Replacing convergence IC's in a PT-53WX42

I don't know how to disconnect the two leads that look like a spark plug wire from the board. That's the only thing keeping me from getting the board out.

Need to replace the convergence amps and any 2.2 ohm resistors in the return. That unit takes two STK392-110 Sanyo amps - but for greater reliability use STK392-150's and get them, from some place like ACME to be insured their not chineese knock-offs..

NO PICTURE


The leading cause of this type of failure is convergence.. Replace both convergence Ic's Stk392-110 and check all 2.2 ohm resistors in that circuit... This repair on this particular unit is fairly easy because the convergence amps are mounted in such a way to easily remove the left board for field servicing...
Have a great day!

Excelent description,whats happening is your set starts to show a blue convergence problem and is only correctable by replacing the blue convergence amplifier IC,the set has 3,one for each color,not all of them develope problems but they all develope loose conections,after the IC has been replaced there are adjustments to do.If you are familiar with tv service this information will give a place to start but if you are not too familar be safe and call a servicer to help you.Lets US know how it goes.
