Are you looking to correct the problem or make and adjustment
adjustments you can do from the remote once you in the menu
however if that doesn't fix your problem most likely it need convergence ic's

My tv has a convergence problem, what part will i need to repair it, and can i replace it myself?. thanks kevin.


Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

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

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

For more more examples and find a fix using this link on Fixya http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

Common 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.

Do you have the service codes for the JVC I'art AV-27F802? I have a set that has convergence & color calibration issues and I can't find the codes anywhere... Thanks


There is no much convergence adjustment inside service menu. Yes color it has RGB drive adj. but if not touch it will not change. Convergence mostly adjusted mechanically (check your purity magnet and yoke mounting). Hope it helps

Hi:
There if this is a DLP television there is no convergence adjustment on these models as they are digital. There might be a problem with the color wheel assembly. If this is a Mit's then the optics engine will need replacing, You forgot to mention the make and model of your TV.

Having trouble adjusting lenses and color to correct settings.


Are you adjusting the TV using the menu or did you open the set up and turn the knobs. I hope you did not adjust the knobs without some instruction.


It may be a convergence failure. ( common problem ) or cloudy CRT fluid.

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 are some photos of convergence problems.

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.

0667c5f.pngSOLUTION

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

WS-65907 Picture problem


Greetings joanne7,

The issue you are having could be caused by your television needing the convergence adjusted. During production your televison has the three picture tubes that are converged to form a single image on the screen. Over time these can come out of adjustment.
If you go to this link http://download.jazel.net/misc/filecache/b8/b89bca4c8b740315d378e8ed030461c5_1227-517SeriesOwnersGuide.pdf and check pages 57 and 58, it gives you a very detailed guide on adjusting your convergence. I am aware this model number is slightly different than yours, but I own a 47" Mitsubishi and this is the exact procedure we use to do our convergence so I am confident it is fairly universal.

The reason that they might snap back into place when you hit the base is that they are actually three different colored picture tubes or rods. By hitting the unit, you are moving these. I would suggest doing convergence on a regular basis and to avoid hitting your tv. :)

I hope this helps!

Dorothy
