Awesome, Dude! You are the best! Thank you for the tip. I didn't need the caps or resistors, I just replaced the 2 Convergence ICs and I didn't need to do any adjustments. Man...love you!

You need to replace both convergence ICs they are STK392-560 and you will also need a couple 3.5amp pico fuses and a couple 4.7 ohm 1/2watt resistors. You can get replacement parts at the following link and they provide free instalation instructions and free online tech support to help you with the instalation process. Heres the link.

Convergence problems.


Your convergence ICs are likely bad, not typically a CRT or tube going out. A repair shop will fix for $200-400 or if you are very skilled you could repair yourself.

RED SHADOW AROUND IMAGES of SONY KP-57WS510 RPCRT


Your set uses two STK392-560 convergence ICs they are attached to a large heat sink on the D board. You can save your self about 400 for a twenty minute repair by getting new ICs at the following link as trhey provide free instalation instructions with pics so you can do the job yourself. It only requires basic soldering skills I would order about six 4.7ohm 1/2 watt resistors as well just in case you need them asusually sonys' will burn one or two of the 4.7ohm convergence resistors when the ICs fail.
