Question about JVC AV-48WP30 48" Rear Projection Television

Endless convergence problem...

Hi all, I'm having a problem with my JVC av 48wp30 tv. I'm not a tech guy so I'll try to explain this as best i can. When I plug it in and hit the power button, it repeatedly tries to self-adjust the rgb colors. The menu/channel/volume buttons are unresponsive. I see the 9 crosses on the screen for about 1/2 a second at a time, the tv pauses for about 4 or 5 seconds and then displays the crosses again. I also noticed that the red and green appear to be fine, but the blue is way too low on top. Any ideas? I heard that I could replace stk392-110's with stk392-180's, instructions on how to do this would be great!

Re: Endless convergence problem...

If you are not a technical guy, you should leave this for the pros, as this will involve you getting a service manual, locating the TWO convergence IC's as you never replace just the one IC as if you do, you will be back inside the set, a few months later. You will need to get some heat sink compound and apply to the back of the convergence IC's before you install them. Just know how to solder well and you should have no problems. You also may still have a problem after you replace the IC's, as sometimes when these IC's go bad, it takes out feedback or return resistors, B+ feed resistors or fuses or circuit protectors. Good Luck, Oh and use only the proper IC's in the set that the service manual calls for.

JVC AV-48WP30 48 in. Rear... Problem

Your convergence I.C's ( integrated circuits ) Have failed. Replace Both I.C's with Stk392-150's. The unit is equipped with 110's. These are large IC's pn the convergence board located near the front of the unit. You need soldering/desoldering experience to do this job. I would recommend seeking professional assistance.

Remote LOST - need info on what button to press...JVC AV-48WP30

There might be some features that the universal remotes aren't able to do. To perform the convergence alignment you should have the original remote.
Do you have the user manual or service manual?
The service manual will explain this process better.

Convergence problem?

Not unless the Tv sneaking some kegerator juice while your not there??LOL It sounds like a Main b+ filter or possibly the convergence IC and is not user serviceable. With all the hi-voltage inside these sets its best for you and the set to call in a proffesional to do this type of repair. Sorry i couldnt assist you more with this repair.
