Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.

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 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.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

Magnavox tv when the power button is pressed the green light comes on but nothing else happens; there's no picture or sound or nothing; but the green light simply stays lit (no blinking).


Hello,

first, press the channel -/+ button on the TV. If that doesn't turn on the TV, then it means you have to replace the bulb of your TV. The bulb is most likely dead.

Replace the bulb and your TV should be restored.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards.

Picture is too red


sounds like you may have a bulb out, you can pull the screen off to access it but you have to very careful with the screens or you will damage them, only clean with isopropyl alcohol and of good quality, there will be three bulbs in there, red blue green, their location and direction is very important, so dont move them, if they all work clean then put the screens back on, and see if you can adjust the direction from the menu

No picture


Pull the front cover off at the bottom. You will see a panel which has to be removed using a screw driver. Inside you will see the lamp assembly. It is a removable box. The lamp can be changed out by just changing out the connections on the new lamp. Before you pull it though try reducing your picture size to 4:3 it helped us to get a little more life out of our lamp.

Blury picture, convergance problem


What you're describing is probably contaminated coolant in the crts. Between the outer part of the crt and the lens is a chamber filled with a coolant (ethyl-glycol) which can become contaminated and cause blurred picture. I'd strongly recommend taking this to a shop the procedure for changing these is a bit beyond the layman level.
Remove Crt assembly. Mark the Crt lens position for accurate reasssembly.
Mark the centering ring's postions to make easier realignment and carefully remove lens assembly by removing the four torx screws. Keep Crt assembly vertical so you won't leak the fluid...
Remove the inner lens by carefully prying up on the edge of it.
Dump out the fluid in the sink and wash the face of the Crt and chamber with water to remove all the fungus and crud. Flush the chamber with isopropyl alcohol to kill all the fungus and dry thoroughly.
Reassemble inner lens and outer lens and tighten all four torx screws.
Remove side filler plug and fill chamber with approved new Crt coolant, reinstall and converge.
Repeat this procedure for the other two Crts. It will need this done whether it looks clear or not !! The green and blue Crts in this unit are prone to this failure.
Hope this helps
Bill

Red picture cannot adust with convergence


You have bad CRT Fluid, the green and Blue tube need the fluid changed. This is a messy and possibly dangerous to the tv proposition, you will want to call someone to change the fluid, you will probably spend $450+ for the repair, but it should look pretty good when done, possibly better than it has looked in years.
