Sony KP 53v75 blue convergence will not adjust

Unit has ghosting of Blue and Yellow, after trying auto setup I'm able to adjust the Yellow but the blue will not adjust. I understand that somewhere within the unit you can adjust the convergence box, is this true and how do I get to it?

    All of a sudden the Blue just shifted way right when I wasn't looking and cannot adjust back to the left at all. It can adjust to the right further and up and down. Nice

My Akai PT 5598HDI has too much red and is dominant and convergence board IC's has been replaced. No significant result. On the convergence adjustment on for red is very focused in the center and very brigth and dim along the borders while blue is very dim and blurry. Focused has been adjusted. Your thought.

Thank you,
Rey

No, there is no such thing as a convergence box. There is a convergence board but it should only be touched by a qualified tech who knows what he is doing. If you suddenly see an arc of color on one or more sides of the picture, and you cannot correct it with the user menu, it means that one of your convergence IC's has burned out and needs to be replaced. A good tech can replace the IC (and fuses if needed) in-house in about an hour and a half. I charge $150 when I fix a set like that but shops in your area will vary so ask around.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as www.TvRepairKits.com

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. 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
  • 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.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

Ghosts


How old is ur tv...? Cos the wear & tear is the cause for this ghost appearance. The repair for this is only temporarily. It can not be eliminated completely.

Generally the blue ad yellow colour can be removed by a tool which is available with a tv technician. It is not very expensive to do this. Hoping to hear from you.

Thankyou
