Re: The colors on my TV are really messed up. Help?
You have bad convergence ICs. They are located on large aluminum heat sinks usually near the rear of the chassis. The number generally looks like STK###-###. If you have no experience soldering or in electronic repair I cannot walk you through it on this web site. The repair cost should not exceed $150.00 at a reputable repair site. I would suggest getting someone to take care of this. Good luck.

Hi, It sounds your Mitsubishi rear projection tv got problem with convergence output chips failure, I'm not aware about model number of this tv so unable to provide you specific info however, it is hardware failure and few parts need to be replaced by tv repairman. Convergence output chips make align picture on front screen and if they stop working, you will see 3D look or bowed picture with different colors. Contact local tv repair shop to fix this issue in tv. Thanks.
most likely the convergence Ics have failed. Check F9a04 and F9A05 pico fuses if they are blown you will need to replace them and the convergence Ics.They are located on the center board they are green and look like resistors without the color band. see the photo
