First of all, the darker the screen, the more it attracts sunlight and heat from the sun, so get the TV away from the window and out of the direct sunlight. Also keep the screen away from heat registers. This can also serve as a problem with dlp screens.
If you are savvy enough along with some common sense and ingenuity, you can straighten your screen in a couple manners.
First very carefully remove the screen and have a prepared flat and smooth surface layered with a perfectly 3 or 4 layer-folded sheet for it with absolutely no flaws on the surface that you will be laying it down on. You now have 2 options: 1. you can take it outside on that perfect sunny 85 degree day and let it sit just long enough to get nice and toasty warm, but not melty and lie another flawlessslly folded sheet with a perfectly smooth board over it to rest in the shade with weights on top of it to press it flat again, or: 2. you can iron it out in a meticulous manner with another layered sheet over it until it is flat again. Be careful with either method though. DON'T let any part of the panel get too hot or you could make it even worse. It will take your best attention to know how much heat is needed and when to stop applying the heat. And NEVER use a heat gun or blow dryer, because the panel is too big for hot air to work in a condensed area that guns and dryers offer. Those will only cause it to warp worse. Good luck

    this fix, of course, will only work if the actual screen itself is warped. If your picture is warped, then it's most likely a convergence problem and the heat trick will NOT work for convergence problems.

Screen is scrambled. Working fine until I unpluged the TV one day. Is it a fuse?


If it looks 3d or warped its a convergence problem

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

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. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some images of convergence problems.

The picture can be seen, but it seems to have a rainbow aura and looks concaved...although the screen is not warped in any way...it was working perfectly last night...turned it on this morning, and we were...


Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

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.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

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. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Warpped TV picture


There are two problems here but may be caused by one component

The flyback transformer or transistor equivalent is faulty The colors are warped convergence controls which may be due to a faulty sustain board or part of the first problem. DIY is not an option and repair estimate is about $3-400.00

It sounds like you will have to replace the convergence IC's in this TV set. Not a really hard repair to do but you will need to know how to solder and work on solid state printed circuit boards. Good Luck
