HELLO, I BOUGHT MY PROJECTION TV ABOUT 5 YEARS AGO. I'VE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH IT...UNTIL YESTURDAY. THE PICTURE IS STILL THERE AND THE SOUND IS THERE. THE PROBLEM IS THAT IT LOOKS LIKE A 3-D MOVIE OR A GHOST IS BEHIND EVERYTHING. I SPOKE TO A TECH ON THE PHONE AND THE PERSON SAID IT WAS A BULB. ALSO, IT WAS GOING TO COST $475.00 FOR PARTS AND LABOR ON TOP OF THAT $100.00 JUST COME OUT TO LOOK AT IT. MY QUESTION IS CAN WE FIX IT OURSELFS? AND HOW MUCH DOSE THAT PART ACTUALLY COST?
If you have any solid state repair experience and know how to solder, then all you need to do is get the convergence ICs and replace them. Then the set may need to be alighned a bit. You will most likly need a cross hatch generator for that. Yea that price is a bit steep, but it will end up costing you more in the long run, if you mess up the board while soldering or adjusting the set, and after getting the parts and equipment. I would highly advise you to get another estamate for this repair. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.
