Hi, I bought a Barco Reality Sim 6 on eBay for relatively cheap ($300) but am having some issues with it despite having found the manual in PDF form and having fiddled with the options I could find under the INSTALLATION and SERVICE MENUS. The biggest issue is that though I can achieve sharp focus in the center of the screen, the RGB signals seem to diverge towards the edges of the image. From far away, this makes the image seem blurry but within one foot of the screen it becomes evident that, say, a white line is actually being projected as red, green, and blue lines slightly misaligned vertically and horizontally. Now, I have been using the built-in test patterns to check the image and have not actually connected a signal....would this make any difference? Also, the manual lists one option under SERVICE that seems like it may fix my problem (electronic convergence) but it doesn't show up on my machine.
Any ideas would be appreciated as this could be one very nice projector if only it can be adjusted properly...

Hi, The Mitsubishi TV set you have uses two of the STK 392-570 convergence correction IC's. These IC's can be purchased from here
These are the original Sanyo replacement type IC's. No aftermarket cheapo ones. Unfortunately this board that the IC's come on is part of the main Printed circuit boards. If one was available for a replacement, it would cost in the range of about 400 bucks. The way it sound that your TV set is intermittent, is that the IC's are not bad, but need to be simply re soldered. This happens a lot with this model number or set of convergence IC's. To tell you the truth, I have had to replace these types of convergence IC's very rarely. Mostly when the set come on with bad convergence and does not change. Find a friend or a neighbor who can solder, find the black STK392-570 IC's standing up against a large metal plate, turn over the printed circuit board and resolder all of the pins, just double check all of the solder points for solder bridges. Good Luck
I don't believe that you can purchase this lamp as a bare bulb through official channels. It is an expensive lamp + projector and buying cheap copies is likely to be a risky business, definitely not supported by Barco. Prices seem to start at around £3500 GBP (ex VAT) or $5500 USD (ex TAX)
If you are in the UK, here are the 1st two suppliers I found
Given the fact that it is such an expensive lamp you should be able to negotiate a competitive price. I'd get on the phone to any potential supplier and ask them for their very best price rather than buying off the net.
WS-55857 uses two STK-392-570 convergence IC's----you may have bad solder connections on them but what is more likely(I have seen this in sets that Mitsubishi made that use this chip) is that some of the pins are broken loose inside one or both of the chips.
Considering the labor to get the board out to resolder it, might as well just replace BOTH of the chips------Usually this repair can be done right in your home and takes about an hour.
If you are able to do it yourself you can buy both chips for less than 15 dollars on Ebay; if you need help I have complete step by step instructions for this repair that tells what you need and how to do the repair---if interested I can email them to you.
If you are not able to do the repair most shops charge 300-400 for this kind of repair; look in your area and if they say "needs to go to shop" keep looking; any good tech can do this repair right in your home.
Now is the slow time of year for TV repair shops so look around--I do this kind of repair here for 200-250 depending on the set --right in someones home! I have done hundreds of these sets.
If you need any help or would like the instructions reply to this comment here.
I do this for free here so if it helped you take a minute and give me a vote here.
There are a few aftermarket sim wafer-thin adapter chips... you can get a new one on ebay..
look for "universal sim unlock" or turbo unlock... they are relatively cheap and simply slide in between your sim and the sim connectors...
Good ol' ebay has new and reman HP 60's black and color at rock bottom prices and they ship cheap. I haven't had good luck refilling HP 60 either, but search ebay for "HP60 inkjet cartridges" and you'll see many options. I bot 2 remanufactored ones and one was dead. The two cheap new ones I got were good. The " refill kit" I got was a disaster even after the seller refunded all my money. Good luck and happy shopping.
