GO INTO THE CUSTOMER MENU AND SELECT CONVERGENCE--do not adjust the green which is the first option some of these sets offer---if you find red or blue are skewed and or will not adjust you have a CONVERGENCE circuit problem.

Considering if this is the case, total parts cost for the repair will be under 30 dollars if you can do it yourself, you can save the set and a lot of money--most shops get 300 or more for this type of repair.

I HAVE START TO FINISH, STEP BY STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS TYPE OF REPAIR IN THESE SETS--they tell you everything you will need and how to do it

I can tell you the best place to buy the chips and I will help you if you have problems during the repair.

I have repaired hundreds of these sets with convergence problems--usual repair takes about a hour---longer if you are doing it the first time.

LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT THE INSTRUCTIONS AND OR IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS- I am here to help people.

The picture is producing a double image which appears to be in red only with a slight bending of the images on some parts of the screen.


Your Convergence ICs have failed. It is very common on rear projections. The solution is to replace the STK chips, check fuses and the resistors next to the STK chips. Replace as necessary and re-align via the service menu. It is about a $300 repair at a tv service center. You will need the service manual if you decide to do this yourself.

Try This:
When you notice the symptons Use this simple test to verify.
Go to the users menu on the tv.
Look for the converge option probably under setup or video setting. Converge is short for convergence to align the red and blue colors to the green color.

If you cannot move the red either horizontal or vertical, then the STK chip has failed for red section.
If you cannot move the blue either horizontal or vertical, then the STK chip has failed for the blue section.

If you can move both in each direction then the problem is something else.


Note if one STK chip fails, you replace both regardless.

Panasonic Model #PT51HZ41E Blue is not converging, red and green perfect. Blue lines move but will not converge have replace STK392-110 checked all resistors what else could the problem be


On my Panasonic PT-56TW53, the down left quarter of the screen has a big colour distorsion. Convergence can adjust blue and red, but green is not able to show a straight line. Is tis a mechanical adjstment? Help would be great.

The screen on my panasonic is warped towards the middle from the bottom of the screen. i also cant converge the green lamp as its colour is outta whack. the blue and red will converge though


You probably want to replace both IC's and possibly a few low value resistors gouped close to each IC on the aluminum heat sinks. The IC's wil have STK392-1xx written on them. Replace with either stk392-150 or 180's.

I have a Panasonic PT-53WX54J that will not Converge


you need to replace or have professional convergence amplifiiers. If know how to desolder and solder you could repair yourself or in home professional tv repairperson will cost you $275-$400. The convergence adjustments via remote are half the battle the IC's loose clarity over time.

Ghosting in Red, Green and blue


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Converge Problem


Replace the two STK392-110 Convergence IC's. I had the same exact issue and I replaced mine last night. When I turned it back on, i just went the two convergence options and it looks better than i ever remember!
