Repair or replace

My husband's 60" tv purchased in 2005 was damaged by water when basement flooded. Should we try to repair or replace it. Average cost from last repairman was $1700 to repair, more than what I paid for the tv initially.

Re: repair or replace

It depends, if the set was plugged in at the time of the flood and or if there was any electrical power going to the set at the time. If the set was unplugged and was not plugged in afterwards then if you can open the back of the set and sit it out in the hot sun exposing the board and cover the glass so it does not melt, there is a possiblity that when completely dried up it may work. Try with caution thou.

Re: repair or replace

If the water in the basement came up high enough to cover the main boards in the projection TV, then I would not even attempt to repair it - the cost of replacing the boards, if available, and the realignment would be as much or more than a new set.

When the picture on your projection TV looks like 3D, the image bows in on all sides and red/green/blue are separated you have bad convergence ICs. They are located on the mainboard attached to a large aluminum heat sink. The heat sink could be shiny or black depending on the manufacturer. They are generally located near the rear of the High Voltage/Power supply board. The ICs are shaped like a trapezoid. I have a picture of one at the end of this tip. It is for identification purposes only, your actual part number may be different. Make sure you get the correct units.

Once you have located the ICs and heat sink look at the numbers printed on the ICs. The numbers on them should be of the form STK392-XXX. Note the number and go to and order two. One is for horizontal and one is for vertical. You should also go to and if you do not already own one order a good solder iron (40 watts with conical tip, temp control would be helpful), solder wick, heat sink compound, solder puller and solder.
You will need good soldering equipment and skills. Do not apply too much heat to the connections on the underside of the board or the lands will come off causing bigger problems. The secret to soldering/desoldering is to have a hot iron and concentrate on one part at a time. Keep good contact with the piece being soldered/unsoldered.

In addition you must have a clean tip to do a good job and get the soldering done in the shortest period of time. Use a good tip cleaner (looks like a kitchen scrubber) which can be purchased at the site I mentioned or a substitute you may have, steel wool or a damp cloth. All work about the same, the important part is that the tip is kept clean.

Sometimes you need to remove the heat sink to install the IC's leads due to the number, and difficulty, of getting them in the proper holes. This usually requires removing several screws from the bottom of the board or unsoldering the hold down tabs and possibly straigtening them to get them through the holes in the circuit board depending on your particular model. The ICs can be removed from the heat sinks by removing two hold down screws and prying them loose from the heat sink. This can sometimes take quite a bit of pressure.

Another problem to watch out for is bridging of the leads when resoldering the IC into the board. Before powering up the unit make absolutely certain that no leads have been soldered together or "bridged". Correct any issues. You do not need a large amount of solder on the leads. A nice round smooth connection is best. Look at some of the other solder joints to see what a good solder joint should look like.

If your eyes are like mine it would pay to purchase a pair of magnifying binoculars from the same site you can get the equipment from, .

After replacing the ICs check all the resistors and microfuses in the area of the convergence ICs for opens. The fuses will look like resistors but no color code.

Remove the old ICs from the board and install the new ones. Be careful not to get the units too hot when installing the new ones. The heat sink compound goes on the back of the ICs in a thin coat to aid heat disapation. Don't over do it! Also clean all the old heat sink compound off the heat sink.

Once the ICs have been replaced and the unit is up and running you will need to set the convergence to align the beams. You should be familiar with this, if not the procedure should be outlined in your operations manual. If you lost your manual go to to get a new one for free.

If this was the only problem your unit should now look fine. While you have it apart you should clean the lenses and the mirror with a soft lint free cloth and window cleaner (no ammonia). Always spray the cloth, never spray inside the TV.

If the lines still will not converge you have a bad digital control box. Detailed intructions for removal and replacement of the digital box are located at my tip .


Example of a convergence IC. Your part # may be different.

Got our tv in 2004 and we're having the exact same problem. When the blue convergence started going a couple months ago my husband researched the heck out of it and decided it would cost less to just replace the tv with a newer, nicer model rather than repair it. And now, as of last night, we are having the same power issue where the power button goes on, but won't stay on. It just clicks on and off and no sound or picture. Did you ever get yours fixed, or did you end up replacing?

Tv background looks greenish replaced lamp & tryed to adj. to no avail any sugg.? thanks dave

Your Light Engine is on it's way out. The average cost to replace it is about $800.00. I would seriously consider not doing it. Most of our customers with that problem are putting the set in the basement for the kids to play there video games on and look to buy a new set. I would suggest LCD over Plasma because of the repair cost. Picture quality now is vary close.

Have an Aquos Sharp 32" 1080p LCD TV and the power went out in the house. Now the TV will not turn on, when I try the power indicator light blinks green repeatedly. Read the manual no help there....

This sounds like a problem that only a repair person can specifically point out.  It could be anything from a fuse to the "engine".
Try to find a local "authorized" repair person to give you a free quote with no responsibility on your part to get it fixed as TV repairs can cost 50% of what a new one would or what a working used one would.
Also, I'd recommend to NOT overload your electrical outlets and to not use without a surge protector (a real one).  If there is a storm or it's very windy,  try keeping not only your monitor for your PC off, but also your TV (unless you need it for emergency reasons).  Also, try getting a used battery powered cheap small tv with a digital converter box if you need to monitor the tv during an emergency.  Also, get renters of home insurance to cover the costs of weather related damage.
Last thing... be sure that any "extended warranties" offered by your local electronics store will cover the cost of any weather related power outages.  If so, it may be something to look into purchasing, although I generally advise to not buy into "extended store warranties".
OK, one last last thing... check the warranty with the manufactuer (SHARP)... If it's under warranty, tell them it's not working and you don't know why, so you need a replacement.
Good Luck! thomseye

I have a 60 '' philips tv model # 60pp9363/h17

I have worked on dozens of the DPTVXXX models recently all with audio but no video. In every set the HVG was the problem. 

If you are not sure how to find/repair/replace the HVG youself goto to get their how to guide. 

 Its an easy do-it-yourself fix. 

Also, if you call in a repair tech - they will almost certainly want to sell you a new LSB board for $500.00+. The LSB board is where the HVG is located. Average cost for a replacement HVG is around 140.00 from vancebaldwin, partstore, etc.

There is nothing you can do to repair the convergence problem it sounds like you have. If it is the older PTV set with crts it will probably cost $200.-$300. for the average repair of this nature.
If it's a DLP model, no convergence in those. Most likely a Light Engine. $500.-$800

You have more than one board that got water on it. Most likely a lost cause. Check with home owners insurance for repair or replacment value.
