    I have an older Mitsubishi rear projection tv that has had some pincushion
    and convergence issues for some time now but it never really bothered me.
    The convergence only slipped on the edges where the pincushion was off too.

    The new issue is that yesterday while watching tv the screen suddenly went
    red with lighter red wavy diagonal lines. After about 5 seconds of that
    getting brighter and brighter it powered off. Now whenever I turn it on
    that's what it does. After it clicks off you see the red flash a rectangle
    roughly 6" wide by 1.5" high that shrinks into a circle that slowly gets
    bigger and softer. Right before it goes completely black you can see a
    slight green circle in the 2 o'clock position touching the red.
    The only way to get the set to power back up is to unplug and replug. I
    tried the extent of my electronics repair knowledge on it (I hit the wood
    grain a few times with a rubber mallet) and have come up short.

    I assume it's broke pretty bad... I'm just wondering if anyone knows
    specifically how and more importantly, how much$?

    Thanks in advance,
