That sounds like it could be the hyper module causing the problem. It usually caused by bad capacitors on that board.

How do I fix the picture


There are two common problems on this model that have very simiar symptoms.
The first problem is known as Convergenvce problem. This is when the colors are not aligned, look 3D, etc. When this occurs the colors wont jump around or look jagged...instead they just look overlapped, warped, 3d, etc...

The second issue which is the one I believe your set has is known as a hyberboard failure....When this happens the tv video will move around...look jagged or scrambled, etc....also...sometimes the TV will shut down....

Both of the above can be repaired with parts or kits from sites like www.TvRepairKits.com

My sony wega kf-50we610 unlike every one else i have no problems with set turning on my problem is i cant watch anything do to the picture being distorted scrambled like i can see the menu options and...


It looks like the vidoe board but the fault can be also a distortion in the horizontal / vertical section. So check the PIN amp and related sections. What must be looked is of the HSTAT can be off set.
Deguass the set well to confirm if there is any possibility of a distortion of picture by a severe magnetic field.
Since there can many problems associated with a distorted picture but you can try and see these possibilites other than the Y amp processing. Hope my suggestions helps.

54inch Hitachi TV has double figures and colors red, yellow-not normal. Set approximately seven -eight years old. Lost remote control and direction book in moving. Is the set worth getting fixed? Generally...


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Screen is srcambled


Hello

In the cause of dropping the phone,the FLEX shifted from its original position.

A flex is found in Flip phones and slide phones,it is what connects the screen of the phone to the panel of the phone.

What you should do is this;

.open your phone

.you will see something like a little wide plasticlike cable (that is your flex)

.remove it and fix it back properly (be careful) you should hear a click sound

.close the phone and switch it on,you wont have a scrambled screen anymore

if you cant do this yourself,get somebody with a bit of experience to do it for you

Thank you for visiting fixya
