Picture distortion in your rear projection TV is because of failure of convergence out ICs that need to be replaced.
Qualified TV tech will fix it under $150 or $200 and if your are good in part soldering in circuit boards and have electronics knowledge then can replace by yourself.
Required ICs can be purchased from Part Store.

Distored picture on top half of the screen

This is one of the sets with bad HYPER boards. If it clears up after a while this is your trouble;I just checked a site in LA--the only way to get the board is to go to PTS electronics and send them the original board for repair--part alone is over 200 and is soldered in--a lot of these sets are having this problem.

I know I am not giving you good news but I am pretty sure this is what is wrong with your set--seen dozens of them.

if you think I helped you in some way--give me a vote here I do this for free. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR NEED MORE HELP contact me by responding to this post.

Distorted picture on a mitsubishi ws-55613 tv

Their is no more you can do.
Seen this before.

You need a professional.
Stop using the TV until it is repaired.
Continue to use the TV and your problems WILL multiply.

Call the manufacturer to find you nearest authorized service center.

Hello, I have an older Pioneer SD-P55A3 projection tv. I have a problem where the picture at the bottom of the screen appears distorted or, more accurately, "warped". There is yellow and blue that does not...

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Hitachi 46'' Rear Projection TV has distorted picture

Make sure no one pushed the front screens in a little. That will cause exactly what you have. I've seen cases like this where someone would move there set with one had pushing on the front screen and dis-lodging them creating that problem... Hope this helps.

Black/Green Distortion - Picture Quality - Wharfedale

This is no solution but a point in a probable direction.

A tech guy told me ALL the LCDs they have seen in their repair shop have "swollen" capacitors, this is due to voltage instability. Lowering the internal voltage regulator and replacing the swollen capacitors (which eliminate noise) apparently restores the LCD to new working quality. Without actually "seeing" my problem the tech said that should repair it. I have not tried this yet but eventually will begin that way.

Blue streaks across picture

Can you describe in a little more detail what the symptoms are? Are the streaks thin lines or are they large thick swashes of Blue? Is yur video still visible? Sounds like it may be the blue convergence amps or the resistor tied into the amps. is there anyway you can post a picture of your screen distortion?
