Top and bottom of TV screen collapsing.

You may have a convergence problem (I will attach some typical photos).

When it does it go into menu and call up convergence grid--if lines skewed and colors mixed it is convergence. This model I think uses two of the STK-392-560 chips and both would have to be replaced if it is your problem.

I can provide more info if you find this is what you have.

PHILIPS 60PW936317 - COLORS GOT DISTORTED AS I WAS WATCHING TV

Your convergence chips and convergence resistors are going bad. When they fail the screen colors will look distorted/3d looking.  Another symptom is one or more colors can't be converged using the convergence menu. You can purchase the parts over the internet. Just make sure you get Sanyo brand convergence chips and the correct flame proof resistors. You can also check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They are working on a complete kit for this model.

Convergence problem

The convergence ICs are located on the left board on a huge heatsink they should be STK392-110 or STK392-120. You can get replacement ICs at the following link and they also provide free step by step instructions on how to remove and install the new ICs.
