Re: Convergence

Sensor not reading problem is due there is some obstruct between sensor and projected light beam. Check any disturbance are there and clean the sensors. Cleaning work is done by the technical persons only since it is sensitive area. Try another method also by changing the TV aspect ratio is 16:9 and then select auto convergence method. This is the one chance is there before you call the technical person

The convergence chip is already faulty try to replace it. Remove the back cover of your tv but be sure to unplug it before opening it, you will see the convergence chip attached to a large aluminum plate this plate is the heat sink be careful when replacing the convergence chip because you may accidentally damage the pcb and cause much serious damage to the tv.

Tv out of foucs

These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then: Convergence The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’ images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen. Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the signal format. Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue Centering. When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options: Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen (this is normal). Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the screen, if necessary. Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture. Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture. Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to converge the picture.

Auto convergence no longer works on Mistubishi WS-55807

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

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

RCA R52WH74 convergence problem

your television is a multi system television and has different aspect ratios. if you are viewing normal 16:9, and 4.3 then you have enter the service mode and adjust the convergence for every aspect ratio. also the convergence between progressive and standart is different. if you are lucky enough to have magic focus or auto convergence all you need to do is hit this button in every mode that the problem is occuring on.
