Before you take the TV to a shop...or buy a repair kit, try to adjust the settings on the convergence screen. You can access this through the menu on the set, or through the remote. Select 'Factory Setting'. If they don't properly realign your colors, then you may need to have someone come and repair it. Only buy the kit if you are equipped to work on electronics.

Double images and colors are blurry .Blue,red and yellow wave coming up from the bottom of the screen on the lower left and fuzzy images this is a symptom is for busted convergence IC,you must replaced this IC in order that will works better again.STK 392-xxx ICs and it's associated resistor,this resistor automatically change value,can caused truoble even though you change the ICs.If you bring this to a service center they cost you $600 to $700,but if you buy the repair kit you can save more,don't wory it is very easy because there is intallation guide including in the repair kit. Feel free to ask whatever the result... click the link for sample picture guide step by step installation;

Hope this may help;

Come up 3d how to change


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Tv will turn on but no picture and sound.


If its still both picture and sound there is a few things.First your T.V. could just be mallicous and could be trying to kill you via annoyment.Not likely.The second is the cords in the back are mixed up.Usually they are in the colors of Red White and Yellow.If they are in the wrong analog slots then even though they are plugged in,they wont work.Or it could be age,frayed wires,or any number of things.Hope it helped.

NO SOUND FROM MY APEX GB5108 TV


I had the same problem with mine, it turned out to be a fried audio board. I simply used the audio outputs on the back of the tv to drive a new reciever with surround. Sound a heck of a lot better than the speakers built into the tv.

51 big screen apex tv, convergence or verticle IC?


If the lines are thin and close together running horizontally, it may be the vertical driver, but that usually takes out the resistor and sometimes the diode in the B+ for the vert. Also you must replace the caps that caused the problem in the first place.

Your Convergence is off. Go through the menue to the CONVERGENCE and follow the on screen instructions.

Start with the RED gun and align each cross point starting with the upper left corner.

You will be pulling the red to match the green.

If the television shuts down during this process, it will reset the convergence and you can try again.

After you get the red gun perfectly aligned with the green, start with the blue.

follow the on screen directs and don't forget to store.

Use the remote for these adjustments.

I hope that this helps..
