TV picture shaking!!!

My TV is going on 7 years old. No problems other than a convergence problem 3 years ago that was fixed. Now I have a picture shaking issue going on. The convergence seems fine and needs adjusting every few weeks with the weather. The picture shakes when first turned on then seems to settle for awhile. Thanks for any suggestions or help.

    Sound like we have the very same problem. My TV is five years old and the shaking problem started about a month ago after I had to move it to replace the living room carpeting. Have not found a solution to the problem.

    Opps i think i posted for additional information. Anyways I am having the same problem, with the shakes, but the menu does NOT shake when activated. I have a mitsubishi of the same size and age.

    Thanks in advance!

    My Toshiba is now going on 8 years old. The past few days I've had to adjust the convergence. The shaking is not consistent - it seems to occur at the start up. The shaking is not severe, but it is consistent with the picture regardless of whether cable or video. Picture quality is still good. Shaking goes away after awhile.

    Since the set is getting older - I doubt the repair costs are worth investing more $, especially with the new HDTV's and lower costs, etc.

    Can a lay person check the hyper board? Where is it and are there ways to "look" at it to tell if it's failing? (Dark spots, fused links, etc?)

    Thanks

    I have this problem as well. The menu shakes along with the picture. It is intermittent.

    Highvoltage, I have the same problem, and the menu does NOT shake when i hit the menu button. Does this mean it is something other than the hyper board? My tv is a vs 5006r (mitsubishi).
    Thanks in advance!!

SOURCE: TV picture shaking!!!

You have a Hyper module problem.Very common with these chassis.Toshiba part # 23148024.This part is no longer available,but it can be repaired.I dont know how much electronics training you may have but it`s a pretty detailed job.The hyper board is the silver stand up module inside the unit right behind the external Audio/Video jack panel.There are 11 little capacitors that all need to be replaced.The value of these caps are 10uf @ 16VDC.I do this job for about $245.00 and the unit works fine.Check with your local shop if it is too much for you.If you don`t know what you are doing you can ruin this module then it`s time for a new set.Good luck.

My Mitsubishi TV is about 12-14 yrs old. The

DLP projection tvs are bulky and have a design flaw in the convergence board the 2 STK convergence ICS alway dies constinely require replacement,if u use about 4 or 5 hours day in and day out.If the old Mitsubishi tv several years since is was repair,u use it alot?If yes,it time to retire it,and buy the refurbish Plama tv.Not,than get the old tv repair.U Know how to solders?Tries Websites Tv repair World.com,Tvrepairkits.com to buy a convergence kit to repair it ur self.U can go to You Tube type in Convergence problems will see a tutoring video in repairing 2 STK Convergence ICS.

The left side of the picture has red and green stripes and ghost images. The right side does not have this problem, but the picture is not quite right. The convergence chips were replaced two years ago and...

That sounds like the convergence problem I had about a year ago, and like you, I replaced the convergence chips and that fixed the problem. It's cheaper to replace the chips if you do it yourself, but maybe not if you send it out for repair. If you can find an exact replacement board, that would fix it too, but I wouldn't necessarily expect it to last longer. The advice I read on replacing the convergence chips in my rear projection TV was that they would last 2 or 3 years and then need replacing again. So you're within that range.

Hi I have a toshiba 50h82 tv that is 7 years old with a convergence problem with the red and green lines that is going to cost $400 to fix but now that I am thinking about it before the convergence problem...

You are describing 2 different problems. The convergence problem can be fixed by either resoldering the convergence ICs or replacing them. These ICs cost about $25 each and there are 2. I suspect that the $4oo is for replacing the convergence board. This should not be necessary as the board can be fixed. Also, the brightness problem can be dirty CRTs, dirty mirror or faulty coolant fluid on the CRTs. If the picture was good prior to the convergence problem, the set is probably worth the repair if you can get the board fixed. While the board is being repaired, the service shop should be able to tell whether or not the brightness can be adjusted.

Panasonic 47wx53 covergence issues

Is the power indicator flashing three times? If so the Ics have shorted shutting the set down. You will need two STK392-110 convergence ICs. You can get replacement ICs at the following link with free installation instructions.

RCA HDTV blurry

this indications that you have a problem with convergence. first try to go into customer menu...setup....convergence. and see if the convergence will adjust.. if it wont then you have a problem with the convergence cuircit boards.

Power supply/convergence issue...

Your Projo is a complicated piece of equipment, involving 3 picture tubes (like 3 tv's), convergence failures are extremely common, I dont think $550 is totally unreasonable, but I dont think it is a power supply issue if it is just effecting 1 color, usually it would cost around $100 parts $300 labor to repair, might be a little high, I suppose they are also charging you for pickup and delivery, I hate taking sets into office as that sometimes jars stuff loose or cracks boards.

Wavy picture

this is caused by a bad convergence module, and there are probably some dried out electrolytic caps in the circuit as well. i have one in the shop right now that came in with the same problem. if you have it serviced, make sure they replace all of the convergence modules (there are usually 2, but sometimes 3 of them), because if one went bad the other(s) is likely to go out soon as well.

Vizio E3D420VX-IR Sensor keeps going bad I replaced IR board after sophomoric mistake of replacing multiple remotes feel bad for erroneous product review now. Worked for a few hours, then... Stopped. All parts handled with ground strap upon my arm attached to ground prong on unplugged power cable. Unit was dusted with air duster prior to removal of factor/original board. Shopjimmy replacement fixed issue, so tv put back in place and tested again. Still worked. After turning TV on again next day... Unresponsive to TV remote nor the matched BD-Player remote with volume button for Vizio TVs. Ordered another part, and worked again until powering and repowering TV. Wondering if, on startup, the board is somehow getting a big jolt or shift in ground potential or ESD release frying the chip on-board after only a couple startups. I just bought and received in the mail another IR board along with part rebuild kit for the board containing just an ir sensor and either a tiny resistor or mlcc to replace on board. It's possible that it's simply the age of the TV and manufactured parts this is one of the 1st 3D HDTV's released that didn't require powered 3D glasses. However, prior to risking this 3rd and maybe 4th replacement, where else should I look for problems? I was thinking maybe clean connector pins with alcohol to ensure ground on board not getting ESD or stray voltage? I don't recall which board the wires from ir board go to I'm guessing the main and maybe power board?. Maybe a bad capacitor on the power board? I know this TV is notorious for the IR board going bad.... I guess the main questions here are: 1- what can cause the IR board to go bad in the 1st place, and what component actually does go bad? I would guess it's the components in the rebuild kit, so... Would a heftier resistor to get higher amplitude out of the sensor/transducer if in fact i de-solder the sensor and check for output in response to infrared stimuli and it seems to be working but whole board doesn't? 2- Has anyone ran into this before with an IR board popping over and over? Do they even get a power input? I thought it was just the IR transducer powering them similar to the voltage coming off a thermopile from the pilot light on HVAC equipment and the single chip on the board modified the sensor/transducer output signal to cause a given reaction based on remote input and main board processing... 3. Should I just try the new part as it was just happenstance and my luck really does go like that every day?
