Coincidence? IC chip burn out

I was programming my new Cable box remote to activate my Tv when the code that should operate it would not work so I used the "philips" default find a code program that comes with the remote when I entered it nothing happened, so I entered it a few times no go after a few tries I noticed my convergence was off and it will not respond now. Does any one beleive that the new remote caused this? Also can any one tell me a cost estimate to have the IC chips/board reaplced?

Re: Coincidence? IC chip burn out

I agree 100% with what premtech says, but don't be put off. Make sure you know where the cables go. It took me 20 minutes to have everything disassembled and good to replace. When you take the ic's off save yourself some grief and snip the leads then take the stubs out one at a time. Also, clean the fireproof 1watt resistors with rubbing alcohol after they are replaced so you don't leave oil on them. Oil CAN (no it isn't a myth) allow high voltage to arc over them and to a degree bypass them and cause weirdness or cause them to burn up again.

Re: Coincidence? IC chip burn out

I doubt seriously that the remote had anything to do with the problem you're describing. That is a DPTV305 chassis and uses two STK392-120 ICs for convergence amps, designated IC7044 and IC7045. In that unit I would HIGHLY recommend using the Philips OEM part which is p/n#932212344682 to keep from having tint problems down the road... After replacing the amps you should also test and/or replace all the 6.8 ohm/1w bias resistors down front. Parts are not too expensive, under $100.00 bucks - but the labor might be a little spendy since that unit is not a light box and the teardown alone is estimated at 2.0 hours. Like the old Chilton auto manuals that's 2.0 hours for a qualified CET, with every tool needed at his fingertips. It will probably be closer to 2.5 hours - then come re-assembly. I'd strongly recommend finding a good reputable shop and take it to them.. Hope this helps. Bill

I have an Akai PT5492S television that I don't know the v-chip password to and need to reset the v-chip password.

This TV is fitted with a V-CHIP controller which provides you with channel viewing access controls
and restrictions. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes
that you may choose to exclude.
Press the MENU button and press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP SET option,
then press the ENTER button.
Enter your password (4 digits) using the Direct channel selection buttons (0-9).
In the event of entering incorrect password press the RESET button. Then press the
ENTER button.
Enter the same password for confirmation, then press the ENTER button.
Press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP option.
Press the ENTER button to select the ON.
Press the SET + or – button to select the TV RATING or MOVIE RATING option. Press
the ENTER button.
Press the SET + or – button to select the desired rating for the applicable video or TV
channel. Press the ENTER button.

And to change or put in a new password:
• If you want to change password, follow steps 1 and 2 and select "CHANGE PASSWORD"
option then enter your new password.
• The V-Chip function is activated only on programs and tapes that have the rating signal.
• Once you block a program using the V-Chip function, the blocked program cannot be watched
based on the content of the show. When the program starts, the "INPUT PASSWORD" will
appear on the screen. When you want to release the V-Chip temporarily, enter the password.
If you change the channel or turn off the TV while the V-Chip function was temporarily released,
the original setting will be resumed. If you return to the channel you were watching you must
re-enter your password to temporarily release your V-Chip function again.
• When you watch the TV from the cable box or the VCR with the RF Modulator, then you release
the V-Chip temporarily, the V-Chip setting will not be resumed until you turn off the TV. The
TV channel is not used in this case.
• When changing the channel with the cable box or the VCR, approximately 10 seconds will
pass until the program appears.

TV Guide program does not activate or work. How

This sounds like you have a Samsung DLP TV with the built in TV guide system. Unfortunately what you are doing is the ONLY fix for it as there is no way in the system to deactivate the guide. The only work around is by using a cable or satellite box connected to composite or component inputs. This bypasses the internal tuning system therefore eliminating the internal TV guide system. Please take a few moments to rate my answer, Thank you..

In your packet there should be a set up sheet for the remote when you try to set it up follow the search guide for the remote to search and find the comcast box. Depending on how the search works on that remote it may take some time and you may find more than one setting that will work. Then you have to choose the best one that operates the comcast box the best. Good luck and be patient.

Hitachi 51G500A Convergence Problem

Hi, 110`s & 150`s are both replaced by stk 392-120`s. which run waaay cooler because the 120``s are rated at 4 amps while the 110`s and 150`s are 3 amp devices , the real key is to make absolutely certain you are not buying generics (which are everywhere on the internet), there should
be NO black print on the back side and a 4 digit code (not 5) on the front, top right corner, the originals or OEM`s are never $8.99, usually run about $12-15 and are made by Sanyo but the word sanyo will NOT be on the IC`s , so go by the info above, be sure to check for burnt resistors next to the heatsinks as well, good luck, video-tek

TV Help!!

Yes , this sounds like the EPROM IC is failing or the crystal that keeps the frequency on the IC needs to be replaced , or even the buttons on the tv could be warped by the heat of the tv( if it is the buttons , then removing the control board from the plastic buttons will stop the random cycle and may make it so you can turn on the tv , but if not then it is the EPROM IC or crystal)
to check and see if the chip is messing up , hold down the menu button on the tv or vol up down and see if it stops cycling thru the video inputs
