SOURCE: I get a red band on the left side, and there is a

If it is Mitsubishi WT-42313 IT USES two of the STK-394-250 CONVERGENCE chips.

If 3d both will need to be replaced and the set adjusted. Sometimes there will also be a bad resistor around them that gets taken out--easy to find.

You can buy a pair of the chips on Ebay for less than 20 dollars--total parts cost should be under 30 dollars.

If you cannot do the repair yourself--shop around your area---most shops are going to charge 300 or more for this repair.

This is a very common problem on projection sets--the heat gets one of the chips after 5-8 years and it fails.

Let me know if you have questions or need advice. I am here to help people---If this information helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

SOURCE: The picture is distorted. Looks like it is in 3D.

If you go into the customer menu and select convergence and it is skewed you need to remove the light box and replace both of the STK-392-110 CONVERGENCE IC chips this set uses.

I HAVE START TO FINISH, STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS REPAIR IN THIS SET--I can post them here if you think you or someone you know can do the repair.

Most shops get 300 or more for this repair--if you buy the chips on Ebay (I can tell you the seller to look for there) they and any other parts should total under 30 dollars. The fact that the set is still coming on means most likely just the two chips need to be replaced and the set adjusted with the Panasonic remote for this set.

If you have questions or want the instructions rate this solution and let me know and I will post them here---I do this here for FREE.

Bowed red green lines at top screen. picture looks like it in 3d.


All projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video or dead set) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. In some cases the TV will also not show any video. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D, wavy, or has a shadow or shadows
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.
