JVC AV-56WP74 56 in. Rear projection blurred image
I have two arced lines on the top of my screen they look green and pink and cause the picture to be blurred. Almost like a 3d image in that area. Bottom of the screen is fine up through the middle and it startsgetting worse the farther up. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know nothing about fixing these but willing to try anything. Some f the postings are talking about adjusting settings. This just appeared after 6months of working fine. Anybody know if these adjustments might help? THanks, Rick firstname.lastname@example.org

Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.
Common problems with the chassis used in this model for complaints such as this are caused by damage in the convergence circuitry (since there are three separate picture tubes, each mounted in a physical location different from the others, the light each tube "throws" on the screen falls in a different physical location on the screen; the electronics of the convergence circutry force the red & blue light information to "converge" on the image produced by the green tube, which being physically located in the center of the other two is the "master" image), usually associated with the IC's used as amplifiers for the convergence circuits (this model uses STK392-110's) and with the high-wattage, low ohmage resistors used as biasing components for these amps
I was searching online about what could be the problem with our TV and I came across your page. We have a 52" JVC Projection TV that now has a "blurred" screen. We can see the channels but it looks like it's has a shadow around the images. The screen in in a red hue with green blur.
If you have any suggestions on what caused this and what we can do to have this fixed, I would greatly appreciate your advice.
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
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.
The convergence ICs need to be replaced. I can post a link where to get replacement ICs along with free step by step instructions so you can do the repair yourself. Its an easy ,common repair , however a shop will be around 300 to 400
