Question about Mitsubishi WS-55819 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Bowed picture with color divergence

TV turns on and operates fine for about 10 minutes, then the picture jumps to a "bow" (taller on the right and left edges than in the center section) and the red and blue colors diverge out. When I try to manually correct the divergence, the "lines" that need to be centered seem to already be centered since they are located in teh center of the screen (i.e. not at the "bowed" edges). It sounds like others have somewhat similar problems and it is a soldered connection on the divergence IC (whatever that is). I am a pretty handy guy capable of repairing most things --- is this something I can repair? I would prefer to swap out the circuit or damaged part than attempt to resolder if the pieces are very small. Any suggestions???? thanks. Posted Aug. 1, 2007 -- Chicago Area

Hi, The Mitsubishi TV set you have uses two of the STK 392-570 convergence correction IC's. These IC's can be purchased from here http://www.mcminone.com/search.asp?keyword=stk392-570&btnSubmit.x=6&btnSubmit.y=7 These are the original Sanyo replacement type IC's. No aftermarket cheapo ones. Unfortunately this board that the IC's come on is part of the main Printed circuit boards. If one was available for a replacement, it would cost in the range of about 400 bucks. The way it sound that your TV set is intermittent, is that the IC's are not bad, but need to be simply re soldered. This happens a lot with this model number or set of convergence IC's. To tell you the truth, I have had to replace these types of convergence IC's very rarely. Mostly when the set come on with bad convergence and does not change. Find a friend or a neighbor who can solder, find the black STK392-570 IC's standing up against a large metal plate, turn over the printed circuit board and resolder all of the pins, just double check all of the solder points for solder bridges. Good Luck

This is a convergence problem. Look for poor connections at the convergence ICs. Try resoldering the pins on the ICs. If that does not resolve the problem, replace the ICs.

Most likely you had a power surge issue that caused the tubes in your crt projection to malfunction. I would recommend having a service call done to find out the issue

Hitachi 51SWX20B Convergence problem


Solution:

Your TV has a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms.

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in or warped.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the 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.

Its a fairly easy fix on the Hitachi sets.

You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from www.TvRepairKits.com. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.

Sudden discoloration, ghosting, bowed horizontal lines in top and bottom of picture


The convergence ICs probably have a cracked solder joint on the foil side of the circuit board. Re-flowing the the solder would help. I will always replace the convergence ICs when doing this job. The labor remains the same and you will have to pay a few extra bucks for the parts. To fix this yourself, you will need to be able to identify the two convergence ICs, have a basic knowledge of electronics and be able to use a soldering iron. You will also have to do an alignment through the service menu.

This mis probably a cold solder connection in the horizontal circuitry called the pincussion. Theres a couple of coils and resistors that overheat from time to time and the solder connections get loose. Not really for a handiman has this tv has hi vboltage inside even when turned off. Shouldnt cost an arm ans a leg to fix if the repair shop knows what they Are doing. Good Luck
