SOURCE: convergence problem on a Philips projection TV

They should be STK392-120 but check the numbers on yours to be positive. They are located on the extreme left of the chassis looking inside the back panel mounted on a heat sink. They will have STK Numbers stamped on them. Yes you should change both of them they cost 10.00 each at You will need heat sink compound as well but this is better purchased at Radio Shack 2.00 per tube. Put a good coat of Heat sink compound on the back side of the new ICs. Also check over the resistors on the board next to the ICs sometimes 1 or 2 of those burn when the Cs go out. Let me know if you need anything further

Convergence problems! If the mechanical set-up and electronic adjusts aren't cutting it, you may very well have to replace one or more devices on the red conv board, including but not limited to, the conv IC....accordianman

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.


I DO THIS here for free so if this has helped you take a minute and give me a vote here.

Getting lines to line up

Hi, if the green isn't straight to begin with you will need to go into the convergence sub menu and align it there code is 062597 status then follow the instructions to adjust the green first, then red , then blue multipoint and save it.
pressing menu to switch arrows to move/adjust status to back up , make sure to scroll down to save multipoint before exiting, power off when done.
If any color will not move or is more than 1 inch out of adjustment you may need to check the resistors to that convergence color .
hope this helps

My Philips HDTV 60PP9202 has blue and red curved lines

Check to see if you can adjust the convergence. If you can't adjust the red and blue in all directions you need to replace the convergence chips and resistors. If you not sure how to check the convergence goto the site and goto the Tips section.

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.

Multipoint blue convergence cannot be adjusted

Sound like you need to replace the STK's and any blown pico's on convergence board.

Sounds like your convergence amps are probably bad. Check out and see if you have similar bowing between red and green when you try multipoint convergence. If so, you'll need new convergence amps, part STK392-120. Most people who are handy with a soldering iron can replace these parts in a couple hours.

Check the other posts for convergence problems. This may be what you're experiencing. Have you tried bringing it in with multipoint convergence? It's under Menu -> Picture -> Manual Converge -> Multipoint Red and Multipoint Blue.
