Question about Sony Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Sony KP-46WY510 Picture has color ghosting. Images about 2 inches offset from each other in red, green and blue. Picture is also coming up in the bottom center and down in the top center. Kind of an arc across the top and bottom. Any ideas? Thanks, Glenn

    Not an rf problem. Happens even on graphics such as the volume bar. Juat looks like it's way out of convergence. About 2 inches at the sides. Almost ok in the center.

    Are the mirror tubes. If you get displaced green images, for example, it is the green tube needs alignment, this is a frequent problem with your model.
    If is not a tube alignment matter, then is a broken component, probably an IC or a capacitor has blown. A technician must test the pcb inside in both case.
    Chech if your TV is under guaranty, if not check with Sony if you can get an extended guaranty, it cost $300, and usually repay itself at first use. Do not mention the fault when asking extendend guaranty.
    You find Sony customer service number printed on last pages of your user manual.

Picture ghosts shows 3 images like it is out of focus colors also ghost in 3


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. 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 Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

KP-53S65 Blue Ghosting


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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 Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
