This sounds like one of your convergence IC's has burned out. A convergence IC should be replaced and the set realigned by someone with experience in convergence circuits.

Hi all,\r\n Ok, I have a Sony KDF-60XS955, about 5 years old. Yesterday, the picture started dimming noticably. Today, it's so dark it's unwatchable. I've read that it may not be a lamp issue, since...

Above is your user manual, below is your service and repair manual.

This may very well be a lamp problem, or it may be the "Driver" for the lamp, or indeed the Power Supply to that lamp, unfortunately one must troubleshoot these issues to isolate the actual problem, Please use these manuals, and you should soon be able to isolate and effect a repair.

Swirling colors unwatchable screen RCA rear projection 52"

I will assume it does this no matter what the input is, It sounds like the board that controls the projection lamps is causing them to misfire? Or light up out of order in rapid succesion? you will probably need to have the TV serviced, or at least an estimate, so you canfigure out exactly what part has gone bad,( hard to tell sometimes when were not there), but be carefull if you decide to service it yourself.

Hi,It sounds like the convergence is out on your tv if it has been moved recently this can cause this problem but it really needs a technician to examine it.

It is probably a convergence problem which would involve solder work to change convergence i.c.s or if there are not colored shadows around everything it could be a problem with tubes. On a few of these I was able to remove the front grill and take off the small door, and with an insulated screwdriver gently tap on the neck of the tubes with the set on. Now if the picture flickers you have some particles on the filaments of the tubes and sometimes the debris will break free when you perform this, allowing your picture to restore full color and brightness without changing any parts whatsoever. Otherwise, the convergence chips are located on a large metal heatsink and have a generic part number printed on the front of each. Sometimes you have to remove a pressure clip to see it. Hope this helps, Russmann.
