This is usually a convergence problem and if you can solder, you may be able to resolve this yourself. Please post the make and model so I can give you more details about the parts required as well as instructions on how to resolve this.

Thanks,
Dan

    This set should have convergence ICs that are attached to a heatsink. These should be marked STKxxx. Since your model is a non-US model, I don't have the manual to give you more specifics. Try resoldering the pins on the ICs first (if you can solder). If that fails, replace the ICs. Please note that there are dangerous high voltages present inside the set even when unplugged.

You have poor contacts and or dry joints. Resoldering on the convergeance panel and powersupply/line timebase board will probably fix it.
It should take less than an hour in labour terms.

Borders bowed inward,blurred red,blue, & green


the next time it is not working go into the customer menu with remote and call up the convergence grid and look---there---if convergence is way off and or comes and goes---this set uses 2 Stk-392-570 ic's and it is quite common to see them become intermittant.

Double focused, red and green, bow in picture top and bottom


hi
You have a convergence problem
If the set has auto focus and will not complete its cycle.
The Auto focus module is bad, (expensive)
If it completes and the problem is still there.
Then check for bad conv. drivers (stk****) or cold solder joint on one or more of the 3 drivers pins.

Double check your work for errors such as solder bridges or incorrect resistor placement. Look carefully anywhere solder could have dripped or splattered to cause the bowing. If you entered the digital convergence mode to touch it up, you will have to re initialize the magic focus for it to function. Good luck

Out of focus


Most times when the stk's are shorted the 5 amp cp fuse on the power supply opens. Check all of the cp's by the stk's and on the power supply.
