Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Hi SD Tech, I am having the same problem with my set (weird colors on the screen, words have shadows and the alignment is off as well). A few years ago we had a repair guy come out to fix the set because of the same problem. My wife was here but did not pay much attention. She thinks that the repair was made to the convergence board as you helped someone else repair. We have pulled the board out but would like to know how to get the chips out (STK392-120) and who is your supplier on Ebay. Thanks in advance for your help.

If Philips, Magnavox the board did not need to come out--only one Hitachi uses the 120 chips.

What happens here is sometimes a tech will only replace one of the chips--stupid but it happens a lot.

Supplier on EBAY: select advanced search, then search by seller---

sewsales55 is the one I use--Company is called Suburban Electronics in Maryland and they also have a online catalog--EBAY prices are a bit lower.

Good quality and fast shipper (usual shipping 3-4 dollars) and a pair of the chips go for under 14 dollars.

Considering here where I live the parts places get 22 each for them.....

Be sure you are careful unsoldering them and use fresh heat grease on the new ones when you put them in. I can if you get that far tell you how to get into tech menu (let me know brand etc) and adjust and save the adjustments.


If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

On left half of the screen [ KP51WS510 ], a redish shadow showing


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

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Color ghosting or shadows


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

Blue shadows & black screen with flashing red light


Your problem is the convergence IC's (part number STK392-110). They will need to be replaced as well as matbe a couple of burned resistors that will be right by the IC's. Due to the complexity of this repair as well as the alignment required after the parts are replaced. you may want to contact a tech. Let em know if I can be of further assistance. You can find a local tech by going to the homepage of FIXYA and inputting your zip.

Hi, you have a convergence problem, the IC`s and possibly a few precision resistors feeding the IC`s will have to be replaced, not an easy job if you haven`t done it before. If you are very proficient at solder work and can use a volt meter to check the resistors you can do the job but it isn`t easy for a lay-person, If you have more questions e-mail me back, good luck, BMW Rider

Color alignment


It sounds like one of your convergence IC's has burned out and needs to be replaced. The defective IC will have to be replaced, the low-value resistors next to it checked and the convergence circuits realigned. If you do not have any experience working inside projection sets, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.
