    I HAD the same problem, then I replaced the coolant just like the manual said, but now the screen is clear but it's also just black with a red, blue, and green stripe across it. No picture, no sound, can't access menu, etc.

    Did I do something wrong?

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. 

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Picture fuzzy and blurry when switch on and as set gets warm picture quality returns


This being a rear projection says that the color guns are going out. It will be a single gun or three individual ones. You will have to take the back off to find a part number and what type of color gun or guns you have.

Fuzzy picturethe


If the colors appear to be aligned and the only isue is focus, than you can adjust the focus on the flyback transformer. Carefully remove the rear cover and locate the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top). There should be 2 controls/adjustment points on it. One is for screen and the other for focus. Try adjusting the focus using a mirror to see the front of the set. You should adjust the control back and forth a ferw times to "loosen" it up a bit before settling down to the focus point.

Update this with the results.

Fuzzy Picture


Fuzzy is a funny word. I never use it to describe a picture problem. That because fuzzy can go too many different ways. There is snowy fuzzy, blurry fuzzy, grainy fuzzy, and demodulated fuzzy. If the set goes out of focus intermittently that has something to do with the focus ciruitry. If it goes grainy that is a front end problem, usually tuner related. The other types of fuzzy are generally associated with problems in video processing some where. So, which is it?

Oh, and BTW that unit has three small picture tubes in it, one red, one blue, and one green. It doesn't have a 'bulb'.

Picture is fuzzy and color seems faded




Sounds like your coolant in the tubes need to be repalced. This is a common problem as the set gets older. Check with www.TvRepairKits.com for the supplies and instruction guide.

Color not correct picture fuzzy


I have spoken with support they told me a problem like this is usually a "color wheel". You are looking at $500 plus for repairs. Good Luck!
