calibration or somthing it has 1 picture for each of the primary colors

I would greatly appreciate it if you could let me know what I have to do to get my tv working as it did before. I can solder.

Re: Same problem as achilles_08...different colors on...
This is a convergence problem that can be as simple as poor solder connections at the convergence ICs or defective ICs. Try esoldering the ICs first. If that fails to resolve it, replace them. These will be large black ICs attached to a heat sink and marked STKxxx.

This is a convergence oroblem. First question is do you have the convergence option in under setup in the customer main menu?... if you dont you may have the very common fl231 fuse problem; i have wrote a article on this under the tips and tricks section. this is a very simple inexpesive repair. If you do have the "convergence option" then you may have to replace one of three cuircit boards
I fixed the set myself. All I did was unplug the power cord to the set overnight. It must have demagnetized itself! The color is perfect. I do remember that we had some thunderstorms in the area about the same time as my problem occured.

Your set has what is know as "convergence problem" because of the bowed lines and ghost in different colors,is really not an easy solution,the set should have 3 amplifiers(one for each color)and they need to be replaced with an exact replacement,sometimes just by replacing them the aligment should be close but soemtimes you nned to get into the service menu to do some adjustments,the amps(IC's) are mounted on heat sinks and all 3 have the same part number on its face,they normally read STK--- ---,every set uses different amps,If you are familiar with tv service you have now a place to start working but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help from a servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.
