When you try to turn the tv on, all you get is a blinking red light, if you unplug for awhile, sometime it will come on.


Symptom: tv turns on, tv clicks once, red light comes on. Then, tv either works for a while, followed by a click, no video, normal sound and flashing red light; or, tv immediately clicks, no video, no sound, red light flashes. If that is the problem, you need to replace the convergence ICs. I had to do this twice. The two convergence ICs are mounted on palm-sized aluminum heat sinks. The heat sinks are soldered to the main circuit board. There are 4 pins soldered to the board for each heat sink, and 18 pins soldered to the board for each IC. Some of the heat sink pins are a bit difficult to desolder. The pins for the ICs are not difficult to desolder, but you must be careful not to overheat them. The heat sink and the IC come out as a unit, after all pins are desoldered. The IC is screwed to the heat sink. The correct replacement IC is a Sanyo STK392-110. I got mine from B&D Enterprises. They were not expensive. The new ICs need to be mounted to the heat sink with a heat transfer paste. I used Arctic Silver from my computer processor heat sink. Installation of the heat sink/IC assembly is a bit tricky, since you have to align all 18 IC pins and the 4 heat sink pins. When all the pins are visible through the holes in the circuit board, resolder everything. The TV should now work. Be sure to replace both ICs. My first repair was done by a technician, who obviously only replaced one. That repair only lasted a couple years, before the problem returned.

Television has double images like 3D, and bottom half of screen has a concaved image.


Hi,
Please replace convergence ICs in tv, there are two big black ICs that has number STK392-110 mounted with big aluminum heat sink, replacement these ICs will solve your tv problem. Also check big resistor nearby these convergence ICs and replace if found burn mark or color faded.
On circuit board, IC location number is IC7001 and IC7002
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

I have a 53 inch hitachi ultravision #53UDX10B Its out of focus and when you press the magic focus button it trys then pops up with the # 4 in the corner is this a convergence problem or what ?


Yes, you have a convergence failure. Usually requires replacement of 2 X STK ICs and any burnt resistors associated with the function that is faulty.

Look at the user menu and compare with images on our Convergence Gallery. Try to adjust in the convergence adjust menu. Identify the functions that do not work and make note. When you replace the ICs, pay special attention to the low ohm resistors for the non-working function. They will be located near the colored plug associated with the non-working function. If red vertical will not adjust, check resistors near the red plug.

There are many posts and websites that offer "new and improved Convergence IC substitutes. My advice is to use the original part numbers and replace any burnt resistors with original values. Many ICs purchased on the Internet are very poor quality and do not work. Many users get substitute replacement ICs and never get their TVs working again.

If you have other electronics repair experience, this job may be done with some chance of success. If you have no experience, there are many secondary problems that can and usually do appear. Determining how to fix the secondary faults and how to correctly align the TV is difficult without prior convergence repair experience.

Some of the common problems encountered are:
1. Poor solder techniques, resulting in damaged PC boards or poor solder connections.
2. Poor quality or wrong parts installed and recognizing this problem.
3. Resistors open or burnt. Some resistors are weakened by the initial faulty IC. Replacing with a "good" IC and starting the TV causes the weakened resistors to burn up. IC may be ok but there are one or more open resistors that measured ok when ICs were being replaced.
4. Wrong ICs used, causing resistors to burn up.
5. Resistors that measure normal and become faulty when heated by current flow.
6. Recognizing that convergence circuit is repaired correctly and alignment is needed.
7. Major alignment in service menu required because data is corrupted by multiple tries of magic focus or manual adjustment while faulty circuit conditions exist.
8. Major alignment required because user adjusted centering rings or physically changed mechanical focus adjustment, then mis-adjusted convergence settings trying to correct mechanical alignment faults.
9. User has not connected plugs and connectors correctly and caused secondary damage or mis-alignment trying to correct secondary issue.

Physically replacing the ICs may appear simple but recognizing if a fault still exists or if correct repair is required causes many attempts at repair to fail. Keep it simple. Replace with good quality original part numbers, measure suspect resistors and adjust only what is necessary.

There are only 3 things to fix, IC failure, resistor failure and user induced secondary faults. Data processor and memory is bulletproof.

