Question about JVC AV-56WP74 56" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Just a resistor?

I have a bad resistor on my JVC unit. If this is bad do I also need to change out the STK392-110(s)? The resistor which is bad is R842.

R842 is off of pin 18 of IC804 which controls the red convrgence yoke. I would recomend changing both STK392-110 Ics as well as checking the other resistors R842 is a 2.2 ohm 1 watt metal film resistor. let me know if you need more assistance.

I have a JVC floor model TV that was manufactured in 2004 when you turn it on it stay on a few seconds and goes off. What causes that.

Self preservation. Unit shuts down to prevent further damage to unit.

Check power supply board for bad fuse, burnt resistors, bad capacitors, diodes.

I got an AV-48WP74 projection tv and the convergence IC's werre upgraded from STK392-110 to STK392-150 and several of the resistors on the convergence board were bad. I need to know what to upgrade the...

The value of the resistors should not be changed (either resistance or wattage) as their job is to self destruct if one of the chips shorts.

It is very unusual in this set to see more than two of the resistors bad.

FYI: the 150 chip is a higher current device but will have no longer life than the original as the problem is that the heat sink grease drys out and this causes the failure.

The original resistors are metal oxide type and flameproof or carbon resistors should not be used to replace them.

Let me know if you have questions.

JVC AV56wp74 convergence. Resistor before ICs?

It's recommended to replace all the defective parts first because if you only replace the defective resistor, it might burnt again if the convergence IC is shorted internally. I would also suggest to measure the other low value resistors with multimeter.

I have a JVC AV-56WP74 Rear Projection HDTV Ready Television...I had a problem with the convergence with dual pictures on screen...I replaced the convergence card with 110's.....This fixed the screen...

The STK392-110 are the stock ICs for your JVC. Chances are one or more of the feed resistors are bad. JVC TVs will usually have at least one bad resistor when the original ICs fail

Convergence Issue 4 JVC AV-54WP74

I was trying to be as clear as possible, sorry. There are several resistors, both in the youke return circuit and feed circuit for the amps that should be checked with a digital or analog meter to see if they have changed in value or have opened as a result of the amp failure. If you've never tested a resistor before then I would strongly suggest having this repair done by a shop. There are several types of resistors, the ones you'll encounter here are a flameproof resistor 1 or 2 watt design respectively.
If you're attempting this you'll need a good analog or preferrably a digital meter with an ohms readout setting. Meter across the resistor and the value of the resistor should not be more than 10% of the rated value. If you read infinity you can assume the resistor is open and clearly should be replaced.
If any of this isn't clear enough then I STRONGLY suggest having a qualified technician do the repair... These are common repairs and if you lack any of the necessary testing or soldering skills you could make matter even worse...

Red Wavy lines running across the screen...

Yes - - that indicates one of your convergence amps have failed. That unit takes two STK392-110 Sanyo amps which I personally would replace with STK392-150's for greater reliability. Also check all of the return resistors in that circuit 1.5 ohm 2w and feed resistors 3.3 ohm 1w all are flameproof. You'll likely find that one or more of the return resistors are bad, with suspecting the red is the failed amp check in particular R846 for change in value or open.

Blue light flashes

it is most likely the convergence panel. do your speakers make a thumping sound? if not, disregard this solution. change the stk392-110 convergence amps located behind the front cover on the convergence board. also check the resistors, it seems like they always take out two or more resistors. make sure all of your solder connections are good and none of them are touching. also, when you get the set back on you will need to manually adjust the convergence from the menu. you will need the factory remote. if you find bad resistors, the values are on them, but if you need the values and wattage, then use this page:

hope this helps you.

Changed the ICs but bad resistor

I don't have a schematic here so I'm shooting entirely from memory... the 850 series position tells me you're in the convergence circuit and I would guess you're replacing some of the yoke return resistors.. Are there any color bandings on that resistor? How about compare it to R846 which I know is a yoke return resistor (it's a 1.5 ohm / 2w) and does it look about the same?
Now I'm going to be really pushy - - - the heading here says you changed the ICs and I would assume you're referring to the convergence Ics? Both are a STK392-110 factory, what did you change them to and where did you get them?? Reason I ask is that there are a lot of chineese knock-offs out there and they won't last sometimes past pressing the power button. And usually with these units I upgrade to a higher amp Ic for greater reliability like a STK392-150 or 180... In addition take a dmm or annalog ohm meter and test all the low ohm resistors in that youke return. A resistor doesn't have to look burned to have changed in value...
Where do you get them... Try Acme Enterprises in Florida.. They have quality Sanyo original Ics and prices are cheaper than anywhere else you'll find in the US...
Have a great day and good luck on your repair!

Bad Resistor

Guess I should have looked to see that you had a second post. I justa answered one and here's some of the answers to my questions..
Brown - green - grey - gold would be a 1500m resistor and I would HIGHLY doubt they used something that intolerent in the convergence circuit... It's more likely to be a 1.5 ohm resistor which is brown - green - gold - gold and the grey you're looking at my just be discolored from heat stress...
Take a look at my previous post and tell me what you find after you make some comparisons.
