Question about Sony KP-61V45 61" Rear Projection Television

Sony kp-61v45 Blue Convergence off by 2 inches

Hi,

I have the Sony kp-61v45. It was purchased in aug of 1997. Recently the tv has a 3D shadow. When looking at the convergence the BLUE was about 2 inches off to the right. When adjusting I CAN go up/down left right but when going all the way to the left I am still about 1 1/2 inches off.

From reading here and other places I did find that the common problem was the IC's and possibly the 2 Pico fuses. So I ordered then.

1) I checked the Pico fuses and they did om ok so I did not replace them.

2) I replace the 2ea old STK392-110 with STK392-180 (from reading it was noted these are BETTER are they??)


3) I replaced the IC's and turned on the unit.

4) Went in the Service menu and did a reset

** I still get the same issue with the blue. It almost looks like the blue is another 1/2 inch to the right. I still can move up/down left/right but, am still around 2 inches off. (see Pic)



** Should of I replaced the Pico fuses anyways????

** Any idea on what to replace next ?


Any help / suggestion anything would be great!!! I am willing to try anything and order any other part and if you are in the Chicago area let me know.

I have an RCA D40W20 HDtv with the same 3d looking convergence problem. Is mine as easy to do as the Sony KP-51HW40 solution from 2 mnths ago?


All projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video or dead set) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. In some cases the TV will also not show any video. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D, wavy, or has a shadow or shadows
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.
