    basically my picture seems as though maybe some of the colors are either not working or to dim.when watching a movie that has a lot of dark sens,you just can not make it out enough to get the correct image.i compared watching a movie called the cave an on my PhillipsMagnavox i though there where a lot of sens that where suppose to be very dark,but not unvisitable.so i watch the same movie on another set and it looked to be a completely different movie.i hope i have given a description well enough to help you diagnose my T.V.correctly.i have had this T.V. for about 7 years and it has been the best i have ever owned.if i can get the color right i will use it until it just won't work anymore.i can't imagine any of the new model's bringing me more pleasure than i get from this one.

Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Toshiba tp50g90 projection tv, red flashing light won't turn on


FYI: WHOEVER told you 110 chips can be replaced with 120 chips is wrong.

Easy way at this point to way at this point to see if chips are the problem is to UNSOLDER AND REMOVE BOTH CHIPS. Make sure not shorted connections and power set up---set will function without the chips but look terrible.

Try Suburban Electronics for the correct chips----only safe replacement for them is the 150 chip----stk-392-110 and stk-392-120 are not interchangeable.

The blinking light indicates a short.

Tip

How to fix convergence problems for RCA chassis ITC222.


Your projection TV looks like you are watching 3D video and none of the colored beams are aligned. You go to the menu to set the convergence and find that the convergence adjustment menu is missing. What is causing this?

Basically you need three parts which will be installed in the area of the flyback transformer. An electrolytic capacitor, a fuse and a diode. This circuit supplies dc power for the convergence circuit and without it the convergence circuit will not work. Without convergence correction your unit will look like it is in 3D and you will have red and blue shadows around all text, etc.

You need to get a kit at http://www.tvrepairworld.com/rca_repair_kits . You want the one labeled ITC222 and ITC222A convergence option missing repair kit. It comes with very good instructions and appropriate schematics to make the repair possible by anyone. In addition there are videos available on the parts website to help with the repair.

This kit will fix the problem with the missing convergence menu but may not fix all the problems with the miss-convergence in the unit. If it does not solve all the problems go to my tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6396176-projection_tv_troubleshooting which will help with further troubleshooting. You could also have problems with the convergence board, which may have blown out the power supply for the circuit in the first place.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Where are the covergence controls in ws55809 tv located


All convergence adjustments on this set are done with the original remote control--you will find the CONVERGENCE in the customer menu---if set will not adjust there you have a circuit problem.

I have fixed hundreds of these sets--if it will not adjust let me know and I can tell you what is needed to fix it.

Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.

TV popped and turned off and won't come back on




If you have Hitachi model number 50UX58B, 60UX58B, 50UX58K, 60UX58K, 50SBX78B or 60SBX78B and you have the following symptoms you may want to grab a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kit that includes the parts and instructions to fix these models. This is a fairly common problem with the above model numbers. It is typically caused by a blown capacitor and pico fuse. Again, you can get a kit from the above address. 

Here are the symptoms...

Primary Symptom: No Audio or Video. Power light will come on briefly then shut off.
Other Possible Symptoms : The green LEDs on the circuit board light up for a few seconds then turn off.

Hope this helps,

Good Day, josey;

Hope you fixed TV by now but if not, try this; order KIT 10 from B&D ENTERPRISES, 1-800-458-6053.
Your problem is in the TV's convergence circuit. The KIT will tell what to do.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
