Distorted picture that curves up at the bottom of the screen

My 9 years old Mitsubishi WS-55857 had the same problem (distorted pictures) for couple of months and I was about to buy a new plasma TV. But, I found and I decided to give a try before buying a new TV. I received a convergence repair kit in two days with web site info for detailed instructions with many picutres to explain the process. When I had questions and Ed was very prompt to answer my questions thru the e-mail. I never done solding before, but I am moderate handy person. I spent less than $100 and three hours and my TV picutre looks stunning. I went thru advanced convergence process after I repalced the convergence chips and replaced RCA video cable with better quality and my TV picture looks as good as brand new. Thansk ED for your help!

Distorted picture on my 32" Proscan TV...(about 15 years old)

The RCA GE sets have a problem with bad solder connections in the tuner unit which also causes numerous symptoms including poor regulation, no vertical deflection, low audio or dead set.

Pulling in from the sides is either poor regulation or a bad eeprom/solder join issue

17 yr. old 35" RCA loses color intermittently. Picture & sound ok

Three guns Red Blue and Green in the picture tube of an old CRT set. If one of the guns goes out it effects that color. Sounds like one of the guns inside of the tube is going out, To costly to replace for such an old antilog set that will have to have a convertor box next month anyway.

Picture quality

Which channels? Tuners are divided into bandwidths-----
2-6 is V low, 7-13 is V high and so on.If say, 2-6 acts up, but
7 thru 13 never does,then the tuner is bad.
This solution assumes that video inputs were ok......T.

Only receiving Channels 50 and above; no lower channels

It could be anything from corrupted data in the EEPROM (a memory IC that stores all the channel information and picture settings) which is usually caused by bad ground solder connections inside the tuner itself which is built into the main circuit board and would have to be repaired, not replaced or components inside the tuner section of the main PCB. With that being said - if you have to get a technican to come to the house and repair the set then it would probably be best to buy a new HDTV set. If you can take it to a repair shop capable of fixing the tuner, it could cost close to $200 to repair is my guess, and may work OK for another year or two before the picture tube finally wears out.
