My HD52W67 has concaved picture

When I turn it on the picture is concaved, the color is shifted slightly to one side, and there are 3 skinny lines across the top. I went to convergence menu and clicked it but all it did was turn the tv off then it came back on with no convergence option. Its a 2005 I bought it new.

This is a convergence problem and can be repaired relatively easily. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. First try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heat sink and should be marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted.

    If you can not solder or don't feel comfortable working inside the set, call for service. If the problem is only poor solder joints, this can be easily fixed in the home in less than an hour. Call around to your local service shops for an estmate.

You have a blown fuse on the Deflection board FL231 it will be on the righthand side of the flyback Transfomer there are 3 of them in a row they will look like small brown retrangler caps, it will be the one in the middle. I had this problem myself just several months ago, replacing this fuse fixed the problem. That fuse controls the convergance of the 3 CRT's, without it the tv can't converge so you don't get the option in the menu.

This is a convergence oroblem. First question is do you have the convergence option in under setup in the customer main menu?... if you dont you may have the very common fl231 fuse problem; i have wrote a article on this under the tips and tricks section. this is a very simple inexpesive repair. If you do have the "convergence option" then you may have to replace one of three cuircit boards
