Are the convergence controls also out of adjustment? Please respond to this same post and I will help you. If you could post a picture of what the screen looks like that would even be better.

Picture Bowed towards the center


It is a convergence problem, probably one of the convergence ICs has blown and must be replaced. Call the number in the last pages of your user manual to get repair service in your area.

I have the same problem with a 61uwx10b. I


the ics could have been defective, or maybe you missed a resistor or something. the ics could short out and cause the tv to totally shutdown if dead shorted, as some of these have no fuses. I would doublecheck all your solder connections and make sure nothing is shorted out and look for other bad resistors. here is my tutorial if this helps

Bowing of picture at top and bottom towards center.


Projection sets have two very common problems outlined below.

The first common problem is convergence

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. The TV can also shut down when the convergence starts to fail.

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,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith, RCA and others.


You can more info and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from TV Repair Kits using the link at the end of this article.

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

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*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

Double focused, red and green, bow in picture top and bottom


hi
You have a convergence problem
If the set has auto focus and will not complete its cycle.
The Auto focus module is bad, (expensive)
If it completes and the problem is still there.
Then check for bad conv. drivers (stk****) or cold solder joint on one or more of the 3 drivers pins.

The fuse fails when the convergence power supply fails,putting a new fuse in the set will let the unit come back on but convergence is not working,check in screens in the menu to see if you have adj. projection t.v.,if the is not in the menu,replace reg ic part number 215530 on the convergence power supply,this board is above the right module mounted on the black plastic.,hope this helps

Red convergence is bad.


Hi, you need to change the convergence ICs , STKs: and some resistors,low values; , after changing them, you will have to go into the service mode, to do some adjustments.that's it.

Picture Distortion


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
