Well, I was out of electricity for 9 days and it dropped below 40 degrees in the house. Once the power was back on and the house was warm, I tuned on the TV and the color is horrable. I tried adjusting the color menu, but it didn't help at all.
I need to know if the power outage is the cause of the problem so I can claim it on my insurance. Also, what it will take to get this fixed (if anything).

Re: Loss of electricity due to the ice storm...
If it worked before and not after i would claim it, also sometimes if you complain to the electric company they will foot the bill on there insurance. power surge can cause all sorts of problems . just my 2 cents. now this set is also know to have bad convergance ic check this site out for repairing it. http://www.techlore.com/forum/thread/18970/Sony-KP-46WT500-Convergence-Repair/
By manual convergence, if you mean electrostatic convergence, then I'm
not sure this is included in the service manual. However, if you join
group, there is a file download called ws500tweaks.doc that documents
this (with the usual caveats, like don't get yourself killed, when in
doubt hire a pro, etc).
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It may be getting low on refrigerant due to a small leak. I'd have it serviced soon. When running at less than peak efficiency it will much more often switch on the heat strips and they are not cheap to operate.
Is it your ice maker, or possible the blades that crush the ice or dispense the cubes? What can happen in the latter case is that during the storm the ice melted and pooled in the cutter mechanism. Then, when power was restored, the blades were frozen solid. To fix, investigate taking out the cutter mechanism and letting it thaw and drain. Then reinstall and use frequently for the first few days to prevent refereezimg.
Many residential refrigerator / freezers are designed to work at temperature considerably above above freezing. Most modern refrigerator / freezer have a single electric thermostat - located in the fresh food compartment. This lone thermostat will control the compressor to keep the fridge (fresh food) section at the desired temperature (usually between 34 - 38 degrees F). The freezer will get colder regardless of how cold it is already whenever the fridge thermostat turns the compressor on.
Now that you see how the thermostat works, let's look at what happens when the fridge is placed in an unheated space - like a garage. In winter time, the temperature can drop considerably below 38 degrees. If the outdoor temperature remains cold enough, for long enough - it will affect the thermostat in the fridge. The temperature inside the fridge could drop below 38 degrees, preventing the thermostat from telling the compressor to turn on. Meanwhile, the temperature in the freezer compartment slowly rises from the normal -10 to 0 F degrees. It will continue to rise until it is the same temperature as the fresh food compartment or until the thermostat in the fresh food compartment tells the compressor to turn on again. This means the freezer contents will thaw.
If the temperature in the garage is even in the 40 to 50 degree range, the loss of cold in the fridge may not happen often enough to keep the compressor coming on often enough to keep some freezer items frozen solid - such as ice cream. Remember, water freezes at 32 degrees F, other products may require lower temperatures to remain frozen, and could thaw at 28 or other temperature.
If the starter cranks but the engine won't start, there could be wide range of problems. Here are some of the most common: - Problems with fuel delivery system (e.g bad fuel pump, fuel pump relay, clogged fuel screen, etc.) - Problem with engine electronics (e.g crank sensor, cam sensor, air flow sensor, power relay, engine computer, etc.) - Ignition system problems, especially on older vehicles with the distributor (e.g bad ignition coil, commutator, rotor, distributor cap, etc.) - Defective ignition switch - Problems with vehicle security system - Internal engine problems (e.g broken timing belt or gear, low compression, etc.)
Make sure that you have fuel in the tank. It may be that your vehicle fuel gauge isn't working properly.The first signs that there is too little fuel in the tank are occasional lugging, loss of power, and a louder, irregular sound of the electric fuel pump coming out from the fuel tank
Most capacitors are designed to have an effective heat usage range before they start to change capacitance values. They will normally run in an environment of below 32F to 120F without any variation in the capacitence rating of the capacitor. Beyond these points the capacity may start changing.
wat temp are you runninr in the refrigerator side? it should be at 38 degrees because now days the are using an averaging sensor inside and also if tis any colder yoou will possibly freeze you produce
HI. the storm has caused an electrical surge that traveled through the home wiring system and, the Oven control received the hit in this case. it is damaged at this point, and it should be replaced asap, if possible. this code represents a major control breakdown. the board is ruined.
IF THE FRIDGE IS COOLING AND FREEZING WITHOUT AND HASSLE THEN YOU DONT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR CONTROL BOARDS.ALSO IF THE WATER IS STILL COMING OUT THE WATER SIDE OF IT.YOU NEED TO LOCATE THE WATER VALVE AND CHECK IF THE VALVE TO THE ICE MAKER IS NOT BLOWN THAT MIGHT BE THE CAUSE OF THE FRIDGE NOT MAKING ICE.
