Dear Goldenman the IC you have specified is a converegence IC as Ekse has pointed out.. The problem is the IC has gone bad/ It is difficult to service this your self but if you wanna do this yourself i can help you replace it. It should cost you around 25-50$ for the IC

    Check if the value of the IC are as follows before replacing
    Main v. regulator IC U4101 (STK730-010) should have a negative 40 volts
    at pin 1 (pin 3 hot ground as reference) if working. If its zero volts then the IC is bad and you have to replace it..

Yes its most likely the convergence IC problem, you should perform a convergence test from service menu.

If you still have the problem after setting up convergence, you will need to check the fuses at the base of convergence IC and replace the convergence ICs or the whole board.

A repair tech should be able to do the job for you.
Your tv isnt a lcd so it cant be lamp problem I supose.

First of all, if you have any warranty or service plan, exercise them. Secondly, you can bring it to a local service center. There are also a lot of technicians willing to work on-site at your home. You mentioned an IC that needs replacing. I cross-reference that and it seems it is a very inexpensive part ($7.90) that you may be able to replace yourself if you have used a soldering iron. It is simply a switching regulator. It says it controls power switching on CRT displays. If your TV is a CRT don't bother with it, the repairs can cost you more than half of what a VERY decent LCD would. Go into a local Radio Shack and ask about the 37'' AKAI, it even has a built in DTV tuner, the picture is beautiful. It supports 1080i/p but it is scaled(1366x768).

I have a Hyundai rear television HY5111W.I noticed that picture became distorted then disappeared. Can you help me fix it


Hello

Watching standard cable on an HDTV can be quite a shock; the images are likely to be in a smaller aspect ratio, and have grainy or pixelated distortions. Additionally, the use of non-HD compatible devices, such as a DVD player, VCR, or older gaming system, will produce a less than stellar picture.

If you've changed the aspect ratio or your television, or have changed the zoom in or out, you may be encountering distortion that would otherwise not be noticeable. Setting the picture to a 1:1 ratio and turning off any overscan can help ensure a better quality image.

If you're using a system that supports HD, such as a Blu-ray player or an HD-compliant gaming system without the use of an HDMI cable, the image may be distorted. HDMI cables transmit both HD quality digital images and sound over one cable, and provide the best possible picture A/V signals.

Picture distorted with images and outlines


Unfortunately this is an unrepairable problem called screen burn.

This happens commonly with old displays and can only be fixed by replacement.

Philips 46-inch Rear Projection with bowed image?? slight distortion



You have a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms. 

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when when using the convergence menu. 
Screen is bowed in but stationary.

Solution: 
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit inlcludes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself. Its an easy fix.

Distorted image


Thats a strong possibility as the STK730-010 is the power amplifier for the convergence circuits. Its an inexspenive part to replace and easy to install. You can get a replacement IC at the following link and they provide free on line tech support for free as well as send instructions on how to replace the IC. Here is thier link if youd like it. I am one of thier on line tech supports as well as one of thier board rebuilders.

Picture distorted


Hello buddylaw,

Can you post a picture of the TV screen with the problem? It will help in the diagnoses. It looks like you may have a thermal sensitive component causing this issue. But I will have to seen a picture of the screen to properly diagnose this problem as to the possible section that may be causing this problem.

Thank you.
