Question about Orion STV2763 27" TV

8 Answers

I have a 2003 model Studio series projection screen .model no 42hd43a ,hdtv 1080i monitor

My parents gave me this tv to see if I could get it working again .Ok i tried convergence. I got the red one to work but when i tried the blue it doesn't want to move . The top of screen looks like a wave and the bottom curves down on the right side .I do not know much about big screens so any help would be apreciated. I cant even find this type of tv on the net so I know it's going to be hard to fix. When i got the red to line up with the blue the picture was clear but still went up and down at the top and bottom. so I think if I can get the blue to move it will fix it.

    I have the same TV I bet they got the TV with the new modular home. I have problems getting my convergence to work as well but only on 1080. 480 will work fine. The blue is off on 1080. I can move them manualy but not quite enough. Also the corners are a bit off. Let me know if you had any luck with this. I think my next line of tries will be to actually go into the tv and adjust the individual ones...not sure.

    I have the same TV as well. The convergance went haywire and I don't even have the original remote. Is Orion the manufacturer and if not, who is the actual manufacturer?

  • johnrich Dec 09, 2007

    I also have the same problem and mine came as part of the "entertainer package" when I purchased my modular home. There is a blue shadow. I have tried to adjust the convergence but nothing seems to work. I've called a couple repair places but none will even look at it because they've never heard of the brand Studio Series. I've searched the internet for the name, but didn't find anything. I also search for the address of the company that is on the back, but haven't found anything there.

    All my wife asked for for Christmas was to get the tv fixed and I can't figure it out myself or find anyone who will even look at it. If anyone knows if there is another manufacturer name or has any ideas on how to fix it, it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Have same issue as another poster. Unit will turn on and act as though it is powering on, but there is no picture on the screen. It then shuts off. Nothing ever comes on the screen.

  • informer Jun 08, 2008

    I have the same problem and I called the place I bought my home. They advised to contact the manufacture of the Fleetwood Homes. Fleetwood advised me to contact the manufacture of Studio Series in Knoxville Tn. at 1-865-694-2704 ext.116 and speek to a Kelly Green. I did all this and found it may be cheeper to buy a new one. Ms. Green will advise you where the nearest repair shop is located. She will also advise the price of a new TV set. This set is a Samsung, Model # HCN4226W for repair purposes.

I have the same model of Studio Series (42HD43A). All the descriptions everyone is getting is the same problem I ran into a little over two years ago. The solution is to replace the convergence board on the set. Then run the perfect picture. Total time of repair, less than 30 minutes. The tricky part is getting the board in the first place. By the way, mine just went out again tonight. On average, these boards only last 2-3 years.

    my daughter is having the same problems with her Studio Series. sounds to me like they need to be sending out some refunds !!!!!!!!!


First off this TV is a Samsung, apperently many Samsung DLP's have this issue. Not the plasmas, but more in the DLP realm. If you take off the back of the tv on the bottom left side you will see a board, with 2 large IC chips. The model number on the chips are STA-XXXX. Not sure what the numbers on them are biggest IC's I have ever seen. Other than some PIC microprocessors. These chips are the likely canidate, as they control the convergance. The board they are attached have plugs labeled Red Green and Blue. With the wires leading to the red green and blue projectors. I got my tv for free from a friend, and it has had the whole convergance board replaced. Unfortunatly this did not work for them hence why it became mine. I figured having a degree this would be an easy fix. Blue convergance is adjustable, my Red convergance is locked (will not move). And the green is non adjustable from the factory. Unless there is a remote code that will make it adjustable. So I moved on to projector's themselves figuring the would be manual adjustments on them. And there is, 4 adjustments to be exact 2 of them fine adjustments and 2 of them coarse. If you look closely near the base of each projection tube by the circuit board you will see tabs that you can move left and right in a circular fashion around what appears to be the cathode tube for each of the color projection units. 2 tabs on top (metal tabs) are fine and the 2 lower are plastic and encompass the rough adjustment. The lower have a type of screw lock on them that has to be loosend before the rough adjustment can be moved. This is as far as I have gotten. This does take 2 people, 1 to turn the tabs and another to watch if the convergance is lining up. It also takes some skill a little turn make alot of difference. 3rd it takes some balls you could be shocked, or really mess up the tv. In searching this problem I have found that some times replacing the IC's works. And as with my tv replacing the whole board did not work. This is what I have asessed so far I will post again if and when I can determine what the problem and how to fix it is.

Your convergence ICs sound like they went. Replace them and also check resistors around the ICs

How do I adjust the convergence properties on an RCA rear projection tv?

Normally on the RCA rear projection TV's you would bring up your menu and choose the Setup menu, then press OK on the remote. That menu would then have Convergence as a choice. Once that was chosen the next menu would give you the choice of either letting the TV run it's own Autoconvergence program, or you would select either Red or Blue convergence.

Choosing Red Convergence would bring up a Yellow cross-hair in the middle of the screen. If the Convergence was not correct you would see separate Green and Red cross-hairs. Once they were perfectly aligned you would again see one Yellow cross-hair.

