    We've had our Sony KP-61HS10 for about 5 years now, and all of a sudden the green projector has gone bad as shown in the picture below. It holds convegence across most of the TV except in the upper left corner.

    I've tried Flash Focus, resetting the TV, and manual convergence, but nothing makes any changes.

    Any idea on what might need to be replaced?
    The circuit board controlling the green projector, possibly?
    Ballpark estimate on repair cost?

    Hey Paul,

    I got a broken image on the pic above so not sure how it looks.

    I have a KP57WS510 ( a three year old now). I had some blue problem where the white bleads into blue etc. Luckily I had taken an extended warranty on my TV when I bought it in local BB. The engineer came and looked at it and said it is the Blue Gun that is gone. So they replaced it free of cost.
    What he told me (I did not trust the guy much since he did a shitty job and had to call another engineer before getting a permanent fix) was it cost 300-400 bucks. Not sure if it is that expensive.

    Hope this helps....

    Greetings

    Your convergence board is gone ... you need to get that replaced.

    Ah ... convergence board ... that sounds like it could be it.
    Does each projector have a convergence board?
    Or is there just one that controls all 3 lenses?

    I'm a little surprised that just one color has gone goofy.

    Here's the link to the image ...

    the convergence board usually handles all three guns.
