Re: sound but no picture except 3 curve bars

Jackman, you have a convergence problem, probably a couple of stk`s and a few burnt resistors, problem is it will cost you at least 125.00 if you do it yourself and it`s NOT a simple job, let me know if you want more info, BMW Rider

You have a convergence problem. Components are shorted out and must be replaced. Unless you're a technician, there's really nothing you can do at this point.
