    basically my picture seems as though maybe some of the colors are either not working or to dim.when watching a movie that has a lot of dark sens,you just can not make it out enough to get the correct image.i compared watching a movie called the cave an on my PhillipsMagnavox i though there where a lot of sens that where suppose to be very dark,but not i watch the same movie on another set and it looked to be a completely different movie.i hope i have given a description well enough to help you diagnose my T.V.correctly.i have had this T.V. for about 7 years and it has been the best i have ever owned.if i can get the color right i will use it until it just won't work anymore.i can't imagine any of the new model's bringing me more pleasure than i get from this one.

Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • 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.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directiScreen is blurry alot of orange and green halow. - 2c07611.pngnvergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

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.

Of the 3 wires that feed into the headlight bulbs on my 2000 F350, I need to know which is positive and which is ground

The BLACK wires are ground. The LIGHT GREEN/BLACK wires are your high beam circuits. Then the low beam circuits are DARK GREEN/ORANGE on the right side and DARK BLUE/WHITE on the left side.

Fuji ax 280 out of focus and blurry on startup switch off and back on again its fine any help please.


Just tap on the sides of camera when you switch on it . There is definitely a loose contact between the screen and circuit board inside it . You confirm it to check that you are facing this problem due to bad connector . If you still face blurry on startup then it is due to faulty CCD sensor . You need to replce it ,but it will cost you alot in repairing it .

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any further queries.

Rca projection tv is blurry

Hi, you need a tv tech, G2 focus block and pincushion circuit are what your describing, these are both related to the high voltage circuit but are 2 different circuits, definitely not a layperson repair, do yourself a favor and call a tech on this one, good luck, video-tek
