    Sorry, there is now lines or anything on the picture, it just has a green hue about the whole picture when its on for a little bit. Its fine on some channels, but on the movie channels or a dvd it fades to a greenish blue or green picture. if i change the screen to wide or full or normal its fine for a few minuets then fades back to the blueish green or green. and it hasnt shut off. I got the TV yesterday from a neighbor thats moving. he unpluged it and sat it outside the temp was about 40 degrees, then a buddy and i picked it up and moved it up to my house. it was fine lastnight after we had it on for a while, but this morning it started the fading to green thing.

What you might be experiencing based on your symptom sounds like a damaged convergence IC.

With any Projection TV that has a damaged convergence IC, you do not want to continue the use of the set. If the IC’s continue to fail they will cause a short in the power supply and cause your television to not power up, and possibly damage the CRT’s in the set.

You need to contact the manufacturer or a local service center to immediately replace the convergence IC to protect the TV and the power supply unit itself.

Good luck and have a great day!

    I would recommend to unplug tv from AC wall socket for a day or so then check its picture quality. I think its circuit boards got moisture affect and causing problem, let it dry in room temperature and check it later.
