Convergence Issue...Toshiba TheaterVision HD 55H70

My set wouldn't tun on at all and had the flashing LED on front like many. I got the courage and replaced both IC STK 392-110s cause it seemed like I had a convergence issue right before the TV started acting up.

On power up, no smoke, no pop. Good news.

It now turns on and I have picture but the red is way off in spots. I tried adjusting convergence wtth the menu option but the red is so far off i cant bring it back to the cross hairs across the top and the bottom.

I have read on here that many sets have a higher level adjustment menu accessible through a special service menu of some sort. Does anyone know if this particular set has such?.. and how do I access?

This is the only TV we have.. any help greatly appreciated.

You probaly should be able to access the controls for that through the service menue. I dont have that info. However you can get a service manual for 10.99 at the following link, and if you purchase one they will mail it to you, unless you go back to the site and click on the contact them link and request that it be emailed to you. they also offer free support with the purchase of a manual so they can help you diagnose your set. I am one of their techs also. Heres the Link.

Toshiba 55h70 Convergence IC

I used the SONY stk180's on my 55h70 and works great...2 years no problem.

Get the real thing though....the knockoffs do fail

I also made sure the contact surfaces between the IC's and the heatsinks were properly cleaned and used "Arctic Silver Thermal Paste" applied in an even thin coat on all contact surface areas.

Toshiba 55h70 turns self off

It sounds like your Convergence IC's have gone bad. This is a $300-$600 repair depending on where you live. I have recently changed them myself and it's not that hard if you have common sense and patience. If you do it yourself, you can do it for under $100.
The parts you need are 2 STK392-110 convergence amps and it's best to replace all 6 resistors that are related to the convergence amps as well.
Part numbers on the resistors are 24323129 and you can find then at

Double imaging

The Toshiba 55H70 is a standard rear projection set. It does not have a "lamp", it has 3 picture tubes. When the colors suddenly do not line up on the screen, it means that one of your convergence output IC's has burned out and needs to be replaced. This is very common on those sets. If your set is using the STK392-110 IC's, it is probably a good idea to go ahead and replace both IC's with the newer upgraded STK392-150 IC's. The IC's should be replaced and the convergence circuits realigned by a qualified tech familiar with Toshiba projection sets.
