    My TV has started playing with a wavy distortion. The distortion
    almost looks like a magnetic interference. It has this problem with
    everything unplugged. I have moved the set to different locations and
    different outlets, letting it sit for 5-10 minutes before using. When
    I turn down the contrast to about 20/100 and brightness to about
    30/100 the distortion clears up. I have unplugged for 5-10 minutes and
    it has not helped. I have left unplugged over night and no help. Any
    ideas on what this problem might be?

    You will have to take the set in for service. The fault would most
    likely be in the
    power supply or in the horizontal scan section.

    Most of the time there are various electrolytic capacitors that can go
    in the mentioned areas that will cause this type of fault. These
    capacitors can be
    tested using an ESR meter.

    There are serious safety issues when servicing TV sets. It is best for
    you to take
    the TV in for an estimate. From this, you can make an intelligent
    decision if the
    TV is worth to service it.
