    Is there a trick to getting the bridges to match back up?

    I have installed all the parts, everything is back together except the 4 bridges. I cant even get them started, I have been trying for almost two hours.

    Yes the STK392-110 Ics are for your model. Its also best to replace the six 2.2 ohm 2watt feed resistors when you replace the ICs

    just make sure the boards are fully seated with the screws then just insure that the thin wires havent jumped their tracks in the little slots that they rest in as it makes them hard to line up.

My panasonic pt-53wx52is tripping out and the convergence is all screwed up, i have a video of my tv at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0azkEHH9SY any help is appreciated. I am pretty good with electronics...


Convergience problems usually means you need to replace an IC. IC's are one of the most difficult parts that can be replaced when it comes to tvs. If you find the one that needs to be replaced make sure you take your time and fully desolder the ic before removing it.

HD 1080 Series (WD-55809) - Color convergence issue


I don't know of illustrated instructions but I can provide you with the service manual for your TV. It does have illustrations of disassembly and components as well as schematics. Your set very likely needs new convergence IC chips. This is a common problem with all projection TVs. The repair is not expensive ($60-75 in parts)  but does involve unsoldering and removing the old chips and soldering in new ones. Some times there are some fuses that need to be replaced as well. If you want the manual provide me with an email address.

How do you replace ic chips on Panasonic 52 inch hdtv projection?


Most IC's on circuit boards these days are of the surface mount variety. You will need special Desoldering Equipment to remove these chips, especially the one wth 100 or more pins, the type of equipment used in this process heats all sides of the chip at once while a small suction that grabs the chip for removal. Now the SIP chips (Single inline package). chips which usually consists of less then 20pins can be removed with a desoldering gun such as the HAko 880 desoldering gun. Or you can use a standard soldering iron and solder Wick, that can be found at Radio Shack under Soldering Braide).. These procedures are common for all IC replacement. I am asuming you are trying to remove the Convergence IC on this model, The two large Black one labeled STK-392-110, the correct and easy way to remove these is to remove the entire board from the unit and remove the two screws holdinf each one in place, Unsolder the pins of each one and remove the IC, reverse this process to reinstall them. Good soldering technique is critical here as you don't want to bridge pins together causing yourself more problems. Double check your soldering and Double check it again.

Phillips 60in projection,rred/greenish 3d effect


the two resistors were likely burnt out with a convergence IC (chip). these are usually a stk392-120 on a philips, or simmilar. the alignments can be very tedious and difficult. what needs to be done is replace the ICs that control the colors that are mis-aligned. you might see that the green is square and straight, but the red or blue is off. in most cases, i would just change both convergence ICs plus the bad resistors. then go to your full re-alignment of convergence to fix the picture. hopefully the previous owner didn't mess anything up too much (if they changed anything on the CRTs ie yokes, lens focus, centering magnets it could counteract your electronic adjusments). before you put too much time into it, look to see that all 3 colors are atleast focused and it appears that the CRTs have been left untouched. once you get circuit repaired, you will probably want a service manual to help with alignment. this complexity may bring you to want to just pay for this repair, could run you anywhere from $200-400 depending on severity and local rates.

Rca 52 inch projection looks like 3-d movie


Open up the back, the convergence ICs are large and attached to a heat sink. They should be marked STKxxx. In most cases, replacing the ICs is enough. Sometimes the feeder resistor fails because of too much current draw. Change the ICs before looking for more parts. Also, try resoldering the ICs. Bad connections can cause this problem as well.

Convergence


i have tried this replacement on philips 43 inch. convergence ic part # is STK-392-120. it is mounted on a big heatsink, replace this 2 IC at one time. soldering is not difficult. 1. you need desoldering tool (**** type) 2. soldering iron of 40W 3. and silicon grease for greater transfer between IC body and heatsink. i bought that personally in asia for less than 50USD on two IC with same part # . let me know if there is any other thing i can do.
