Re: red color

Torn mine down.....and the cover over the tuner seems to be pushing down on the tuner. removed cover & washer/bolt....and it is fine. i noticed the the tab on the cover is taking the weight of the tv board. the tab was alittle bent. i am thinking of busting off the tab .......not sure if i should put the washer & bolt back on. the bolt seems to fit into the small cover.but when it is off.... the picture is much much better.

Re: red color

No easy fix for a TV. If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. As long as there's no burning smell, and the set is okay even when hot, after running for awhile, it's possibly bad connections on the convergence board. If you have some decent soldering skills and a familiarity with the insides of a TV, you may even save yourself a repair bill by getting some bad solder connections cleaned up. If its not the connections it could be the STK chips, or the board itself. It might also be caused by having the set placed close to another electrical device that causes a magnetic field that overtime messes with the colors on your tv. Its more noticeable sometimes after you take the device away, because the TV learnt to compensate for the effects of that field. If separating the TV from all other devices for a few days(while letting it work from time to time) doesn't affect the red tinge, you could try to degauss it manually. Some shops sell a degaussing wand that you wave around the TV to fix such problems. You can also build one yourself - tape a small samarium cobalt magnet (much stronger than your average magnet) to a pencil, then spin the pencil with your fingers while moving past the monitor. Note that if not done properly this can make things worse. Take care

Tv has red screen and no sound

how are you hooked up? sometimes i get weird colored screens when people use the component cables (red, green, blue, red and white) to hook up but get one in the wrong spot or not in all the way.

uh... if this isn't helpfull try using a different input alltogether. like, if your using video 1 put it in video 2 or if your using hdmi try just using the SD composite (yellow, red and white)

eh, good luck

All lines of convergence is wrong who I can restart adjusments?

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

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.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV 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 images.

Tv shows double vision in blue color. how to fix this problem?

This is a problem with your convergence settings found under your tv's menu. its very easily fixed, you just need to open the setting for convergence and use the arrows on your remote to adjust. inproper convergence can cause either a red or blue haze around almost any object displayed on the tv screen

Tried to hook up hd cables and seems good but no audio tried to hook up but can't get to work

You cannot get AUDIO from Component Video, as it is only VIDEO, you must get another set of Cables RED & WHITE, and connect them from the AV, AUDIO Jacks, OUT on the "Sender" The DVD, Receiver etc, to the AV AUDIO IN on the TV. So you will have 5 Cables connecting BOTH Video & Audio. The Component Video, uses Blue, Green, & Red, these go color to color on the RCA Jacks at BOTH ends PLUS the Red & White Audio, color to color at BOTH ends. .Hope that clears things up.
