    We have replaced both ic chips but the red one is shot again. How do we know which ic chip controls the red or do we have to replace both again?

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

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

When moving the 51pw9363 will the color be affected by weather and movement, TV's color was good and then moved to the basement now the color is all messed up tried the convergence seem to have no effect


Usually temperature will not have a big affect but high humidity will. I would suspect the convergence amps have possibly developed loose solder joints from the move. They are mounted on heavy duty heat sinks that can move a lot and crack joints. Hard to say. Thanks for using fixya.

I see double pictures on top and bottom


Try adjusting the convergence. If it won't move see below- (or hitting Magic Focus for some Hitachi’s)

This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

You will need two STK392-120 Convergence ICs and about 4 6.8 ohm 1watt resistors. You can get replacement ICs and resistors at the following link and they provide free instalation instructions with pictures so you can do the job yourself. Here is the link.

Philips big screen projection tv


sounds like the Convergence ICs are getting ready to go. Does it appear as a outline almost 3D? If so its convergence if its more like a glowing halo its coolant in the blue CRT that needs changing.

No power to tv


You say didn't do anything, Like did you hear a squealing sound or did you see led lights on front of panel or just dead nothing? If dead and nothing then look for fuse blown in power supply if not then there maybe a small sound coming out of set when you press power if so then the power supply is trying to start up then you will have to look elsewhere like horizontal or convergence or vertical areas.
