Cannot fix it yourself, the very sensitive connection area on top of the screen is damaged. Unfortunately this requires a whole new panel, it will be cheaper to get a new tv.

I am currently house-sitting for a family friend. Watching TV last night, the family pet jumped on me, causing me to hit the knobby button between the menu and reset buttons on a sony universal remote,...


This universal remote (or the TV's original remote) should have an Input button, which allows you to switch the various inputs available on the TV (such as HDMI, composite, over-the-air, cable, etc). You can try hitting Input until you see a picture, but be sure to turn on any devices connected such as set top boxes, DVD players, etc.

Top left corner double picture red and green


you have a failed IC resistor usually you can physically see the bad one because it burns out leaving you to guess what the value was. Hitachi offers a convergence fix kit which has 2 IC's and all approiate resistors.

KV-36XBR200 Green in lower left corner


The most common cause is, shadowmask inside of the CRT is magnetized. It sounds by your description that the TV's internal degausser for the CRT is not working. This is serviceable by a service tech.

Most of the time the cause of a failed degausser is the thermoresistor. This is a common type of failure.

Another cause that can show the fault you are seeing is if the shadowmask in the CRT is defective. Sometimes the mask is damaged when the set is being moved, and is accidently banged against something. The CRT is sensitive to this type of treatement.

If the mask inside of the CRT is defvective, the only fix is a new CRT.

That is a mirrior adjustment problem, it is pretty complex to fix yourself and you can really mess up the T.V. if you don't know what you are doing. I suggest a T.V. repair man that specializes in DLP TV's.

Part disclored picture


as it has fallen on the floor

due to that its deflection coil position might  have  changed a little.

due to that its left corner has gone down.

 

deflection coil has convergence magnet on it so due to that there is change in color also.

 

please call tech to re position of deflection coil every thing will be fine as it was.

as per buying another it is up to you.

hope this will help.
