I can repair or must I take it into a shop. The local shop wants more than $400.00 for the repair, but they won't give me the name of the bad part.
My email is patandcarolallen@gamil.com
thank you for your help

    also it can be due to convergence ICs going BAD.

    repair shops usually dont tell you what the parts are.

It looks like a dynamic focus problem. But I think you'd have to call a shop. It would require a part order, soldering, and likely more test and troubleshooting. It could be guessed that it's a dynamic focus transformer or similar, from looking in the schematic.

54inch Hitachi TV has double figures and colors red, yellow-not normal. Set approximately seven -eight years old. Lost remote control and direction book in moving. Is the set worth getting fixed? Generally...


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Everything on the screen is doubled focus and it seems like the screen is calapsd in the middle


What you describe is probably a color convergence collapse, usually caused by a power amplifier failure, refer to the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esk4nYZKFcg if this video is close to what you see on your TV you will need to replace both power convergence IC, the model KP57WS510(model given in your post) calls for STK392-510 both are available through UED, email johnl@ued.net, the above link gives an idea on what is needed for the IC replacement, that is if you're thinking of repairing the problem yourself.

Convergence


there are a series of 4.7 ohm 1/2 watt resistors all in a row under the fins of the ICs. Check them they have to have one side unsolderd to check them. There are also 6 yellow pico fuses in that line of resistors that need to be checked as well.
