Question about Sanyo DS27800 27" TV

1 Answer

Color on screen is not uniform

Bought this TV used on a hope it might be easy to fix (Limited Funds)
The color works, but from the bottom of the center screen to the top and right, is an area that does not have color. When people are on in this area, they look light purple. If I switch to a Video output, it is a blue screen with this affected area being green. Definition is fine, and so is the screen, just weird color through this area. I have adjusted color controls, but am unable to correct it. Other than this problem, the set works fine. Please tell me that there is still hope. Thanks.

Sony 40xbr800 blurred picture

Convergence is almost impossible to adjust on this model--it is all manual. If you have a purity issue---bloches or screen not uniform color you may have a damaged shadow mask in the crt.

There is very limited convergence adjustment in this model.

Has set be moved or shipped recently?

I have a Mitsubishi CS 3515R 35" Tube TV. The screen has narrowed at the top and the bottom so only about 2/3 of the horizontal screen has picture. There are black areas at the top and bottom....

There are two issues, the first is a vertical deflection problem, "needs a few parts+an ic" the second problem is intermittent color, "crystal and color processor ic" If the set is close to 10 years old then your money is better spent on a new tv.

When i turn on my tv, the screen has like rainbow color all over it. i found out if you hold a magnet up to the screen, the color moves if you move the magnet. no picture of anything,,just color i...

To fix this, you need to do something called degaussing. You should keep magnets away from the screen in the future, because they cause this problem.
The first thing to try is to turn it on and off, making sure that all magnets and speakers (which have magnets in them) are kept far away from it. This will activate the monitor's auto-degausser if it has one. If this does not help, this guide: gives a couple solutions, including using a soldering gun (not a soldering iron), illustrated in the video below:
With a powerdrill:

Or investing about 60 bucks in a degaussing coil like this which is a guaranteed fix:
One other trick that might work is to take an old CRT monitor ("fat-screen" rather than "flat-screen"), hold it up to the tv screen to screen, and turn it on and off to have the monitor use its own degausser. The monitor may have a button to activate degaussing, or it may be in the menu you can bring up with the buttons on the bottom of the screen.
If you don't want to deal with any of this, a tv repair shop will degauss your tv for you quickly.

The color on my Toshiba 27A41 is not uniform and varies from the left (purple tint) to the right (green tint) with red tint in the center. Otherwise the picture is very good. How do I adjust the color so...

It may be that the degaussing circuit isn't working. This simple device should demagnetize the CRT each time the set is turned on. The circuit consists of a Varistor and the coil surrounding the front edge of the picture tube. The Varistor allows a surge of quickly declining current to flow through the coil to remove any buildup of magnetism that can cause the color problem you currently have. Varistors can fail since they have very low resistance cold and very high once warmed so the momentary power that they dissipate is fairly high and may cause them to fail over time.
You can roughly check the operation of the degausser by using a weak magnet near the TV screen to see the effect it has then turn the set off for 1/2- 1 hour, turn it back on to see if the error you caused with the magnet is removed. Don't use a strong magnet as that influence can take months to remove.

Samsung txh1970 tv screen has green tint

I encountered the same problem with a color computer monitor several years ago. Everything went green. The repair techies told me that's a sign that the power supply is going bad. You will not be able to adjust the color. You will have to either fix it or replace it. Hope this isn't a common problem with this model Samsung TV.

I dropped my tv

If it dropped it could be a major problem or a simple fix?? The first thing you wanna do is unplug the set overnight . Plug back in cold in the am and turn on the set. Did the spot go away?? Did it get less visable?? No? Then the shadow mask inside the picture tube got bent when it dropped and the only way to fix this is to replace the picture tube. Sorry man Good Luck
