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