Slight bowing of picture

When watching straight lines (like the TV guide) I notice a slight bowing at the top and bottom. both bow up. At the bottom it is about 3/8" higher in the middle than at the sides and at the top it is about 1/4" higher in the middle than at the sides. Is there an adjustment for this.

Only on newer TV's, yours (I dont think)has the adjustment, if it does it would be in the menu area.

Samsung TSL2793HF - Slight Right Side Pincushion and Horz Line Bottom to Top Until the TV Warms up


Yes, this is rare but I have seen it before--not fixable if it is what I think it is----It is what is called a Dome effect---the shadow mask in the picture tube is actually contracting and or expanding depending on temperature---

Directly behind the phosphor coating (the stripes that you see on the screen) is a metal screen--the holes or perforations in it line up with the stripes on the phosphor screen.

Some masks either have a material or a defect causing the dome effect----Not likely to be anything else---a Pin amp problem will not usually act the way you describe but a shadow mask inside the picture tube will act exactly that way.

There is a wave/bow in the bottom and top of the picture on the screen of my Toshiba 70HX50. When I am in the grid screen in the service mode, it looks like the center is 'bowed' out. How do I adjust this...


Slight error in the alignment of a projection TV is pretty much normal. If the problem cannot be seen on a normal TV picture, I would not spend the money.
However, if the problem is severe and causes colour double images, it is convergence and will need parts replaced - about $200-$600 depending on service call, parts, labour, etc.
Minor adjustment takes a skilled technician. attempting it yourself will likely cause the set to stop functioning. (Digital adjustment is not forgiving)

My 57hx81 has a slight concave bow in the middle top to bottom


Sounds like a problem in the vertical sweep circuit. Check voltages to your convergence ICs. If they are  not to spec then look for bad fuses and capacitors on the power board. These will throw off the DC voltage to the convergence chips causing the bow effect. I've had a single bad pico fuse ($1) cause this symptom.

Pt-47wx49e convergence problem


I just replaced the 2 convergance chips, but it did not seem to fix the problem. I then tested all the resistors that feed the convergence chips anf there was a 2.2 ohm fusable blown. IT was R7050 on mine. That seemed to fix it so that I could adjust all the colors through the convergence 2 screen. There seems to be a slight bow near the bottom when you look at the c2 screen, but not noticable when you are watching a picture. Since I got this broken, I am not sure how perfect it should be.

If anyone can send me the service manual, I would appretiate it. Thanks.

Philips 46-inch Rear Projection with bowed image?? slight distortion



You have a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms. 

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when when using the convergence menu. 
Screen is bowed in but stationary.

Solution: 
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit inlcludes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself. Its an easy fix.

Picture bowing up in middle


The most common cause for this are electrolytic capacitors in the pinn amp and scan amplifiers going out of spec with age and use. It is more rare, but it is still possible have other support components go defective in these areas. This fault is refered to as pin amp distortion.

I have repaired many of this type of problem over the years.

If you decide to troubleshoot this yourself, take care about the high voltages employed in the TV set.

Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36HS500 36" TV - Bowed Picture


it sounds like a convergence adjustment problem. If you hava book on the tv still read it, and it will tell you what to do, other wise, look for a convergence button on the front of your tv, and take the remote and push menu to bring up setup, and go convergence adjustment click it and hit the conv. button on the front of the screen. there should be to lines going vertical and horizontal, these are the limes you adjust with your remote, you have to adjust the red and blue, the tv should blink to let you know which color you are on. when you have them lined up right the line will be perfectly white. hope this helps
