    by the way the auto converg. does not solve this problem.

  • luked1964 Dec 08, 2008

    the corners are still difficult to read. they look as though the items i want to read are double vision. in the hud of my game there is a map that has letters and pictures the same as a legend in a map, but there is a obvious solid visual with a overlapping opaque visual that is just low and leff, but still connected to the solid visual thus making it difficult to read. is focus the issue?! again the auto config did not solve problem.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, if your TV unit is a HD52W59, it is an RCA 52" Widescreen Projection HDTV. If yes, there should be a focus/screen control assy at the FBT in the main board. Since adjustment would have to be performed on a live set and the FBT is the source of the high voltage, might it be to your advantage to seek the assistance of an experienced TV tech.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Sounds like you have one or more bad LCD panels in the projector. replacement of the panels will fix the problem, but the cost of the panels is around 500.00 each; there are three panels. ------------------------ Pls Service the LCD Panels of the Projector, Also check the Fly-Eye lens, just next to Lamp unit. This will solve your problem. if it's not then the only solution is Replacement of LCD Panels, But Must check or replace the external RGB Cable first befor doing all this exercise.

    Turn off the auto convergience and use the advanced menu options to align the red and blue with the grid. Once you are in convergence menu, hit the audio button, this will give you the grid. Start at the center of the screen and work in a clockwise pattern going out one gridline at a time. then switch from red to blue by hitting the video button. Follw the same procedure. Don't do this until the tv has been on for at least a half hour as it needs to be at oprating temp. If it's still wrong then you need to get into the service menu, which I'm still trying to find out how to do.

My epson projector center is blurry


Hello, if it's mounted you may have never adjusted the "focus" on it before. Just slowly turn the end grey colored lens one way or the other with a stationary picture such as the menu on the screen, adjust it to where the lettering is the sharpest.....tks

What is the liquid inside the projector lenses?


Some lenses use an oil-like coolant or focusing aid.
Your lenses are called Intelifocus.

Z3 projector.3 years old. Blue tinge in one corner of projected picture. Grainy picture on dark scenes.


There may be some problem with your picture tube else try this that looks like retrace lines. Anyway, you should try to adjust screen pot not focus pot. Make sure you are turning blue screen pot (there are 3 focus pots and 3 screen pots) and do it slowly. If you turn it too much, it will affect your grayscale

Convergence problem


We need a better description of what you mean by shadowing. However I am assuming: 1. You mean it ''bleeds'' off to the right when you have something with a hard red/blue drive. 2. When you turn the contrast and color down a bit it gets better. unfortunatly I cannot tell you how to fix convergence, but I can think of some other possibilities. In this case the red/blue emmision of the crt is dying off and going into saturation when driven hard. To fix, replace with a new picture tube/crt. In some cases you can get a little more life out of that tube (with a watchable picture) by having the screen, focus, cathode bias, and drives slightly readjusted. It will take someone with experience in doing these adjustments on a weak tube to get it looking as good as possible. Given the construction of the cathodes (guns) in that crt, only a very low level crt reactivate should be tried on it. The hard rejuv most crt testers give is highly likley to completely destroy the cathode on that crt.
