    I just found your informative site here. I have a Mits. 50" proj. TV which is only about 6 1/2 years old. I have those double images which the other person described, and some of the colors are showing up like crossed over and slanted. Can you please give a ball park idea on what a repair may cost me. I'm thinking it may also be this "convergance" problem but I dont know too much about that. Thank you very much

Chances are the repair man wanted to sell you a whole board because with mitsubishis this problem is amost always the convergence ic's also in that model very seldom the resistors burn out in that unit its almost always the IC's that do that. I looked for you information you have an old chassis but I think its similar to the Vz2 I believe you need IC number STK391-020 thats based on theVz2 chassis but pls double check and you need 2 of them you can also save yourself if you know how to solder a lot of money by replacing them yourself its about a 45min job if I can help you any further pls let me know or if you would like a link where you can buy your parts very reasonable with tech online support let me know

Yes it can be fix, first try to adjust the convergence setting in the setting menu then go to convergence section, adjust the red and blue convergence. You should be able to move the red and the blue convergence up, down and left, right but if you cannot move this far enough the convergence IC is defective and should be replaced. This convergence IC is attached to a large aluminum plate, this is the heat sink and the convergence IC has a marking of STK-#### followed by a number, in order to replace this IC you should have a soldering iron, desoldering pump, soldering lead be careful when pulling out the IC you may accidentally tampered or damage the PCB and caused much damage to the unit. Note before opening the back cover of your tv be sure to unplug it first. But if you are not familiar with electronic parts you can contact a service technician to do it for you and save you from stress good day and best regards.

Toshiba big screen Model TZ50V60 Convergence Issue-Chips Replaced


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

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

This is a convergence problem and is either bad connections at the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder, you can repair this yourself. Let me know if you wish to repair this and I can provide you with additional details.
