Re: conversion problem

Has it been moved latley? is there any auto align mode? i know the lenses can bounce inside there during a move and it can throw off the focus. If there is no kind of auto align it may need serviced. Usualy they have to come out and realign it using special tools. The tools display a cross on the screen in each color and they adjust the throw of the guns that refocus all the colors to the center till it becomes one solid color. The panel drops down from the fron and you adjust the pots with a plastic tool that realigns the guns. There may be a mode in the settings to display the image you use for the alignment. This is a common thing and i think they recomend it be setup at the home and not moved after its setup.

I have a samsung 47 inch rear projection w/self focus there is a continuos blue shadow around images is there a quick fix

The blue is caused by the RGB gun alignment. Green is a fixed gun and Red and Blue are adjustable. In my Mitsubishi, the guns are motorized and can initially be adjusted (course) with the remote. There are more detailed adjustments that can be made if you purchase the service manual. I paid approx $19.00 on line 3 years ago and it is a complete manual. Unfortunetly I don't remember the site. To do a complete alignment, there are steps to take: starting with entering a code using the remote to enter the setup. To make a long story short, I had my tv aligned 3 or 4 times over 5 years under the extended warranty. After watching the tech, who was good, but under time constraints, it was clear that most anyone could do it if they could read and follow instructions.

Blue outline around images on tv

Sounds like a convergence problem. I can tell you that the site that Jean posted will not fix this problem and could even make things worse. That site pertains to a specific problem that is common in some Sony sets and should not be used to try to fix any other issue.

Please keep in mind many things can go wrong with TV sets and you should really do a lot of research before attempting any adjustment and or repair. There are high voltages present and they can reside even when the set is unplugged.

Fix my line problem but red LED flashes five times

Hi Guys, Looks like your advise took care of the problem. I adjusted the power knobs for each of the RGB guns on my Sony 51 inch projection TV. The color looks great and I don't seem to have the blinking indicator light bugging me any more. I will be sure to suggest you folks to anyone with these type of technical questions.

Tv duplicate image

your guns are off and need to be adjusted. your 3 guns (red, green and blue) are off and that would explain the funny colors and shadows. Have a tv tech come out and have a look, they can fix it for a reasonable price.

Why does my TV have a red shadow on all the people and words. i've only had it 4 1/2 yrs

It sounds like the red gun is off. Your tv uses three guns(red,green and blue) to make the picture. sometimes one of these guns shifts a little and the colors get messed up and there are shadows because the gun is still trying to make the image, it just doesnt line up. This is a pretty inexpensive problem that can be fixed by most any tv technician for a small fee. If your pretty confident in your electronics know how, google adjusting guns and your tv and that should yield something.
