Wow I JUST bought one of these today with a convergence issue. Someone told the guy that owned it that it was one of the pico fuses but none of them looked damaged or anything so I'm thinking its the IC.
Now on to your picture....that's a very strange looking convergence issue.
I have already fixed 3 other tvs with convergence issues, but haven't seen this. If it is related to the convergence then I won't mind replacing the ic's. If it is something else, I don't want to waste time and mostly money on the wrong thing. I am ready to start on it this saturday, and I hope it is convergence related, and I can fix it. I will let all know how it turns out. Unless someone knows what this is and offers a different fix.
If you remove the ICs and it still has the same distortion you know it is not in the convergence outputs. It certainly could be in defelction or in the convergence gnerator, but the first thing to isolate is the ouput amps.
