Your symptoms sounds like a damaged convergence IC’s.

There are two and sometimes three very large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink.

Most of the time you can just correct the convergence through the television menu. All that needs to be done is line up the blue and red to the green. If the colors do not move then there may be faulty components in the convergence circuit.

You may want to consult a Television Repair Technician, I would estimate the repair at around $350.00 - $400.00, depending on the repair rates in your area.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

You definitely have a convergence problem. Either there is a problem with the convergence board, or you simply have to adjust the convergence (which is probably adjusted via the user menu and IR remote).

Acer aspire 5738 screen fade


From your description, you may either have a bad cable to the LCD on your laptop or the LCD screen itself is going bad. I would guess a repair shop may charge $100-200 for the parts and labor, but you'll have to check your local area for price estimates.

Since your computer is nearly 3 years old, you may want to consider purchasing a new computer, especially since they start at $300-500 brand new.

Can you help me with my TV problem???


Sounds like your color wheel may be at fault. Do you ever hear any unusual noises coming from the rear of the TV? Color Wheels usually make a humming sound as they go bad. This is because the tiny bearings in the color wheel motor have begun to misshape from use and heat. Your TV may have a new type color wheel assy that has a slightly different configuration but the result is the same.
