Convergence Where is the convergence adjust menu? Where can I get the convergence IC?

  • dirty mike Nov 09, 2008

    The set I was working on was an HD52W67 for clarification. I have found that there is no convergence IC. The fl231 fuse link, located next to the fly back transformer, the middle of the three rectangular shaped boxes, was open. I initially soldered a single strand of stranded wire into the board which resolved the problem. so I got the fuse link RCA part# 259213 and replaced it. afterward the convergence came up on the setup menu where it had previously been missing. Thank you all for your assistance on this problem.

    These transistors where are they on the board? On top of the board are letters and on the right side are numbers. Can you give a detailed discription where they are?

Customer convergence is under setup in customer menu. if you do not have this you might have the "fl231 fuse problem. this set has no convergence ic.. uses a series of transistors

    there are three seprate boards that control convergence on this set. two sit above the main boards inside the set,. the one on top right is the convergence amplifer. the one on left is the convergence power supply. the convergence is controled by the green board ssb.

Colored lines at top and bottom when tv comes on and seeing double vision in different colors at all times

If your tv is not a DLP the problem is in the convergence, try to adjust it using your original remote control go to the setting menu then to the convergence section. Adjust the red and blue convergence. you should move the red and the blue in up, down and left, right if this color does not move far enough your convergence IC is already defective. Replacing this convergence IC will solve the problem. In locating this convergence IC you should remove the back cover of your unit but be sure to unplug it before doing this. This convergence IC is attached to a large aluminum plate, it is the heat sink, and it has a marking of stk- ### followed by numbers. You can try to pull it out using a soldering iron and soldering pump but be careful you may damage the board and cause much problem to your unit. Or you can contact a technician to do it for you and save you from stress good day and best regards.

There are red, blue and green lines going all the way across

it sounds like a convergence problem; in the customer menu there is an option to adjust it with the Sony remote---if either blue or red will not adjust in some direction---you have a bad IC---this set uses two STK-392-560 IC chips for convergence---both would need to be replaced and the set adjusted again. If this has been helpful give me a vote here---if you need more direct assistance---------

The convergence IC chips are available on Ebay from Surburban Electronics for less then 14 dollars for the pair.(plus shipping)
