I've had one of these tv's for about 6 or 7 years and recently the picture is starting to curve in from both sides. Is there something I can have replaced at a resonable cost vs trashing it???

Phillips 47PFL422D/37 I've had the tv about 6 years with no trouble. But now the picture is to dark to watch it also pulses. I've tried to unplug it and plug it back in I get a picture for

First, average life on these sets is about 3 to 4 years at best and only boards are sold so even if you can pin point the board (no individual parts are sold) it is likely if will not get fixed and doing so is a bad investment as all the boards are now old.

Poor picture quality. Picture also tends to curve

The curving is caused by bad digital convergencr chips (2) located on large signal board. They need replaced along with blown pico fuses and the convergence resistors. Chips are huge compared to a regular IC. 2" x 1.5" and they will be bolted on fairly large heatsinks. Cloudy picture is most likely the coolant needs replaced in the picture tubes. This needs to be done approximately every 5 years.

make sure you do not have anything sitting on the top of this tv. I have seen this on my tv by just gently putting pressure with my finger on top the screen starts to curve up at the edges.

Circuit City ''esa'' TV picture curves in on sides

Curving in on ( hour glassing ) the sides is usually the indication of a bad regulator IC. Since it occured after a move, you may also have a bad solder connection or smal crak in the board. To check for cracks ( assuming you have unplugged the power and are relatively comfortable doing so) shine a flashligt from the top of the board ( with the components on it ) and examine the bottom of the board. If a trace is broken you can often see it this way

Rca 52 inch keeps shutting off and picture is curved

The curved picture indicates failing parts in the pin amp section and probably some faulty parts in the scan amplifier sections. The set is being turned off by the uPC because there is a fault indicated, and it is going in to protect mode.

The set will have to be properly serviced.
