This is a convergence problem that can be as simple as poor solder connections on the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you wish to attemp the repair yourself, please let me know and I'll look up the parts and provide additional details and instructions. Also, please confirm your model number.

Thanks,

Dan

Has a double picture and looks rainbow


A double pcture with two different colours??? more seriousely the rainbow effect could be of an appature grill un hooked in one of the three tubes (THIS IS DANGEROUS IT COULD IMPLODE) you should have a proffessional looke at it and you should NOT USE OR MOVE the TV until then.

Good luck!

Tv screen is squeezed only straightens out if i bump the top of tv


This is likely your convergence IC solder connections. Does it look bowed and rainbow colored? The red, green, and blue will be mis-aligned causing a shadow effect. If you can bump it then the ICs (chips) are still ok, it just needs resoldering.

Cannot adjust convergence, screen has rainbow effect


You probably need to change out the semiconductors. The parts are STK392-110. There are two of them, one for horizontal and one for vertical. Search it online more.
