    The sides of my KP-53XBR is doing the same pin-cushioning. It just started and corrects itself after a few moments, but I believe it is occurring more often. Can you tell me what might be the fix?



    thanks,

If the picture is bowing in on the sides, this is called a pincushion problem. Please confirm that your model is KP-53XBR45 and I'll look up the probable defective parts.

Not easy with a older set----look to see if a physical control exists in the set for Vertical size (picture too tall) and the adjustment may only exist in a hidden on screen menu.

My 52" RCA P52937SG screen bows on the top and on


What you are describing can be due to a number of different settings.

Focus on the red and green guns
Sharpness on the red and green guns
Horizontal position and size
Vertical position and size.

Please consult a professional for adjustment on these items as they are all near or connect to parts that have Hazardous Voltage.

Color separates and picture bows on 9 year old RCA big screen.


Hi, This is a convergence problem and you can set it right by changing the STKs. It is a professional job and i have knowledge of people who ruined their tv by spoiling some miniature surface mounted components close by. You may need to look at pico fuses too. I would say seeek professional help if you not comfortable working with electronics. Check out at www.fixurtvs.com,

The pic is off there is bowing at the top and


Picture becoming distorted at the top/bottom of the screen is due to the convergence circuit going bad, and is a common issue with big screen projection TVs.

The convergence circuits will need to be repaired, which will generally require some soldering and ordering new parts for ~$75. If you want to get a TV technician to repair it then you will probably be looking in the region of about $300 for a repair.

Here is a link to repair guide for a Mitsubishi TV. Obviously a different model, but the convergence circuits are generally the same for most makes/models - this will give you an idea of the work involved to fix it: http://www.techlore.com/article/22530/DIY-Repair-Replacing-Convergence-IC-s-on-a-Mitsubshi-TV-Set/

Good Day y'all;
When the is picture being intermittent and bowing then the most common problem is that the convergence circuit has failed or is failing. If you don't get fixed, the will go DOA soon.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

can you post a pic of your screen so i can properly diagnose the problem as it could be either a pincushion or convergence problem. A picture would clarify it for me.
