This tv will occationally wack out and the convergence (I'm guessing) goes out. It gets an extreme curve or concaved look to the green projection, to get that bizare 3d look. Most of the time if the set is warm, you can turn it off and back on quickly and it will be fine. Some times you have to do this a number of times, but once it comes back in, it can be fine for hours. If it does this when you turn the set on cold, it won't reset. But if you let the set on for while, and try it after it warms up, it will eventually reset itself. Does this sound like a problem worth fixing on an aging projection tv?

Re: Is this Pioneer Elite Pro 118 worth fixing?
You most likely have cold solder connections on the convergence IC's or on the B+ sources for the convergence. The longer you wait to have this simple repair done, the worse this will get and cost you double or maybe even triple of what it will cost now. Good Luck

The tv 100% have convergence problems,it dead.The tv convergence board,require changes 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all it resistors to solved the convergence problems.The shop,will cost u $300-350 for parts and labors.
John, im sorry to have to tell you, you have the normal convergence break down, and any adjustment is not going to fix the problem. The Convergence ICs are bad in this set, and both should be replaced at once, as you do not want to pay another repair price 6 months down the road. In these sets there are no user replaceable parts, unless you know how to work on solid state printed circuit boards and understand about the TV safety factors involved. Good Luck
