Need a convergence board for the tv and is it worth it to fix or not what is coast of the board

You need to determine if the set had a good picture before the convergence problem began. In other words is the picture bright enough and did it have good color. Most rear projection sets this day and time are all usually having their CRT's to be weak due to age. This type of rear projection set is being no longer made. However, if the picture was good then you will have to change the convergence IC's and maybe a resistor. This set takes two STK392-110 but is recommended to replace with STK392-150. These chips have to be unsoldered and soldered new one in. Each has 18 pins soldered to the board. You must have good soldering and unsoldering experience to do this. Sometimes a resistor will be open in the circuit as well and must be replaced. Part number for the digital convergence board is CS00452 and my supplier Encompass mentions it but none in stock for $250.90. It is likely you will NOT find the board.

Yes is is your convergence IC's. One has gone bad, but consider replacing both of them because if one has gone bad then the other is not far behind. They are located on the middle board of your set. They are mounted on a large heatsink, the part # should be STK-392-040. Replace these and your set will work fine again.

Toshiba TP48C90 Convergence (replaced ICs, worked for 2 days)

Well, my thought is that there are a ton of knock off generic convergence IC's out there that usually hold up as long as yours did. Professionals like me will only use Sanyo original STK's. The counterfeit STK's out there are everywhere. Do some research on the web to locate Sanyo originals, they are out there.
