Picture bowing up in middle

While watching straight lines like the sat. guide the picture is bowed up in the middle. anout 3/8" at the bottom and 1/4" at the top. Is there an adjustment in the back for this and can I do it myself? I do have alot of video savy as I build computers and have fixed some TVs before.

Thanks

    Thank you. Since there is not a simple adjustment to fix the problem, checking caps and repairing such a problem is something I would not tackle by myself. But the info is important so when I call the repair shop I can describe the problem correctly. Pin Amp Distortion.

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.

Picture problems


Is it one color that has moved? Sounds like a convergence problem. Find a channel with a fixed picture, or if you have digital cable or satellite pull up a guide, something with a straight line across the screen. You will likely see one of the colors is bowed or or shifted. You may be able to adjust that with your remote under the "convergence" adjustments in the menu. If it will not adjust it will need work done to the convergence circuit. Not a DIY project.

YOU HAVE A ALIGNMENT PROBLEM, ON YOUR BOW OR PINCUSION, OR A BAD RESISTOR, THE COLORS NOT LINING UP COULD BE A CONVERGENCE PROBLEM. I ADVISE YOU TO LET A EXPERT TO THIS DUE TO THE HIGH VOLATE ON THE CRT(PICTURE TUBE)

Bow like image


You likely have bad convergence output ic's type #STK392-570.  These can be purchased at UED 800-648-6657.  You will need to remove the board they are mounted on to be able to usolder the old ones and resolder the new ones.  These will be mounted on heat sinks.

Convergence amps problem.

If it works after a kick I'd say poor solder joints on the convergence amp leads

you have a convergence problem.. If you understand how this works then you can go into the set find the convergence ic's and replace them and sometimes you need to do some alighnment as well. Its always best though to let a service tech do a job like this as he will have all the proper equipment to adjust and troubleshoot the set Good luck
