Screen shadowing with colored lines

My picture just recently has shown up with 2 arch blue lines from center to the bottom of the picture and the top is shadowing itself

What could be the issue and can it be repaired?

This is most likely a convergence problemand can easily be fixed. If you can solder you can repair this yourself. First try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that failes to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. THese are large black Ics attached to a heatsink and may be marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted.

You will need to replace your two convergence I.C.s.They are two large IC mounted on a large aluminum heat sink.Replace both,look for any burned resistors near them,replace those if needed,and readjust your convergence. Good Luck

Let me know if you need any further help

The 3 colors are off, i have shadows and arches in the screen


It is failure of convergence ICs and these two ICs will be replaced on D board.
If you are comfortable with TV repair and know good soldering skills then can do the job easily.
Convergence ICs are mounted with sliver heat-sink on D Board of TV and part number will start with letter STK...

Convergence. shadowing, arch top and bottom, red and green colors


You have a convergence problem. i see these set all the time at shop. first consult the article in tips and tricks section the fl231 fuse problem. it might provide some answer and might turn out to be a simple repair. If you do not have the convergence option under setup in customer menu then i say you have that problem.. otherwise it sounds like a convergence power board issue. if you have the options try autocovergence first and then if that fails try manual convergence of red and blue if the dont move then it will be convergence power board. let me know and ill try to talk you through it

Open up the front of the set by removing the speaker screen and the black piece of particle board. on the bottom right you will see 4 knobs. Turn those knobs slowly till the arcs go away. The 3 knobs on the bottom are for color. the 3 on top are for the focus.
