I have a HCM4216W rear projection tv. It was

I have a HCM4216W rear projection tv. It was purchased in 2003. Last night hte picture became distorted and was rolling quite a bit and then it appeared as if all 3 lamps went out of sync and I have 3 images (red, green and blue) rolling around the screen. It eventually went to a green screen that was skewed and did not fill up the entire display area.
Now it turns on to the green scree for a second and then shuts off. The red light flashes for a while and then stops. Any ideas

The convergence IC have gone bad, bad solder connections to IC or probably both. The board as a whole can be purchased as complete (look to the web to find where to get) and is fairly easy to replace. Unless you have extensive experience with component level repair I would suggest you take the board to a TV shop to repair. This option maybe slightly less then replacing board. Check with your local TV repair shop to see which option is the best in your area.

One of your capacitors n the video board burnt out. You will have to use a multi-tester or capacitor tester with service manual to determine which capacitor it was that burnt out.
