I've had this tv for 8 years, bought it brand new....when i turn tv on it seems as though the picture is bunched in a smaller picture than the actual size it should be(55inch) picture picture is small and you can barely see it... picture goes in and out until it seems as though it heats up 15 -40 mins. then it will have full picture, however it may still go in and out a few more times volume may also go in and out as the picture is trying to adjust itself??? HELP this is driving me crazy!!! Is it worth fixing or should I just buy a new one?????

This Orion TV made by Sansui was bought by me two weeks ago. It didn't last a week. The sound was terrible, picture was great, and it wouldn't hook up to soundbar without hearing a long delay in sound (A/V or Digital output tried two). I contacted their customer support twice, they were awesome. Told me this model has know issues and said to just bring it back. I found another TV for same price ($399) and same size (46) but it's LCD not LED, better picture and great sound! It is Insignia don't remember the model #. Bought at Best Buy (their house brand).
The board that call the T-CON board it is dying and dead soon.That why it is causing horizontal or vertical lines and distoted pictures.This T-CON board sit in at the bottom in the middle of the tv LCD screen panel and it only job are to decoded pictures pixels before it go onto the tv LCD screen panel.Tries websites Shopjimmmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole new refurbish T-CON board for the replacement.
It seems as though the bulb(s) in your unit are about to go out. This is repairable/replaceable by calling your manufacturer. If you are still under warranty they can help you by possibly troubleshooting/replacement/referrals.
If the shrinkage is just the top & bottom then it is relatively easy/low cost fix. Most probably, a capacitor in the vertical section is nearing end of its life. This would be the biggest of the bunch and would be something like 47uF/50V.
If however, the shrinkage is on all four sides, then it is the master power supply that is at fault. Chances are the main B+ is getting low which cold be caused by the big filter capacitor or an erratic regulator. This is not a simple fix and would require the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Have you checked for dust on the Tubes and mirror? This may cause a bad picture quality. Also power supply related problems like capacitors can cause a dark picture. Try replacing some of them in the power supply area and line stage.Also adjustments in the service mode,but for this you will need the service manual. Good Luck,JUS004
I just replaced a lamp in a Sony LCD projection that was just over a year old and it was bad. It was a VERY dim picture. You have a DLP but, in either case a dim or dark picture is almost always caused by the lamp.
I think the set is worth repairing,it appear it has a loose conection and a few other, as well as overheated areas witch will need to be resoldered to prevent any other problems,if you are familiar with tv service you could check the horizontal drive and output circuits,if you are not too familiar with tv's be safe and call for assiatnce from a servicer.To correcthis problem it should not be too expensive.
When you say brand new, just how new is it? Your unit could be covered by the warranty. Certainly something worth checking into. If it works fine on all inputs except cable and the cable box has been changed your problem is probably in the digital receiver in the TV. This is something you will need a qualified repair tech to look at but should not be an expensive fix (compared to the cost of the unit). First make sure it is not covered under warranty. Free is still better than having to pay! Good luck.
