You may have knocked your guns out of alignment. There should be calibration settings in the main menu. Can you post a picture of the display so we can see what you mean by "distorted."

I have some distored blue color across the screen


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Can't see picture


Is the onscreen menu just as distorted and are the lines across it or behind it? The pop you heard may have been a capacitor and since the TV is still powering on, it's the probably the video controller board that is on it's way out. If the onscreen menu looks fine, you maybe having a problem with the input board only so try a DVD that uses a different input and if it's poor, I would say the TV needs to have the input/output board service. If the OSD is distorted as well then it's definitely the video controller board and service is likely required.

LCD picture distortion.


This is caused by a failure of the main board. The failure causes the refresh rate of the unit to be off creating a trailing or ghost effect. This will require a technician to replace that board though. Hope this help.

Blue streaks across picture


Can you describe in a little more detail what the symptoms are? Are the streaks thin lines or are they large thick swashes of Blue? Is yur video still visible? Sounds like it may be the blue convergence amps or the resistor tied into the amps. is there anyway you can post a picture of your screen distortion?
