One More On Convergence Popping Out

As a follow-up to the original- If I have to replace the STK's can I recalibrate the set from the user convergence in the menu or will it require something more precise from the service menu. Pioneer's service menu isn't exactly user friendly and I'd assume I'll need the manual for that. Also on the STK's, I believe this one came from the factory with STK392-110's. Thanks, Bob

Convergence problem

Both convergence chips need to be replaced and or some resistors and set adjusted.

If have the original remote go into menu and select convergence to see if it will adjust---if not chips etc need to be replaced.

Set most likely uses 2 stk-392-120 chips but a few use the -110 chip.

My tv is a magnavox and we bought it about 3 years ago and it is now showing like a double picture the color is hazy and pinkish looking the model is 51MP392H/17

The problem of your unit is the convergence. Try to adjust it using the original remote control in the setting menu, then goto the convergence section adjust the red and blue convergence, you should move red and blue UP, DOWN and LEFT or RIGHT, if you cannot move them far enough the convergence IC is defective, replacing this IC will restore the original setting of your tv. This convergence IC is attach to a large aluminum plate it is the heat sink this IC has a marking of STK-#### followed by numbers, remember be careful when replacing this IC you may accidentally tampered or damage the PCB and cause much damage to your unit. Or you can contact a technician to do it for you and save you from stress good day and best regards. Try to check this link for the convergence http://www.google.com.ph/search?q=convergence+ic&hl=tl&sa=X&tbm=isch&prmd=ivns&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=798&bih=472&ech=1&psi=JZdtTvDCPIe4iAe72sTABA.1315804977740.3&emsg=NCSR&noj=1&ei=MpdtTpa4OKKSiQfBpcjGBA

You need to replace the convergence IC, They start with STK make sdure you get original stk IC's and not cheap china made or aftermarket parts as they will not lasts long in your set. if you pay less then 15 bucks for your IC that really is no bargain cause it is most likely an aftermarket IC

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

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

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


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 of a set that needs the fluid changed.
