Go into the customer menu with the remote and look for "convergence" if the red or blue will not adjust in some direction you have a bad convergence chip. This set uses 2 STK-392-120 chips---both need to be replaced along with any of the 6.8 ohm resistors around them that are bad--a bad resistor will be discolored or white in the middle.

With the back cover off the chips are located on two metal heat sinks on the large board on the left side (as you look from the back) and both will have the STK-392-120 number printed on them in white--the chips are black in color.

Most of the time you just need to replace both chips and adjust the set with the remote control. You can buy both chips for about 13 dollars on Ebay--if you can do this repair yourself you will save a lot of money!

Most shops charge 300-400 for this kind of repair---I do lots of them here for 200-250 including parts, labor and house call. Now is the slow time of year for TV repair shops--shop around--if they say "it has to go to shop" keep looking; any good tech can do this repair in your home and it usually takes about an hour.

I do not know how much skill you have but if you need instructions I will help you. This problem happens for a simple reason--the chips are about 2 inches wide and 1 1/2 inches tall with 18 pins each--the back of each is metal and a white grease is applied to each to transfer heat quickly to the metal that they are bolted to. After some years the grease dries out from the heat and one of the chips cannot move the heat fast enough and it fails.

Blue & yellow stripe on bottom of screen at first now red and green like 3d


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 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.

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 email and they will put one together for you. Their kits includes photo instruction guides, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

Tv convergence


You will need to have a qualified technician replace the convergence IC's and possibly 2 resistors
If you are somewhat experienced with properly unsoldering the old parts without damaging the pc board you can replace the IC's yourself.
Most Philips CRT Projection televisions use 2 generic number STK392-120. These are mounted on a large aluminum heat sink
and soldered to the bottom of the pc board
There are sometimes 2 or more resistors that may be burned most often these are 6.8 ohm 1 watt

These parts can be found at www.tritonicsinc.com be sure to get the "original Sanyo" or the Philips brand, do not use the cheaper versions that come from China

good luck
