Tip & How-To about Philips Magnavox 9P6034C 60" Rear Projection Television

How to change projection TV convergence ICs.

NOTE: THIS PROCEDURE DOES NOT APPLY TO RCA CHASSIS MODEL ITC222. FOR THAT MODEL CLICK HERE.


When the picture on your projection TV looks like 3D, the image bows in on all sides and red/green/blue are separated you have bad convergence ICs. They are located on the mainboard attached to a large aluminum heat sink. The heat sink could be shiny or black depending on the manufacturer. They are generally located near the rear of the High Voltage/Power supply board. The ICs are shaped like a trapezoid. I have a picture of one at the end of this tip. It is for identification purposes only, your actual part number may be different. Make sure you get the correct units.

Once you have located the ICs and heat sink look at the numbers printed on the ICs. The numbers on them should be of the form STK392-XXX. Note the number and go to http://www.encompass.com and order two. One is for horizontal and one is for vertical. You should also go to http://www.mcmelectronics.com and if you do not already own one order a good solder iron (40 watts with conical tip, temp control would be helpful), solder wick, heat sink compound, solder puller and solder.
You will need good soldering equipment and skills. Do not apply too much heat to the connections on the underside of the board or the lands will come off causing bigger problems. The secret to soldering/desoldering is to have a hot iron and concentrate on one part at a time. Keep good contact with the piece being soldered/unsoldered.

In addition you must have a clean tip to do a good job and get the soldering done in the shortest period of time. Use a good tip cleaner (looks like a kitchen scrubber) which can be purchased at the site I mentioned or a substitute you may have, steel wool or a damp cloth. All work about the same, the important part is that the tip is kept clean.

Sometimes you need to remove the heat sink to install the IC's leads due to the number, and difficulty, of getting them in the proper holes. This usually requires removing several screws from the bottom of the board or unsoldering the hold down tabs and possibly straigtening them to get them through the holes in the circuit board depending on your particular model. The ICs can be removed from the heat sinks by removing two hold down screws and prying them loose from the heat sink. This can sometimes take quite a bit of pressure.

Another problem to watch out for is bridging of the leads when resoldering the IC into the board. Before powering up the unit make absolutely certain that no leads have been soldered together or "bridged". Correct any issues. You do not need a large amount of solder on the leads. A nice round smooth connection is best. Look at some of the other solder joints to see what a good solder joint should look like.

If your eyes are like mine it would pay to purchase a pair of magnifying binoculars from the same site you can get the equipment from, http://www.mcmelectronics.com .

After replacing the ICs check all the resistors and microfuses in the area of the convergence ICs for opens. The fuses will look like resistors but no color code.

Remove the old ICs from the board and install the new ones. Be careful not to get the units too hot when installing the new ones. The heat sink compound goes on the back of the ICs in a thin coat to aid heat disapation. Don't over do it! Also clean all the old heat sink compound off the heat sink.

Once the ICs have been replaced and the unit is up and running you will need to set the convergence to align the beams. You should be familiar with this, if not the procedure should be outlined in your operations manual. If you lost your manual go to http://www.retrevo.com to get a new one for free.

If this was the only problem your unit should now look fine. While you have it apart you should clean the lenses and the mirror with a soft lint free cloth and window cleaner (no ammonia). Always spray the cloth, never spray inside the TV.

If the lines still will not converge you have a bad digital control box. Detailed intructions for removal and replacement of the digital box are located at my tip http://www.fixya.com/support/r4273935-replace_digital_convergence_box .

The screen keeps looking comcave and it looks almost 3D....you can see the blue green and red and if you shut it off and turn it back on it returns to normal....but after about two minutes it goes right back to the 3D look


I will need the model number. But if its a ITC222 chassis then try resoldering the flyback pins. The ITC222 can develope cracks on the flyback pins which causes sporadic convergence supply voltages. resoldering the flyback will often solve the issue.

Who does in home TV repair have an RCA D61W20 or can it be done m


The most obvious item which is causing your problem are the 220K ohm 1/4 watt resistors on the convergence power supply board. There are four of them RP10, RP11, RP12 amd RP13

First, I'm no expert, just a retired navy electronics tech.

I BELIEVE that your model can have one of two different chassis. If you have the Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} ITC222 chassis, then look at http://home.austin.rr.com/doctorjoe/ITC222align.pdf

for the alignment instructions.

SAFETY NOTE: While you should not be touching any enegergized components while performing this procedure, you will be working in the presence of and right next to EXTREMELY HIGH and DANGEROUS VOLTAGES that can exceed 30,000 Volts. If you're not familar with the electrical safety precautions for this type of procedure, please have a technician perform this task.

That said, hope I helped and best of luck.
