Solution:

Your TV has a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms.

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in or warped.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the 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.

Its a fairly easy fix on the Hitachi sets.

You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from www.TvRepairKits.com. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.

You can go in through the back of the tv to set the focus you should be able to converge the tv from the remote.if not i would call a service tech and have them come and reset it for you.

Poss. convergence problem with Hitachi 53UDX10B Ultravision


You have convergence problem. Either bad connections on ics, ics are bad or voltages to convergence circuit are missing. There are no bulbs in this set. 3 picture tubes,red,green and blue produce a picture than when alighned(converged) correctly on top of each other gives you a color picture.When not you get the effect you are describing. Frst you can try the magic focus in the menu.

Projection TV2_bing.gif sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV 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, Samsung2_bing.gif, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith2_bing.gif, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D2_bing.gif
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on - TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

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

Note: If you TV has as flash2_bing.gif focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

Convergence not alighning tv screen


No you cannot! There is a switch on the convergence pnl for complete convergence. You can make things 10 times worse if you don't know what your doing.

Reverse fisheye!!


you are going to need to replace the convergence board assembly. It is available at http://www.samsungparts.com/part_detail.asp?catalog%5Fname=Parts+and+Accessories&product%5Fid=BP95%2D00142P&search%5Fmodel=HCN653W. Also get the service manual, as you will need to do some touchup convergence and reset the perfect focus setup again If you have the technical ability. If you do, great! If you do not, these service menu alighnments can mess up your set, so take no shortcuts. Good Luck

This tv has been a nightmare, its been down 3 times in 4 years.


The convergence board, AA95-01799G is available from http://www.samsungparts.com for about 122 bucks + shipping. You also may need to get the service manual so you can do the convergence alighnments with this set when you replace the board. You will also need the manual to perform the perfect focus alighnment on this set if you have that feature. Good Luck

Samsung HCN473w out of focus


The convergence IC's in this TV set are bad. Both IC's should be replaced at the same time. They are labeled STK 392-040. Use only the ones that are not replacements but from a reliable source. The complete convergence board is no longer available from Samsung, so this is why these IC's need to be replaced. You will also need the service manual for this TV set as after vthe IC's are replaced you will need to go into the service menu and do a convergence alighnment. Good Luck

Blue curves up on the ends and red down


Your going to need to hook up a cross hatch generator to adjust the internal convergence alighnments. Anytime, a tube is replaced, there is alot of alighnment involved with the convergence, and it cannot be alighned from the customers convergence controls. I suggest first you get a service manual, and follow the alighnment to the letter for the convergence. If you do not have a cross hatch generator, then your going to need a test disc(DVD) that has a cross hatch on it. If you do not have access to those two things(cross hatch generator or the test disc) you will need to call out a tech to do this alighnment to the set. They (service tech) don't tell you when you get an estimate for a picture tube that there is some alighnment involved that reguires special test equipment. Thats why they charge what they do. I wish I had better news for you, but without proper test equipment, this is going to be a tough battle. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.

Picture got shadow


First thing to do is go to http://www.servicemanuals.net and get the service manual, as if you dont adjust these things in the proper order, it will never alighn or it will take you hours on end, because most of the time, when you move one thing, it affects the other alighnment, so if you do it off the cuff your having to do one, go back touch up another and may need to redo the same alighnment a hunderd times!~! See my point? Now if one section is not responding to the ajustment, or all of a suddenly the adjustments went out, and you try to adjust them, STOP! The alighnments may drift a little over the sets lifetime, but never will they go out drastacly, unless the convergence IC's go bad. They are the black rectangle IC's that start with STK and are mounted onto stand up metal heat sinks. If your not a tech or know the safty issues with a TV set, please call out a trained service person to assist you with this repair.

CONVERGENCE PROBLEM


Yes sir anytime you move a projection set ,theres a chance that the convergence could go out of alighnment as it dosent take much. First off your gonna need a cross hatch generator and a service manual and a good kno how on convergence alighnment as when you adjust some controls you need to counter it withanother completely differant alighnment control> so in some cases to get a section or a linearity correction your gonna spend some time. I myself remeber one set I spend 5 hours on after a customer tryed to adjust the confergence them selfs. Not only did it cost a bundle to realighn the gentleman need to go to the hospital as i results of touching a spot on the chassis that he shouldnt have and gave him a shock that threw him across the room. My advice, unless you have convergence experience is to invest in a service person to come out to your home and adjust it for you. I would try first an authorized repair center as they should have all the tools and secrits to the convergence in that set. And Please without electronic experience, even an unplugged set can harm ya. Good luck Try the # and the link 800) 252-5722 or proinfo@jvc.com
