Lines on screen

I bought this tv from my friend, and it seems to have small hairline cracks on the screen or underneath. My thought is it may be spider webs. how do i diagnose and try to clean the inside of the screen. Im not an authorized repair person on these things. I dont want to break anything.

Bought rear-projection Panasonic TV from a friend. Unfortunately, the mirror got cracked when they brought it to us. Is it possible to replace the mirror so that the TV can be used? Thanks!

U mean the screen panel itself.Sorry no,these things are out of productions,even if they still do,they'll cost u the same as a new tv,to get the tv screen panel to be replaced.Because it is limited in productions and it is 90% important to the tv functions as a whole tv.

The picture on the tv is curved in the middle sides if the screen how do i fix it to where the picture fills the whole screen?

Their are pincushion circuits the compensate for inward curvature. It is common for solder connections to break on the pincushion transformers or the connections where the transformer wire is wrapped around the connector pin. Careful inspection under a magnifying glass while manipulating the pin sometime will show hairline cracks in the solder. Their are also adjustments on the convergence board that will compensate. The adjustment potentiometers on the convergence board also have shown to be prone to solder cracking on the PC board

I have a Philips Model 50P8341. About a year after purchasing the sound started intermittently going out. Seemed like when it heated up, the sound was gone. I simply turned the internal speakers off and...

Thats the small signal board. Check the solder connections on the main board where the connector is where that board plugs in Phillips has been plauged with bad solder joints in that chassis. The solder may have hairline cracks in them.

Wobbly lines on my Toshiba TW56X81

This sounds like a input problem. The source of the signal may not be well matched to the expected input spec. To test, see if the "SETUP" menu items are clear. If so it is something to do with a cable, connector, or configuration of the source.

My convergence is off on my tv

The convergence circuit has failed, pretty common problem. Usually 200-300 will get it going depending on if you bring it in or have somebody out
