    i am having the exact problem as this person. It was working fine and the problem came up when I turned it on this evening. Is this fix under $250?. If not I will buy an LCD or Plasma.

    I have the same problem it is the green that seems to be out, causing an arc across the bottom. The convergence procedure doesn't fix this problem the arc remains and everything is distorted.

This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets.
  • 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.

Convergence Problem

The convergence IC's have been known to cause similar problems and both would be replaced at the same time. Not an easy job for a DIYer. I would get a repair shop to fix it.
