My son inherited a 1994 Mercury Sable with 12,000 miles that hasn't been driven since 2006 and sat outside in snow and sun. Repairs will cost $2,300. What are odds transmission won't work eith


Well anything is possible, but I would expect the transmission to work given the time and mileage.
Is there any way you could drive it a short distance before spending much money ?
I am assuming you are having the fuel tank drained and the cooling system flushed among other things.
I would change the fluids and try to drive it a few blocks before spending money on much else to see what it will need.

Picture is bowed inward and looks like a 3d image without the glasses. I also have a green, red, and blue line curving across the top of the picture.


Looks like the focusing lens may have moved a bit or the projector lamp has gone weak. Get a technician to check up the projector.

There's very little you can do here.

Picture is distorted appears to bend inwards


I am assuming you are talking about the horizontal, if that is the case and the picture bends in from the sides it is likely there is an electrolytic capacitor dry or leaky, usually easy to recognise, look at the top of all the caps around the horizontal section and see if you can find one with a bulge at the top, replace it, look around where the scan coils are plugged into the main board and toward the horizontal output stage area, there are other things that can cause the same symptom however, I have found that to be the main cause. It is worth looking at the primary power supply stage especially the mains cap ( the largest capacitor there, usually 250v or higher,) remove it,( oh a word of warning- discharge it first, just in case) look at the bottom and look for leaks. if you have a cap tester, it will save time, if you can use and own a oscilloscope, look for ripples in the mains...hope that helps Phil

This tv has been a nightmare, its been down 3 times in 4 years.


The convergence board, AA95-01799G is available from http://www.samsungparts.com for about 122 bucks + shipping. You also may need to get the service manual so you can do the convergence alighnments with this set when you replace the board. You will also need the manual to perform the perfect focus alighnment on this set if you have that feature. Good Luck
