Tv was working and the reds wouldnt line up good did the convergence and they were acceptable not perfect though. now the tv went black. is it worth fixing?

Maybe so. Convergence is generally controlled by two large ic's " chips" from the symptoms you describe the convergence ic or stk's as they are commonly called are possible blown. When these short generally that will lead to a shutdown. There could be additional problems as always. Cost are difficult to deternine depending on where you get your repair. If the chips are the problem they generally average about 25 to 50 apeice for the chips. Our shop generally charged about 150 to 200 for such a repair. My advice is it is cost affective to repair this set. .Note: when these ic's blown they can damage other components that might add to cost of repair.

I have 55" akai rear

You are going to have to look for open PICO fuses along with bad bias resistors close to the ic's. You should have close to +27 and -27 volts of B+ on the chips to start with. That will ensure the fuses are good. Then trouble shoot the convergence circuit from there.

Tv wont turn on

You need 2 STK392-110 Convergence ICs and possibly 6 2.2 ohm 2watt resistors. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model from the kit contains the ICs, resistors and the CD with instructions. The PT47WX42 convergence kit is the correct one for your model.

I have a Mitsubishi WS-65711 that is six years

Go by number on your ICs If they are STK392-570 then use STK392-570 only! Call Mats for parts 10.95 each 1-800-628-1118 They are Big Black ICs mounted on Big Aluimmim heat sink will have STK on them!
