Hello gabes760,


The problem with your Tv might be the convergence corrcetion amplifier modules (2  STK392-110). These modules often malfunction and produce the symptoms you are describing. The cost of the parts is about from $12.00 - $32.00 depending on where you buy the parts from. The major cost will be the labor, and if needed the cost of installing the biasing circuitry that the modules use. This usually costs around $200.00 - $400.00 depending on the shop.


I hope this helps

Thank You,

Convergence. shadowing, arch top and bottom, red and green colors

You have a convergence problem. i see these set all the time at shop. first consult the article in tips and tricks section the fl231 fuse problem. it might provide some answer and might turn out to be a simple repair. If you do not have the convergence option under setup in customer menu then i say you have that problem.. otherwise it sounds like a convergence power board issue. if you have the options try autocovergence first and then if that fails try manual convergence of red and blue if the dont move then it will be convergence power board. let me know and ill try to talk you through it

Kines on Screen and Fading

Open up the front of the set by removing the speaker screen and the black piece of particle board. on the bottom right you will see 4 knobs. Turn those knobs slowly till the arcs go away. The 3 knobs on the bottom are for color. the 3 on top are for the focus.

Screen shadowing with colored lines

This is most likely a convergence problemand can easily be fixed. If you can solder you can repair this yourself. First try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that failes to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. THese are large black Ics attached to a heatsink and may be marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted.

Re Degaussing

Now Degaussing and convergence are two different things, if you say its degaussing then you should have just a color differential in a certain area, meaning the color should not be arched, everything that passes through should pass throu only with the changing of color. Now if its a convergence the the color may lift upward in an arch, likely separated from the other colors, Red, Blue,or Green. So now which do you think you have? Deguassing usually give you a highish green color or yellow

Arched picture at bottom seperating the green and red

Your tv has a convergance failure. the convergance ic's need to be replaced. Upgraded part # STK392-150 or STK392-160. Both ic's should be replaced to prevent future failure of other colors.

Weird arch like lines

Hello HollyJ, If possible can you post a picture of the problem, It would help in determining if this is a convergence problem or a pincushion circuit problem. You description while good is a little to general to many possible issues. This sounds like a defection issue but I would not be able to tell unitl I see a picture of the screen, take the picture with a digital camera and the post it to the page using the add image link on the right side of the dialog box. Thank you, Shuttle83,
