Red picture tube out of alingment how do you make major adjustment


Its done with the original remote--convergence in the customer menu should be looked at first---call up the crosses or the grid of lines, it has one or the other.

You first want to look to see if red out and then if it will move both up/down and left right where off.

If it will not move in some direction anywhere on the screen the convergence output chips the set uses are bad.

The set will or should have two hidden menus, one will bring up the advanced grid for convergence---input for that with the remote is Mute, 181 or 183----if you call up the wrong one shut set off and try the other number.

It is possible to converge the whole screen there, if memory serves me 7,8,9 change the color being adjusted DO NOT ADJUST GREEN FOR ANY REASON.

two buttons (different on different remotes will move the cursor around the grid (and the remote must have a button somewhere on it with "data" to save the adjustments.

Check in customer menu the convergence first---got movement?

Mitsubishi Rear Projection WS


5ebe434.jpg A projection television and a convergence control method thereof are provided. The projection television, which magnifies images displayed on cathode ray tubes (CRTs) for the colors red, green, and blue using lenses and projects the magnified images onto a screen, includes a convergence control apparatus capable of adjusting the convergence while an input image signal is displayed, the convergence control apparatus including: an image signal decoder which processes the input image signal to generate a data signal, horizontal and vertical synchronous signals, and a start signal indicating the start of either the horizontal or vertical synchronous signal; a convergence control unit which normally projects an image signal output from the image signal decoder onto the screen and performs convergence control using a predetermined region of the screen displaced from a visible region of the screen according to a convergence control command; and a main microcomputer which inputs the convergence control command to the convergence control unit when the start signal is input from the image signal decoder, stops the convergence control when a completion signal is input from the convergence control unit, and performs a control operation to continuously display the image signal during the convergence control.

The screen has bowed lines and different colors no sound


If the model as indicate here (WS-55807) YOU may have two problems: Convergence and a audio problem.

In customer menu select convergence and with the Mitsubishi remote try to adjust the grid of lines so no red etc--if bowed it will not adjust.

This would mean the two stk-392-570 convergence chips this model uses need to be replaced(I have free start to finish instructions for that).

The no sound may and is likely a second issue: speakers in the menu may be switched off etc.

If both happened at the same instant this model has a hard reset(not from front of set but with a 4 digit code and done with the Mitsubishi remote) This sets everything except convergence adjustments back to factory original.

It is called the OPTION menu.

So, did both issues happen at exact same time or what?

Parts for the convergence repair are under 30 dollars total and I can tell you where.

How i adjust horizontal size and vertical size


To answer your concern, all you have to do is to change the setting of your aspect ratio on your TV.

Here is my suggested way to procede:


1. Apply 1080i signal, which should produce an oversized HD image on ColorStream1or 2.
2. Select an HD channel that is broadcasting standard 4:3 image, not wide screen.
3. Switch to the Service Mode ( Please refer to the above links). In the Service mode, press channel up/down to find the Adjustment parameters needed for the following steps.

4. Adjust HIT with volume up/down control for the image height to 22.5 inches.

6. Adjust WID for image width of 30 inches, (22.5*4/3)
7. Adjust HPOS to center the image.
8. Adjust PARA and TRAP to minimize geometric distortion.
9. Switch into Convergence mode and Adjust VLIN to get equally spaced horizontal grid lines.
10. Measure the length of the central grid lines and note the number of horizontal and vertical grid lines. This information is used to create an overlay grid.
11. Create the overlay grid on 40x25 x0.003 inch clear Acetate sheet, which you can get at the Art Supply store for under $2. Draw the grid with a fine line erasable pen. Draw vertical and horizontal lines through the center of the sheet so that the lengths are the same as the central grid lines. Now draw the grid so that it has the same number of lines as the convergence grid but are equally spaced, with the outer ones at the ends of the central lines.
12. Cut off about 1/4 inch from the right side of the sheet so that the sheet can lay flat against the screen, which is slightly less than 40 inches.
13. Put a reference mark on the TV frame 2.5 inches down from the upper left side of the screen.
14. Place the overlay on the screen so that the upper edge lines up with the reference mark. The overlay sticks by electrostatic attraction.
15. Use convergence controls to remove grid distortion and converge grid colors. Refer to the Anamorphic link for details.
16. Enjoy 1080i.

