Red convergence:can adjust horizontal but not vertical

After powering down the set on night everything was fine. The next morning when powering up the set the convergenge was off on the red and blue on both single and multipoint. On the red convergence:can adjust horizontal but not vertical. blue convergence works ok. At this point Have done nothing inside the unit...where can I get the convergence control? I am an authorized tube amp repairman so I am very familiar with electtronics and the risk involved... thanx...skweeze

    Have red outlines on the right side of the screen projections. They can not be corrected using the red convergence. Verticle convergence works, but horizontal will not move in either direction. Any help appreciated.

A sign that amps are going bad, right now you can check resistors in convergence board alongside the amps, check resistance to see if right.

I fixed this tonight -- it was the convergence amps, which I purchased for $20. Thought it was the convergence board at first but it turned out to be the amps, which commonly fail after 3 years or so.

I don't understand you language but I think you need both convergence amplifier IC's replaced. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: convergence bad

resistor along the convergence are 2Watt size or less. they are easy to find as all of them are in pairs. if you find one is not the same on the other, then replace that resistor. change the 2 convergence IC at the same time. let us know.

My picture is doubled on my toshiba TN50V71 as if there is a shadow behind everything? Please help!


hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  • Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  • Repeat these steps for all colors.
    good luck!

    Hello,

    To get the code to enter on your remote to engage multipoint convergence adjustments, you need to contact the rca customer care for that, you get them your model number and they will get your code for you.

    To process and save the adjustment made, follow the steps below;
    1. Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.
    2. Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
    3. Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
    4. Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.

    6. Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
    7. Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.

    Remote will not adjust red convergence/multi-point horizontally


    check resistors around convergence i.c.(red) philips may use 2 resistors in parallell. should be about 1.8 ohms. assuming you already changed the i.c.

    Hitachi 51SWX20B Convergence problem


    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.

    No horizontal red convergence control


    Probably the red convergence output IC has failed. The chip is basically a stereo amplifier that serves as a horizontal amplifier and a vertical amplifier. I suspect the vertical part has failed and is not uncommon. Should be generic STK392-150's or maybe STK392-110/120 I believe. By the way when the line moves up and down that means the vertical is working when it moves side to side the horizontal is working.
