If you try to adjust convergence with manual convergence and the lines will not line up or even move. What you might be experiencing based on this symptom sounds like a damaged convergence IC.

With any Projection Television that has a damaged convergence IC, you do not want to continue the use of the set. If the IC’s continue to fail they will cause a short in the power supply and cause your television to not power up, and possibly damage the CRT’s in the set.

With that aside I have some support suggestions that I have put together that may help you make an informed decision.

You should be able to get a local service center to repair this at your house for between $350.00 - $450.00, If you want to repair this set yourself, I have some instructions below that will be a help to you.
While it is not a very hard repair, this repair can be a bit tricky. If you have a 45W soldering iron, solder, solder wick, and heat sink compound you can repair it yourself.

When you remove the old IC's, please be sure to remove all of the old heat sink compound, as it can act as an insulation for the new IC's and cause them to overheat. I usually clean the heat sinks with alcohol and a small rag.

There are two and large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. Some of the newer sets only have one. If you only have one, it is right in the middle of the set on the center circuit board. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. They will have a part number stamped on them that will start with an STKXXX-XXX, like STK392-110.

Along with the convergence IC’s there will also be some associated components that will need to be replaced as well. There are some resistors that are part of the convergence circuit that will be open and need to be replaced. Most likely these will appear charred in the center. If you have an Ohm Meter or a DVM, check all the resistors that are close to the IC’s and you should be looking for either ones that have opened or have changed values.

If one of the convergence IC’s are found to be bad, I would replace them both, if one has gone bad the other may go soon. I usually order my parts from Andrews Electronics in California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is
http://www.andrewselectronics.com/welcome.aspx
And their phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.

I would also advise that the convergence IC’s be OEM or better, just because they are cheap does not mean that they are a good deal. I have seen the cheap IC’s fail after a short time, even though they look exactly like the OEM IC’s. I think that the bottom line is that you will get what you pay for when it comes to the parts.

You can also try
http://www.tvrepairkits.com/ , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.


I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

Thanks for using FixYa

I have attached some photos of really bad convergence problems; your picture may not be exactly as bad as these.

Pink and green diagonal lines rollng across the screen??? panasonic 42" Plasma . Only purchased about 3 years ago - but been used very rarely.


Have you tried lifting the ground on the TV? That set has a grounded (3-prong) plug and sometimes sccrolling lines can be caused by a ground loop in your power lines.Are the green and purple lines very short, like just a few rows of pixels tall, or multiple inches, like 3 - 8 tall?

I have a panasonic PT-47wxc43 projection tv. I have green and purple halos coming up from the bottom. The screen has purple and green double images which are worse from the bottom up.


Hi,
This problem is due to convergence output ICs failure and both chips will be replaced to fix the issue.
There are two big black ICs installed with aluminum heat sink on deflection board, these are convergence output ICs and will be replaced to correct the problem, it is common problem of rear projection tv.
Below image of deflection shows ICs (marked in red) that are need to be replaced.
IC number is STK392-110 and available with Part Store for $32 each.
Click above link to see an image of IC.
If you are handy with electronics stuff repair and can replace parts in tv circuit board then can replace these parts yourself or ask local tech to help you.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Problem with Panasonic 47'' HD Projection TV MN: PT47WX53G


You can get a bottle of replacement CRT coolant at the following link. But the spilled coolant will need to be thoroughly cleaned use denatured alcohol and let dry thoroughly as the coolant is corrosive and will destroy the solder, Components and traces of all items affected if not thoroughly cleaned.Heres where to get the coolant for the CRTs.

Panasonic Model No. PT-47WX42F


Replace the convergence amps. That unit takes two Sanyo STK392-110 and you could use 150's for greater reliability. Also replace one or more of the 1.2 ohm resistors in the yoke return circuit out front of the amps.
