Question about Zenith IQC50H95W 50" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

IQC50H94W All three guns are lit and produce an image on the screen. In setup the red can be merged onto the blue to create purple. The green is curvy-plumb (vertical) Moving the gun magnets have no effect. Someone in another blog mentioned convergence ICs. Is this a probability?

Re: IQC50H94W

Was the wvay color present before you did anything? Low voltage from the HV tranformer (flyback) an cause this type of behavior. The crosshair for the convergence set-up should be white when they are all lined-up. The varistor pack for the three tubes needs to be recqalibrated for paper white to achieve this. You should NEVER move the tube alighnment magnets on the neck of the tube unless you replaced the tube itself. The coil on the back can be moved left to right the account for bad cross alighment. Bow and Pin must be done on the convergence board. Slideing the coil away from the front of the tube will blur the image. A convergence board is probably not the root solution for an aging set with daily use. Zenith power supplies relatively last 5 to 7 years at best.

Re: IQC50H94W

The convergence IC's should be the first suspect in any convergence issue. Hopefully you can place the magnets back where they were or you will have that alignment to deal with first.

The picture screen is green and red.

It sounds like one of the three color guns has failed and based on the fact that you have red and green that would leave the blue gun as the culprit.

The screen is green and the tint option in the menu cannot be adjusted.

This symptom usually indicates CRT failure. Projection TV's, especially older types use 3 CRT "guns" to project the image on the screen. One is Cyan or Red, one is Green and one is Blue. If the Red and Blue become weak or do not project, the Green gun overpowers the output of the other two. These three "guns" are aligned exactly on top of each other so when all three are correctly functioning, the correct colors are projected on the screen.

G2 gun not working on ps2 slim.

Must be a CRT projection TV you are speaking of? Usually you can turn the G2 up to where you just see the glow of the tube on the face of the screen. Then back it down to where you just see it disappear. Due this for all three colors Blue, Green and Red. If you see more of one color in the dark images, then back that G2 down for that specific color.

Remove purple haze around edges

The set needs to be focussed and reconverged. The red and blue images combined make a magenta/purple image. Adding green makes it white. Depending on the type of TV, if it's a CRT projection TV then there's an electronic focus control for each of the three tubes as well as the mechanical adjustment of the optical lenses. Given the description, then I'd have a look at the electronic focus first. A sudden shift in focus suggests that something in that circuit has given out. This would cause the red and blue images to go soft enough to create a halo around objects on screen.

My screen went out but i can still hear sound is my picture tube out ? its a 04 65" 1080 series

Your set doesn't have a tube, per se, it has three CRT "guns" in Red, Green and Blue tjat converge the colors on the screen to create the image. It is very odd for them to all go at once which means it's probably a much bigger problem that will not be cost-effective to fix. Better off investing in a more contemporary set.

My samsung hcn4226wxixaa screen is yellow i do not know what happened any suggestions???

one or two of your color guns have gone bad, or the circut that drives the has. There are three guns, red, green and blue. you need all three to produce all the colors, including white and black. in most cases this is not a cost effective repair, unless you have an extended warranty. if it is a sears device, or you bought it from them, they will sell you a warranty to for 200 dollars and then you can get it fixed. you might want to consider getting a new tv

My JVC AV-56WP74 is showing green and purple waves at the top of the screen what is defective?

Common problems with the chassis used in this model for complaints such as this are caused by damage in the convergence circuitry (since there are three separate picture tubes, each mounted in a physical location different from the others, the light each tube "throws" on the screen falls in a different physical location on the screen; the electronics of the convergence circutry force the red & blue light information to "converge" on the image produced by the green tube, which being physically located in the center of the other two is the "master" image), usually associated with the IC's used as amplifiers for the convergence circuits (this model uses STK392-110's) and with the high-wattage, low ohmage resistors used as biasing components for these amps

I have an rca model hd52w67 tv and there is a problem with the picture. the picture has a red and green picture that don't allign by about an inch. I think it is in the picture guns but i cant find a...

Do not align the guns! they are located facing up toward the mirror; they are picture tubes! covered with big glass lenses! heavy!
instead look for a red/green/blue adjustment knob on the set's front; the buttons should say: convergence or, crosshatch push the crosshatch button: once you have three vertical lines crossing three horizontal lines; just merge them using the other R/G/B knobs untill you have one white vertical line and, one horizontal line crossing in the center of the screen.
(you may have to find the controls on the remote using "setup")

Problem with a colour display on Hisense tv

If your picures are all purple it means that the green colour is missing. TV colour is made up by mixing Red, Green & Blue. Removing Green leaving Red & Blue makes purple. Study the green colour circuit for a fault and confirm that the green gun inside the tube is working.
