Question about Panasonic PT-51HX42 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Samsung:pcl4515r tv had a bad convergence.so i put 2 new convergence ic chips in ,change 2 low ohm resistors.also change pico fuse. turn set on ,i went into menu and set up the convergence, i could adjust the red color ,but the blue didn't move when i adjusted.please help me.the pic on the screen also bow in top and bottom.

You may still one more resistor opened , samsung most of the time its 2 low ohms but can be 3 it will be same value as other 2. I think they are 2.7ohms or 3.9 How to Enter Service Menu for convergence Turn TV off Press Mute 1-8-2-power now you should be in convergence use vol- and vol+ to select an item Use mute and menu to adjust when done Press ADD to save adjustments made.

Mitsubishi convergence issue


First is consider what the issue is: nothing moves convergence wise or only one color etc.

Also follow if needed the voltages from the pico fuses involved---one will be a negative voltage and the other a positive one--follow them from the diodes for each voltage to the chips---"Got Voltages?"

Convergence Resistors keep burning up


Some simple advice---if resistors are smoking one of the chips is shorted----The set has two voltages that go to them--one a positive voltage and one a negative voltage.

If either chip is shorted you can replace the resistors all year and not get anything. The resistors are protection in case one or both chips short----

Remove all old heat grease and install two new chips and replace the resistors at the same time.

Note that the set may have pico fuses on the power board also.

I replaced my convergence chips and I still have a convergence problem. Its not as bad but I still cant line up the blue convergence cross exactly


Sounds like your over half way there lol..
You now need to check the resistors positioned near the convergence ic's. They are your likely problem and go bad often when the ic's fail.

They are normally about 2watt and the values will vary but normally are like .10 ohms to 1 ohm.
I cant find a schematic to give you the exact values and locations but if these resistors measure off value at all you need to replace them with the exact value of the originals.

Heres a link to resistor color code guides just in case the value numbers are not printed on the resistors

Good Luck!!!

The colors are distorted and there is triple images


Hi,
triple images show failure of convergence out ICs in TV, these are two big black ICs mounted with aluminum heat sink on D board, replace these ICs with same number STK392-560 and problem in your Sony KP-46WT510 will be solved.
Required ICs are available in Part Store.
Let me know any further question, if any.
Thanks.

Convergence parts? What are the specific pico fuses and resistors


There are six 3.15 amp picos use 3.5 amp when replacing and there are two 5 amp picos on the G board the resistors if needed are 4.7 ohm 1/2watt

How to replace the converge ic


Your convergence IC's have gone bad. There are 2 of them, you should go ahead and change both while you have it apart..

These IC's operate at a very high temp, and usually only last 4-5 years.
If you remove the back of the set, you will want to look for the BIGGEST heatsink in there, on that heatsink, you will see 2 lage IC's , probably STK392-110, or STK392-120's or something close...regardless - you can go on ebay to order the new ones, but MAKE SURE they are Genuine SANYO IC's and not counterfiet cheapies. the cheap ones may last 2 years, or only last 2 minutes..
You will also need some "Heat transfer paste" - you can pick this up at radio shack.

Once you remove the old IC's, using a solder ****** (radio shack will have this as well...) test all the large resistors near them.. pull one side of the resistor out of the board so you can check it out of circuit. they will usually have the value in Ohms, printed directly on the resistor, but you may have to use the resistor color code to find out what value they are....However, usually if there is any damage, the resistor will look like it has been very HOT or fried. replace the IC's and any bad resistors, and you should be good to go.

If after replacing the IC's and any defective resistors, the convergence is still bad, make sure to use a multimeter to check ALL fuses on the boards, --- sometimes when the IC's go, they will take out a fuse to the convergence power supply. If you find any bad fuses, replace them accordingly!

If this STILL doesnt make it look right, you will need to find out how to get into service mode and do a coarse convergence adjustment. This information can be found in the Service manual for your set. If you dont have one you can download it at manualuniverse.com


Hope that helps!

Ck low ohm resistors 3.9 omh and pico fuses they look like resistors but they are green or yellow 5amps, 6amps,sometimes after replacing STKs there is bad resistors or open pico fuses.

Sony kp 51ws510 convergence problem


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 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

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 www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Samsung Rear Projection HD tv IC convergence green only messed up now. Help please


To check the pico fuses you're merely testing for continuity. If you get an infinate reading you're in good shape - if it doesn't budge the meter the fuse is open... That's a really easy set to work on for convergence problems - the convergence board is easily removed..
Another cause for mis-alignment like that are the youke return resistors... There are several out front of the convergence amps that may have changed in value. They are 3.9 ohm - 2w resistors and will look identical to Rz123 and Rz124 (same banding). For those simply select a low ohm setting on the meter and check to see if any of them have some way low or way high reading...
Need anything else just ask...
