    Hi guys,
    i am new to this forum and am hoping somebody on here can help me out, my Toshiba 40PW13 has developed a fault, for no apparent reason the picture has gone blurry and the colours have messed up, it has affected the left hand side and the center more than the right hand side.. somebody told me that it was possible my convergance had drifted, so i went into the menu, where you can adjust the red and blue colour positions but found that the green colour was miles out on the left and in the center, giving like a bow effect.
    i have attatched some images and basically would like to know if anyone has seen this before and how much am i likely to have to fork out to repair it.
    cheers guys

    It's certainly a convergange problem but way beyond a simple adjustment.

    Looks like the power feed to the convergence coils has failed.
