Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

Sony KP-57ws500 57in rear projection

I ve seen this issue from other users. I have a red shadow on my screen and ive read that it is the convergence board, particularly the ic's. I have never soldered a circuit board, so im not sure i am comfortable doing this, even though i think i could. Is it easier to replace both boards, and if so where can i purchase them? And some instructions on doing so. Thanks Al

    Ok I undestand its more costly to do the boards, do you have the part numbers? I would like to see how much the boards cost, maybe in the long run it will be less stress on me if i just replace them.

    Thanks
    Al

Yes, you can do that but , boards are expensive ,its better to replace the ic's and may other resistors assosiate with to them. step by step folowing intructions may you can try only if you already have some tools. like soldering iron ,multimeter ,solder, and patience . hope this help you to make your decision, if you need part # let me know

Sony rear projection kp-577hw40, screen turns red after being on for 10 minutes


This model and some others had bad picture tubes that are no longer available---there is an option here.

If screen gets bright red, green, or blue set will shut down as it detects too much current being drawn.

Seen over 100 with this issue--what can be tried and usually will help is a physical adjustment inside the set.

No parts to replace and takes about 15 minutes to do.

I can tell you how if you want to know.

Red color halo/shadowing


can you post a pic of your screen to show the shadowing, as red usually isnt affected with coolant contamination it may be a convergence issue. A pic would help me be better able to help diagnose the problem.

Sounds like the convergence ic's need to be replaced or resoldered. Sometimes it can be a microfuse if you are lucky. But my question is if you hit the focus button up front does it make it thru the auto convergence? Let me know. Have a good one.

Red Shadow


UNDER THE FRONT DOOR PRESS THE BOTTOM BUTTON "FLASH FOCUS" AND SEE IF IT FIXES IT. IF NOT AND YOU SEEN RED DOUBLE OF THE IMAGE, THEN THE SET PROBABLY NEEDS THE CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT REPAIRED.
