Question about Zenith R57W46 57" Rear Projection Television

Zenith IQD61w20/35 convergence problem

TV has convergence problems. First had a failure of the STK amplifiers then I replaced both STK amplifiers for this TV. I have tried to get the convergence calibrated but have not been able to get full convergence match. I have used the service menu to try to adjust the RED & BLUE to match the green gun (never touched the GREEN adjustment) but I cannot get the RED to match the GREEN. No problem matching BLUE to GREEN. Just problem with matching RED to GREEN. Basically RED appears to be non linear in different sections of the convergence screen. In some regions the Horz is maxed out at either the min adjustment.

Note - I have the service manual and access to the service codes.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Convergance chip


devices: Any Projection TV with a Convergence Amp board

If I knew which Mitsubishi Projection TV you're looking at, I could help quite a bit more. In general, the "convergence chips" on a typical Convergence Amplifier board are actually two STK's mounted to large heat sinks. "STK" is electrical engineering slang for "Convergence Amplifier Integrated Circuit".

Here's a helpful Solution archived at FixYa:

You'll see in the photo that the STK on the PC board actually have part numbers on them that begin with "STK".

My rear projection television is showing a double picture with the blue out of allignment. It also shows a bow on the top and a bow on the bottom.


The tv have a problems known as a convergence problems,tv convergence board it is dead.Tv have R,G,B colors lines mis alignments,have colors pictures shadows or 3D pictures look alike?Yes.The tv convergence board it is dead.Must require replacing 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all of it resistors too.To fixed the tv convergence board to solved the tv picture convergence problems.The tv shop,will cost u like $300-350 for parts and labors.

I have sony tv kp-65wv600. It has problems. color and video is blurry, double vision, letters are curved


You have a convergence failure.

Convergence IC failure is very common. The solution is to replace the STK chips, check fuses and the resistors next to the STK chips. Replace as necessary and re-align via the service menu. It is about a $300 repair at a tv service center. You will need the service manual if you decide to do this yourself.

Try This:
When you notice the symptons Use this simple test to verify.
Go to the users menu on the tv.
Look for the converge option probably under setup or video setting. Converge is short for convergence to align the red and blue colors to the green color.

If you cannot move the red either horizontal or vertical, then the STK chip has failed for red section.
If you cannot move the blue either horizontal or vertical, then the STK chip has failed for the blue section.

If you can move both in each direction then the problem is something else.


Note if one STK chip fails, you replace both regardless

My zenith a60m91w1 has a bowed hourglas picture ithe prsim like colors at top and bottom


Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue 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.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc

Magnavox Rear Projection 51MP392H/17 has ghosting issue ..red/green double hallow. TV is six (6) years old. any idea what's wrong?


If this happened suddenly and the red and green images are bowed in at the center of the top, bottom and both sides, one of the convergence amplifier IC's has failed. The part number is STK392-120. Make sure it is a genuine Sanyo brand replacement; there are a number of cheap imitations out there that do not last. Generally they cost less than $30 each.

Note: there are two of these in each TV. They are notorious for having a high failure rate, so I usually replace both. (FYI: each chip has three amplifiers. Each color gets two amplifiers, so one color uses an amplifier on each chip. That's why we usually see at least two colors go out of whack when this problem happens.)

I assume you have already tried a different video source (DVD, VCR, etc.) to rule out input signal defects. If the problem arose right after the set was moved, either the optical alignment was disturbed or (less likely) there is a stray magnetic field near the set that is causing problems (magnetron from a microwave oven?). There is a procedure (sometimes provided in the owner's manual) for adjusting convergence using the remote control that can fix minor alignment problems. If you want to gamble it is not a hardware failure, try it first along one edge of the picture.

If you cannot shift the red or green dots in the convergence pattern, stop immediately, and make a note of where and in what direction you tried to move the dots. Inability to converge the dots is a strong indication the convergence amplifiers are bad (that is their job - to keep the colors lined up with each other). You will need to undo any adjustment attempts after you replace the convergence chips and any fuses or resistors that got burned when they went out, so don't make too much extra work for yourself or your service tech.

Hi, thank you for visit fixya.
Do you have shadows on picture? ( like double image). So,
Do you have problems with convergence deflection board.
