42" either an LCD or Plasma, neither one of these sets or any like them have convergence circuits in them. Totally different design. Can you describe your blurry picture in a little more detail please. Magnavox made a 46" old style projections tv 15 yrs ago that had a convergence circuit, but I don't think you have that.

It really depends on your level of expertise. Usually this is technically a very involved repair

    If it truly is an LCD or plasma, as cricket says there is no convergence, If you post your model number we can provide further insight

My RCA big screen bows at top and bottom and picture is very blurry can I fix it myself. Cost?


Hello. You have a failure of the convergence circuitry. If you are familiar with soldering, you might be able to fix it yourself. First, I would check for what's called "cold solder" on the pins of the convergence ICs. If there's cold solder joints, re-soldering them might fix the problem. Repairing convergence circuits can be difficult if you're not used to doing it. Then there's the problem of finding the parts. If you want further information, let me know. I hope this helped.

Thats caused by a convergence failure. The Sony type 1 convergence repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com will usually correct that issue the kit contains the components and the CD with repair instructions so you can repair yourself.

The convergence ICs and resistors need replacement. The DPTV305-345 convergence repair kit works for most Phillips rear projection Tvs. The kit contains the two ICs 12 resistors and the CD with detailed instructions

Blurry screen double vision picture


The convergence circuit has failed. It is not a easy fix due to the tear down needed to get to the circuit area. I would call Mitsubishi at 18003322119 to get a Authorized Service Facility to check it out and give you a estimate of repair cost.
