53swx10b bowed picture

After installing the Sanyo ic repair kit I have a great picture that is bowed at the top and bottom. Also, the magic focus no longer works. Any suggestions as to what would cause this?
Thanks.

Double check your work for errors such as solder bridges or incorrect resistor placement. Look carefully anywhere solder could have dripped or splattered to cause the bowing. If you entered the digital convergence mode to touch it up, you will have to re initialize the magic focus for it to function. Good luck

problem will be either Bad resistors ,in front of the Convergence ICs or ICs and resistors need to be replaced. ICs are big black ICs and will have part number on them STK392-110 use 120s or 150s

Bowed picture on Philips 55pp9352 after replacing IC's


You must have mishandled the ICs they are static sensitive, and unless you used Sanyo ICs then you will have problems. The convergence is obviously not working so the TV will need the digital convergence board repaired or replaced, also the PIP board is suspect I have seen plenty of these tvs and believe me I earned the $ 350 we charged. These sets are very difficult to work on even for a trained tech. the best thing to do is to have a repair shop do it and you will have the assurance that its done correctly, and the work is guaranteed, That makes sense. ( I will not be able to respond to any further inquires)

I purchased a tv repair kit and replaced the convergence ic chips to fix my convergence problem. put everything back together and now, no picture. I tried magic focus and it works great, the colors are...


As per statement, "the magic focus works great, the colors are bright and aligned" it means the tubes are working ..you need feed a signal to see the picture...the tv video goes muted without signal

Hitachi 50SBX78B Horizontal lines and bow


John, Hitachi site is down at the moment, if you remove the clips on the front of the IC`s you will see the numbers of the convergence ic`s, and yes they are a pain to get out, they are probably stk 392-110`s if they are the originals, you`ll have to un-solder 36 pins total to get them out, check for burnt resistors in the general area of the ic`s and replace any that are burnt before turning the set on,be sure to order a tube of "heat sink compound" to apply to the back of the new IC`s, once on the set will probably still look poor, this is normal, run the set for minimum of 15 minutes then push the " magic focus button " inside the front door panel, after it has finished running magic focus it should look great, video-tek

Too much red!


Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.

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.

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.

The convergence Ics need replaced. In Hitachi, resistors and sometimes a coil needs replaced as well. The convergence/deflection PCB is available, but, the cost of that board is higher than having a servicer come to your home and repair the unit to component level. If you are not familar with this circuit, then call a servicer. Have them replace both ICs not just one. Make sure they are repairing to component level and not replacing the board. Hope this helps.
