Question about Sony KP-61V85 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

What is a convergence problem?

My sony kp61v80 just started having problems with the color blue. A blue "ghosting" seems to exist all the time. It also seems to get progressively worse on the right side of screen. It is a very noticeable problem, especially with text on the screen. This exists no matter what video source I use: satellite, DVD, videogame. This was a sudden onset problem. It worked fine yesterday. Is this a so-called "convergence" problem? If so, what is the solution? I have pressed the "flash focus" button on the TV itself. This seems to do some sort of alignment test, but it does not help the problem. If it is a "convergence problem, what is the solution, and what is a fair price to pay for the repair? In other words, is it so much that the cost so much that it puts me into a repair/replace quandry? This TV is only about 5 or 6 years old. If the problem is serviceable, are there more than 1 convergence parts to be replaced at the same time, so that I am not faced with the same problem (different color) a year from now.

Your problemo could be a so called convergence problem BUT it could also be a problem with the blkue tube or the focus block as well. If its convergence then YES for sure have the other ic(s) replaced at bthe same time cause if ones bad for sure the others going to have a problemo shortly. Now to the replacement?? I would say a fair price range to pay for a repair such as this would be about 300 to 400 buckeroons. This would also include Im hoping the repai, alighnment and cleaning of the sets optics. Alwat remeber theres alot of HI Voltage inside these sets even if they are unplugged, so be carefull!!!!!!!!!! Good Luck

I replaced the main lamp 6 months ago. Now I have blue on the right, yellow in the middle and normal color on the left. I also have a ghost image of tree branches on the whole screen.


Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Found it here:http://www.discount-merchant.com/SONY-1-758-484-22-p/1180916.htm Have a blessed one!

Ghost on the screen, blue in color


Did you check the six 3.15 amp pico fuses on the D board in line with the resistors and the two 5 amp picos on the G board? Usually one or more of the Picos will blow especially on the G board

I PLUG MY TV IN MODEL # KP61V80 I SEEN SMOKE COME FROM SMALL BLUE CERAMIC CAP BEHIND THE D TRANSISTOR PWER DO NOT COME ON LIGHT BLINK 4 TIME



You have a faulty power supply.
If the TV is smoking , do not turn it on anymore.
You need to replace either the whole power board, or the capacitor (s) that had blown.

How to get rid of 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.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
