Hi guys, I'm new here and I seem to have a problem with the screen "pinching". Basically, the screen will, for a split second, pinch in the middle and the colors will separate during this pinch and I will get the three RBG images. it will do this for a minute or two and then stop. usually it will do it every other second. It did this for a while about a year ago then stopped and now we are experiencing it again. I have an auto convergence and manual convergence option listed in the menu and also whenever I do an auto convergence it stops at the green square in the top right corner and says that it can't finish because a sensor isn't repsonding. Does anyone know what this could be? Thank you very much!

Re: screen is pinching
You may still have a fl231 fuse type problem. I would first suggest resoldering the flyback connections. dince this happen ever so often it possible a connection problem. If i had it in the shop i woould chek the flat ribbon connectors also. convergence is controled by three board, convergence power, convergence amp and small signal board. since it pinches this is indication of interuption of convergence power supply. the auto convergence not working. is a symptom of small signal board issues. the small signal board requires specal interface equipment to download data off to place on new board. or the sensors arond the screen has failed.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Yes I get the same problem with my Sony XBR and its Pace PVR. The problem seems related to using HDMI interconnects; viewing the PVR through component leads allows the TV to switch modes easily, otherwise I have to turn the tv off and then back on again.
hold the volume button down on the t.v. & the split button on the remote at the same time for about 8 to 10 seconds.The t.v. tech. did this with my panasonic 61lcx65. Also I had 2 fairly large red / orange & 1 blue spots on the screen which I thought were a result of the bulb being bad , but the tech. attached a device he called an eeprom jig & it reset the chip ? Now the picture is like new again.
I just now replaced my lamp and tried the solution on the above bookmarked site (hold down VOL- on the TV itself while holding down the SPLIT button on the TV remote simultaneously for several seconds... I didn't need all 20 seconds that this site recommends), and that worked for me. About 5-10 seconds in, I saw a blue box on my screen that basically said "Lamp timer has been reset to 0" with an "Exit" box below that. It took me a while to find the "Exit" button on my remote control to clear that box off the screen, but that's how I cleared it.
My TV is just short of 3 years old; I bought my Panasonic PT-52LCX65 on "Black Friday" (day after Thanksgiving) in 2005. My lamp died last Saturday night.
Ah split screen just another way of getting two picture in one screen, or sport for he and Opra for her.
Fisrt you must understand what split screen is, it is taking two information from different source and sending the info to the micro to devide the info for two seperat image.
Well something like that but I know you were inpress,
Yes you can. Take the main source you or using I would say the TV box in cable connection or av1 and then your DVD or and VCR to source av2 or 3. When presing split screen or pip you will get one screen showing the main source your tv box and the second your dvd (or VCR) in the source input solector you should be able to change the second amage input with input solector and the tv box change the other.
Oh what a butiful life aint it.
Try this with 7 different source, Cable, satelite, fta, dvd, camera, gaming sytem, and computor,... well that another chapter.
We had the same problem. Luckily, we had a service contract, so it was serviced yesterday. The fix involved the service guy going through a "service menu" and resetting the TV that way. He was not "allowed" to tell me how I can access the service menu, however. I do plan to research this on the internet in case it happens in the future. It is basically a software/computer problem, and unplugging the TV isn't enough to clear it unless the TV is unplugged for "a long time." The technician said the length of time depends on the condition of your capacitors. Anyway, as a temporary fix, he showed me that you can go into the PIP mode. The device toggle for PIP apparently did still work with mine, so I was able to switch the device on the secondary picture and then switch it to primary, then toggle the PIP off. Good luck!
max, go into "video menu" and find "convergence set-up", follow the on screen directions. Basically you want to move the "red" onto the green and then the "blue" onto the other two and the cross will turn white, once it turns white it is re-converged and your done, note: If any of the red or blue adjustments do not function then the set needs convergence circuit repaired, questions? e-mail me back, otherwise Happy New Year, BMW Rider
Two possibilitys here:
Either the screen drivers are going bad or there is a problem with the decoder board.
Testing the decoder board is only replacing it.
You can take a towel and gently apply pressure around the edges of the screen and if it dissappears for even a split second, theres something wrong with the screen itself.
Let us know :-)
This doesn't sound like a programming issue. I had a very similar problem about 6 months ago and I fixed problem. I had cold solder joint on the video power board. It was the board in the middle. The power supply was to the right. The video board had a driver with a bunch of legs. About 7 solder joint where cold or loose. I solder the board and my mitsu wide screen was fixed. Hope this helps.
