The picture has gone crazy on you because your convergence IC's have gone bad.
These IC's operate at a very high temp, and usually only last 4-5 years. 
If you remove the back of the set, you will want to look for the BIGGEST heatsink in there, on that heatsink, you will see 2 lage IC's , probably STK392-110, or STK392-120's or something close...regardless - you can go on ebay to order the new ones, but MAKE SURE they are Genuine SANYO IC's and not counterfiet cheapies. the cheap ones may only last 2 months..
You will also need some "Heat transfer paste" - you can pick this up at radio shack.
Once you remove the old IC's, test all the large resistors near them.. pull one side of the resistor out of the board so you can check it out of circuit. they will usually have the value in Ohms, printed directly on the resistor, but you may have to use the resistor color code to find out what value they are....However, usually if there is any damage, the resistor will look like it has been HOT or fried. replace the IC's and any bad resistors, and you should be good to go.
If after replacing the IC's and any defective resistors, the convergence is still bad, make sure to use a multimeter to check ALL fuses on the boards, --- sometimes when the IC's go, they will take out a fuse to the convergence power supply. If you find any bad fuses, replace them accordingly!
Hope that helps!

My 46" Samsung TV -


The first thing to do is with the set unplugged remove the lamp the set uses (customer replaceable) and examine it to see if shattered inside.

Lamp door is either on side or rear of set, once door is removed you will find the lamp cartridge which is secured by two brass screws; with them backed out grasp the handle on the cartridge and pull lamp and cartridge out.

Do not touch the face of the lamp but look inside the glass--if it looks like a 1950s style flashbulb with bits of broken glass, you have found your problem.

before you rate this information let me know what you find and what questions you have; make a comment here and the site will email me.

Just recently my GE 46GW 948 46 in. Rear Projection Television when turned on goes from a good picture to an hour glass shape and an almost 3d like picture.When I turn it off then on I get a good picture...


Sounds like a loose solder connection on the Convergence board or the convergence power board. If you are savvy and electrically safe, tap on the boards with an insulated screwdriver to see which has the loose connection, and you can resolder to fix. Repair from a service center = $150-300

Zenith 46" with a "hour-glass" picture.


If the hour glass figure is a seperation of colors that appear to be convegence mis aligned, then, the convergence ICs would be the problem. If the picture is clear and you have a bending on the sides then the pincusion circuit in the horizontal circuit is where to look. Be careful of this circuit, it does control the high voltage. The only way to have a board checked is to have an Authorized Service Center look at it. It does, however, sound like there is a cold solder joint in the power supply that has gradually opened up and now is permanantly open. Call Zenith (LG) to see who they recommend.

Rear projection toshiba picture and color too dark


Clean the GLASS mirror with glass cleaner, clean the lenses with a soft DRY T-Shirt type material cloth, clean the screens with same DRY Cloth very gently. The heat created by the tv goes up and out depositing dust/dirt/soot/anything airborn on the optical path.
