Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Solution #1

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Solution #2


What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Go in and find the conv ICs, they will be mounted on a big heatsinkred color off line - 1.gif and the wires going to the conv yokes will most likely plug in somewhere closeby.

Conv ICs are the workhorse of the CRT RPTV, and it is not unusual at all for them to need to be changed out at some time in the life of a CRT RPTV.

Comment by MrBob84, posted on Feb 04, 2008 PS -
The wires for the conv yokes at the CRT necks are the thin ones. The thicker ones are for the hor and vert sweeps, which must never be disconnected from their circuitry during
CRT operation.

If your beam loses sweep on any of the CRTs, it will instantly score/gouge your phosphors on your CRT faces, vaporizing the phosphors there and ruining the CRTs. The beam is very powerful, but in normal operation moves incredibly fast, not damaging anything. Any slowdown of the movement of the very powerful beam that draws the picture, acts like the searing vaporizing beam in Tom Cruise's War of the Worlds.

Red & green shadowing on the right side of picture


First thing to try is a convergence but with the red shadowing seems to me that you may have your color gun going. Convergence can be found in your video menu on your setup screen. Once in the menu you can adjust the colors to line up. This usually has to be done on a tv that has been moved.

Blue will not focus causing "shadows". Magic focus will not solve the problem.

Red color convergence issue; Red lines are curved


This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Green tint on Samsung Television


Hi sbatsch,

Not to worry - this problem is very common with projection TVs and is easily fixed:

The reason for the green shadows (and the resulting wrong colors) is that the three color tubes (red, green, and blue - the three colors of light that combine to form all the other colors) are not lined up exactly - this lining up is known as "convergence." You can fix convergence automatically or, if it doesn't work to your satisfaction, manually. Here's how:

Automatically:
1) Press MENU.
2) Go down to CONVERGENCE (using the up and down arrows)
3) Select it (usually with the left or right arrow)
4) Go down to AUTO and select it - the process should take about a minute.

If this doesn't work, then try manually:
1) MENU
2) CONVERGENCE (as above)
3) Select MANUAL
4) Using the number keys, SELECT, and the arrow keys, adjust the alignment of the different color crosses - the goal is to make them appear white (meaning that the red, blue, and green are exactly aligned on top of one another).

Here's a link to the JVC user manual that will explain the manual convergence adjustment in more detail.

http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/96/52105ien.pdf

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Red color not lined up


You can try making adjustments to the convergence in the user menu. If they still will not line up you will need to have the convergence ICs replaces along with a few resistors in the convergence circuit. Fairly common in many rear projection TVs.

Suddenly, the screen shows double images on letters and numbers plus red/greenish like shadows on characters.


Youre convergence Ics need to be replaced. post the model number of your set and I will post the STK number that you need and a link where you can get new replacement ICs

Convergence problems, try to go to menu and set if will not set then you may have problems on board. You may have to change amps. Replace return resistors too!
