Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Toshiba TZ55V61 Hi all, My TV has shaded text appearing lately, and I have been reading about it. It sounds like I need to replace IC's. Being not a TV tech but know PCs well, will this be something like replace them by pulling out and putting new ones? Will it require soldering? just wondering if I can do this and myself or a TV tech is essential? Kindly advise. Thanks.

    thank you very much! following your suggestions I was able to use the arrows to shift the colors red and blue to align with the + on the center of the screen to make it white. Until now I did not know how to set it, although I had seen the screen several times and I was not setting it correctly. Followed your instructions and bingo! Phew, now I don't have to mess with IC's.



    Thanks

    Nick

Hi, I`m assuming your saying the letters on the screen have different colors (red, blue, or green) shifted to the left or right?
If so try going into the menu and adjusting your "convergence"
adjustments, basically, move the red onto the green then move the blue onto the green and the bar turns white, if one or more of the colors doesn`t adjust either up/down or left/right then the convergence IC`s have failed, this will require removal of the board and unsoldering the old IC`s and installing and soldering in the new IC`s, questions? e-mail me back, BMW Rider

When you try to turn the tv on, all you get is a blinking red light, if you unplug for awhile, sometime it will come on.


Symptom: tv turns on, tv clicks once, red light comes on. Then, tv either works for a while, followed by a click, no video, normal sound and flashing red light; or, tv immediately clicks, no video, no sound, red light flashes. If that is the problem, you need to replace the convergence ICs. I had to do this twice. The two convergence ICs are mounted on palm-sized aluminum heat sinks. The heat sinks are soldered to the main circuit board. There are 4 pins soldered to the board for each heat sink, and 18 pins soldered to the board for each IC. Some of the heat sink pins are a bit difficult to desolder. The pins for the ICs are not difficult to desolder, but you must be careful not to overheat them. The heat sink and the IC come out as a unit, after all pins are desoldered. The IC is screwed to the heat sink. The correct replacement IC is a Sanyo STK392-110. I got mine from B&D Enterprises. They were not expensive. The new ICs need to be mounted to the heat sink with a heat transfer paste. I used Arctic Silver from my computer processor heat sink. Installation of the heat sink/IC assembly is a bit tricky, since you have to align all 18 IC pins and the 4 heat sink pins. When all the pins are visible through the holes in the circuit board, resolder everything. The TV should now work. Be sure to replace both ICs. My first repair was done by a technician, who obviously only replaced one. That repair only lasted a couple years, before the problem returned.

Tosiba TZ55V61 Convergence IC 150?s vs 110?s


STK392-150 can be replacement for 110's no other resister values need to be changed, however be sure bad resisters are replaced and check all the resisters (6) have been taken out of circuit and checked. also check for solder cracks and cold solder joints.
