Okay, someone gave me this tv and I was excited til I turned it on. I have a picture but, it looks like someone pushed the picture backwards into the tv (like the picture is an arc.) The colors are okay, it's just the picture. The guy who gave it to me said it would cost 500-700 dollars to fix but, didn't tell me what was wrong with it. Any help?

Re: Problem with the picture
You need to replace the convergence ICs in this TV set. If you know how to solder and work on printed circuit boards and can follow a circuit diagram, this should really not be a difficult thing to do. If you do not have ALL of these talents, play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair as this TV set is NOT the place to be experiementing around inside of. Good Luck

first of all, is it on the correct av channel, plugged into av1 and av1 selected on the tv. is the lead good, can you swap around some leads with other known to be good leads. are the leads pushed in fully, a scart lead can sometimes look like its pushed in fully when its not. check for bent pins on each end of the leads.
I had dish satelight install on my TV. It worked well for two days, then the picture started showing in a square box. I ffixed the convergence and it seemed okay. The next day I turned on the tv and it had sound, but no picture. When I press the status button, the picture would come on then go right back out. Now I don't have any sound or picture.

im going to tell you automatic searching to operate your tv.... turn the tv on..
push the tv button and the on off switch at same time and watch if the led is steady ,leave the buttons., push play button and wait 5 seconds til the led finishes flashing you have to do this about 20 times to be complete secure your remote control doesnt control your tv....but if the control found the code the tv turn it off push reverse button and leave it and wait two seconds to turn the tv on and that set push stop. ........test all functions on your remote control to the tv.....saludos.
I gave this advice to someone with this same problem so here it is again:
It sounds like your shutdown circuit is being activated. This is due to excess current being drawn. This usually happens in the High Voltage section of the TV or one of the deflection stages. Due to the nature of this problem I would suggest that you take it to a local TV repair shop or have a TV repair person come out and take a look at the issue. The HV section is dangerous and should be dealt with by a qualified TV repair technician.
