P5P Convergence Adjustment Procedure

Warning:

This training material is designed for experienced repair technicians only and is not designed for use by the public. It does not contain warnings or cautions to advise non-technical individuals of potential dangers in attempting to service a product. Products powered by electricity should be serviced or repaired only by experienced professional technicians. Any attempt to service or repair the product or products dealt with in this training material by anyone else could result in serious injury or death.

Preparations:

The procedures discussed here apply to Projection Televisions equipped with the P5 and P6 chassis. Models using screens with the aspect ratio of 4:3 require convergence in three modes, NTSC (480i), 1080i 16:9, and 1080i 4:3. Wide screen models with an aspect ratio of 16:9 require convergence in only 2 modes, NTSC (480i) and 1080i. This detailed procedure covers the complete convergence process, which is required if the A board is replaced. A particular unit under repair may not require the entire procedure. To ensure customer satisfaction, please verify proper operation in all broadcast modes.

The following tools are required to complete the procedure:

n) Select an active channel or video source.

Format Setting:

The same "A" board is used In the P5P and P5PW Chassis, regardless of the physical screen aspect ratio. A Version setting (VER) is included in the Serviceman menu to compensate for the format differences. Therefore, it is highly recommended that a confirmation of that setting be performed before starting the adjustment procedures. Currently the affected models are:

P5PW Chassis family: PT-47WX49E, PT-47WX51E, PT-56WX51E, and PT-65WX51E P5P Chassis family: PT-51HX41E, PT-56HX41E, PT-61HX41E, and SR5144E.

Confirmation of VER Setting:

1. Press the Power button to access the Serviceman mode menu.

2. Use Channel Up/Down and Volume Up/Down buttons to highlight "VER" in the Serviceman menu.

3. Press the Action button on the remote. A display of the two aspect ratios 4:3 and 16:9 appears, with one highlighted.

4. Use the Volume Up/Down button to highlight the setting that matches the physical aspect ratio of the screen.

5. Unplug the monitor from the outlet.

6. Plug the monitor back into the outlet. The monitor will turn back on, without exiting the Serviceman mode. The correct format setting is now selected.

7. Press the Power button on the remote, repeatedly, until CHK is displayed.

NOTICE:

For your convenience, the convergence circuits on replacement boards have been pre- programmed with average EEPROM data for the convergence alignment. The EEPROM is NOT blank; therefore, the average data should reduce the time needed to converge this unit. More extensive convergence touchup may be needed on 51”, 56” and 61” models.

Preliminary Adjustments:

Press the Action button to bring up the Roller Guide menu. Use the Channel Up or Channel Down button to highlight the Setup menu. Press the Action button to access the setup functions. Use the Channel Up/Down and Volume Up/Down buttons to access the Convergence 1 adjustment. Using the Channel Up/Down and Volume Up/Down Buttons, adjust both Green values to zero. Press the Action button and do the same for Red, then Blue. This provides maximum range of raster movement to the customer while adjusting the Static Convergence. Press the Action button, repeatedly, to exit the Setup Menu.

Coarse Convergence Mode includes seven adjustments, Static, Skew, Size, Linear, Pin, Corner, and Key. Press the TV/Video button to cycle through the adjustments. These adjustments are somewhat interactive. This means that the "Linear" adjustment for example, can affect the Size adjustment.

STATIC: Use this adjustment to align the raster pattern to the embossed marks on the cabinet.

Skew: Use this adjustment to make the shape of the pattern as rectangular as possible with the pattern's vertical lines parallel to the vertical screen edges.

SIZE: This adjustment is used to match the outside edges of the pattern to the edges of the screen. Straight and perpendicular lines are desired; perfect alignment however may require cycling through these adjustments due to interactions.

LINEAR: Use this adjustment to obtain an equivalent picture size on both sides of the screen. This adjustment directly interacts with the size adjustment. You would need to alternately touch-up both adjustments until they are both correct.

PIN: Use this adjustment to eliminate or minimize curvature distortions, vertical and horizontal.

CORNER: Use this adjustment to obtain perpendicular lines in each of the screen corners.

KEY: Adjust for a rectangular picture by minimizing trapezoidal distortions.

Press and Hold the TV/Video button until the Crosshatch pattern appears on the screen.
While in any of the Fine Adjustment modes, press the Mute button to toggle between "Cursor"
and "Data" modes.
There are four adjustments in the Fine
Convergence Adjustment mode, LINE, EASY,
POINT, and ORIGINAL POINT. LINE mode is used
to correct a single raster line horizontally or
vertically.
Line Adjustment
EASY mode allows the technician to adjust a group
of horizontal and vertical lines adjacent to the
cursor. In this mode, there are only 9 adjustment
positions on the screen and data values are
changed in increments of 4.
Easy Adjustment
POINT mode is similar to EASY mode except
that there are 77 adjustment points, 49 of
which are visible on the screen and 28 are off-
screen (on the perimeter). In this mode, data
values are changed in increments of 2.

Point Adjustment

ORIGINAL POINT mode uses the same adjustment points as in POINT mode except that the
ORIGINAL POINT mode uses the same adjustment
points as in POINT mode except that the data values
are changed in increments of 1.

