Re: Convergence module

To start on how to dissasemble the whole thing I went to but this was for my philips 60 inch TV, the process is the same, you need to open the back of tv then start numbering all the cables it was for me about 22 cables & then remove the chassis out, then you will see two stk's 392-120??? or depending for your model may be different these are 2 black modules, also when they burn out usually 2 resistors will burn as well you need to check their resistance with a multimeter. It's easy you can get a multimeter at a near Electronic components store I found it on the yellow pages for my city the stk modules are $8.50 & the resistors are .25 cents each I spent about $35 dlls for the whole thing cause I had the mulitmeter & solder & the ironing solder You can buy everything at try to buy everything you need online only one time cause they charge around $7.90 dlls for shipping so take advantege on ordering all together I made the mistake I ordered the stk's modules & not the resistors but I found them like I said in a local Electronics components store.
P.S. the stk's are more expensive at Ebay, good luck
