Toshiba tos-50h81 convergence issue

Hi guys, i am wondering if any of you can help me out...i have a rear projection toshiba, and the screen appears to have warped into an orb like motion. for instance, watching sports, the scoreboard scrolls on top and bottom bow out towards the middle of the screen.

my question is this: i know there is a way to straighten this out on a convergence screen not available on the standard menu options. this screen forms a graph, and that is where you can correct this problem. can anyone tell me how i can get to this screen??

You have this in your menu. but your menu will not adjust and fix your problem. if all three colors are bowed in at top and green and blue... then you need to change all convergance ic's and check fuses. also there might be some solder in fuses hiding on the board. Need to also check all fuses around conv ic's and around conv yoke plugs.
good luck.

Color on Panasonic 2004 is off and appears to be warped

It sounds like a convergence problem; most of these sets use two convergence IC chips that both need to be replaced; usually this can be done right in your home.

Rear projection tv screen warped

Hi, this TV is repairable and you will have to replace two devices. the first is the Convergence board. this device regulates the convergence of the RGB stream so it can be projected evenly. it works in conjunction with the CRT's and deflection assembly and the Focus pack(module). The second device that will need to be replaced is the Focus pack(module). This module is malfunctioning and is causing the smudges and warped look at this time.

Replace these two devices and it will fix this set. i will post the Part numbers below along with there respective prices as well.

Focus Pack(module).--- Part Number-- BP59-00005A--- $38.95

Convergence Board assembly--Part Number---BP94-00383A---- $165.95

Please rate and god bless:)
