Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Red Covergence - No Remote

Was given the TV, without remote. I have a convergence or IC issue as many others on this board are describing (red is off kliter, causing doubling of image where red is present etc). Would like to try to adjust convergence before taking in for repair, can this be done without the remote? If not any good sources for a remote quickly?

I believe you can hit the menu button located on the front of the tv, scroll to the screen option, then always choose green convergence first, then the others. To make it easy on yourself, you could always purchase an inexpensive universal remote, or even better, an RCA remote.

Colored lines at top and bottom when tv comes on and seeing double vision in different colors at all times


If your tv is not a DLP the problem is in the convergence, try to adjust it using your original remote control go to the setting menu then to the convergence section. Adjust the red and blue convergence. you should move the red and the blue in up, down and left, right if this color does not move far enough your convergence IC is already defective. Replacing this convergence IC will solve the problem. In locating this convergence IC you should remove the back cover of your unit but be sure to unplug it before doing this. This convergence IC is attached to a large aluminum plate, it is the heat sink, and it has a marking of stk- ### followed by numbers. You can try to pull it out using a soldering iron and soldering pump but be careful you may damage the board and cause much problem to your unit. Or you can contact a technician to do it for you and save you from stress good day and best regards.

Hi,
Problem cause is red convergence output chip failure that will be replaced to fix the issue.
If you have experience of electronics stuff repair and can replace parts in circuit board as it requires soldering work with proper tools then can replace convergence output IC in your tv by yourself.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Red color convergence issue; Red lines are curved


This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Convergence problem


I can't imagine how you would have enough electrical contact on the STK110s without soldering them in place, so I would think you need to solder them before testing further. Running the TV without them soldered in place and properly heat-sinked could cause additional damage to the TV and/or other components.

Convergence


If the red isnt responding via the remote you will need to replace the STK392-110 Ics as the service menu adjustment will not correct it 100% due to the IC being faulty and the red and half the green is controlled by one IC and the blue and other half of green is controlled by the second IC so without changing both ICs the set will progressively get worse. Both ICs are stk392-110. You can get replacements at the following link along with instalation instructions

SAMSUNG Convergence Problem


It looks like blue convergence. Look at menu, select convergence and see if blue top is bent down on convergence adjust screen. Probably won’t adjust.

Some Samsungs have convergence IC’s on a separate convergence board in the back of the TV. Others have the IC’s mounted on the main deflection board. Either way the board has to be removed to get at the dud IC’s and associated burnt resistors.

You remove the appropriate board, determine if any resistors are burnt or damaged, replace any burnt or out of tolerance resistors, replace 1 or 2 IC's and re-install the board.

Now you have to adjust it to look like new.

If the unit has not been misadjusted and everything is OK now, running the auto focus may put the picture back to it’s previous stunning quality as it was before IC failed.

If after Perfect Focus it is still misadjusted noticeably, try the customer convergence adjustments. Operators’ manuals are available on web through searching.

If convergence can not be adjusted properly, you messed up chip install or resistors may be wrong value or open; or it needs major adjustment.

If you live around Calgary, Alberta try me instead:

Or try to the find the repairperson part of this website (on the Homepage) and search postal code. Maybe you will be lucky and someone from your area is listed for Projection TV repair.

Most rookies doing this job will cause damage and not be successful. They will pay double for someone to fix their mess or end up scrapping the TV. It is not a simple task. It is more difficult than batteries on a remote.

Good Luck

Intermittent convergence (IC?) problem


Can be bad solder connections on IC pins, but intermittent
conditions can damage IC's, so we usually replace because
the labor to get the board out is the same ..........Three to five
years on a pair of convergence IC's is normal.........T.
