This happened a few years ago to me. I called the repairman out and he said that I had my tv too close to a magnet source, which turned out to be a speaker and also the reciever for my home theater. See if this may be your problem. Good Luck.

Picture is distorted......bowes inward. Colour is


This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

Gosting image


Hello
Ghost image, otherwise called multiple images, that seen as duplicate one next to the picture, normally left side, are mainly due to the reflections of TV signals. That is two signals of the same object, but different in amplitude and in direction comes to the antena of the TV. Both of them gets processed by the internal circuits of the telivison, and comes as images on the screen. The first strong signal will produce strong image, and following will get to the next of it. Due to, say if a news reader appears on the screen will have a shade of the image very next to it, which is annoying.
The only remedy is to prevent the reflected image that comes to the antenna. Tv signals are transmitted in a techniqe called Horizontal Polarisation. That is, signals send from the transmitting tower comes to your antenna, in such a way that to a snake travels on a plane land. On the way if there is an obstruction, it will be delayed, if there is any high rise bulilding or so behind the way of its path that is some distance far away from your antenna or just behind the antenna and transmitter, that high rise structure will reflect the transmitted waves back to your antenna, which causes Ghost image to be produced.
You just reorient your antenna in suach a way that there will be no reflection signals comes to it, and the orginal transmitted signal from the tower only reach to it. You may have to repoition it or have to hoist higher or so. It is a trial and error method, while watching picture on your TV.
I advice you so, thinking that nobody has realigned the video If stage circutary inside your TV. If anybody has done so without proper testing and aligning equipment, this fault may occur. OK.

My mitsubishi vs-50609 picture is curving inward on all 4 sides. No idea on how to fix


Remove the fly back transformer and replace some of the Mitzy's had chips to control the screen. It will be a large IC with fins on top and should be quite hot if it is showing bowing. If you dont have skills in soldering and unsoldering it may be better to call a professional. It is not an expensive job about $100 -$150 all up

I have a JVC 48' widescreen tv approx. 7 - 8 yrs old. the picture is now extremely bad all of the colors seem to be out of wack and the picture bows inward toward the middle at the top and bows inward...


There's a miror or one like this might have a ''aluminium sheet'' miror.
Open the upper back cover to see what going on there, pretty sure something run out of place...

Borders bowed inward,blurred red,blue, & green


the next time it is not working go into the customer menu with remote and call up the convergence grid and look---there---if convergence is way off and or comes and goes---this set uses 2 Stk-392-570 ic's and it is quite common to see them become intermittant.

Sounds like your convergence chip has gone bad. Usually costs about $300-$400 to fix. I would call a local TV repair shop and let them give you a free estimate.

Tv repair


My Tv was doing the same thing, and I had to unplug the set in order to get rid of the blinking light. And what i did was to turn the power on and as soon as i saw the picture i turned it off, I did this 5 times and on the 6th time I let it power and tv stayed on, however something did happend to my set, i found that my convergence was wacky. Tried to center convergence but i could not center the blue. Turns out, i think the problem is with my Convergence ICs that went bad. I can still watch tv but the Image has blue color shadows and the picture slightly bows inwards from top and bottom. To sum this up, i will need to replace 2 ICs, IC C5AA00000203, and this should fix my problem. I will do this repair myself, each part is about $41..

Let me know what happened to your problem.
Thanks
Tony

Edges of Picture & Text Sloping


This mis probably a cold solder connection in the horizontal circuitry called the pincussion. Theres a couple of coils and resistors that overheat from time to time and the solder connections get loose. Not really for a handiman has this tv has hi vboltage inside even when turned off. Shouldnt cost an arm ans a leg to fix if the repair shop knows what they Are doing. Good Luck
