Appreciate the direct "Ask Me" and your understanding. Again our apologies for any inconvenience due to the disconnection.
With your indulgence, to your concern:
- Ifno amount of adjustment could align/merge the images, then it would besafe to assume that the convergence amplifiers are faulty.Additionally, the bowed effect strengthens the likelihood of faultyconvergence board.
- This is a known common repair, so much sothat most owners are performing DIYs (do-it-yourself) for those unitsno longer under warranty. Should you consider the DIY, then pls findbelow specifics which may be helpful otherwise pls bear in mind that ifthe unit is still under warranty, a DIY could and would void saidwarranty. Your choice then of course, warranty repair or DIY.
To the actual repair:
- Boardreplacement - by far the fastest, the easiest. As the term/nameimplies, identify/remove the erring board, seek/order a replacement,swap, align and the jobs is done.
- Component level - thecomponents within the board are tested using a DVM or a VOM, thedefective parts identified, order a repair kit, desolder the defectivecomponents, replace them with the new components from the kit, cleanthe solder work on the underside of the PCB (printed circuit board),reassemble, align and the work is completed.
