Convergence problems with model#9P6040C101!

Hello... My convergence on my model#9P6040C101.. The top and bottom of the screen is bowed in. Also I see all three colors and I see triple vision. I had a TV repairman take a look at it and he told me that convergence ic's were shot because they get very hot and quit working??? He never told me which ones they were and he wanted to charge me $350.00 to fix it. Wow! What I wanted to know which are the ones I need to replace, where can I order them at a very inexpensive price and can I replace them myself without a soldering tool??? Thank you, Cliff

They are large black colored IC's with the markings of STK392-xxx (xxx could be 110,120,150) There could be open resistors as well and you have to make sure if you do replace the IC's that you apply heat sink compond to the back of them otherwise they will prematurely fail.

The pic is off there is bowing at the top and


Picture becoming distorted at the top/bottom of the screen is due to the convergence circuit going bad, and is a common issue with big screen projection TVs.

The convergence circuits will need to be repaired, which will generally require some soldering and ordering new parts for ~$75. If you want to get a TV technician to repair it then you will probably be looking in the region of about $300 for a repair.

Here is a link to repair guide for a Mitsubishi TV. Obviously a different model, but the convergence circuits are generally the same for most makes/models - this will give you an idea of the work involved to fix it: http://www.techlore.com/article/22530/DIY-Repair-Replacing-Convergence-IC-s-on-a-Mitsubshi-TV-Set/

Bowing of picture at top and bottom towards center.


Projection sets have two very common problems outlined below.

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. The TV can also shut down when the convergence starts to fail.

Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith, RCA and others.


You can more info and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from TV Repair Kits using the link at the end of this article.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together convergence repair kits for most models.

The kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, etc. Everything you will need to do the repair yourself.

Bowed in at top and bottom and colors are separated


You have a convergence issue. First question in customer menu under setup do you have the convergence optioin? IF you DO NOT then chances are you have the fl231 problem. check under my profile in the tips and trick section. IF you do have the option try autoconvergence. if this fails(goes red screen then you might have a convergence power supply problem.

Help with RCA projection TV P46812BL (chasis ptk195AA)


You have probably blown one of the convergence ICs. Effectively the easiest thing to do is replacing the whole convergence board, so that no soldering is involved.

Here you can buy a replacement convergence board, just select your model.

Let me know if you need further help.

can you post a picture of your screen or send it to my email slinteriors@yahoo.com as it sounds like its just the convergence Ics and the 6.8 ohm resistors, but a pic would help me do a accurate diagfnosis.

Green bow tie, convergence not helping


Yes, your geometry correction has failed and you will need to seek qualified tech for help. You need what are called STKs and you should be able to get the job done inhome for under 300.00
