1) I have a Sony KV-32FS13 that has a green tint in the picture. Does any oneknow how to access the service menu for this model? I tried other adjustments and I can't get rid of the annoying green...


Code 5 is "AKB error". AKB, or auto kine bias, is a cicuit that monitors the three color guns of the picture tube (red, green and blue) and tries to adjust them for proper color balance. If it can't, the picture is blanked (usually) and the timer/standby light blinks 5 times. When the color drives aren't balanced, you see a color tint in the picture like you're describing.

There might be a problem in the AKB circuit, or the picture tube may just be old enough that the AKB circuit has run out of adjustment range. If the tube is at fault, you should consider replacing the set. A new tube will cost nearly as much as a new 32-inch LCD TV, and you'll need to pay someone to install it and set it up. There are special tools required to perform the convergence which gets the color guns aligned with the face of the tube so they hit the right colors.

If you'd like to try tinkering with the service menu adjustments, this site explains how to access the menu and gives a list of settings.

Hi, I have bought an used Mistubishi CS-35405 TV a month back. The picture came in color for 1 week and after that the picture is coming in black and white. However the controls text like volume, menu and...


Hello Mr Kumar
According to you, there was colour displaying on your TV, and it has gone for now. It is now displaying picture in pure black/white also. Since black/white, picture is Ok, there is no problem to your picture tube. It now doesn't get chroma signals. That is the problem.
There are many reasons for this fault. The first one is related to Its RF stage, that is Video IF and Tuner stage. Since picture is correct in bl/wh, tuner has no problem. Your TV has PIP functions also. You just do this one first. Tune to a station with manual tuning, and advance the tuning process till the station goes out, and try to see, at any point during this process, you gets colour or not. If you get colour in this way, your TVs tuner has some problem. Before doing this keep the antenna corectly. If antenna is not in correct position this type of fault will occur. If these two won't help, the problem may be to its Chroma IC. If so this Ic should be replaced. You just do these things first and inform me about the progress through Fixya. I've its schematic diagram and can give you the number of Ics used in different stages. But I can do it only through Fixya. I can't send it to you diretly, since it is against our terms and conditions. Since the TV is a used one we don't know its present condition also.OK.

I have a 60" projection tv philips magnavox model #9P6040 C104 PTV843. The color looks bad, the picture looks orange and red. What do I need to fix it and how much will it be.


You have one of two problems based on your description.

1.) Go to a channel that is in black and white and turn the color on the set all the way off.

Examine the screen and picture from several feet back----if the picture is mostly red and looks somewhat yellow in the main part of the screen you have a GLYCOL problem.

These sets have on each picture tube a sealed unit full of Glycol to cool the face of each tube (set has a red, green, blue picture tube)

If you find the yellow/orange look with the color off you most likely have bad Glycol in the blue picture tube---it never happens to the red--bacteria gets into the glycol and eventually there is no picture coming from (in most cases) the blue tube.

Loss of blue will leave you with Red and Green--mix those two and you usually get a orange/red affect.

There is a way to also confirm this with your eyes--it involves getting the back cover off of the set and holding a small mirror (with the set turned on--you have to be careful not to touch anything)

If you look in each lens you should see a fine picture--one red, one green and one blue--if as I suspect the blue tube is contaminated it will not have a picture and will look like a blue floodlight.

IF THIS IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM--GO into the customer menu and select convergence--what you are looking for is will red and blue adjust or not--are they skewed and will not move.

If this is the case you have a convergence problem--I can tell you what is involved to fix in either case.

Let me know what you find--I am here to help people.

No picture, sound ok


Rca has been known to have bad solder joints in the deflection circuits. Usually around the flyback and transformers.. check it over real good. Just be careful as you can still get shocked after the powers removed the capacitors and picture tube will hold a charge in them.

Picture is blurry, but perfect sound


Sounds like a ground leg on the distribution block has loosened up and is not properly grounding the screen drive. worst-case scenario is that ione of the tubes (3 picture tubes) has started to short out and is causing the blur.

Picture cut off


No adjustment needed on these LCD projection. Your problem is in your setup menu. Your default is now is set ZOOM. That is why the bottom of the picture is cutting off. Go to Menu, setup and screen size or something close to that.
