Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello , my name is Jack Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions;
Does your tv have a button at the front called " magic focus" and does it seem to help when you press it or just doesn`t do anything ?
Did this happen all of sudden or just gradually got worse ?
Yes, I have tried the Magic Focus (not Color Magic, my bad). This just happened yesterday
O.k then it would look like your TV's convergence circuit went defective I`m afraid.
This is actually a common problem for rear projection TV's and there are kits available to repair this that cost $64.95 for your model
These kits come with instructions and there is even a video that shows you how its done.
You would need a solder iron and some de-soldering equipment though to perform this repair.
If you are interested I will give you the details ?
To have this repaired by a shop would cost you around $250 done at home .
Be right back with some more info
