Your symptom sounds like at least one damaged convergence IC.


You are correct you can sometimes rework the solder connections on each of these IC’s, although, if the convergence does not fix itself from time to time, you most likely do not have a bad solder connection. You will have a faulty IC. I recommend to replace them both at the same time because the chips legs can fall off due to the heat of the IC.

Please be sure to remove all of the white heat sink compound on the heat sink and apply a even coating over the back of the new IC’s. You should also bolt them down before you solder them in so that you have them at the correct height.

There are two and sometimes three very large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. I believe that your set has two. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. I think that the IC numbers will be IC8001, 80002.


The IC’s are large and black, you cannot miss them. They will usually have an STKXXX-XXX number on them.


There are several schools of thought on the replacement of parts and I firmly believe that you get what you pay for, so don’t buy the cheapest IC’s that you can find. One company I worked for tried this and it only caused more work for the technicians, as we had to replace them with the more expensive ones in the end. I would think that you should be able to find these for around $60.00 each. If you can find the exact Hitachi part, or Sanyo, even though the numbers on the front are the same, and they look exactly like the $10,00 ones, they are better and more reliable.

I usually order my parts from Andrews Electronics in California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is http://www.andrewselectronics.com/welcome.aspx
And their phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.

You can also try http://www.tvrepairkits.com/ , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

My PJ506D Viewsonic projector is projecting an image with too much green. How can I adjust this?


You will have to go into the menu system and find the controls for the red, green and blue guns and adjust the red and blue guns to counter the green.

Atypically if this is an older projector and has seen a lot of use you will start to experience the degradation of luminescence in the tubes.

Resolution: If the adjustments do not resolve the color issue, you will need to have one or more guns replaced. The economics of this replacement point to a new projector.

Fix my line problem but red LED flashes five times


Hi Guys, Looks like your advise took care of the problem. I adjusted the power knobs for each of the RGB guns on my Sony 51 inch projection TV. The color looks great and I don't seem to have the blinking indicator light bugging me any more. I will be sure to suggest you folks to anyone with these type of technical questions.

GREAT JOB!!

The color on my Epson Powerlite S3 powerpoint projector is very purple; not the true colors at all. I have tried adjusting it using the color, tint, brightness, etc. adjustments but it never gets to the...


Two possible solutions:

1) The video mode is set to Component/RGB instead of VGA.

2) The cable you have may have a break inside of it.

Let me know if you find anything.