Use this mode to correct larger areas of the screen that are out of convergence. You should only have to adjust eight of the nine adjustment points since the center point was previously corrected

in LINE Mode. Use EASY mode to straighten curved lines.

12. Press the TV/Video button until "G-EASY" is displayed. Press the “Mute” button to change to CURSOR mode.

13. Use the Channel Up/Down and Volume Up/Down buttons to move the cursor to the adjustment position.

14. Press the Mute button to change to DATA mode.

15. Adjust the group of lines near the cursor so that they are as straight as possible. Work your way around the screen adjusting the green raster lines to match the template lines.

16. When all eight points are adjusted, save the data changes.

After the EASY mode adjustment is complete, do not return to it to correct a misconverged spot.

A readjustment of any point in the EASY mode will result in misadjusting the convergence of that

area of the screen, which you may have already converged, using subsequent adjustments.

G-Point Mode

POINT mode is used to adjust positions that are not accessible in EASY Mode. Adjustments
POINT mode is used to adjust positions that are not accessible in EASY
Mode. Adjustments are made in data increments of 2.
The changes wil l affect
the outside point.
17. Press the TV/Video button, repeatedly, until "G-POINT" is
displayed.
18. Press the “Mute” button to change to CURSOR mode.
19. Adjust the center area of the screen then work way
outwards.
There are 28 points that are located outside the screen border
(off-screen). Their presence outside the screen is intended to
help in converging the lines at the edges of the screen
more closely.
However,
They may not
be as easy to
adjust. When
If the cursor is located outside the edge
of the screen, it will blink between the 2
points.

the cursor is moved to the edge of the screen, it starts blinking at two points, alternately. These two points are inline with the off-screen point to be converged.

20. Adjust the Green lines at the edge of screen to match them as closely as possible to the template lines.

21. When you feel co mfortable with the outcome of the adjustments, save the data changes.

G- Orig inal Point Mode

22.

Press the TV/Video button, repeatedly, until G-ORIG POINT is displayed. G ORIG POIN is similar to G POINT exc ept for the adjustment values, which are changed in data increments of 1. Adjustment values can be viewed by pressing the “RECALL” button on the remote control. When all the green lines are adjusted to match the template lines, save the data changes.

T

N ow, since the Green lines match the template lines, adjust the Red lines to match the Green li nes. Therefore, the template is not necessary for this part of the convergence alignment.

Red Convergence

S elect the Red raster adjustment by pressing 1 or 3, repeatedly, until the Red and Green raster lines are displayed. The Red and Green lines should converge and create yellow lines. Remember that the Green raster should not be readjusted.

Starting with LINE, then EASY, POINT, a nd then ORIGINAL POINT, align the Red raster lines w ith the Green raster lines, following the same procedures you followed when you aligned the G reen raster lines with the template lines. Remember to save the data periodically by pressing th e 7 then Action on the remote control.

Blue Convergence

Select the Blue raster adjustment by pressing 1 or 3, repeatedly, until the Blue and Green raster lines are displayed. The Blue and Green lines should converge and create cyan lines.

Starting with LINE, then EASY, POINT, and then ORIGINAL POINT, align the Blue raster lines with the Green raster lines, following the same procedures you followed when you align ed the Red raster lines with the Green raster lines. You may have to dim the room lights to clearly se e th e blue raster. You may also find it easier to view all three rasters together, in this case adjust th e Blue raster lines to merge with the Red and Green raster lines creating white lines. R emember to save the data periodically by pressing the 7 then Action on the remote control.

1080i Mode

After you have completed the convergence adjustments in the NTSC (480i) mode, you need to apply a DTV 1080i signal to one of the component inputs of the monitor and perform the convergence adjustments for the 1080i mode. The data values for this mode are stored in the EEPROM storage location P4.

1. Press the Power button, repeatedly, on the remote control until CHK is displayed in the upper left hand corner of the screen.

2. Press the TV/Video button until the 1080i signal is visible on the screen.

3. Press the Power button and verify that 1080i and 4:3 in the Serviceman menu are both highlighted in red. If 1080i is not highlighted, then the 1080i input is not selected. One method of verifying that the 1080i source has been selected is to press 7 while in the convergence adjustment mode. The message "Store P-4" should appear.

Convergence procedures for the 1080i mode are the same as those of the NTSC mode. The differences are in the storage location, which is P-4 and in the template grid lines.

Copying and Restoring Data

After completing the convergence adjustments and saving the data values, it is a good idea to backup the convergence data. This is done by pressing 8 on the remote control in the Fine Convergence adjustment mode. A menu appears, prompting: COPY FROM? Scroll to it using the CH Up/Down and Volume Up/Down buttons then press the Action. Another menu pops up, prompting: COPY TO? Scroll to it using the CH Up/Down and Volume Up/Down buttons then press Action. The copy process will then be complete. Copy the data from location P3 to location

P2 and copy from location P4 to P5. This copy process allows you to backup the data for 480i and 1080i modes. In some situations you may be able to save time by restoring the 480i or 1080i convergence data from one of the backup locations.
