Hi Chris,
This kind of symptoms indicated of problem in its convergence. If the symptom can't be adjusted or cured through the convergence alignment in the menu, this is an indication that convergence circuitry inside gone bad. Here are some of the convergence problem.

Your unit used set of STK392-110 as convergence IC's which is mounted in the heatsink. Replaced this IC and some of the resistor around which is also gone bad (mostly low resistance resistor) and your unit will back to normal again.
But before you replaced the IC's and resistors, check first the board for bad solder joints(cracked/dried/cold solder) in this section. You must work in the brightest area or used table /portable lamp and magnifying glass because this is hard to spot.
If you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't troubleshoot the unit yourself, I would advice you to look for a qualified tv technician to isolate the problem.
Also, check if your unit is still under warranty/extended warranty period, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free. Opening the back cover will void the warranty.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a pioneer tv model pro-720hd. The picture just went fuzzy and everything has a blue shadow around it. What could be wrong?


Sounds like a problem in the blue HV convergence circuit, bad yoke or IC chip that drives the yoke coils.Could also be a bad blue CRT. Look at IC901, STK392-110 and releated components in the circuit, page 97 of service manual.

My tv is make humming soud and stop i will not see and picture, the screen is dark but the oudio still working, do you know what wrong with it?


I would say that your Projection light is busted, I'd recommend that you take it back if you have a warranty, if not then find the appropriate part by googling a company that can service those parts for you.

Blue Shadows


You need to install a convergence repair kit. The PT47WX42 Convergence repair kit at the following link is the correct one for your model. The kit contains both Convergence ICs and the six feed resistors, Plus the CD with instructions on how to do the repair.

Blue shadows appear to be behind white objects


TV shows large red spot in middle of tv when dark show are on, you can see it more.  Now blue spots on upper right side too.  Spend way to much on this tv to have these kinds of problems only after 3 yrs.
