There is a concave on the top of the screen and bottom of the screen whenever i try to readjust the convergence i can get 6 out of 8 crosshairs perfect but i cant get the top and bottom due to the concave...

Hello; You have a failed convergence board. JVC does NOT give me ANY info. They won't even talk to me on the phone! On some sets, there is a digital convergence board and a power convergence board that actually drives the convergence yokes on each of the 3 CRT's. If you have both, either one is bad and probably expensive. I recommend people Don't buy JVC products due to their bad reputation. John

Convergence can only be repaired by going into the unit itself....You MUST know how to do this or risk a lot more qualified assistance!

Red color in left bottom of screen and left side has 3d look. letters on guide in this area are concaved also

try to do a convergence adjustment. If that doesnt work the convergence power supply board is the usual culprit, if the convergence option hasnt disapeared from the menu.
