My 65 mitsubishi has started to have squiggly lines through the picture when you first turn it on. the picture also goes concave then back to normal. After awhile, it stops, but is happening for longer...

Sounds like the convergence circuit is starting to fail...there are kits available for this set from . The kit isn't all that expensive but the labor to have someone put it in may be expensive.

Blurred picture

You have a convergence issue. What model do you have so I can be of further assistance to you? Please update the model, chassis number, and year of manufacture which can be found on the back of the television on the white sticker.

Tv blurred and concave w/ a half bend coming from all sides; picture off register.

The Convergence circuit has failed. it is not a simple repair and I would suggest that a Sony repair facility to do the work. I estimate the repair to be around 350.00 to 400.00.
I hope this helps,

I have a Mitsubishi 55 inch rear projection tv, ws55819 on which the convergance is gone bad. I'm getting a concave picture with multiple colors and black lines with a blurred picture. this happens mutiple...

Your reference to concave picture suggests a high voltage problem and not convergence. If the raster can't scan from left to right , top to bottom, your having High voltage trouble. if your colors are not dropping on top of each other that is convergence. I would suggest it may be time to consider a purchase of the new HD set for the cost of this repair. good luck

Picture is blurred

If it's a projection tv, setting the convergence is normal and necessary sometimes. Go to the menu setup. You should find an option in there for setting the convergence. It's basically just lining up the cross-hairs (+) of all 3 colors so the picture is not so blurry. Just make sure you set all of them that you see on the screen. They all should be sitting on top of each other. Hope this helped you.
