Picture caves in.

The picture will curve in from the top and the bottom toward the center. It's doing this more and more. Does anyone know how to fix it?

    Ok, i haven't been using the TV for 4 months, but now I want to fix it and put it in my family room. What are the "ic"? and do I need to completely remove the heat sinks to resolder them.

This unit quite often develops bad solder connections on the pins of the convergence ic's. Carefully removing the chasis from the unit (marking the connectors you loosen to do so) and then resolder all pins of the large stk ic's mounted on the large heat sinks will fix this problem most times. Please note that continued use with this problem will cause those ic's to fail and then will need to be replaced.

Red and Blue seperate and picture curved toward the middle


You have a hardware problem, you cannot fix it using the menu. in fact you could make it worse.

Try googling DIY convergence repair if you can solder.

If not then call in a pro, about $300

Picture stretching with Red, Green, and Blue Image Overlays


assuming that you have adjusted the convergence and this had no effect. you might have some blown convergence chips and/or resistors. these make the 3 color line up with each other.. my 55 in phillips did the same thing and the more i used it the worst it got. first it was the blue and the red and finally the green., replaced chips and resistors and the problem went away... good luck.. a lot of soldering involved. but the chips are only like 11.00 each and the resistors are like ten for all three.

Curved red lines on the screen and the picture is distorted


This is a convergence problem that can be either poor solder connections on the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder you can fix this yourself. Update this if you wish to attempt the repair and I'll supply additional details and instructions.

this is a indication of convergence problem. the curved picture indicates total or a complete loss of convergence power. I first recomend you read the artilce in tips in tricks section. the fl231 problem it might be this if you do not have the convergence options in setup of customer menu. if not it might be a convergence power board issue

Bad picture


Are the convergence controls also out of adjustment? Please respond to this same post and I will help you. If you could post a picture of what the screen looks like that would even be better.

WS-55809 - Video pinched in center, distorted, yellow/blue/red glow


This doesn't sound like a programming issue. I had a very similar problem about 6 months ago and I fixed problem. I had cold solder joint on the video power board. It was the board in the middle. The power supply was to the right. The video board had a driver with a bunch of legs. About 7 solder joint where cold or loose. I solder the board and my mitsu wide screen was fixed. Hope this helps.
