A:

Televisions are much more complicated today. I attached two links that may provide information to help while you wait for the expert. One is a similar question and the other the owner's manual.

A:

If the auto focus does not fix the convergence issue then the problem is typically the convergence circuit itself that needs to be repaired. This repair would require soldering equipment and skills to remove components and put new ones in.

Q:

What are the optimal settings for my digital camera?

A:

The optimal setting to take pictures depends on the lighting condition, the distance of the subject, and the amount of movement involved. I recommend using the Auto setting of your camera to let it determine the settings for you.

There should be a sliding switch that you can set to auto. In this mode all you need to do is point and shoot. One thing that I notice people have a hard time with is giving the camera time to auto focus. Once you decide what you will be taking a picture of and have zoomed in where you like, you need to press the shutter button halfway down until the green AF boxes appear on the preview screen. If you do not do this the subject will likely not be in focus and will look blurry.

Another suggestion I have is learning to hold the camera still through the process of a halfway shutter press to focus, then full to take the picture. If you can hold the camera very steady, you can start to turn the flash off. The camera should compensate with a longer exposure to the picture while will give the photo a more natural look. You need to be careful though because when you increase exposure you gain the risk of blurring the picture with even a small amount of movement.

The smallish blurred white circles on the pictures could be either a lens flare or a reflection cause by the flash. A lens flare is usually cause by a bright light source in the frame or just outside of it that gets reflected within the lens assembly. The flash is an extremely bright source of light that can be reflected off small things that usually go unnoticed. Taking a picture in the rain with the flash can sometimes create a reflection since the camera is trying to take a picture the moment the flash is up.

There are many different modes other than auto. I recommend you use your owner's manual to learn more about the settings and when it recommends using them. These modes are prepackaged settings of film speed, shutter speed, and exposure. If you no longer have your owner's manual you can download it at Canon's website here .

Q:

How much would sears charge to change the convergence IC modules?

A:

A service tech needs to go out and see what needs to be changed out and then give you a quote based on the labor. Sometimes there’s no fuses open and you pop it in and everything looks great with little work. Other times you have to spend hours realigning or chasing another problem that gives that same symptom. I agree with what you've been told, the most likely scenario is that you just need the IC's and maybe a couple of fuses. The average price I've seen for this job is around the 300 to 400 dollar ballpark since most of the times there’s little else to do. The tech will still come out to your home first to troubleshoot it before taking parts. You can set up service here .
