Re: distorted picture

Vertical deflection circuit has a problem. Overwrapping is from a bad electrolytic capacitor. The vertical coil is the larger of the two coils around the CRTs yoke. Follow its two wires down to the connector on the main board and follow the traces there to get to a heat sinked IC with maybe a dozen pins on it. (Get the service lit if you want but this is how I do it) This is the I.C. that drives the vertical deflection. Replace all the caps in the vicinity.
Hope Ya Fix It!

How can I get full screen image without distortion on tv viewing? I only get 4:3, zoom, full and justified. Full looks stretched horizontally with tv, looks ok with dvd.

Most of the telivision transmissions are comes at an aspect ratio of 4:3. Wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you try to see a picture with aspect ratio 4:3 to wide 16:9, it will look like stretched. it is not the fault of the tv. Most DVD recording have the aspect ratio of 16:9 [Wide]. This aspect ratio will be displayed correctly when your tv is also set to wide mode. If you select normal mode at this condition, the picture will be displayed elongated. Ok Your Tv has no probelm.

Our Phillips Protjection TV model: 55P9161, picture is very dark, and fuzzy. There are tones of Greens and ghosting. We have followed convergance, and the other tips on the Phillips site but nothing has...

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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 Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with 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 - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant 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

Concaved distorted picture in 1080 Mitsubishi 65" TV.

This is a convergence rpoblem that is either bad connections on the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder and are comfortable working inside TVs where there are potentially dangerous high voltages, let me know and I'll provide additional details and instructions for fixing this yourself.

Picture distorted

Hello buddylaw,

Can you post a picture of the TV screen with the problem? It will help in the diagnoses. It looks like you may have a thermal sensitive component causing this issue. But I will have to seen a picture of the screen to properly diagnose this problem as to the possible section that may be causing this problem.

Thank you.

Mitsu CS-35805 - vertical distortion issue

I highly doubt the circuit board was replaced, you had a simple 2 minute repair I'm sorry to say. They only re soldered the CRT board or the fly back connections, very common on this TV set. You now have a power supply issue, or a vertical drive or output problem. If you just brought the set home, I would contact the repair shop and see what they have to say and ask them the part number for the board they replaced. bet they say they forgot or don't remember. Good Luck

Colors are distorted, brightness excessive

You may have a bad Fly Back transformer. The focus and screen(brightness) controls are located on this transformer. Some of the new RCA's have had problems with this transformer. If the screen control opens up the picture may either go dark or light which would cause your problem. Also a bad Picture tube could cause this. It shouldn't since the tv is not very old though. I've seen a few new ones go bad. Stargazer
