Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


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,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*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

DOUBLE IMAGE ON SCREEN. tOP OF PICTURE LOOK LIKE A


That symptoms are due to failure of convergence out ICs in your TV that will be replaced to get correct converge picture on front screen.

There are 2 big black IC mounted on big aluminum heat sink and number would be written on as STKxxx, these 2 ICs will be replaced.

If you want to repair TV by yourself then confirm model number of TV to provide you more info or call local tech to replace said ICs.
Thanks.

Double Vision & Bowed Screen


Chances are that the convergence amps are bad.
If those are mounted on a separate board, replacing the board would be the easiest thing to do. Running the magic focus or touching up the convergence in the customer menu may be required.

Double focused, red and green, bow in picture top and bottom


hi
You have a convergence problem
If the set has auto focus and will not complete its cycle.
The Auto focus module is bad, (expensive)
If it completes and the problem is still there.
Then check for bad conv. drivers (stk****) or cold solder joint on one or more of the 3 drivers pins.

Sony kp-53s35 bowed picture on top and bottom


Good day, scotty1980;
Scotty, welcome to 2008. Hold onto your wallet, the has a convergence problem. Which means that the TV's convergence IC's are more than likely bad. The average cost to repair is about $450.00. Unless you are electronically friendly, I would call an authorized service dealer for repair.
Good luck, big IRISH. PS; Hope this was helpful.

Problems with my 61 inch phillips t.v.,need help a.s.a.p.


Can you explain more about what you mean by big then small? When the picture got small do you mean it shrunk down in size leaving a black screen around the perimeter? Or did it bow in from top bottom? If you van acurately describe what it was doing I may be able to point you into the right direction on diagnosing the problem.
