Problem with my big screen

I have a picture that seems to be concave. When it warms up it may then go back to flat. Is there something I can do to fix this?

Re: Problem with my big screen

I have had the same problem with my projection tv for a long time. I finally called a tv repair man and he told me that the converter is out of alignment and that I needed a new converter. It is costing me $360.00 to repair it. Let's hope it works.

Concaved shadow

this is because of the magnetic interference, you better isolate the TV from the devices producing heavy magnetic interferences like Speakers Microwave, Cellphones and Cordless phones. Then go the main menu in that you will find setup option , in the setup option go to the picture setup you will find option called degauss just click on that, the screen will flash for a second and everything will be alright. Frequent degaussing is not advisable as it reduce the life of the projection tube.

Picture quality

Contact your local service rep as this sounds like a "not so easy fix' related to the main board or power supply (known issues with Mits boards, especially the capacitors). Cleaning, resetting, re-configuring will not likely make any difference. Verify the problem occurs across all input modes (such as DVD, etc). before taking any service actions.

Colors not align and screen looks concave

Your convergence chips have gone bad. If you are familiar with working on televisions, take the back off the set, discharge the flyback and disconnect the wires to the board and pull it out. On the board, you'll see 2 large metal heat sinks. Attached to them are the convergence chips (probably 2 of them). Unsolder them and replace with new ones. Mine cost $6 a piece + shipping. Be careful not to bend the legs while installing them. Also, you need to put something on the back of the chips to help dissipate heat. High temperature gasket sealer always worked for me. Do not attempt this fix if you are not comfortable working with high voltage. TVs, big or small, can kill you if you're not careful. Check youtube for a video on helped me. Just keep your search real general, i.e. "Convergence Chips". Good Luck!
