Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence youconv problems with no pic has sound - 69189a5.pngix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

No picture or sound with a red flashing power light. Have replaced the convergence IC's but no change (do not have the chirpint sound). Removed main power board & green LED does not light up


On that model the conv IC is usually not the solution. I believe its the blown capacitor problem with is an easy fix. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com for a repair kit.

Change the STK 392 IC's on their heat sinks. Check for bad resistors in the area. Check for open pico fuses. That should fix it. Let me know if this helps.

Bow in pic


sounds like some of the 3.9ohm 1 watt resistors are open some will get destroyed when the ICs go out and you can tell by looking at them they need to be checked with one side unsoderd and lifted from circuit

Go in and find the conv ICs, they will be mounted on a
big heatsink and the wires going to the conv yokes will
most likely plug in somewhere closeby.
Conv ICs are the workhorse of the CRT RPTV, and it is
not unusual at all for them to need to be changed out
at some time in the life of a CRT RPTV.

PS -
The wires for the conv yokes at the CRT necks are the
thin ones. The thicker ones are for the hor and vert
sweeps, which must never be disconnected from their
circuitry during CRT operation.

If your beam loses sweep on any of the CRTs, it will
instantly score/gouge your phosphors on your CRT faces,
vaporizing the phosphors there and ruining the CRTs.
The beam is very powerful, but in normal operation
moves incredibly fast, not damaging anything. Any
slowdown of the movement of the very powerful beam that
draws the picture, acts like the searing vaporizing beam in Tom Cruise's War of the Worlds.
