Are you able to do a multipoint convergence adjustment in the convergence menu? Do the red and blue adjustments move in all four directions/ Let me know and I will try to assist you.If the anser is no to either problem you will need new convergence ICs and convergence resistors.

    Chances are that one or two of the 6.8 ohm 1watt convergence resistors have failed casng the convergence to be out. I wouldrecommend replacing all 12 of those resistor. You can get replacement 6.8 ohm 1watt convegenceresistors at the following link and they will send information on where the resistors are located.

Jvc I art pro double color pink and green


a model number and a better description might help here, like 3d looking?

Sep 03, 2012 | JVC Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Color is off showing green and pink lines


If picture looks 3D, one of the two STK-392-110 OR STK-392-150 CONVERGENCE chips is bad.

The total parts cost for this repair on the internet is less than 25 dollars.

The chips are Black in color--2 1/2 inches wide X 1 1/2 inches tall with 18 pins each--usually located as you look from the back of the set to the right side on either one large metal heat sink with fins or two smaller heat sinks side by side--THEY will have the STK number printed on them in white.

If you are able to do the repair yourself you can save the set and a lot of money--you need to be able to get at the chips and un-solder and remove them and replace them and solder them back in.

There are some other things you may need to check also-most of the time just the two chips need to be replaced and the set adjusted--sometimes there will be a damaged resistor near them----if you attempt this I can tell you what to look for.

Consider that most shops get at least 300 for this kind of repair--if you get someone to do it for you make sure they replace BOTH chips or you are going to have the same problem again in a short time.

LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR NEED DIRECTIONS---I am here to help people and do it here for free.

Pink and green color out of focus people have one green hand extended with another pink hand double exposed features. Tried to adjust the color convergence and it won't work and it is all out of line and...


The mirror that projects the image on the screen from the lights below is most likely out of alignment, this is a very delicate adjustment to make. If your not familure with doing this, it will need to go to a shop. I hope this helps, if you have any other questions please contact me. Good luck.

Samsung HCN4727W Rear Projection TV, green screen, audio works


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. 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,Akai2_bing.gif,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

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

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*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

Double picture and colors are neon green and pink


Your TV most likely has fone of two possible problems.

Problem #1 - Failure in the convergence circuits. ( common problem )

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


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

3dc9420.jpg
645fba6.jpg
0dcec37.jpg
Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

0667c5f.pngSOLUTION

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

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.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.

TV set after fluid change. Notice how bright the colors are now. Everthing looks crisp and sharp again.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Does the power light light up when power is pressed? Does it blink? If so how many times does it blink? Have you checked the fuse?
