Convergence problem My tv has red arches at the top and bottom of the screen. After the tv warms up for about 30 -45 minutes, we turn it off and turn it back on and it works fine. we have tried to use the menu options to converge, but it won't let you move up. It only seems to be the red .

Re: convergence problem

I had the same problem with my 60PP920217F TV until I did what troylove11 and holbert had suggested. Replace 2 IC chips located on heatsink part # 932212344682 purchased at and the 6 identical resistors in same location of curcuit board part # RMO 1W 6R8 J purchased at The total for all parts came to about $135. My TV works just like new now.

Picture arches down at the top and arhes up at the bottom

Your TV most likely has one or more 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.
Here is a quick test....

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 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.

Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Convergence on Projection screen

More than likely the repair company used cheap chips when they did the repair. The cheap ones fail real quick. Goto the site They have built a kit that you can do yourself. It includes name brand chips and a photo instuction guide.

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
