Samsung STK392-010 ICs Convergence Issue.

Hello All,

My Samsung HC-P4752W started having convergence issues yesterday. I now have a blue ghost image. A few questions:

  1. Is it worth trying a manual convergence adjustment before replacing the STK392-010 ICs?
  2. If they need to be replaced, are they "generic" or do they have to be a specific Samsung branded part?
  3. Is it just 2 STK392-010 ICs that need to be replaced?
  4. I build, work on PCs. Is replacing these chips within my ability with my PC background?
  5. Do any capacitors need to be discharged before replacing the ICs?
  6. Is the replacement of the chips a fairly easy, straight forward process?
This is a great site! Thanks for any help/info in advance all! -Rene

Thats a convergence failure. often you can replace the two Ics and associated resistors to repair the issue yourself instead of replacing the convergence board. But you can get the ICs and resistors from which includes free tech support for help installing the parts. They also have circuit boards for most models available if you choose to replace the board instead of trying to repair it.

Hi-I have a 46'' '04 model hc-4752w set-yellow&blue ghosts-told replace to try less intrusive or $ ?-thanks-peter

Have you used 'perfect focus' with no improvement?
Are all colors present and correct (other than the convergence)?
If so then convergence ICs are the culprit.
Replace them both.
Yours are Sanyo STK394-250. ($14.51 each at
Do you have any experience soldering or working on electronics? If you do it is a fairly straightforward repair. There are many online resources to assist you.
I did one of these a week ago.
If I can be of further help post back here.

I have a Samsung HC-P4752W and see yellow and bllue halos.

Have you tried to use the convergence function on the TV? If that has not fixed this issue then you have bad convergence IC chips. These chips are microprocessors that align the blue and red tubes with the green (which is stationary). This converges the three tubes to create the image that you see. Failure of these chips (usually from heat over time) is a common problem with projection  TVs. The chips are not very expensive; from $35-60 for the pair. Replacing them involves some tedious desoldering of the old ones and soldering in the new ones. If you have some experience with electronics and soldering it is not hard. Shops will charge $300 and up for this repair. If you want to do it your self post a comment bnack here and I can assist you further.

Give it a try.

You dont have to remove the aluminum heat sink. The ICs are attached with screws and then just unsolder the ICs from the circuit board and then replace the new ics into the pin hole locations after applying heat sink compound onto the back then screww the new ICs to the heat sinks then solder the pins. Very easy repair.

Convergence issues

Yes the HC-P4252W and the HC-P4752W are both P59A chassis so they both use the two STK392-010 Convergence amp iCs that are located on the sub deflection board

Samsung HC-P4752W Ghosting, seeing yellow, bowed lower left

What might be happening is that your convergence is out of adjustment. Before removing the Convergence ICs try to adjust your convergence either from the onscreen adjustment (see your owners manual) or by using a signal generator (if you have one). I am against this "lets start swapping parts out" craze that has become the norm because you never fix the cause of your problem just the symptoms. I would suggest trying to adjust the convergence first. Thank you, Shuttle83,
