Cant get convergence board settings

We recently were given a fisher 40 projection tv. Everything works fine on it except for the shadows and blurry picture. I took off back panel to expose convergence board with 10 different dial settings to align projected colors. Is there a certain way to set these dials because I tried to align the alignment screen for 2 hours and got no where?????

Confused In Fenton MI.

I suspect that the convergence board may be defective. If the convergence was okay before and then went out, this is a fault and not an adjustment! Adjusting only compounds the fault.
Look up the Sanyo home page on the net, and get their tech support. You can order a new convergence board, and the service manual to start.

It may be more practical for you to let their authorized service rep service the set for you. It is possible that you start buying the parts, and end up needing to troubleshoot for more faults. You will need the proper tools and training to get involved in troubleshooting your set.

I left my tv on when I went to bed and the picture was fine. Then I woke up and turned it off. When I came home and turned it back on, the picture was blurry all around the tv except in the middle of the...


is the blurry all around the picture have different color like a smear of red, blue or yellow?
if it is i think the posistor of your tv is not working. it is the one who activate the degaussing coil around the picture tube the prevent color miss-landing upon opening your tv set.

If it is a "minor" convergence problem you can adjust it by going to the menu and scrolling to convergence and follow prompts A cross will appear when you have reached the correct place and you do the minor adjustments as it says. If picture is bowed you have major convergence problems.

Blurry video


You got some wrong advice I am afraid. Hope it was not a Tech that told you this LOL As i would never call them again!! LOL No such thing as that in a projection TV set. Your problem is the convergence IC's inside the TV set, on a printed circuit board. Both will need to be repalced. If you have some solid state repair experience, you could unsolder these IC's and reinstall new ones, but if you do not please play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck.

The convergence Ics need replaced. In Hitachi, resistors and sometimes a coil needs replaced as well. The convergence/deflection PCB is available, but, the cost of that board is higher than having a servicer come to your home and repair the unit to component level. If you are not familar with this circuit, then call a servicer. Have them replace both ICs not just one. Make sure they are repairing to component level and not replacing the board. Hope this helps.
