Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-24FS120 24" TV

1 Answer

Picture fuzzy The picture all of sudden has gone fuzzy. It looks like a newspaper does when the colours aren't aligned. I can see a red and yellow vertical line down the side. It all happened when my 7 year old nephew was playing with the telly..coincidence? Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

    Thanks for the advice, tried doing this but still no joy...the TV was quite dusty...do you think it may have anything to do with dust getting into the back of the TV?

I would suggest to unplug the tv from the wall for about 15 minutes and then plug it back in,and turn it on,this should reset the microprocessor and realign the colors back to normal.let Us know how it goes and if you need more help.

    It will have to be an excessive amount of dust to create any problem specially this type,if your tv has the same age as your nephew it qualifies as a possible bad picture tube,try hittin the side of the set to see if it reacts ,if it does you will be looking for a loose conection,if you are familiar with tv service this information will give a place to check but if you are not too familiar be safe and ask for assistance from a servicer.

I have a samsung lcd tv that powers on has sound but the picture is fuzzy and has no colour . What would be the component that needs replacing for this ??


Hello. Before you start replacing parts, make sure your connections are correct. It sounds like you have connected a composite source to a component input. Composite is three RCA plugs, a yellow for all of the video, and a red and white for audio left and right channels. Component is five RCA cables, green, red and blue for video, and red and white for audio. if composite is connected to a component input, the picture will be black and white with squiggly lines all through it.

Red green blue duble picture


Possible that the alignment of the projection has gone out of alignment. so it must be reset with a alignment and colour setting test pattern.This might require expert help for perfect setting. get estimate.

Just bought a new Series 5 Samsung 40" LED TV and we hooked up the DVD and the picture isn't clear. The midrange colours appear halftone dots like in a newspaper


do you have it hooked up through regular video? yellow cables or do you have a HD connection (HDMI, or composite cable, blue green and red) if not upgrade and you will see an outstanding difference.

there are a few things you might be able to do. First I would try the auto focus or alignment feature of the set. there should be a option in menu to realign the lamps.

Tv out of foucs


These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then: Convergence The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’ images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen. Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the signal format. Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue Centering. When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options: Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen (this is normal). Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the screen, if necessary. Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture. Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture. Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to converge the picture.

Akai PT5499hd that has suddenly lost color alignment


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound
