The screen is green and the tint option in the menu cannot be adjusted.


This symptom usually indicates CRT failure. Projection TV's, especially older types use 3 CRT "guns" to project the image on the screen. One is Cyan or Red, one is Green and one is Blue. If the Red and Blue become weak or do not project, the Green gun overpowers the output of the other two. These three "guns" are aligned exactly on top of each other so when all three are correctly functioning, the correct colors are projected on the screen.

Your Green CRT is getting Mold in the glycol. This will get worse. You need to drain the glycol out of the crt and clean, then apply new glycol to the crt. You should do the blue one also, because it will go next. The Red can can be left alone.

I have a Mitsubishi, probably since 2001. About 18 mos ago the problem began suddenly with no audio and no video. In checking I have been told it might be a convergence fix, however I get the code 2-4


2,4 is vertical problem.

The set will blank the 3 picture tubes but usually you will still have sound.

Another issue with these sets is GLYCOL which is a coolant much like anti-freeze but more concentrated and toxic that cools each of the tubes screens.

These sets had problems with it leaking from any of the 3 tubes down onto the boards---With speaker grill pulled off the front and the inspection plate behind it removed you from the front will see 3 large circuit boards.

The necks of the tubes are hanging down and the vertical circuit is on the middle board near the very front.

Some models if you look up the neck of the tubes will have a plastic tray to catch any Glycol--others do not-----those can get Glycol onto the boards.

Carefully look for any signs of liquid--does not need to be much and if you see signs DO NOT TOUCH IT WITH YOUR HANDS as it will be absorbed into your body and is very Toxic.

This is the reason many landfills will not accept this type of set.

The Glycol is a clear liquid not unlike mineral oil in appearance--anything it gets on gets shorted as it is conductive.

Again, looking from front (middle board a tan color and board to right is green---) the green board to right is signal and process board--if glycol there it will look tarnished where connections are or even a white residue on the board.

If no Glycol the vertical circuit is causing this.

If Glycol on the vertical circuit it can be removed with water and dried--then the real issue is what to do about the leak.

I have answers for that but you need to see if GLYCOL is your problem.

YOU HAVE TO LOOK VERY CAREFULLY FOR THE GLYCOL as it is easy even for someone like me who has seen hundreds of these sets with leaks to see sometimes.

Coolant is leaking onto circuit board and shorting it out


Glycol leaks can be a problem. How bad is the leak is it dripping on the boards. This stuff that s leaking is called glycol conductive anc corrosive. keep the set upluged. The seals in the crts have failed. they would have to be replaced. Very involed repair. it involves removing the tube and removing the glycol removing the seal cleaning the tube replaceing the seal refilling the tube putting the tube back in and aligning. at the shop such a repair is about 2 to three hours..if THE GLYCOL has leaked on the board then the board could have been damaged. AT this point you have to ask if it is worth it. always get a profesional to do this type of repair. i dont say this often but this is not a fix it yourself

Fuzzy Blue...?


these set are bad about the blue tube messing up.. what happens is the convergence board witch generates alot of heat cooks the blue glycol.... basically growing algea in the blue tube... it is possible to remove the tube.. and remove glycol and clean the tube then replace and adjust..i have done a few here at the shop

Jvc rear projection problem


the problem you are having is the convergance amplifiers have failed there may be some resistors and fuses blown also.
now, this can be caused by coolant leaking from the guns shorting out the board.you may investigate this yourself by unplugging the set open the back and check for fluid leaks around and under the CRTs and on the main board. if it is present don't touch this fluid (eytholene glycol sorta the same stuff you use in your car coolant). if it is there then yes you are looking at a high cost of repair, but if not your looking around $350.00 or so.

Fluid Mold


yes it more than likely is related to the spill.
this model is famous for fluid leaks. each projector1.gif tube has a reservoir on the front of it with a fluid in it. this keeps the face of the tube cool.
this depends on how bad the damage is in the tv. in most cases we can reseal the tube and clean up the fluid 400-600.
Once you
take the tube out you will see where it leaked. The problem is that the
frame on the CRT that the heavy screws with springs are mounted on (that
hold the lens coupled to the CRT) is weak and they can bend. We have seen
several that have leaked after the customer moved the set. You can only
tighten them down so much because the frame bends. It is just stamped metal
and not welded at the corners to support the bend.

We remove the CRT, clean it all up, add a very small amount of RTV sealer to
the gasket, reassemble, let the RTV cure thoroughly and refill with coolant.
The extra sealer should prevent future leaks. Haven't had a recall yet.
Mits says replace the CRT...too costly.

You msut check the yokes carefully as well. If any coolant gets into them
you can end up with shorts there and a mess.

Clean the boards carefully and repair any corrosion damage. The coolant is
ethylene glycol and glycerine which is water soluable.

Sounds like your green tube is low or is bad

TV won't come on!


Most likely, this is a problem with the convergence board. The convergence amps (STK392-040 x 2)are internally shorted. These can be replaced or the whole convergence board can be replaced. It's cheaper to replace the amps, but more convienent to replace the board (especially for the less electronically inclined!! :) Also, this could be from a leaking CRT. In CRT projection televisions, the red, green, and blue tube are filled with coolent (glycol). These 42" models are very bad about the tubes leaking (Akai and Samsung models)and are infamous for destroying the CRT driver board connected to the bottom of each tube. When this happens, the protection circuit kicks in and will not let the television start up. *PLEASE, FOR YOUR OWN SAKE, DO NOT FOLLOW THESE NEXT STEPS IF YOU HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING OF ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT!!!! There are four screws and three snap clips that hold the bottom on. UNPLUG THE TELEVISION, remove the screws and pull bottom outward to remove. The bottoms of the three tubes should be visible. DON'T TOUCH THEM!! Now look under each tube. If one is leaking, there will be a wet spot (or sometimes a puddle!) underneath the tube. This will have to be serviced by a TV tech. Hope this helps...
