Question about Apex Digital GB5108 51" Rear Projection EDTV-Ready Television
I have 2 problems! First problem is the convergence does not seem to save, When I turn the tv on the convergence is far off, I can see the corners of the screen have a bowing effect. When I go to line the convergence up manually I can get the picture to a "fair" picture, but as soon I turn the t.v off then back on it goes back to the way it was. The second problem just happened recently, the picure now has a slight wavey ghost to it, the tv is still watchable but doesn't look that clear. The tv is about 2 1/2 years old. I would really like to be able to fix this myself.

Actually you have 3 problems. The two that you listed and the third which is: Apex does not support their units. Ask anyone who has tried to get any service. Your problem sounds like a bad digital convergence box. I fix this problem several times a week but on name brand sets. Cost is usually less than $100 for the part. Some problems with Apex equipment can be fixed if the part is a common off the shelf part. That is not the case with your problem. Apex equipment is cheap for a reason. All posts that I have read say that they do not last long and you can't get parts. That has also been my experience as a technician. We don't even accept Apex units for repair anymore. Next time spend the extra money to buy a name brand unit and it will more than likely be repairable.