Choosing Blue Convergence would bring up a Blue cross-hair in the center of the screen. If the alignment was out you would see 2 Blue cross-hairs. Using the Up and Down and Left and Right cursor keys you would adjust the alignment until a single solid Blue cross-hair was in the center of the screen.

I stumbled across a tutorial on fixing the convergence for my Sony KP-46WT510 a while ago, and now I can't find it again! Does anyone know where I can find that tutorial or one similar to it? We've been...

Here is a walk through on how to set your convergence.

A quick and easy way to try and let the TV realign the convergence try this...

1) Turn on the TV and tune to a channel and let it warm up for about a half an hour to let everything settle into its normal operating mode.

2) Press the Flash Focus button on the original TV remote. A cross pattern will show on the screen and the process is complete when the cross turns white and the TV returns to the program you were watching.

3) Do not press any other buttons until this process has completed.

If this does not adjust it enough you can adjust the convergence manually as follows:

1) Press the menu button on the original TV remote.

2) Use the arrow keys on the remote to highlight setup and press + button to select.

3) Use arrow keys to select convergence and press + button to select.

4) A pattern of white crosses appears, with a yellow [ ] around one of the
crosses. Aligned crosses (which do not need adjustment) look white and
have little or no red or blue showing. Crosses that are not aligned show
red or blue shades beyond their edges.

5) Use the arrow keys to move the [ ] to a cross that is not aligned. ***Note: start with crosses in the middle and work outward ****
*** TIP: Set the alignment while about 5 feet from TV for better results ****

6) Press the + button to select the cross and the [ ] will turn red indicating it is ready to adjust the Red convergence.

7) Use the arrow keys to move the red cross on top of the white one or at least as close as you can get it.

8) Once the Red is aligned press the + key again and the [ ] will turn blue. This indicates it is now ready to adjust the blue convergence.

9) Use the arrow keys to move the blue cross on top of the white one or at least as close as you can get it.

10) Once you have aligned the blue cross press the + button again and the [ ] should turn yellow.

11) Repeat steps 5 through 10 until all the crosses are aligned. To exit back to regular programming press the menu button on the remote.

Most likely bad convergence amplifiers. They are soldered in components.They can become intimentent and the lines come and go, usually red or blue.

Colors Misalinged

You have what is known as covergence problems. Ok to begin with. 1 Go into customer menus goto SETUP do you have the "CONVERGENCE" option. If you do not the the likelyhood is you have the fl231 fuse problem and if you can solder and get it i recomend it a simple repair. ok if you have that option then try going in and autoconvergening if that didnt work try manual the red and blue convergence. if in the manual red and blue the crosshair didnt move then you probably have convergence power board problem if only one moved or just move a up and down or left of right then it might be a amp board issue. the other problems it could need a simple factory alignment.

Having problems with projection image on tv

Ok let me get started by saying this is What is known as CONVERGENCE Your projection tv has 3 projection tubes Red Green and Blue. They all have to hit the same spot to create different colors they all have to come to a CONVergence as it were. Someone mentioned deguessing this only works with crt type tvs... Ok i see these set very frequently at the shop, I need to first ask you a few questions. FIrst one.. Can you go into customer setup menu. When you do can you see a option called "convergence" Very important if you do not see this option it might be a good thing. there is a common problem with these sets FL231 it is a very small special fuse that blowns due to poor connections.. IF you know how to solder and can get this fuse it will save you hundreds of dollars. Now if you do see this option then sorry the troubleshooting continues,,, next go into this option there should be 3 options autoconvergence red convergence and blue convergence first try auto convergence the screen should go black and start flashing little red blue and green boxes aroung the edge of screen. this takes a few minutes and hopefully it will end in a full green screen, if it ends in red then next try manual red and blue options u get a cross in center and when you up and down left and right it should move the red or blue cross with it.If it does move then it might need a service convergence. if it doesnt then you have trouble with ether what is known as convergence power supply or convergence amp board. and at this point i would suggest a tech. WARNING THIS SET GENERATES DANGEROUS VOLTAGES AND RETAINS THESE EVEN WITH THE SET UNPLUGED. I do not recomend inexperience person to remove the back cover of this set. BOy I did not realize i could get so long winded(lol) just be carefull and good luck and if you need any help just get back with me ill try to be reponsive

I would change both ICs STK392-110 and also the 3.3ohm 1 watt resistors and the 1.8 ohm 1 watt you would need 2 of each resistor. Then your convergence would be new again. You can get replacement ICs and resistors at the following link with free shipping and free instalation instructions with pictures.

Ok, so I Replaced stk-392-110 (2) and......

Check the resistors in the red convergence circuit right next to the Ics you will need to lift one side of the resistor out of circuit to acurately check them but usually one or two resistors will be opened when the ICs go out

Sounds like you  accidentally "set" the parental lock while you were sleeping.

Try this trick: (may or may not work)

aim the remote at the TV "IR sensor", hold down "display button" on the remote for 10 seconds to erase or clear the password.

"IF" this works go into the menu and "TURN OFF" parental control.
