If the colors are mis-aligned or letters are out of focus, you may need to repair. For mis-alignment you can push the flash-focus button on the front to autoconverge the colors. Replacing the CRTs would cost a fortune. If the picture has just degraded in brightness and clarity, you cold clean it out. You can safely clean the mirror and lenses, it can greatly increase your picture if its dirty. If you unplug your tv you can safely remove the back and gain access to the lenses. All it takes is a philips screwdriver. After you remove the back, you can remove the light barrier between the upper and lower half to free up some room. Take a dry scratch-free cloth and wipe the dust from the lenses. If they're grimy, use a little lens cleaner (liquids used sparingly here, electronics don't like liquids, be careful) You can look up into the top and see if the mirror is dirty. A flashlight shined on it will illuminate the dust/dirt if its there. If you don't smoke you likely won't need to clean the mirror, but it may need it. Use windex or similar for tough grime.. I can usually reach up to get the whole mirror but I've heard of using a swiffer mop to reach the top. Removing the screen is difficult but possible if needed to get inside. Don't touch the back of the screen but lightly with a rag to get cobwebs, etc.

The tv does not turn on. I was originally thinking it was the picture tube or lamp. It was working fine the other day and it just didnt come on when I tried turning it on today. Please help me. Thanks, Jim


The lamp on this unit is fairly easy to remove. Just a screw on the lamp door and a screw on the lamp. Pull it out and inspect it. If you don't know what to look for, please have a look at my Tips & Tricks. I have a tutorial published on Projection Lamps. I hope this was of some assistance, best wishes.

Hello, please check how many times the red light flashes. If it is 3 times this means that the lamp cover is not fastened securely. If the red light flashes 5 times this means that the lamp driver is defect. If you need more help please advice
