Question about Mitsubishi VS-60611 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Convergence board We have a Sony manufactured in 3/1993 , model # KPR53EXR15 big screen 52'. Had the convergence board repaired 4 years ago. Seems to have done out again. Was quoted $350 to repair. Can we repair this ourselves? Is it worth it or should be purchase a new tv? We have heard the new LCD tvs only last 5 years so if that is what we will get out of a $350 repair then that almost seems like the better bet. Any advice ? And...if we repair where do we get the parts and how is it done? Thanks a million!

Toshiba big screen Model TZ50V60 Convergence Issue-Chips Replaced


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. 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, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

The left side of the picture has red and green stripes and ghost images. The right side does not have this problem, but the picture is not quite right. The convergence chips were replaced two years ago and...


That sounds like the convergence problem I had about a year ago, and like you, I replaced the convergence chips and that fixed the problem. It's cheaper to replace the chips if you do it yourself, but maybe not if you send it out for repair. If you can find an exact replacement board, that would fix it too, but I wouldn't necessarily expect it to last longer. The advice I read on replacing the convergence chips in my rear projection TV was that they would last 2 or 3 years and then need replacing again. So you're within that range.

I have a GE 52 " rearprojection flat screen picture TV 4 years old. The color conveyance is off and it will not realign using the remote. Help!!


If the convergence option is still visible under the picture settings in the menu. Then the problem will usually be related to the convergence power supply board, which is the board on the far left which is suspended over the main chassis. You can get the convergence power supply board, or have yours repaired at www.tvrepairworld.com

Sony kp-51sw500


Everybody here seems to have basically the same problem so I will write a general fix for these Samsungs. First what you got is known as Convergence failure, A Ic or resistor, fuse or some other component has failed in the convergence circuit. So finding the service menu and trying to align the colors or spinning magnets on the CRT’s or a real bad idea of tipping a CRT or mirror would be the equitant of ripping the transmission out of your car because it had a flat tire. When the convergence fails no adjustment will bring it back, and if you do one of these stupid things then you have two problems. Now most of these Samsungs have an easily replicable board that all the convergence amplifiers are on. This can be found by removing the back and seeing if there is a board about 9 X 5 inches big and mounted to the CRT mounts, there will be 5 connector to this board. Now if your set does not have this board and instead has the two convergence Ic’s (these are about the size of a playing card and have the numbers STK392-040 on them) mount down on a board below and to the right ( this is known as the deflection board) this repair will not work for you. Instead you will need to component level repair the convergence circuit. But if you do have this separate convergence board the repair is fairly straight forward. Go to www.vancebaldwin.com or some other supplier and order BP95-00142E this is the convergence board. This board has been crossed several times through the years but this is the current version. Now once you get this board simply replace it making sure to get al the connector back in there original spot. The fire up the set and run Flash focus and for about 95% this will fix the set
