Hi jasonmonika ,

Try turning off your Tv for a couple of minutes with the power cable plugged off. plug it all back in and see.

if that does not work, then i would suggest for you to call the service center for you TV and ask them to help resolve your issue. Usually the suggestions would be to check all internal connections but i see you already have.

this is all i can recommend, i hope this helps.

sounds like the color wheel needs replacing if the image moves on the screen, or if the image is frozen it would be the dmd board.

Your TV may have a convergence failure. ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue 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.


You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

It sounds like a convergence issue. Are you able to try the convergence built into the tv? If that doesn't work you will need to have a professional come out and align the color guns. Also it is always possible there is a more serious problem with internal components. If you need help finding a qualified repair tech. in your area let me know.
Thank you,

That's really odd that a power outage did that. I would try unplugging the TV, hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then leave it unplugged for an hour and come back and try it again, that will for sure reset everything by removing power from it. If that doesn't have any effect then its possible the mainboard got damaged by a surge.

The inverter broad is part of the power broad.

Its probably a bad T-Con board as long as the screen itself isn't physically damaged, no cracks, etc. But if the T-Con board won't fix it then its not worth fixing, its going to be hard to get a replacement LCD panel, if not expensive compared to a new TV. If the T-Con board is cheap enough it might be worth a shot to try that, and if it doesn't fix it then its time for a new TV. Sad but true on these!

Power supply fault. Repair the power supply.

Bad cable! How does TV attach to the satellite receiver? Coax, RGB, etc:? Try another cable first and foremost. If the cable is DB15 one bent pin in connector will cause exactly what you have described. Always check cables first!
