Question about Pioneer SD-533HD5 53" Rear Projection HDTV
TV was working fine and all of a sudden the green image is totally warped and out of alignment. This is not something that can be adjusted through convergence process. Assume it's a part that went out of whack. Green image actually bows in from top and bottom.
Had a TV repairman replace the convergence circuit board. Total cost... $670. Cost of new 52"... Divorce court!

Tips for a great answer:
Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Below are more details for both items. Also, complete repair kits with instructions and repair support are avail from site such as www.TvRepairKits.com
Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out
Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then yourconvergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
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.
