Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture not in focus


Devices: All projection TV's (HD or analog), especially Samsung

If its a Samsung HCN653W (or similar model), the first thing to try is the menu option named "Magic Focus", which tunes the set's focus.

Otherwise, it sounds like a job for a convergence. Perform a convergence procedure on your TV, and if the problem recurs within a few days/weeks, then your TV's 'convergence amplifier' board (aka "convergence amp board") is starting to fail.
This board may fail completely, in which case, your convergence procedure will fail to improve the picture.
A "convergence procedure" can be performed entirely by just using the appropriate setup menu option and your remote control.
This board may partially fail, in which case your convergence procedure will properly converge the Red, Blue, Green colors on just part of the screen, whereas a properly functioning convergence amp board will allow complete convergence of the colors across the entire screen.
Your TV's convergence procedure instructions will be found in your TV's Owners Manual.
At least one Projection TV manufacturer recommends that the consumer perform a convergence procedure every 30 days, but most TV owners find that excessive, and might only do one when (a) there's an evident color convergence problem in any part of the picture, or (b) once every 3-6 months.

cost to you: $zero
.

If the convergence amp board is bad, cost for a service call would be $300 (USD) plus $100 for a new board plus 50% markup on parts = about $450 (USD)
Cost to order a new board online: about $100 (USD) + shipping + sales tax.
Alternatively, if you can solder/desolder STK's (Power Amplifier Integrated Circuits), one can repair a convergence amp board for as little as $30 (USD) or so.

Tip

"double vision" caused by bad solder points on convergence chips (check before...


Before you order new convergence chips to try to fix the double vision or 3D look on your tv check the solder points for the chips. If you are able to smack the side of the tv or tap the heat sink for the chips and it corrects the problem than chances are the chips are fine butone or more of the solder points are bad. When I looked at the joints for the chips I noticed hairline cracks around the base of the joint. Re-soldering the joints for the convergence chips solved my problem.

Colors are separated, double vision in lower right corner.


Oh, yea - another misaligned projection TV. All rear projection TV's seem to eventually get this disease.
Fix: perform a "convergence," which will converge all 3 color projectors to the same point.

Tv out of foucs


These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then: Convergence The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’ images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen. Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the signal format. Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue Centering. When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options: Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen (this is normal). Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the screen, if necessary. Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture. Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture. Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to converge the picture.

Convergence wont align on Magnavox 51MP392H/17


You will need the original remote to perform a convergence touch up on Magnavox TV sets. If you are using the original remote - but still can't get it working - go back to the site where you purchased the tv repair kit and ask for their help

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung2_bing.gif, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith2_bing.gif, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D2_bing.gif
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on - TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash2_bing.gif focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

Phillips 55pp9527/79 convergence


Two things may have happened. First you may just need to degauss the CRTS. Let me explain when you move your TV you often cut across flux lines (magnetic lines of force) these have then tendency to magnetize your screen mask (a metal component in the CRT that slows down electrons) and cause what is sometimes misdiagnosed as a convergence problem. All that has to take place is a once over with a degaussing coil and the problem is fixed. The other thing that could have happened is the your convergence correction amplifiers have gone bad. This will require that you replace both modules (STK392-110). If you have a background in electronics you can perform these tasks, however if you don not have a background in electronics, I would suggest that you contact a qualified TV repair shop to service your TV set.

 

I hope this helps,

Thank You,
