Vertical red and blue lines on Mitsu WT423111 rear projection

Hi - This is the second time I've had this problem.  1st time cost me ~$400.  Basically, I've got red and blue vertical bars down the left and right side of screen.  The center is pretty clear.  From what I've read here, it sounds like a convergence problem.

I've tried to reset the convergence to factory default and also tried to adjust manually, but no luck.

I'm not a TV repairman, but pretty capable with electronical and can use a soldering iron.  Is it just a case of replacing a couple IC's or board? 

Anyone know where I can get service manuals or scematics for this model.

Thanks for any assitance.

Convergence IC (s) are on the heat sink on the center PCB.

Part # Stk392-570 X 2 or Stk393-570

Check soldered-in pico fuses in power supply .

Use first quality parts and good soldering technique and you should be ok...T.

Sony KF50WE610 Vertical Blue Lines Across Screen

the vertical blue lines indicate some interference from other electronic gadgets near your tv. it started showing up on my sony grand wega when i installed my wireless modem. i almost ordered a new rear projection lamp costing over $100 but decided to experiment. i first moved my desk computer farther away from the tv then isolated the wireless modem router by placing it inside a small glass - the vertical blue lines became lighter in color so i dedided to find another small glass that fit inside the first glass container then put the router in the double glass - no more blue lines and my wireless modem router still works.
do some deductive thinking to figure out what's messing up your tv and isolate the interference.
good luck!

Its either the Blue CRT or the Blue CRT drive Board which is causing the lines, More probalble would be the Resistors on the CRT board. I would recomend unsoldering one side of each resistor on the Blue CRT drive and lifting that end up out of circuit and checking, one may be open which would cause that symptom

Sony tv red flashes

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you have a shorted red picture tube.It is not at all uncommon on sony rear projection. The gun shorts and the set identifies the problem and goes into shutdown. Usually there are diagonal lines in the picture before it shuts down. this is an unfortunate problem because this set delivers a great picture. The dealer cost of the tube is around $200. When the repair is complete your're probably looking at $400-$600. The only problem is that the green tube and the blue tube also have chance of having the same problem. It'a tough call . But from my experience , I have replaced the green tube and had the blue tube goe within a year. Scrivitron

Samsung HCM5525W TV red blue outlines on images

The Samsung has bad convergence IC's most likly. This should be repair ONLY by a trained technician as a TV set is not a place to experiment or tinker with because of the extremly high voltage inside. This repair should cost you in the range of 250 to 400 bucks . Good Luck
