Question about RCA HD52W59 HDTV Projection Television

1 Answer

3 curved lines top & bottom/blurred picture

My tv is about 1-1/2 years old. On occasion it would just turn off on its own. Today while watching tv, picture became distorted. I see 3 curved colored lines (green, red & blue) across top & bottom of screen, picture is blurry, almost like the way something in 3-D looks if you're not wearing 3-D glasses. Also, the screen is black in the same curve shape at the top of the screen above the curved colored lines and also at the bottom of the screen below the lines. Anyone know what this might be. Thanx in advance
