Verticle lines i have verticle lines across the whole screen. they are straight and evenly spaced.they are mostly red and green but they appear to change when the image is moving on the screen. they do not appear on inputs with nothing hooked to it.they also appear when using onboard tuner.i just had the red and green ic's replaced about a week ago for a convergance problem could this condition be related to these ic's? this tv is about 5 years old and i have had it repaired 4 times for convergance ic's.

Re: verticle lines

I am woundering if the repair folks did the proper job and used the right IC's as alot of NON authorized shops will use the cheap aftermarket repalcement ICs and not even use any new heat sink compound. 4 repairs in 5 years is very excessive! I would not have called the same shop(s) to do the repairs. Put on the test scren on the TV set and see if the convergence is off. If it is make the shop replace them again for free or ask for your money back. Man what a rippoff that is. Good Luck and keep us informed of your progress with the shop and the repair.

Problems with my Mitsubishi hd1080

If the Blue lines are blurs or shadows, then your Convergence IC's are going or gone bad.
I have the same TV - it will be 4yrs. old in Dec. Mine started with Blue lines & shadows, then Red, Blue, Green Shadows. This is caused from over heating. The Convergence IC's have to be replaced.
I have had 3 TV Repair shops all quote me a price from $350. to $400. to repair. They all said 4 years is the usual life time for these IC's.
Replace the STK932-110amps with STK394-250-E or STK392-150 for greater reliability.
Use only Original Replacement Parts, there are some cheaper but won't last and can't take the heat.
If you are a "do-it-yourselfer" here is a link with the directions and pics.
Good Luck!

51 big screen apex tv, convergence or verticle IC?

If the lines are thin and close together running horizontally, it may be the vertical driver, but that usually takes out the resistor and sometimes the diode in the B+ for the vert. Also you must replace the caps that caused the problem in the first place.

This sounds like you may have bad picture tubes. Most likely the green and red tubes. You would have to have them replaced and realigned. I would call a Sony ASC and get an estimate to verify this. An onsite service call could verify if this is what's causing your problem.

HCM4215W Green convergence problem

Hi Greg,
Sounds like you have a bad convergence chip in the convergence board. Unfortunatly, about 80% of the rear projection sets I work on have this similar problem. I suggest that you change both chips ( there are 2 of the same ) and remember to use heat sink compound as this is why you not have the problem ( excessive heat destoys electronic components). Good Luck

57" Toshiba with wavy green/red lines "good overall picture"

Appears to be a convergence problem, the chips are located on large aluminum heat sinks. Check near the 2 or 3, STK IC's for + and - voltage usually 20 to 25vdc. If 1 or both are missing, check microfuses. They should both be close to equal in voltage reading, if not, turn set off after it has been on for 10 minutes, feel the heat sinks at each IC,if one is hotter than the other, replace both IC's or all 3 if it has them. Now check the small low ohmage resisters in and around the STK IC's and you will most likely find a few burnt or discolored and have changed in value, replace these or the new chips installed will self destruct.
