Re: how can I fix my 56" widescreen jvc

Ok. let start this process. are the colors seperated? RED GREEN BLUE Then this is suspect will be a convegence problem. which 85 percent of the time is what is know as convergence ic chip failure. a electronic part replacment. are you a tech or know how to solder. any experince would be helpful but i would have to admit this really is not a job for non techs there are setup issues. at our shop the cost of such a repair averag 135 to 250

The picture is showing multiple images with red, green and blue rainbow effect. The picture is also bowed on the top and bottom

This is whats called a convergence failure. You will need to call in a repair shop or goto sites like hthat ave the parts to fix this yourself. Its a common failure on projection TV sets.

JVC TV Convergence 3-D Problem

This is not a reset problem. Either the solder connections on the convergence ICs are poor or the ICs themselves have beccome defective. If you cvan solder, try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, you will need to replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heat sink and should be marked STKxxx.

Check that the 3 output plugs are in the right sockets (Red, Blue, Green) There is usually a felt pen colored mark on a white tape on the plug in wires. The Board sockets are marked Red, Green, Blue.

You need to re-solder the circuit board that contains the STK convergence modules. They're on the center circuit board attached to an aluminum heat sink that's about 8" long and 6" tall, about dead center in the circuit board. You may be able to recreate the problem (hour glass effect) by gently moving the heat sink (which the modules are connected to). This gives the hour glass effect on the picture and the advanced convergence screen. This is an indication that the modules pins aren't solidly connected (meaning soldered) properly. Remove the circuit board and clean the old solder off & resolder the modules pins to the circuit board reconnected the board and then retest by again pushing on the heat sink. This is a caused by a minimum effort (a.k.a. minimum cost) solder job, probably done in some 3rd world sweat shop. The "factory" job was good enough for 3-4 years but the heat (and these modules do create a lot of heat) and stress created from repeated use eventually takes it's toll, weakens the pin connections and our problem occurs. take the appropriate cautions working around the high voltage of the set & use a non-conduting piece of wood to push the heat sink when we doing tests. Best of luck, hope ya fix it.

Have you tried to adjust the convergence? If you can't get them to line up then you may need to replace the ICs.

Screen is bowed (top and bottom) Color has a green and purple tint?

Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.
