Samsung HCN653W - replacing convergence ICs

I'm fixing a Samsung HCN653W 65" rear projection TV. Right now, when pluged in the red LED blinks slowly on the front of the TV - pressing the power button has no effect.

I'm preparing to replace the convergence ICs, and they are STK392-040 - I have a pair of new STK392-150 ICs...can these be used? I know I have replaced STK392-110 ICs with the 150 part in the it the same for the 040 series parts where using the 150 parts is just installing an uprated part?

    Well, duh on me. Once I found my spare STK392-150's to compare to the 040's, its obvious they're different. So, is there an uprated part from the 040 that I should order to replace these?

    I have replaced the 2 STK392-040 convergence amplifier ICs, checked the resistors and solder joints on the convergence board and reinstalled. The TV powers up (power-on tone, CRTs turn on) for about 3-5s and then shuts off and the timer light blinks. Anyone resolved this already?

SOURCE: Location of the STK392-110

The convergence IC's are large 2x3 inch(about) black in color IC's that stand up against a metal heatsink on the main printed circuit board. They will have white lettering on them that will plain as day when you see them. Make sure you replace these IC's with the manufacturers replacements and not some cheap copy, if the IC's cost less the 15 bucks a pop, they are cheap subs. Also do not forget the heatsink compound on the back of the new replacement IC's before you reinstall them. Good Luck

If you are removing a defective chip, can you just cut the pins carefully with a wire cutter and later apply heat to pull them off?

SOURCE: 42H83 Convergence

Yes the convergence ICs need to be replaced, however so dont the six 1.8 ohm 1watt resistors as Toshiba recomends replacing those six resistors when the ICs are changed. You can get the 50H71 / 50H82 Convergence repair kit as the 42H83 is identical to the 50H71 series, so the kit will work for your model. Heres the link where you can get the kit.

The red convergence cannot be corrected

There are two ic that should be replaced in convergence. It is like doing your breaks on your car you should do both sides. the parts are only 30. dollars.there are differant kinds for each model
stk 392-150 or stk392-040 so on the part you need will be on the convergence .make sure you check the resistor around convergence ics if they are burned you have to replace them to.
a tv shop charges around 300.00 to fix this repair
good luck

Mixed colors and separation of colors

Common problem known as convergence. The most common reason is the failure of convergence ics. these ics fail all the time because there big and get fairly hot. there is a possiblity that it can be reconverged if the convergence cuircit is not damaged

Out of Focus

if you have no experience repairing TV sets your going to have to have a tech replace the convergence ICs they are soldered into place and will probably need to be readjusted when this is done. if you know how to work on tvs then replacing the STK type ics in a pair is whats needed Good Luck
