Question about Televison & Video
I have a ge52gw947 and the colors are not aligned. when i press menu,the screen is concave too. is there something in a setting i should press to set it in the middle? pls advise. thanks.
Your convergence chips have gone bad. If you are familiar with working on televisions, take the back off the set, discharge the flyback and disconnect the wires to the board and pull it out. On the board, you'll see 2 large metal heat sinks. Attached to them are the convergence chips (probably 2 of them). Unsolder them and replace with new ones. Mine cost $6 a piece + shipping. Be careful not to bend the legs while installing them. Also, you need to put something on the back of the chips to help dissipate heat. High temperature gasket sealer always worked for me. Do not attempt this fix if you are not comfortable working with high voltage. TVs, big or small, can kill you if you're not careful. Check youtube for a video on this...it helped me. Just keep your search real general, i.e. "Convergence Chips". Good Luck!
