Thank you for your quick response. I have added my answers to your questions so I could cover them well.
>Can you adjust the convergence by the convergence menu without going
through the service menu? The settings through the convergence menu
should save automatically.
don't know where a convergence menu is. Is it on the TV? I go through
the process of putting in the code to get access to manually do it.
The auto convergence button does not change anything.
>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.
have not replaced the IC's and am not sure if I want to try that option
without some really good instructions. I don't have a problem trying to
replace the whole board if that makes it more likely for me to succeed.
>Let me know if you need further
assistance with this issue.
remember an option I saw to "send your board in" (as no one had any new
ones) to get fixed and they would send it back. Any ideas around that?

Re: Sony KP-51HW40 Convergence issue
First if the auto convergence isnt working you need new Ics . two of them.I am part owner of a site that sells the ICs and provide free tech support by way of online instant messaging and we include detailed instructions on how to do the repair yourself. We also have a service where you can send your board to us and we will install new ICs and all new Convergence resistors and ship the board back to you. Or we sell remanufactured boards. I would recomend replacing the two ICs as that would be the cheapest rout the ICs arent exspensive , but will require de-soldering and soldering in the new ones. Here is alink to the site. You can go and send them a request for information by clicking on the contact us link in the lower left info box. Someone will get back with you quickly just leave your model number and what you would like info on.

This kind of problem occurs due to failure of convergence output ICs in Sony KP-51HW40 tv. Replace convergence output ICs to solve tv problem.This set uses two of the STK-392-570 IC chips for this (convergence problem) Local tv repairman will do this job if you have no experience of electronics stuff repair.
