Below are two of the most common problems encountered with projection TV sets.

Problem #1 - CONVERGENCE PROBLEM

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets and a fairly simple DIY fix.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on - TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.

This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from TvRepairKits.com

Their kits include a step by step instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around video.

Pic of a set that needs the fluid changed. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.

if the chips were replaced and any of the 5.6 ohm protect resistors around them are bad, the set will not turn on.

The simple way to confirm or deny this is to unsolder both chips and see if set turns on, this will tell you if it is convergence or some other issue

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

This is an old-style tv, one in which the image is produced by 3 small tv tubes and then projected on the screen. Since you have sound it means that the defect is situated in either the video processor and finals or the tubes themselves have either failed due to old age or they aren't powered. To find out which you must open the tv and test it.
Start by removing the back and just look at the tubes: if their necks aren't lit when the tv is on then the tubes aren't powered - you will need to check the contacts on the base of the tubes and reseat all of them (don't forget to pull the plug and wait for 15 minutes before doing that). If the tubes are lit you will need to check the voltages on the electrodes - start with the cathodes. If all the voltages appear to be ok then it's in the video section - find out if the video transistors are powered correctly and operational. If they are then it's the image processor - luckily in this tv it can be replaced , with some effort, individually. You will just need to find and absolute exact replacement.
All of this requires a good electronics experience. If you don't have it then it's time to call a pro.

Your symptoms sound like the CRT fluid has gone bad in the set. There are three CRT’s and each are cooled with Ethylene Glycol that is clear, but can become contaminated, mostly in the blue and green. You can order a kit with full instructions from a web site that I have used.
Try www.tvrepairkits.com. They carry the fluid kit that you are looking for. When you order from them you will get a kit with instructions on how to do the repair, step-by-step.

If you need any further help please reply to this post.
I hope that this helps you with this issue.
Thanks for using Fixya.

This set needs the coolant fluid between the tubes and lenses replaced. This is a very common problem for philips/magnavox projection tv's and should only be performed by a professional so that there will be no leaks. Theis is a complicated repair. Thanks for using fixya.

Are you using component video?
Sounds like a mixed up wire in the back.

Also, double check the source (ie cable box / vcr ) and see if there is a setitng on that you need to adjust.

not worth it, likely been dropped and all the lenses etc are out, or just worn out from a hard life.

I have a philips magnavox and had two problems that I recently fixed using kits from www.TvRepairKits.com. I can't say enough about their kits and help. Without them I would have never been able to fix my TV set myself.

The first problem I had was the TV was looking 3D. After doing some homework I found out that this is a convergence problem. I bought a kit, followed the instructions, and to my amazement fixed it myself.

After building my confidence with the 1st repair I decided to get their CRT fluid kit. This kit fixes the dull video,red video, or bright/halo looking video. If you have a magmavox set that is more than 5 years old your tv has this problem already. It happens on every set. As before I bought the kit, followed the instructions, and now my video looks factory new. Once again I wanted to say thanks to the team at Tv Repair Kits for putting together kits that the average joe can use.
