My screen went blank but the sound works fine. We were watching TV when the screen went out. The sound stayed on. We still get sound but no picture. Is this worth fixing? If so what is the best way to go...

all in one day my screen started by showing a u look at top and bottom. all three colors kind of separated from each other and therefore made shadows on all the writing and double and triple vision on people and images. then it drawed in from sides and showed some black. then it popped in the back and no picture. the sound then came back on with no picture. so i shut it off and unplugged it. what do i have to get to fix this? thank you, Robert Hopkins

Red and green Shadow on right top half of screen

This is caused by failing convergence ic's. They take the image from the three picture tubes and align them so that one picture is displayed not three. They are the two large ic's on the biggest heat sink1.gif in the front of the tv, but changing them can be tricky b/c resistors feeding voltage to those chips may be bad to. It is a simple repair to a qualified technician but a major headache to a novice. It is economical to repair but I would leave it to the pro's. Hope this helped.

Problem with picture

This is the typical convergence failure you can read about over and over on this website. It will take a couple of STK amp IC's maybe a resistor or 2. if you don't solder well don't try it. It should cost you a couple hundred bucks if you take it in maybe three in your home
