Question about Toshiba TP55H60 55" Rear Projection Television
I just picked up a 55H60 for free from a relative for my basement. Unfortunately the red is way off in comparison to the blue and green CRTs (mainly on the left side). I went through the convergence process in the user menu but can't get the red to adjust far enough. I was considering going into the service menu to see if I could pull it in from there. I don't have service menu experience with a Toshiba but have made many adjustments on my Sony RPTV. Is it possible to fix the red alignment via the service menu?
If the convergence adjustment is not moving the beam chances are the convergence IC(s) are defective. If you know how to solder and understand TV safety you may be able to fix it. With power disconnected remove the back. You should see two large heat sinks with large ICs (3 by 6 inches) with about 30 leads going through the circuit board. Numbers on the ICs should usually be something like STKxxx-xxx or some variation with x being a number. These ICs control the position of the three beams. If they go bad you can't adjust one or more beams. Replace them both as you don't want to get in there again in 3 months. Cost is not that much. http://www.tritronicsinc.com or http://www.partstore.com should have them at a reasonable price. Before replaceing the ICs look at the circuit board closly for cracked solder joints. Resoldering any bad joints might just solve your problems and avoid replacing the ICs. Good luck and remember safety.

I would concur with the other solutions. My green convergence went way out and could not be adjusted in the service menu. I replaced the STK392-110 ICs ($5.99 apiece from www.electronix.com) and it fixed the problem. I have a follow up question though: some other forums have said that I should have replaced all of the resistors connected to the ICs or my solution will be short lived. Others have said that I might have to replace the resistors if they had been burned by the failed chip. Should I open it back up and replace the resistors as well?

Maybe it's just me.. am I doing something wrong? How come discussions like this are around topics not related to the heading???? This is clearly a 'troubleshooting' topic under SONY GRAND WEGA KDF-60WF655!

Replace STK convergence IC's w/OEM or better parts.Senior tech soldering ability needed. Ex==Steel jumper wires feeding b+ to conv. IC's need resolder to prevent call-back.Also, best re-alignment done in service mode==consult service literature.

If the tin can module you are referring to is the hyper module, it is common to replace all 11 caps because the factory caps ****. Check for bridged solder connections at STK's search the forum at electromaniacs for 50h81 :)

SOURCE: Toshiba tp50h60 convergence
Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.
The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs. To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as Tv Repair Kits to get a repair kit with instructions. Here is there link.
They have put together complete kits for most models that include the parts, step by step photo instructions, repair assistance, etc.
