What model number is your set? Can you upload a pic of what your screen is doing? It sounds like you Convergence amps are faulty which is a common problem with all projections as they run hot. Its a fairly cheap fix under 20.00 if you can solder you should be able to handle it easy enough.

I have a 9 year old mitsubishi projection tv


Could be a problem in the high voltage section or a bad signal board. Let the TV tech do it.

Good luck

Fuzzy picture, oval shaped, scrolling up slowly


I would start by checking the large filter capacitors in the power supply. I can't be sure since I'm not seeing the set, but it sounds like you're describing AC ripple. In a 20-year-old set, some of those electrolytics will be drying out. A few replacements may take care of the trouble for you.

Sony KP-53V85


My unit is 9 years old, almost 10 (in 2 months) and started the same a couple of months ago. The only way to fix it is to have them serviced by a tech and replace the projectors. Its just the age/use of the unit catching up with it.

Many resellers sold them with an offer to sell you an optional maintence service where they would fix/clean/replace the projectors for upto 5 years after purchase. I'm not sure if they even have the parts anymore since these tv's are no longer produced. After market repairs are likely to cost as much as or nearly as much as buying a new flat screen tv.
