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!

2003 kia sorento sunroof jammed


spray WD40 on it, and try to work it into the mechanism with a toothbrush. This is a solvent and a lubricant, it may loosen it up by melting any dirt stuck in there. After an hour wiggle all the moving parts and see it loosens up and can move ok.

It would help to see a pic or video. The fact that hitting the top side clears up the picture leads me to believe that you may have a bad LCD panel tab. If this is the case, the only true fix is to replace the screen, BIG $$$

How do you get the deck belt back on the pulleys? 20 hp-46'' deck


It helps to remove the belt gaurd on the left side of the deck. The belt gaurd on the drive pulley ( motor crank) can be pulled out and moved by hand- lay on left side of mower and reach across and pull right side of belt gaurd from hole in frame and swivel away. Once belt is installed slide gaurd back into hole. all other pulleys the belt can just be spun on past the gaurds. Be sure to replace all belt gaurds and saftey devices as they came from the factory.

Need a picture to no how the belt goes on


I have put belts on many vehicles, and if you have purchased the right one it should explain itself with some concentration. Most belts have a ribbed side and a smooth side. if the pully wheel is meant to accept the ribbed side it will also be ribbed. If it is meant to accept the smooth side it will be smooth (possibley with a ridge on each side to keep it centered) Just start by putting the ridges side on one pully and move the belt around each successive pully until you are left with the alternator as the last one. Usually the alternator is the one piece that can be adjusted in so that you can get the belt on and then moved back out for tightness.

Loud ratchet noise


Have you been using ink cartridges other than store bought? Reason I'm asking is that i used a refill kit, and tried those half price refill places, only to find ink was leaking out when not in use & clogged up the ends where the cartridge moves across. take a flashlight & look at the ends of the track that the cartridges slide across on, you may see a build up of ink, that won't allow the cartridge to travel as far as it needs to go to run properly.

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.
