Zenith tv turns itself off after convergence IC were replaced

It will be good to check once again on the work that was done as there is a possibility that the pins are bridged with solder when the rework was done.
So if you are able to use a magnification glass to inspecct it will be good and if so there is also a possibility that the IC was damaged.
Finally int he first place the identification of the fault of the convergence IC must be established with your test other wise a board replacement might confirm.

We moved the TV and it now has color shadows, blue,red and yellwow. It looks llike 3D. In the past I did auto convergance and it fixed itself. This time it will not adjust itself. is this something I can...

You need to Change out the Convergence ICs they are Big Black ICs and will have the part number on them STK392-570s I think is what they use in this model.
Mats Electronics has ICs 1-800-628-1118
You can ship the Convergence board to PTS and let them rebuilt the board 1-800-844-7871
Zenith Exchange Moduels 1-800-632-6637
If you plan on Fixing this ,then you also need to check the Low ohm resisotrs 1ohm and Capaciotrs 1000uf 35v near the STK ICs

If the resistor doesnt read its open and needs replacing. I have no idea on what your origional symptoms were. If it was convergence just the large feed resistors need checking.

If you replaced the convergence ICs did you check the convergence resistors as well, as often the old ICs will take out a few resistors in the Convergence feed circuits or at least increase their values and that can give those symptoms youre describing after new ICs are instaleed.

replace the convergence amps and any blown resistors or pico fuse on the board. this is a common problem of rear projection sets this repair is not for the amateur have it done by a pro. the cost of the repair may be around $ 350.00. if you so choose to do the repair yourself, look for the two large ICs on a large heat sink (stk392-xxx).repalce them use heat sink compound on the new ICs and check the resistors around the ICs with a DVOM and check any pico fuses for open.
