Philips 43P8341 - Red and Green Smear, bad picture

I own the Philips 43p8341 rear projection television. We've had 2 issues in the years we've had it, first being that no remote will change the input so we have to do it on the television face itself...which we aren't really worried about at fact I don't care about that. My problem now is the screen recently looks like I'm trying to watch oldschool scrambled cable channels that I don't get. There's also an influx of the red and green colors as well. Can anyone help?

Philips 43P8341 will not turn on

sounds like your two convergence ICs are shorted out, plus you probably need two 6.8ohm resistors ICs are part # STK392-120
should be installed by a trained repairman cost about $300-400

43P8341/37 tv is acting up

Generally, a convergence issue...requires chassis pull &
replacement of two IC's.....large STK's on largest heatsinks in set......up-grade for STK392-110,120 = STK393-160...I use
Hitachi # CZ 01341.....Do not use generics ! Also,check for
over-heated resistors near IC's....1 to 2 ohm.....1 to 2 watt.........
