OK, problem seems in convergence section of TV and can be confirmed by testing voltage supply as mentioned in schematics.

You can download service manual copy from Manual Zone for small fee and it has schematics, exploded views. board location, part numbers info.

Cheap Fix?

I will strongly advise you to replace the two STK392-120 as a pair. and this will cure your bowing picture problem. You may need to re-converge your set. best of luck.

Suddenly, the screen shows double images on letters and numbers plus red/greenish like shadows on characters.

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.



Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix


You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

Screen is bowed (top and bottom) Color has a green and purple tint?

Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

More than likely you need to replace your IC's on your convergence board. Im not entirely sure on this model, but it's probably STK392-110. There are a lot of people that recommend that you replace them with STK392-150 to ensure a longer life.

I have a JVC AV-48WP30, and I had a lot of issues w/ red lines appearing on my screen. If your problem is like mine, then you have to find the video processor, which is a small, squarish metal box on the main board right behind where the a/v plugs are on the back, and jiggle it a little bit, maybe stick a zip tie on there. That always made my lines disappear.

Convergence green lines

Closely inspect the board for poor solder connections. Also someitmes the resistors will not show any signs of being bad even though they are open. It is wise to measure them but you need to disconnect the convergence yoke plugs to ge a good reading.
