    I have an older Pioneer SD-P5075 that has been a wonderful set. This morning when my son turned the system on it looked as though a red spirograph was going nuts on the screen. Turns out the Red gun is out of convergence and is uncorrectable.

    Is this simply a convergence circuitry problem I can have repaired or is the red gun going out?

    Thanks for help in advance!

    Hi Alan, I sent you an email with my phone #. Call me and perhaps you can better describe the problem.

    Regards

    Gregg,

    I've got a question about my Pioneer 582-HD5. I've had a recurring problem with my convergence. It seems the red has trouble staying still (it appears to "jitter"); this has happened on and off since I've had the TV, and because of a bad experience with my local service rep, I didn'e get it fixed. Now there is a better qualified rep in town, but I'd like to really get a good idea of what the problem could be before I contact them. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Darcy, Ive seen several sets where the convergence grid moves around (jitters) but no problems with the actual picture. I have read that others have reported the same problem and it has "just disappeared".

    If you picture is fine and or is your convergence grid fine in the user convergence? If so a tech most likely wont do anything.

    If the above isnt so, then most likely your convergence board will have to be replaced.

    regards
    Gregg
