I searched the threads but did not find my particular issue. The TV seems to work fine and the picture looks good except for the convergence screen at the edges. The geometry is just a little off at the edges. I was told a long time ago by a Tweeter tech that this is often observed. For quite some time, years, the picture has been too large for the screen - some info is off screen. It's bugged me but not enough to pay for someone to come out here and adjust it if even possible. I have a little burn in on the sides from horizontal vertical bars.

My main issues is this. Occasionally, when a bright white screen or a bright flash occurred the top of the picture will "squish". If the screen stayed on long enough the picture would "reset" - go black and then come back on as if there was some sort of protection kicking in. This has been going on for a long time but it too was a minor annoyance - until recently.

My Momitsu V880N stopped reading disks - I suspect it's either new media or new protection but that's irrelevant. I bought a new Blu-ray and watched the new Star Trek movie and the set "reset" 20 or 30 times. I was yelling at it to go ahead and die so I could buy another one.

I was wondering if the set was salvageable, economically speaking and what the problem might be. I'm pretty good with a screwdriver :whistling: and am not afraid of getting into the set if I need to remove something to send out for repair.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a regulation problem or loss of sync. I would be looking at capacitors in the various power supplies as a guess. Unless you have a scope and an ESR meter, this could be beyond a DIY project.
I got a repair service out here for $75 and they told me they could take it back to the shop and get it working for $350ish - depending - taking 3-5 business days. We have to decide if it's worth ~$500 to get it back. Sadly, it works fine for satellite. I think we're going to try a few more movies.

Thanks for the reply.
