Remove front cloth cover (over speakers) Then unscrew main plastic front screen and clean lens (x3) and large mirror!

Pioneer 52" projection TV, SD-533HDS,

It is likely that the CRT's (picture tubes or bulbs) are weak. It is a major job to change and all three should be changed to make the picture like new. However, it is not costwise to repair this old of a TV even if you can get the tubes. I estimate the cost of each tube is at least $200 each. I would call Pioneer and give them your model number and see if they are available. Only a trained technician should change the tubes because it requires a lot of time and setting up of the tubes and other things.

Have you tried to do set the convergence with a pattern on the screen? Some tv's have the pattern built right into the setup. Others do it auto just by pushing a button. Adjusting the pattern on one side of the screen may affect the other side, depending on how far out of whack it is.

Magnets (speakers) near by will play havoc with convergence.
