Sony KP61HS10 Convergence issue

I have a Sony KP61HS10 that has a convergence issue. At first it was just when the unit was first turned on the issue was bad but as it warmed up everything aligned and looked great. It has steadily declined though and even leaving the TV on and auto adjusting the picture it now strains the eyes cause the convergence is off and makes it difficult to read the guide without minor discomfort.... the local service companies are wanting 79.95 to walk in the door plus $250 labor plus $100 parts to start...

Anyone know if it would just be 2 convergence IC's like I am reading and if so does anyone have a service manual for this unit?

Thanks in advance

Http:// for the schematics.

I alsp have this issue and have adjusted the convergence to get it correct when the unti warms up. For the first 10 minutes it is pretty far off. then slowly comes together. I am very interested in finding a solution, so please post one if you find it. we all seem to have tghe same issue.. maybe a cold solder join on the A or D board?

Red and Green colors are separated what would cause this?

It sounds like your color convergence is out. First try pressing your magic focus button. If the unit is still having convergence issues then chances are you need to replace the convergence ic's on the D broard and the 5 amp fuse links on the G board.

Sony KP61HS10 and timewarner digital cable box. Don't know which is the problem. Problem is a blue/white ghost on all channels. Tried unplug both units, tried flash focus. Shadow/ghost is now curved image...

I'm going to guess that these ghosts are of different colors too. This is most likely a convergence problem. Try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs first. If that fails, replace them.
These ICs are large and black, attached to a heatsink. They will be marked STKxxx.
Keep us posted.

Sony KP-51HW40 Convergence issue

Can you adjust the convergence by the convergence menu without going through the service menu? The settings through the convergence menu should save automatically. Have you replaced the convergence ICs? If so the settings should save, if not the D board will need to be replaced or at the very least rebuilt. Let me know if you need further assistance with this issue.