Tv turned itself off. turn power back on, picture


Your TV is experiencing a convergence issue as indicated by the 3 blinks. The only way to fix this is replacing the convergence ICs. It is not a hard task to replace these ICs. You just need to know how to solder and work on printed circuit boards.

The convergence ICs are mounted on a large heat sink and are marked with codes starting with the letters STK and there are two of them. You need to replace both.

Look for the heat sink with two ICs mounted on it and check the markings.

Once found, cut the IC legs with a small side cutter and unscrew it from the heat sink. Remove the legs left soldered on the board.

Take note of the IC markings for ordering the right part and how it was installed. Don't forget to buy along with the IC a thermal compound.

Check the pico fuses on the same board. Most likely you will find a blown one. These fuses look very much like a resistor, not like the usual transparent fuse, and usually yellow.

Once you have the replacement ICs, put it on the board in the same way as it was installed before. Make sure the screw holes are aligned before soldering the legs into the board.

Put a reasonable amount of thermal grease/compound between the ICs and the heat sink and fix them with the screws.

Double check the board for any splash of solders that might cause a short circuit and damage the board.

Sony kp 46wt500 has 3d screen what might the problem be?


If convergence out ICs got defective then TV shows that kind of picture.
Replace IC8001 and IC8002 on D Board, both big black ICs are mounted on aluminum heat sink and number STK392-560 would be written on it.
Required ICs are available in Part Store, click that link to see an image of IC and price info.
If you are not comfortable with soldering parts in circuit board, call local tv tech to replace it.
Thanks.

I have a toshiba TP55C81 projection TV. The red The red vertical adjustments stopped working. The adjustmnet knob in the control panel does not effect the adjustment and none of the vertical adjustmen


You need to replace the vertical STK convergence chip but I would recommend that you replace the horizontal chip at the same time as this is likely to fail soon.

The following relates to the repair I have recently carried out to my Toshibal 40WH08B rear projection TV but shuold be very similar to your model. Replace the STK chips with the same type on your model:

On the convergence board PB 9487 (the one with the 2 large heat sinks that the r, b & g guns plug into) you will see two STK392-110 ics connected to the large heat sinks. Replace both of these and readjust convergence in service mode if necessary.

I obtained the replacement ics from Charles Hyde & Sons Ltd (see link below). I ordered the general ics not the Toshiba ones as these are identical as far as I could see and they cost £17.19 each instead of £36.68 each.

http://www.chsinteractive.co.uk/search.html?query=stk392-110

You will need to desolder the heat sinks as well as the ics as access to the ic mount screws are obstructed by the conv.dig board (metal cased). Buy a good quality desolder pump if you dont have one.
One last thing I should mention. The white paste between the ics and the heatsink is silicon thermal compound. Without this the heatsinks will not take heat from the ics effectivly and the ics will burn out! I recommend that you clean all of the old paste off the heatsinks and apply new to the whole of the metal plates on the back of the ics before you screw them to the heatsinks. You can get the thermal compound and the desolder pump from the same supplier I recommended for the ics.

Let know if your are having any problems.

Where can we get the best IC Replacement


always stick with the manufacturers brand ! but you will need to check the resistors on the IC lines to make sure thier values are not off , because that will cause the IC to go again no matter what brand IC you use. other components in line of the IC should also be checked for bad values as they can also cause malfunction and breakdown of an IC and its circuit components

Toshiba big screen The tv is like double exposed . I have a toshiba big screen tv and I have double images in red and green. How do I fix this problem?


This is likely your convergence ICs(chips). If you can bump it then the ICs (chips) are still ok, it just needs resoldering.
my company charges $300-400 for the full repair (replacing ICs, full realignment plus cleaning)
if you can find a company that will resolder for you, it could cost $100-200 maybe. if you are a handy person with soldering skills, you could repair yourself. i can instruct if needed, but convergence IC soldering requires decent soldering skills. you will find the ICs on the largest heatsink in the tv. the part number starts with STK. if you replace them, check the resistors in front of them and replace accordingly. most toshiba will blow up to 3 fuses (f850, f851, f852)
