It is best to replace the convergence PWB, rather than trying to repair it. After its replacement, convergence adjustments should be done again. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

try holding in the menu and input/device buttons on the front of the set both together and see if it blinks a series of blinks, pause briefly then blinks a second series of blinks, let me know what the blinks were sush as 22 or 24

sounds like scart lead

there are 2 functionality screens and 1 screen protector (on some)
front screen = lenticular
back screen = fresnel
very front screen = screen protector (you can replace w plexiglass)

the fresnel and lenticular are very specific.. contact your local repair center for a new one. you can cut them from old screens but have to do just right (fresnel is a lens type - pic will be distorted if off center)

maybe find a old junker tv to pull screens from because new ones are about $100 a piece

Do this and let me know what you find:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD “device” and “menu” buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.

Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem

******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protect the Convergence IC or IC’s is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergence IC and shut down.



I hope you find 2, then 2 error--it is the most easy to fix.

While the tv is on, press and hold the MENU button for 6 seconds and that will unlock the front panel

The error code 23 signals the loss of the horizontal deflection. The most likely part that has failed is the power deflection transistor and (almost always) the flyback transformer.
The parts will cost $80 and the labor about $150 - you will need to call a pro for that, the extremely high tension in there is very dangerous.

I will start describing the problem from scrap. I know you have already done some troubleshooting (eg. disconnecting power), and I know that you are aware that the clicking is not the problem, but I want to go through the full description in the hope of clearing confusion.

The TV is in protect mode. This is a special diagnostic mode that turns on when an incorrect voltage or a short is detected by the TV main circuit board. In protect mode the TV is forced to stand-by, and voltages from CPU are kept off, apart from the low +5V DC that is used to keep the TV in standby. The clicking sound in a protection switch that keeps off the PSU.

About diagnostics:

The three flashes after connecting power indicate that PSU is good and responding, and that the problem is elsewhere.

To find the real error code hold Input and Menu buttons in front panel at the same time for 5 secs. The TV will return two series of flashes (tens, then pause, then units), which are the error code. Here the procedure:


Here all the error codes for this set:
If you get 12, the PSU and ballast may still need checking.
21: Test XR protect circuit, if good, replace CRT.
22: Check deflection yoke, ballast, PSU and other parts.
23: check alignment circuit and convergence ICs
24: check alignment circuit and convergence ICs

The repair must be done by a person with TV repairing experience. This kind of TV is tested working with iron and multimeter, there is no board swapping with this models.

I sorry to say but your TV is on its way out. The issue is that it will be the same price to buy a new 42 inch LCD that it will to repair the problem.

The picture problem is a result of either or both the convergence or pincushion boards going bad. Your model will run around $450 to repair. However if you are good with soldering, there are kits sold online for you to repair the convergence board yourself. These kits work as well as what any tech will do but just as the tech will say, the repair is as is and the problem could return in a short amount of time. The pincushion board is not repairable. Below is a link to a site that sells the repair kits.


If I was able to help please rate this answer, thanks.

Sounds like the convergence circuit is failing. You can try pressing the "magic focus or perfect focus" button to see if it clears up. If not the circuit is bad and needs repair. They have repair kits on this website. tvrepairkits.com if you want to try repairing it. otherwise it can cost $300-$400 to have somone else repair it.

When you turn on and green light comes on and then goes off:

On the front of the set press and hold both the Menu and Input buttons at the same time for longer than 5 seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know and if this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Make sure the button either on the remote is not depressed all the time or on the front of the television!! This will be the main reason that the volume is going to MAX all the time. Usually if you press any button on the tv or remote and hold it down such as you mentioned, it will lockup the microprocessor to that function specificly and it won't take anyother instructions until you unstick the button or get it to stop going all the way UP!
Try that and let me know if i solved your problem.. God luck from the TV GURU
