The receiver turns on and allows me to input an address, but when it's searching for directions the screen becomes distorted with multi colored lines and then shuts off. What is the problem and can this be repaired?

It can be repaired, but the problem is that the cost to repair is more than the cost of a replacement GPS, a good Garmin or Tomtom goes for about $140.

My sony wega kf-50we610 unlike every one else i have no problems with set turning on my problem is i cant watch anything do to the picture being distorted scrambled like i can see the menu options and...


It looks like the vidoe board but the fault can be also a distortion in the horizontal / vertical section. So check the PIN amp and related sections. What must be looked is of the HSTAT can be off set.
Deguass the set well to confirm if there is any possibility of a distortion of picture by a severe magnetic field.
Since there can many problems associated with a distorted picture but you can try and see these possibilites other than the Y amp processing. Hope my suggestions helps.

Picture has become distorted, especially towards the side of the television. The colour filters line up towards the middle of the television, but become distorted towards the sides.


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.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

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 - TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

Sound not picture


A few questions:
Are you using this TV directly on a cable line of do you have a cable box or satellite receiver connected?
Do you have sound and no picture on the AV inputs as well, or only on TV channels?
Is there anything on the screen or is it completely black? Has the picture collapsed to a single line across the screen? Is there a picture but it's distorted?
Does the on-screen menu and channel number display properly?

With a little more information I might be able to help you with this.

RCA 27R410T Television colors are distorted


If you`re talking about colored spots in the screen, then you may have a degauss problem. It was frequent for those sets to have bad solder joint on the degaussing coil connector or thermistor next to it.If you`re handy with a soldering iron these connections would be near the a.c line input. good luck and don`t forget to unplug

Blue vertical lines across the top of the screen


G'Day!

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.
