Re: 60inch rear proscan picture hour glass problem

Most likly this set has two or maybe trhee problems .. first one sounds like a main power filter is open or the main power supply is at fault. the second coulkd be related or the cause of the first problem and could be shorted convergence ICs. the third could be a bad flyback transformer and good luck if thats the problem.. if the sets 10 years + in age, i would think very seriously into investing much to get this one going again.

When the tv is first turned on the picture is great. After about 5-10 minutes the picture looks like a 3 D movie when you're not wearing the proper glasses. Sometimes turning it off for 10 minutes and...

the 3d effect is caused by a mis alignment of the tree tubes you probably have a broken FRAME holding the tubes in place so that HEAT or VIBRATION can move them and the alingment is off dont forget you have one tube for RED one for GREEN and the other for BLUE if they are not aligned properly they can look like a 3d pcture without 3d glasses ha! sorry for the bad grammer...

Good luck!

I have a sony projection tv. Colors/piture not right

Replace convergence ICs and a 5 amp pico fuse on power supply. ICs are part number STK392-560.

Just be sure to use thermal paste on the ICs or they will self destruct in a short amount of time.

Hi Sandy, the problem with your TV is called "convergence". It can be a problem with the convergence board or more likely in this model in the power supply or deflection circuits. Unfortunately, troubleshooting by a technician is required.
