Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


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,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

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

*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

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Does this problem happen all the time ? What I mean is , if your watching the local news thru your cable/sat box does ot happen, or just when using aux imput. Either way, double image, or shadowing, is usually caused by a defective wire. Troubleshoot each unit, unplug everything and start from scratch.

Projection Tv Problem


The problem you are seeing is a convergence problem. This is a common problem and is fixed either by resoldering bad connections on the convergence ICs or replacing the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heatsink and are marked STKxxx. Try resoldering the pins on these ICs first.

Unplug the TV from the ac wall outlet for about 4 minutes then plug it back in and turn it on. If it still has a double image then tell me if it's affecting the menu screen from the TV (not the cable menu). And is the double image in red and blue?

Projection Tv Problem


some of these tvs have internal adjustments for everything including alignment which fixes the double image problem. if you remove the cover you will find a lot of little adjustment dials. you may find that they have symbols that show what the adjustment is for. if you want more info. email me at sb1216us@yahoo.com
