If it is so badly curved the channel display is hard to see you have a part in the set bad---these like most have a pincussion circuit--it is individual parts that make the set have a straight picture on the sides especially, years (decades) there were controls in sets for this but to make sets cost less they use fixed parts.

It will not be an expensive part in most cases but finding it and replacing it in a older set may not be economical.

If you really like the set call a few shops to see if they will work on it and get a ballpark estimate.

Let me know if you have questions.

SOURCE: Tv has lost two outer sides of vision despite changing picture mode

That's either a high voltage problem, or a deflection problem. WARNING, CRT Based Televisions have potently life threatening voltages inside them, and should be serviced by trained personnel only. With that out of the way. According to http://www.repairhelper.com It's a capacitor failure Fault - Width and E/W correction fault Remedy - Replace R626 and C630 I don't have a manual so I can't tell you for sure what the resistor and capacitor do, or where they are located.

SOURCE: can only see half the picture

your problem is in vertical output section.

the ckt which is connected to vertical output section is called feedback ckt.

please check.

1 loose contact in feed back ckt.

2 mostly this problem is due to electrolytic capacitor failure.

3 vertical output  IC or transistor failure.

4 check for proper supply to vertical output.

5  low value resistor failure in v/output ckt  (.in rare case)

IF YOU ARE NOT TECH PERSON PLEASE TAKE HELP.

  1. hope this will help.

SOURCE: Suddenly no sound & no picture overnight: is my TV dead?

If you have static siugnal, sure TV is not dead.

Check the aerial cable, ensure it is well plugged in and getting signal.

If you are using a receiver box, check cables to TV and receiver (freeview, sat, cable etc.), try setting channels on receiver again, if it does not work but you get static, then either the cables or receiver are defective.

Test the TV on standalone , connecting it to an external antenna.
Tune again the channels, and save the preset.
If still no signal then the antenna socket on the TV may be defective.

Try using the TV with a DVD.

If you can watch DVDs, and TV is not keeping channels preset, and you tried all the above, at this point htere may be a fault in the tuner card inside tv.

Call the phone number listed on tv user manual to get support, and eventually repair it.

Does your tv run everything else fine? Sometimes cables r screwy or the tv is screwy(I'm not denying that you have a bad ps3) but you can still get the warranty on it. If the second one does it,it's not the PS3 its your tv or your cables.

Quasar TV sp 2724E Loses the picture


Sounds like a failed vertical amplifier circuit. This is normally primarily contained in an integrated circuit mounted on a heatsink.
There are other possibilities along the line but the one above is the most likely.
Now all you need is a TV repair shop that is still in buisness.

Mitsubishi vs 5043


I turned the set on and everything was fine, then the screen went black and mullti-colored horizontal (arched) lines were flashing across the screen. The next day I turned the set on and everything was fine for about 5 minutes then the problem reoccures again. Haven't looked for solutions till now.

Red Gun screwy!!


You have a typical convergence problem here that happens on just about every tube type projection TV set ever made. There are two STK IC's that will need to be changed. Best thing to do, if you have any soldering experience on printed circuit boards, would be to get the service manual, locate the convergence amp IC's order the correct parts and not any replacement IC's that cost less the 20 bucks, and change the IC's. If you have no solid state repair experience, play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck
