    My mum has got a 50inch Pioneer rear projection TV. It's been fine for 3 1/5 years, but today, very suddenly, the red has been thrown off to the left by about 5 inches. I've tried setting the convergence, but it wont allow me to move the red inline with the green and the blue. The green and the blue are perfectly in line, and you can see the red is also distorted. She has phoned Pioneer but they will only send an engineer at a silly price. I've had the screen off and the bottom cover, but cant see anything a miss.

    I know it's a long shot, but any ideas??

    Had exactly the same thing with a 50" Pioneer CRT RPTV. Mind you it was nearly a decade old so it didn't owe me a lot. Sadly the cost of repair will probably be beyond economic repair. I was eventually quoted, after a lot of hassle, and £75 just to get it looked at, getting on for a thousand pounds. I cut my losses and wrote it off and bought a new TV. Sorry it's not what you want to hear, I'm sure.

    Regards

    This is a CRT RPTV, and it's about 5 or 6 years old.

    I've no idea what a DLP is (cant say I care). But I posted it in the only section that refered to Rear Projection.
