    what are the ic chips and how can i get them fixed???

  • theedwards Feb 03, 2008

    ok..that was confusing..didnt understand what you were saying besides buy a manual for it online...and could having the xbox 360 have anything to do with it? and how easy it is to fix this..my hubby knows how to solder

  • theedwards Feb 03, 2008

    oh ok....so if you think that i can open the back up and cool the parts off and blow off dust and such from the ic chips that it will fix the problem temporary?? is the tv getting to hot??

  • theedwards Feb 03, 2008

    hey...i placed a fan behind our tv.. and it doesnt look like its helping to clear up the double/blurred vision and the half moon at the top....will this take a while for it to cool down or is the problem just to bad that it wont fix in your opinion??

  • theedwards Feb 03, 2008

    im sorry im having a hard time comprehending what you are telling me?? i understnad the ic chips are bad but you suggested the fan helping....any other advice or or anything to get this half moon and blurred off the screen?? should i power the tv off for a while to see if that helps

  • theedwards Feb 03, 2008

    ok...so....is the IC the ones that start w/ part number STK?? just wondering

  • theedwards Feb 03, 2008

    yeah thats what i thought...so in all those are just getting to hot and stopped working right?

  • theedwards Feb 03, 2008

    thanks so much for all your help....so you think if i turned the tv off and let the fan blow on it for a while it MAY work? im sorry....im just a girl who knows nothing about tvs ....lol ...thanks for your patience!

  • theedwards Feb 03, 2008

    no, it does it as soon as the tv is powered on..it did it one other time before we did picture perfect focus then powered it off and turned it back on again and it was fine....its been fine for about a week now then last night we turned it off went to bed got up this morn and turned it on and it was like this.....so i cant see how it got hot over night???

  • theedwards Feb 03, 2008

    ok....so my next question is this....ive read wehre ppl change between 490p and other things besides the 1080i...can i do this on my tv as well and if so how and do yout hink it will help?

I have a samsung 1080i, i've opened the back and see a part on the large circuit board that is getting so hot that it glows orange and smokes with a terrible odor. can these boards be repaired or do you have to just replace them?

Hello tv has warped bottom and top screen on a rear projector samsung and blurred vision with red,green blue colurs not aligned tried to tune to no avail Samsung rear projector tantus sp42w4/42w5


The colors tell me of a convergence IC issue, warped bottom and top tell of another.

see this page on reparing the convergence problem yourself
http://cmpalmer.blogspot.com/2006/11/fixing-my-own-tv-part-ii.html

also compair the before and after pictures to see if this is the other problem your having.

Then you have another fault, which im not completely sure of right now. I will look into it.

My tv projection screen is blurred by red and blue and green lines...the tv looks like it is double visioned...in other words...it show the same person next to the orginal person like 2 inches apart what...


You have a Convergence circuit failure. Both Convergence IC's probably need to be replaced and possibly a small value resister also is burnt and needs to be replaced. I recommend that a Qualified Service Person come out and verify the failure and give you a estimate. I would estimate around 380.00 to 400.00 for repairs. (This also includes the Service Call fee.)
Hope this helps,

Double vision on my samsung HDTV 1080i


If one or more of the colors, red, green or blue have separated from each other and you can`t correct the problem using the convergence procedure as described in the users manual, that would indicate you have a convergence problem. Bad solder connections on the convergence output chips are common. If the set had a rough ride down the stairs while moving, that may have facilitated in exposing a preexisting condition. However, the most likely cause is the natural failure of one of the convergence output chips and or related components and not the move. The fix is to have a qualified technician address the problem. This is not a do it yourself job.

RED AND GREEN DOUBLE AND BLUR PICTURE HELP PLEASE


You have a convergence problem. Components are shorted out and must be replaced. Unless you're a technician, there's really nothing you can do at this point.

Blurred/double vision Samsung HDTV 1080i projection


Your convergence ICs are bad and maybe the two resistors right next to them. This is an easy and inexpensive repair if you can solder. A repair shop will run about 400.00 The parts are readily available for about 10.00 each you will need two ICs STKXXX-XXX
Look inside your set for a large aluminum heat sink that's where hey are located they will have an STK number like above stamped on them. Those are the part numbers. Let me know what type of TV and model number you have and I can help you locate the proper parts.
