Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

CONVERGENCE I HAVE A 60" PHILIPS MAGNAVOX PROJECTION AND WHEN I MOVED THE TV APPROX 45 MILES I PLUGGED IT IN AND NOW IT IS BOWED TOP AND BOTTOM AND THE THREE COLORS ARE NO LONGER ALLIGNED. I REPLACED IC CHIPS BUT THE PROBLEM DID NOT RESOLVE THE PROBLEM. I HAVE A SERVICE MANUAL AND WENT THROUGH THE CONVERGENCE SEQUENCE AND IT WILL NOT ADJUST. HOW CAN I CHECK AND SEE IF THE RESISTORS ARE BAD AND IS THAT MY NEXT STEP. ANY ASSISTANCE WOULD BE APPRECIATED

You need to remove 1 leg of each resistor near the ICs out of circuit to check it. If its open thats the only way to tell they cant be checked in circuit. Let me know if you need further assistance.

The Phillips DPTV305 - DPTV345 convergence repair kit should fix that problem. Its available from www.tvrepairworld.com and the kit also contains the instructions.

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.

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.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

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.

O K, the misalignment is usually caused by a failure in the convergence output circuit. If the customer convergence alignment is no help then the outputs ic's are suspect.

can you post a picture of your screen or send it to my email slinteriors@yahoo.com as it sounds like its just the convergence Ics and the 6.8 ohm resistors, but a pic would help me do a accurate diagfnosis.

Are your colors out of convergence also? If so this is a classic symptom of bad Convergence ICs.

Replaced two IC's and still the same problem????


U say the set is bowed in from top, could this be a foldover? If so then the ic problem may not help. Check to see if any fluid leakage has dropped on your deflection board. If so then you probably will need to clean and replace some capacitors. This is kind of common with the philips projo's. Look around crt for fluid leakage and on board.
