The problem is only at the top left corner of the screen and it jumps on and makes a sideways smile. The screen above it is pink.

1024x768 Normal 0 Convergence


When A REAR PROJECTION TV has coloured outlines or a 3D image the Convergence Circuits most likely need attention.

Replacing the output amplifiers (located within the Convergence IC's) allows the pictures to line up correctly, and no more color outlines.

This is the most common fault in all makes of rear projection TVs.

Some models of TV require major disassembly and considerable shop/manufacturer's support to repair because of their design that causes other power supply or vertical deflection problems. The poorly designed products require a "bench" repair that can typically cost from $350 t0 $700.

Some TVs are designed for on-site repair and have more reliable circuit design that does not usually cause damage to other parts of the TV when convergence chips fail. The ones that usually allow reliable on-site repair are JVC, Samsung and Hitachi.

It is normal to have some resistors in the circuit burn up or increase in value from the heat (from 2.2 ohms to 5 or 10 ohms). These resistors must be replaced with the right value or the chip may fail again.

This is not a simple repair like changing batteries or a fuse. Reading through the other posts shows many that try and end up with bigger problems.

Your JVC uses STK 392-110 IC's. Misinformed people replace the IC's with other "new and improved" IC's, like STK 392-150. These are devices with different characteristics and require different value resistors in the circuit. Replacing with the STK 392-150 will cause overheating of the resistors and a damaged IC.

If you are in Calgary, I can help. If not, get someone that has experience working on your JVC. My website is below with some costs and explanation.

You need to take your tv in and have the picture deflector re-aligned.  This doesn't cost much, My dad had to do that to his a few months ago and it cost 30 bucks.

Coulor distortion at the top left of the screen


Hello jordan ashe,

This is an indication that the green CRT is having a convergence problem. This might be caused by the convergence amplifier or by the CRT. Does the rest of the picture look OK? and in addition can you supply a picture of your TV so as I can see what you are seeing and develop a proper diagnosis?


Thank you,

I am told my Hitachi 61SDX01B (UltraVision/Ultrascan) has "Green Geometry"


Sounds like a convergence promblem.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of a convergence problem.

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in or warped.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the 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.

Its a fairly easy fix on the Hitachi sets.

You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from www.TvRepairKits.com. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.

TV PROBLEM


This could be the start of convergence problems. Anytime you are dealing with color lines then is the convergence. No first you could check for loose connection and then change in value return resistor in the convergence area. Hope this helps!
