Re: Colors are off

Before taking the set to the dump, try to unplug overnight, not just a breif time. If that doesnt help you are going to need to have it serviced or replacement is most likly the outcome ,because of the proice its going to cost.

How to connect dvd red white cables

several types of connections possible:

A unit with yellow, red and white is yellow is video, red and white are left and right audio.

This is called COMPOSITE as all video/color are on yellow and red and white only for sound or audio.

If the DVD has RED,GREEN, and BLUE the hookup must be to similar connections on the set---this is called COMPONENT and green carries the video and red and blue the information for those colors.

Let me know if issues or questions as I am here to help you

Need help hooking up the tv to the vcr

There should be a set of cords with yellow, white, and red AV jacks on both ends, or a set of blue, green, and red cords for HD. You only need to use one set. On the VCR side, plug the jacks into the terminals that correspond with their colors. Make sure that you plug them into the terminal set marked "Output," not the set marked "Input." On the TV side, plug each into their corresponding colors in one of the sets marked "Input." To access your VCR, turn on both systems and press your "input" button, either on your remote or your TV, until you see the VCR on the screen. The input number should match the one next to where you plugged the cords into the TV.

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.

The t/v screen suddenly turned green. the picture is clear but green/no color

Good day! the problem you have posted indicates that the 2 color cathode of your tv is not functioning, it's either that the driver transistor of the red and blue cathode is defective or the crt socket. or maybe the solder point in the crt board needs resoldering. check for some loose connections.

Colors are overlapping

Is it bowed top and bottow? One fix and a common problem with this set is there is a fuse right next to the flyback the seems to open because of broken solder joints. There is 3 off them and the middle one seems to blow all the time. Check the fuse with a meter and see if its open. If it is, follow the next set of directions.

To fix this, you will need to resolder the flyback and several other components. Then jump the fuse or replace it. I have personally done both but I don't like to jump the fuse because it defeats its purpose as a fuse.

You will need a T-20 and a T-10 screw driver to take the back off. The flyback with be on the left hand side of the set with a red wire coming off the top of it and the fuses will be located an inch or so to the right of the flyback. If you have schematics, sorry I don't know the designations of the components. Another problem, I have seen is on the right hand side of the set. There is a ribbon cable about 2 inches wide. The topside board(Convergence board). That connector is also known to go bad as well. Replace the connector.
