You may have jarred the sockets of the red and blue loose on the red and blue picture tubes. Especially if the picture was good before the fall

Strange convergence problem on my Philips projection TV

The only real test is to try to adjust the convergence for each color...Red and Blue...If you cant move both colors in all directions - up - down - left - right...then your Tv has a convergence problem. Try in both 480 and 1080...if it can't be adjusted - replace the parts. I just did mine the other day

Red blue green bowed looks like 3d no converg. menu.........

Your TV most likely has one or more 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.
Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site 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.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

KP-61HS30 Sony TV turn pink and green text is bowed


Check out CONVERGENCE GALLERY . If you see your symptoms you have a problem in your convergence amplifier circuits. Typical Sony Convergence repair requires disassembly for replacement of 2 ICs, sometimes a fuse or 2, then TV is like new.

It is much more complicated than changing batteries on your remote. Many consumers try unsuccessfully to do a convergence repair. I recommend finding someone competent to do it for a reasonable price. Typical repair shop charges may be from $400 to $650.

If you are in the Calgary area, call me. More reasonable rates.

the convergence board has nothing to do with tuning of tv, the convergence board put three colour gun (red, green, blue) to work with each other, else you get three image, of red , green,  blue or mixture of all as seperate image, the convergence board for american tv and Australian tv is possibly the same what you check to see the board  part number is the same you possibly need to see if the convergence board has got the memory i.c. if that is the case, you need to tune you t.v reset the channel etc good luck.
need more help let me know.

My red and green colors separated

You have to go into your menu and into setup then look for convergence, don't know exactly where since the TV isn't in fornt of me. But once you get there, there should be a bund of "+" all the ones thare are in color you need to change to white. Depending on the TV you would use our left or right arrow keys, enter or ok. Hope this helps.
