The convergence repair kit for your model is available at www.tvrepairwporld.com which should solve that problem. The kit does include the parts and the CD with instructions for the repair.

SOURCE: Out of focus

Rach, if it doesn`t move from green to red to blue in Magic Focus then there is a problem with the convergence IC`s and probably one or more support resisters. These components will have to be replaced, questions? ask away, BMW Rider

SOURCE: Magic Focus does not work.

Convergence issues usually resolved by changing convergence output amplifier IC's.....Original STK392-110 should be replaced
with upgrade Stk394-160E Hitachi part # CZ 01341,change both
for reliability.....check B+ feed resistors for over-heating....T.

SOURCE: will not show red color in picture, magic focus shows red though

You have a projection light element out. I had the green element go on mine. I had a service agreement so a repair tech changed it.

SOURCE: Colors are not aligned Magic focus ?

The magic focus will stop if there is a bad sensor and or a problem in the convergence circuit.

This set uses two STK-392-110 convergence chips--both along with any of the resistors that protect them need to be replaced and the set adjusted--I have repaired hundreds of these sets----


Confirm model number----and if you go into the customer menu and either red or blue will not move in any or some direction--the chips have to be replaced---LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU FIND AND I CAN GIVE YOU FAIRLY DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS ON WHERE TO GET THE PARTS AND WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THIS REPAIR.

Hello,

Replacing the lamp will do the job. It is the lamp that is faulty not the gun or the mirror.

It will cost just a few box to get a new lamp.

Take care and good luck

Blue lamp is not in focus


Try adjusting the convergence. If it won't move see below- (or hitting Magic Focus for some Hitachi’s)

This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually charge between $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Plenty of Sound, No Picture


You may have to replace the convergence IC's or the lamps. Impossible to say without having a manual inspection. Best bet is to take it in for a service repair..
