For your projection TV to lose all its convergence , this means that your IC has become faulty which in turn has made your convergence amplifier to malfunction. i know you have replaced the convergence kit just six months before.but the same problem is faced by many convergence kit users ,as they say the IC which comes in the kit go weak or short very early.and if the ic is faulty it will not show convergence settings when menu is pressed. ------------------ You will have to replace STK392-110s you might have 150s if not 110s upgrade it with the latest  STK392-180s.all .110s,150s and 180s are compitable.
you can get it at  www.radioshack.com and cost of each ic is near to $10 and you will have to replace two such ic.as your convergence board will have two such ic.its a common problem and this will be solved after replacing ic. thanks. please do rate the solution.thanks.keep updated.

    our 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.
    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.

NO PICTURE!!!! Please HELP! I am going to kill my husband for bringing this TV home!


If the model number is correct and all you can get is the menu or on screen displays to work the set may need to be reset--not on the front or in the menu.

The set has 3 hidden menus: adjustment (keep out), tech convergence, and the OPTION menu.

Option menu enables a hard reset to factory of all settings except convergence and is designed to fix odd issues.

You need the Mitsubishi remote and a 4 digit code (model specific).

If you have the remote and want to try it let me know what the actual model number is and I will give you a link to the service manual which tells how to do it correctly.

I have a 2001 sony 53' rear projection tv model #KP-53HS30. It seems has a wavy section on the upper left hand corner and lower right hand corner of the screen. All the bulbs are working fine but seems...


Try this. The follow was found on tv-forums dot com by Zyntar...
There is a secret service menu to converge the Sony KP53HS30.
Caution: Be careful, there are many settings that can be tampered with. Some may be hard to undo.
Procedure: (use the remote control for these steps unless noted)
1. Turn TV off with System Off (under flap on remote)
2. Press: Display, 5, Volume +, then Power. If successful, service text will appear on the screen.
3. Use 2 & 5 to select the PJE Category.
4. Press 9 to get to fine convergence adjusting.
5. Press 6 several times to get the convergence screen of choice. I like the grid.
6. Use the remote's arrow keys (joystick), move the brackets around until you have found the area to adjust. Press the center of the joystick to change the bracket from white to a color. Use the joystick to adjust the color. Press 3 to change color to adjust. When done, press center of joystick again.
Note: Try to keep the grid even and squared up.
7. Repeat steps 5 and/or 6 for all parts of the screen that need it.
8. Once done, you need to save your settings. Press: Mute, Enter. Then on the TV, press "Flash Focus"
9. Turn off power.
TV is ready to use.

Toshiba big screen Model TZ50V60 Convergence Issue-Chips Replaced


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

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

You can see some more examples and find a fix here

Yes, you have a size problem you have horizontal and vertical size. Either its' in the service mode or somewhere on the set, with this set it's probably in menu. Must be set too high. I will look for menu codes! Is this an Akai or Panasonic set?
