Can you describe the distorted picture/ Is it out of alignment? Pulled in from the sides or top and bottom? Or does it appear curved and 3D like? Please respond to this same post and I will try and assist you.

No picture


Burning smell can be caused by a blown component, a short, or dust burning inside circuits.
In all cases do not turn TV on untill the TV had been tested and the problem is fixed as you risk to cause further damage to the unit.

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

Burning smell and distorted picture


One of the components in the horizonatl deflection circuit went bad like a capacitor,the price will depend on the actual part that went bad and your location,the service call in NY could be 300.00 but in pittsburgh might only be 150.00.I still belive is wort repairing.
