    OK...as of last night, I now have this very problem. I have been able to adjust the convergence, but I can't adjust enough to eliminate the problem. I would be interested in finding out more about how to fix this issue.

    Mine just wigged out today as I was watching it. All of the guns went out of alignment by a great margin and I cannot adjust them back with convergence. Everything was fine then poof, everything was out. Any thoughts?? Thanks. Terry

The convergence amp(s) most likly need to be chagned. If you know how to solder and use a meter I can help you complete this task. If you do not know how to do these things then you will need to call a repair man, he will run you somewhere from $300-$500 to do the repair. If you do it yourself you can get it done for under $100

I have a Mitsubishi WT-4211.The picture went to a 3D effect with a red outline.Is this a covergence problem?If so is there a repair kit?


Yes - there is a repair kit. Goto www.TvRepairKits.com

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 photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

Top left side of picture blur


You may have to clean the crt's and lenses and the mirror. Unit may need total convergence from the service menu. If image is blurred in only one area like the corner I would suggest NOT to adjust the electrical or mechanical focus.

Colors Misalinged


You have what is known as covergence problems. Ok to begin with. 1 Go into customer menus goto SETUP do you have the "CONVERGENCE" option. If you do not the the likelyhood is you have the fl231 fuse problem and if you can solder and get it i recomend it a simple repair. ok if you have that option then try going in and autoconvergening if that didnt work try manual the red and blue convergence. if in the manual red and blue the crosshair didnt move then you probably have convergence power board problem if only one moved or just move a up and down or left of right then it might be a amp board issue. the other problems it could need a simple factory alignment.

Severe covergence distortion


I will need the model number of your set in order to help you. It sounds like a samsung with bad convergence ICs. But let me know the model number and I can help you with repairing the problem.

Covergence problem


your set has indications of several problems. red green and blue. indcate convegence issue. the fact that the picture is concave is a indication of totall loss of covergence power supply. the convegence menu missing idicate loss of some voltages from what know as the flyback.AND SHUTDOWN. indicate further problems. generally when convergence fails ..not always the set wont shut down. it could be a simple issue but further trobleshooting would have to occur to narrow it down.

How to axces convergence mode.


covergence is a very common problem with big screens and the longest to work on and adjust back to a nice picture. its really an art to converge, that takes years of practice. accessing the convergence mode is usually found on the menu button on the remote or on the set. use the remote so you can stand back too see everything. good luck

Adjust color convergence automaticly


I hate to tell you but if the colors are not aligning the way they used to is because the set has developed a problem know as a convergence problem,you should be able to align the colors (red,Blue)but if they are not going in is because the covergence IC's are going bad,If you are familiar with electronic service you can do some of the work yourself but sometimes still does require the help of a servicer to do the aligments from the inside,if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance.
