Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. You have to replace the convergence IC(stk ICs) and check power resistor for leakage, if values are not exact you have to replace them. The typical cost to get this fixed by a pro is about $300 - and it doesn't mean that he/they will do a job better than you do. The parts are less than $100 (about $20-$30 for the IC's) if you want to do it yourself. Replacing only the IC's MAY solve the problem; however, many people have also had blown resistors requiring replacement. Why would you ask should you replace both of the IC's if only one is shot?! If one is shot the other one is not far away and for that little price of the chips it worth changing them both at the same time. Also the convergence board should be checked for cracked solder. If you replace the ICs and the resistors are shot, the ICs may blow again almost immediately, meaning you may have to do the repair twice.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

    Its been 13years for the set so I dont think adjusting convergence might help you. If you want to buy parts you can buy it out from this link: Toshiba T55H60 parts. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


    Thanks

Red light keeps flashing on toshiba theatre. How can I fix it?


on the older sets it is a short and usually in the convergence circuit, the way to know is located the convergence chips and unsolder both from the board (18 pins each) and if set then comes on (WILL LOOK BAD) one of the two chips is bad and both need to be replaced----should be stk-392=110 chips.

Toshiba Rear Projection TV picture color is now a greenish hue


Hi, I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:  

http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=3229 

If you are not able to adjust the convergence using the remote you will need to replace the convergence chips. 

Typical Symptoms

1) Convergence menu does not work for one or more colors.  
Such as: Red moves up,down, but left or right fails. 

2) Screen is bowed looking.

If you have one or more of the problems above you need to replace the convergence chips. You can get a kit and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com  

Hope this helps :)

Panasonic PT-47WXC43G Red Color problem


This is a convergence problem; in the customer menu there is an option to adjust it----if red or blue will not move in some direction---one of the two convergence IC's is bad and both need to be replaced.

I have step by step instructions telling what you will need for this repair. They are in Microsoft word----let me know if you want them and I will email them to you. You can buy both chips for this set on Ebay for about 13 dollars plus shipping for a pair.

Convergence problem red lines are out of wac on


Most of these sets use two STK-392-110 convergence IC's; both along with any open resistors around them need to be replaced and the set adjusted.

You can buy the chips on Ebay for less than 13 dollars(look for suburban electronics--Sewsale--they have the best price on these parts and give a 6 month warranty) if you are able to replace them yourself if not, look for someone in your area to do the job for you; this is the slow time of year for TV repair shops---some shops get 300 or more for this repair. I fix a lotof these smaller sets(42 etc) for 200 parts and labor.

Find someone and make sure BOTH IC's are replaced. If you have questions let me know here. I do this for free so if this was helpful give me a vote here.

Power light blinks off and on, nothing else


try unplugging the three convergence yokes then try powering up the set to see if it powers up. If it does replace both convergence ICs

Toshiba TP50H95 TV Won't turn on - Pete


You will need to trouble shoot the start up and shutdown circuits. Often this is a minor component failing causing the set to not power up or go into protective shutdown. Do you have the service manual for this TV?

The convergence wouldn't cause it to go all green. Green outlines yes but, not all green. Get a technician to look at it.
