Question about Televison & Video
I have been working on my daughter's rear projection TV convergence problem. Today I replaced the two convergence amplifier IC's, which fixed the initial problem of the blue being non-adjustable for targets 3, 6 and 9. Those dial in just fine now, as do all the other Convergence Adjustment 2 menu targets. However, on Convergence Adjustment 1 (white target in the center of the screen) the blue adjusts through about an inch range, although I cannot bring it far enough left to converge with the white target. I am out about 1/4'' to the right on the blue at the full left limit. The green is adjusted to align with the calibration marks on the screen frame, and the red convergence adjusts just fine. Is there a physical adjustment required to the blue CRT, or a sub-menu (serviceman adjustment) to bias that blue CRT centering further to the left? Also, on the Picture menu there is no Contrast adjustment. Where and/or how do I adjust contrast? The picture is plenty bright, but the contrast is too high and much of the fine detail is lost. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
Have you checked all of the resistors inthe convergence circuit as well? If not, check them for the correct impedance.. Remember, you have to pull one side of the resistor out of circuit to measure it correctly.
If all of the resistors are good, then you have to do a coarse convergence adjustment on the set through the service menu.. if you need the service manual for the convergence directions, I have one uploaded in the technicians corner of techlore.com