Other Comments:
I didn't realize I could create the overlay grid before placing the Acetate sheet on the TV screen, until I finished drawing the grid with the sheet placed on the screen. I added grid lines as called for in the procedure. I'm sure this method took much longer no only to draw the lines but some of them were difficult to see.

Part way through the convergence procedure, I became concerned that the image width was off since I did my screen adjustment with wide screen image. Thus, I decided to repeat that step with a 4:3 screen.

I confirmed the need to press 7 often to save results since after I adjusted one grid color without it, I accidentally hit a key that switched me out of convergence mode and when I switched back, all settings were gone.

Another mistake I made was not realizing that the cursor color determines which grid gets moved.

Hitachi 53SBX10B-color and horizontal lines issues


with the original Hitachi remote go into the customer menu and select convergence---you should get a cross in the middle of the screen--look to see which color will not move either up and down or left and right---sounds like bad convergence IC and this is not uncommon in most rear projection sets---if this is the problem the set uses two convergence output IC chips that both should be replaced and then the set adjusted in the Technical menu----the convergence mode can be engaged by removing the front grill and an inspection plate behind it and pushing a small micro switch located on the front of the board; when the switch is engaged with the set turned on a grid of lines will appear on the screen and then the set is adjusted with the remote---hope this was helpful---if you need direct assistance you can contact me : etower.766@netzero.net

I have 46ux13k hitachi tv and i need to know if there is atrick to adjusting the convergence.


Manual Convergence for the Hitachi. YOU WILL NEED ORIGINAL HITACHI REMOTE. NONE ELSE WILL DO
1. Receive an NTSC signal.
2. Press Magic Focus to begin magic focus
3. Press magic focus again during the magic focus process to get the “stop” screen.
4. While stop screen is up, press STATUS or INFO on the remote control (R/C) to bring you to DCAM mode and the service grid (64 point grid).
5. When you first get in here? I believe red is the selected color by default (it is flashing).
6. To choose other colors to converge, use the following buttons on the R/C:
· “STATUS” - Green
· “0” - Red
· “ANT” – Blue

ONE COLOR WILL NOT MOVE. YOU WILL NEED TO MOVE OTHER COLORS TO ALIGN TO IT.
7. Start from the center of the screen and work your way out on one color at a time. I adjusted red across the whole screen to match green. Then I switched to blue, and adjusted that to green as well. After you adjust blue, you
may want to go back and adjust some red again? etc. until the convergence looks good.

· Use 4, 6, 2, and 5 on the R/C to move the cursor position (dotted lines).
· Use thumb stick to move the convergence point color.


Then going along the lines and adjusting, you may run into the problem of getting an ‘S’ curve on the line. You’ll know if you get there. Basically, no matter what you do to adjust the line to be converged, the middle of the line between the points will not straighten out (it bends between the points). To fix this, the manual recommends going to the (7x5) mode which gives you less points to adjust. I had this problem, and the solution worked. There is also another mode (3x3) which gives you even less points. Basically, if the set looks good, you only fine tune it in (13x9) mode (64 point). If you have serious problems, the grids work as:
3x3 – ‘coarse’
7x5 – ‘medium’
13x9 – ‘fine’
10) To get to each of these patterns use the following on the R/C: (only if you need to)
1. (3x3) Press “STATUS” 5 times (only works when DCU is in uncorrected state)
2. (7x5) Press “0” 5 times
3. (13x9) Press “ANT” 5 times
11) If you adjust the 3x3, then you should go to the 7x5, and then the 13x9. You get the point… depending on where you start, work your way up, and always finish on the 13x9
12) When finishing up the 13x9 mode, to get additional ‘grids’ on the edges of the screen, press the PIP CH button on the remote control while in the digital convergence adjustment mode (DCAM). Fine tune the edge convergence as necessary. To exit, press PIP CH again.
13) When convergence is acceptable, press PIP MODE to write data to ROM memory. ROM WRITE? is displayed to alarm system that ROM will be overwritten with new data. Press the PIP MODE button again to write displayed data to ROM.
14) DATA WRITE TO ROM will take approximately 4 seconds and no picture will be displayed.
15) Green dots will be displayed when operation is completed.
16) Press MUTE to return to convergence pattern, then confirm again convergence is acceptable.
17) Turn power OFF.
18) Wait a few seconds. Turn the TV on, and you should have your normal signal. Press Magic Focus button just to make sure the magic focus still works (and that you did the last few steps properly)

Convergence problem, how to fix with my remote?


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.

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?
