A microchip controls the color convergence. There is no easy way to fix it. A new chip will be needed.

I HAVE A SD-532HD5 RED LIGHT STAY ON....IT USE TO TURN OFF BY ITSELF ONE DAY IT WENT OFF AND NEVER CAME BACK ON ......THERE IS A RED LIGHT ON THE POWER BOARD


This model and others close to it have all sorts of soldering problems on the power board----fixed a lot of them by removal of power board and aside from fuses solder the ENTIRE board--every connection---bad connections develop with age and heat.

Hi, this is a fairly common problem, what has happened is your Color & Convergence section is faulty usually fixable by replace both convergence ICs.

I HAVE A PIONEER 50' TV AND THE TV REPAIR MAN WORKED ON THE COLOR CONVERGENCE AND NOW HE SAYS THAT I HAVE TO FINE TUNE IT? the main problem was the blue line.


YOU need to have the original Pioneer remote to do this--I do not understand if someone fixed and you had the remote why he did not adjust it?

With the Pioneer remote you go into the customer menu and adjust convergence--most also have a TECH menu for this but you still need the remote and a code to get into this--REMOTES FOR THESE SETS ARE HARD TO FIND AND EXPENSIVE.

Let me know if you have questions--I am here to help.

Color ghosting or shadows


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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. 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,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with 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 - 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

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

Pioneer SD-P5185 Rear Projection has intermittent double vision


Sounds as though the output transistor(s) on the color convergence board are going bad or already have. If handy with Electronics; get service manual and check the emitter voltage.

Pioneer projection blurry picture


Sounds like you lost the converigence. Have you tried to realign the convergence through the user menu? Try that first and see what happens.

This fault happens with just about any tube type projection set. The convergence IC's simply need to be replaced. They are two black, 2"X3", stand up ICs that will start with the letters STK on the surface of them and are mounted up against a large metal heatsink. If you have the soldering skills this should not be so hard for you to do, but please if you do not have the skills or experience to replace these IC's call in a pro to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
