The problem that you are describing is most commonly caused by the convergence IC’s and the associated circuitry. They may be damaged and need to be replaced, along with the resistors and or power supply fusible links.

The convergence IC’s are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. If you choose to repair the set yourself, be very careful of the high voltage that can be stored in the capacitors, and CRT’s. This voltage can be as high as 30,000 volts.

I would recommend a local service center to repair your set, they may be able to give you an estimate for the repair.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Red color alignment problem


1) Whenever a rear projection TV has convergence issues, the
fix involves replacement of both IC's = STK392-110.......sub to
STK394-160E for improved durability...........
2) Soldering only is a temporary "fix" at best
3) Do not allow generic IC's, OEM quality or better = I use
Hitachi brand,made by Sanyo,with no callbacks....
4) Skill level needed = above average,....needs chassis pull...T.

This is a very common failure on Projection sets. Its called a convergence problem.
You may have one or more of the following symptoms.
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.
No Audio / No Video - Makes Chirping Sounds

Can't converge the whole screen at once


A surround sound receiver wouldn't cause issues itself but the possibility that speakers could cause issues is there. Speakers usually are an issue with direct view CRT televicions more than CRT projections. Don't move any physical adjustments on the CRT's unless you understand what each magnet is accomplishing on it. It is a electrical alignment and most likely one that has to be done in the technicians convergence alignment settings not the consumers.
