Question about Philips 50P8341 50" Rear Projection Television
Double colors, doubled up text at the bottom, curved at top and bottom.
How do I solve this problem.
I am not sure if I can get this cheaply fixed.
You need to replace the STK ICs. The typical cost to get this fixed by a pro is about $300 - and it doesn't mean that he/they will do a job better than you do. The parts are less than $100 (about $20-$30 for the IC's) if you want to do it yourself. Replacing only the IC's MAY solve the problem; however, many people have also had blown resistors requiring replacement. Why would you ask should you replace both of the IC's if only one is shot?! If one is shot the other one is not far away and for that little price of the chips it worth changing them both at the same time. Also the convergence board should be checked for cracked solder. If you replace the ICs and the resistors are shot, the ICs may blow again almost immediately, meaning you may have to do the repair twice.
Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.
