Re: bad picture at the top and bottom

If you're not a professional TV repair person, the following information is good only for reference. If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. You will need to change the Stk convergence amplifier Ic's. You will need to check for the proper Ic, but it might be an Stk 392-110 (Q751&Q752). These Ic's fail sometimes due to lack of heat sink grease, and also because they expend lots of heat. Good luck

Your convergence ICs or convergence board is bad. More than likely it is the convergence ICs. About a $100 fix from a reputable repair shop. Hope this helps. If you need more info let me know.

Help with RCA projection TV P46812BL (chasis ptk195AA)

You have probably blown one of the convergence ICs. Effectively the easiest thing to do is replacing the whole convergence board, so that no soldering is involved.

Here you can buy a replacement convergence board, just select your model.

Let me know if you need further help.

The picture is showing a double image and is distored.

The problem you are refering to is more than likely a convergence problem. The convergence circuit in your tv is controlled by an IC (integrated circuit) stk392-110 and it makes the 3 colors (red, blue, green) line up/converge together to create a clear picture. You'll know when this part needs to be replaced because the picture you see is 3d looking and possibly bowed on the top or bottom or on the sides in any or all 3 colors.

Bowing of picture at top and bottom towards center.

Projection sets have two very common problems outlined below.

The first common problem is convergence

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. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. The TV can also shut down when the convergence starts to fail.

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,Mitsubishi,Zenith, RCA and others.

You can more info and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from TV Repair Kits using the link at the end of this article.

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

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Sony kp-53s35 bowed picture on top and bottom

Good day, scotty1980;
Scotty, welcome to 2008. Hold onto your wallet, the has a convergence problem. Which means that the TV's convergence IC's are more than likely bad. The average cost to repair is about $450.00. Unless you are electronically friendly, I would call an authorized service dealer for repair.
Good luck, big IRISH. PS; Hope this was helpful.
