    the problem is not the picture tube but more of what drives it( the yolk) but the yolk is not the problem more like the cicuits that drive the yolk. you have an east west problem driven in the deflection circuit. you need service on this problem call a tech for this

  • Robert Johnson Jan 30, 2008

    only a tech can tell you that and they have to open it up to tell for sure, most techs take a bench fee up front which covers the estimating cost (the labor to take appart test vital components, research cicuits, and other stuff). most repitable techs will apply this to the final bill if repaired. be sure to ask for est. first before repairing. my company would charge $100.00 est fee. you may be looking at a total bill from $120.00 to $210.00 depending on what the problem is. this is cheaper than buying a new set. also if you get this repaired ask what the repair garantee is before laying down the down payment. 30 to 60 days is good but 90 days or more is great. if it were my set,(and I have been asked that question many times), to the dump it would go. the age of the set is the big factor, aging phosphor in the picture tube is reason to dump it, it may still produce a picture but it has lost the luster of what it was when new. all phosphor based TVs dim over time (40k hrs. or so is it's half life or 10 to 12 yrs of normal use). it realy comes down to your choice, repair or replace.

I have a WD 65738. While viewing a program, the color becomes distorted, along with a humming sound. Status light stays green.


Hello, it sounds like your color wheel is going bad. the humming noise is usually the bearing in it going bad and it starts to distort the image and finally it will shut the set down because it is malfunctioning......tks

50' philips plasma tv has sound but picture is distorted


I sugest you to change the video resolution settings on the PS-3 to see if TV sets to any one resolution...if you have any other video out (analog from PS3)...connect the out to TV and check video at different resolutions. If PS3 has Deep Color settings turn it OFF.

Distorted picture


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 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, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on - TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

Color ghosting or shadows


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

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.

The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.
