LG RP-57NZ60P Rear Projection TV - alignment

Hi, hopefully a simple one. I've got an LG RP-57NZ60P (its made in Mexico April 2004) that's in great knick, shows a decent-ish picture but at the bottom of the screen the colors seperate into red blue and green. I'm wondering if there's a simple way to realign the system myself.

SOURCE: Sony KP-51WS500 Rear Projection TV colors are distorted.

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.

You need a new bulb. It's easy to install. Remove the lower panel. Remove the 2 screws that hold the buld casing. Remove the bulb and replace with a new one. Replace the screws then the lower panel.

This will save you about $300 in so called labor.

LG rear projection colours out of alignment

I have a similar problem with an LG (except my red is the one that is fine) and was able to talk to a tech in some detail about it. The tech prefaced by saying that he had done a hundred or so of these with exactly the same issue. This is very common and the life span of rear projection televisions is not great. Having said that, plasmas and LCDs are also limited in life span mostly due to modern high performance gaming machines which shorten the lifespan of monitors both plasma and LCD alike.

From what I have gathered, this is not a problem that you can easliy sort out. (Of course they would say that though) It involves replacing the digital board which means soldering followed by aligning the lamps which requires quote a lot of expertise.

The part itself apparently costs around $200 Australian and the labour will vary for the cost of the technician but I was quoted that the labour was about the same cost as the part.

Not sure if I would call this solved but I hope it has been at least a little helpful.

Have heard that it's a common problem, there's an issue with the optical block. Sony is susposed to be aware of the problem & has exptended the warranties on some models or offers gift cards towards the purchase of a new tv, depending on how hard u push once u get someone on the phone.

Pioneer 58" SD-582HD5 1080i -Rear Proj TV

Like most problems with this model, check and re-solder the connections on the power supply board on the right rear of the tv, just behind where the main power cord goes in. Most problems are around the upper left corner where the white connectors E-12 and others. Check all of them from loose and cold solder solder connections on the board. Hope this helps.
