Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My TV has been damaged by a power surge - the picture is concave and the edges are showing a 3D effect. Can this be repaired without breaking the bank? I think it is a 62" Rear projection.

After power surge panasonic hdtv projection tv model # PT-53WX42F wont come on red light flashes


Bobbie, It dose not sound like surge protector was real effective, the TV will have to come apart to diagnose what has all blown, capacitors, boards etc. Google search can help show how it is done.
Enter all your TV's info, will not power on repair.

Wont turn on but tries too come on,power light blinkink


Internal power supply failure. Was there a lightning storm in your area recently or utility work being done recently? This two things usually kill TV's and other electronics with surges when power is restored. If the set is under warranty call the manufacture, if not, call you homeowners insurance agent to see if the damage is covered w/or w.o. deductible. At least you can get something toward repair/replacement costs. Future fix, purchase and install a surge arrestor in your main AC panel for the whole house or buy a power strip with a built in surge filter/protector for your expensive equipment.

I have a Mitsubishi HD1080 46 inch TV. The projection shows a concave picture and there are red and green outlines like a 3D image but without the glasses. This problem has come and gone in the past now...


I have the same problem. At first I thought the TV just needed some warming up because after a while it would resolve itself. Now, even after hours of being "resolved" it will occassionally revert back to the concave image! Have you gotten any feedback or resolution?

CRT display got concave!


This is a 'pin-cushion' effect caused by components failing in the set.

The colors are distorted and it seems like the only colors that really show are blue, green, and red. When you turn the TV on you can see blue, green, and red lines across the screen. The picture also...


Hi there, this is what we call in the industry convergence board failure. this board regulate the rgb and keeps everything in order so the picture looks nice and clean. when this board starts to malfunction, what you are witnessing is usually the result. I suggest repairing this convergence board. this will fix the 3-d effect.
