Hi,
It sounds your Mitsubishi rear projection tv got problem with convergence output chips failure, I'm not aware about model number of this tv so unable to provide you specific info however, it is hardware failure and few parts need to be replaced by tv repairman.
Convergence output chips make align picture on front screen and if they stop working, you will see 3D look or bowed picture with different colors.
Contact local tv repair shop to fix this issue in tv.
Thanks.

For some reason the projection does not fill out the entire screen its bow tied in the middle how do i fix that im pretty handy


Projection TV sets have two common problems. The first is known as a convergence problem. Common symptoms are....
  • 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.
The other common problem is cloudy CRT fluid in the lens.

Common Symptoms - you TV may have one or more of these...
  • Dull Video
  • Bright video - whiteish
  • Redish video
  • Halos around objects
You can see some example photos and find a solution here...

Picture is warping and colors are seperating giving a picture that looks like a 3D picture without the glasses


you need to replace both convergence Ics. Post the model number of your set and I will post the correct IC numbers as well as alink where you can get replacements with free instalation instructions. Respond to this same post so I will have access to your symptoms when you post the nodel number.

Intermittent convergence issue became permanent


Hi Ed,

Your convergence amplifiers are definitely bad. The user manual will not work, since it is the same manual that comes with the set when it was new. The service manual can be found at:

P.S. Thanks in advance for rating me!

Your set has what is know as "convergence problem" because of the bowed lines and ghost in different colors,is really not an easy solution,the set should have 3 amplifiers(one for each color)and they need to be replaced with an exact replacement,sometimes just by replacing them the aligment should be close but soemtimes you nned to get into the service menu to do some adjustments,the amps(IC's) are mounted on heat sinks and all 3 have the same part number on its face,they normally read STK--- ---,every set uses different amps,If you are familiar with tv service you have now a place to start working but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help from a servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.
