Rear Projection TV

I have a 46" Mitsubishi HDTV that is 5 years old. After 3 years, the convergence went which cost about $430 to repair. Over the last couple of days the picture will be fine and then all of a sudden it will get very cloudy - lie you're watching the picture but there is a fog over it. Please advise. thanks

Convergence Bad

Changing the convergence IC's could cost $300-$400 total.CRT based TV rear projectors are more or less obsolete now,with everything going to DLP and LCD.These days 5 years is the expected life on these TV's (most extended warranty contracts only cover up to 5 years)

Projection TV not working

The Convergence IC's have went out. This is normal for this TV after about 5 years or so. You will need 2 sanyo STK392-150 IC chips, and about 6 resistors to fix. The cost is about 50 US dollars if you do it yourself. If you are not good at soldering, don't try it. However if you are, and can read an ohmeter it will be no problem
