Colored lines runnning vertical or horizontal are all indications that either the display electrode or address electrode has suffered damage. Because of the manner in which these units are manufactured there is a slim to none chance of it being repaired by a local repairman without replacing the screen which depending on the unit may make it a better solution to buy a new TV. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I assume you were prepared for the worst.Hope this helps you.

Top left of screen looks warped as well as bottom. Almost as if something hit the screen, but the kids say it wasnt them. Tried the convergence feature on the setup, but that does not help in any way. Also...


has the screen been pushed in?
does it look cracked?

the reason the pic looks warped may simply be the magnifier screen (lenticular) behind the outer screen (freznel) has been pushed in giving the distorted look

if so and you are capable it is not a big job

however if either screen is cracked then it is an expensive job

The only solution is to replace the TV. A cracked LCD or plasma screen is usually only good for Art..all the pretty colors around the crack.

Plasma screen has cracked without any warning


I have not heard of a plasma panel ever cracking on there own. Are you sure something did not hit the front of the display panel, or unit was dropped without you knowing?

Three seperate colors on Screen


Screen may have a hair line crack in it causing projection to be distorted. Inspect screen very closly with magnifying glass if necessary to insure no cracks. If crack is found replace screen.

Convergence


If the CRT Projection television has several colors or one that arent lining up, if due to an impact - you may have a broken mirror, if just happened all by itsself it may be a convergence issue, either issue is repairable, probably for around $400-$500. I dont recommend taking a set like that into the shop as sometimes transport can break/crack a mirror or throw convergence off.
