There is no chip for the green, Unless he is refering to the convergence Ics as there are two of them and one controls red convergence and half green, and the other controls blue convergence and the remaining green. Those ICs are 20.00 each and take about 30 minutes to replace both. Is your set experiencing a 3D type of picture?

    Thats a repair that you can easily do yourself for just the cost of the ICs. If you need more info please let me know.

Convergence problem


Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • 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.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

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

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

I got this TV for FREE from a guy posting it on craigslist because he saw "BLUE SWIRL LINES" also knows as "Retrace Line" on the screen and he went to several repair people and got high repair costs so he was giving it away for free, but i found a guide that tells you how to adjust the tv to make the blue or green or red lines go away, aparantly the line show up because the voltage on the color ray gun tubes that get out of adjustment. Here is the Link to the REPAIR GUIDE. http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html

Sony big screen tv not playing picture after 5 minutes or so


You have a bad picture tube, or perhaps a picture tube drive problem.. To see what is bad, remove the front speaker grill under the screen in the front. Remove the screws that hold on the board that covers the front. Insidfe this set, WITH THE TV SET UNPLUGGED< Locate which one of the tubes is the blue one. Gently pull off the board from the end of the picture tube and swap it with the green tube right next to it. The green tube is always the middle tube. If the blue comes up again, then the blue tube is bad and you will most likely be better off to buy a new TV set. If the green comes up as the bright one, swap back the boards, call a tech and tell them there is a CRT driver board , or an RGB drive problem. This should not cost you an arm and a leg to get repaired. Good Luck, and let us know how you make out with the repair of this TV set.

HELP HELP PLEASE JVC TV


This is probably too late being a year later, but for the reference of anybody else reading this later on down the line, THe convergence IC's need to be replaced. STK392-110. There are two chips and they both should be replaced in tandem. After that a simple customer convergence is all it takes to get it back to normal.
