Question about Sony KP-46WT500 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Ok, I used a magnifying glass and desoldered two pins which may have been soldered togehter and guess what, I fixed it. I had to go into the front focus settings and twick them to get the final 3D effect to go away. Anyway thanks to yoru website, I now have my TV back for about $65 compared to $500. but I did have to spend about 5 hours readings and working on the soldering. I could do much better next time.

Your TV has a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms.
Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in or warped.
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence or magic focus section.
Try to adjust the 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.
Its a fairly easy fix.
You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from www.TvRepairKits.com. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.
