Question about Hon Company HONMST60 Tripod Screen, 60"x60", Matte White Screen/Black Trim Projector Screen

Open Question

The screen won't stay up.

The red button that you push has a tab that locks in the holes on the square shaft that extends to hold up the screen.

On the unit I have, the tab is broken off (probably during shipping) and the screen won't stay up.

How can I get a replacement part to put this unit back into service?

Toshiba TV won't turn on


Toshiba? Suspect that if it uses a Lamp for brightness (a model number would help) it may have failed----customer replaceable and if remove look to see it is not shattered inside--2 year, 2000 hour life is normal.

I have a sony rear projection tv kp-46wt500 it has red lines going through the screen and somtimes screen turns red and then the tv shuts off ive been told that the red lamp has gone bad the volume and...


David, you need to take off the front cover (where the speakers and power button are). On the back there are two screws on each side. unscrew those then pull. There are push in clips holding it on. 4, two on top two on bottom. Just pull hard, you won't break the cover, then find a place to set it aside (you may need to disconnect the front AV hook-up, thats simple, just unplug it like a outlet) and then there will be another panel, held in by four more screws take those out. Then you will find a like 3 inch square thing with 6 plastic screw knobs on it. It goes blue green red (could be different for yours, but should be the same, if not, one of the colors is labeled) Ok, no find the red one and turn it probably counter-clockwise. That will reduce the amount of voltage that the color red gets.
Oh, forgot to say, there are two rows of screw knobs, one says "focus" you can leave that one alone. the other says "screen" that is the one you want to change.
And also, when you are turning it. I'm tlaking like 1/8inch or less turn at a time. If not you can fry it and actually burn out the bulb. But I don't think it is burnt out. Just getting too much voltage

SONY PROJECTION TV TROUBLE SHOOTING BLUE SCREEN


This was one of several Sony models that had bad picture tubes--the set uses a red, green, and blue tube.

There is something easy you can try that may help you get some more life from the set.

SONY SCREEN ADJUSTMENT:

Here is what you need to do.

1.) You need to remove the entire plastic piece below the front of the screen. You most likely will find 3 screws on either side in back that you have to remove.

2.) The grill will not come out easy, pull from one side and then when it starts to come loose from the other side(there are several plastic pegs that hold it in.) Then from the bottom pull out( most of these sets have square plastic tabs at the top that tuck in.)

3.) With the grill removed locate the inspection plate behind it (it usually has 6 screws.) You will have to tilt the grill to the left and on its side as several cables are connected to it--they are held in place with trash bag like ties that you can release to get some room.

4.) With the inspection plate removed you will see a fairly small (about 3 inch square) BLACK PLASTIC BLOCK WITH SIX CONTROLS-usually they are marked with whiteout so someone can tell if they have been adjusted.

5.) You need to look very close at the block with a flashlight----usually the top three controls are FOCUS--don't touch those.
The lower three are usually marked Screen and if you look very close you will see b, g, r(blue green red)

6.)Usually the GREEN will be in the middle.

7.) Once you locate the BLUE screen control have the set on and turn it down--if the set is shutting down you may have only a few seconds to try to turn it down---usually to the left with the Screen control.

8.) Best way to do this if the set is on is on a video input clip_image001.gif with nothing connected--you turn the Blue screen down until the set stays on and then very slowly turn it up until you see a slightly Blue screen with or without diagonal trace lines----turn it down slowly until the Blue screen and trace lines just disappear.

Let me know if you get it to work--Like I said if it is shutting down you may have to slowly turn the screen down a few times to get it to stay on.

If it works you may only be buying some time--if the blue tube caused this it may return at some point.

If all this information has helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Tv turns on but after like five minutes the screen turns red


This model had problems with bad picture tubes--it uses three--a red, green, and blue tube.

If one of the tubes is bad it most likely will not be worth repairing as the tubes are only available on a rebuild basis--very expensive.

If this works you may only be buying yourself some time as if the tube is the problem it will come back again--I have seen many where adjusting let the set work for many months or even years.

Display has red tint across entire screen. Could it be the bulb? If so, is that still available? Approximate cost?


two possible solutions----either a problem on the small circuit board that is connected to the RED picture tube OR the red screen control is turned up too high. These sets have a small square block with RED,Green, Blue screen controls(same place also has red, green, blue Focus controls) if you remove the speaker grill you will find an inspection plate made of masionite---the focus/screen block is visable behind it----get a flashlight and look carefully at the block---one row of 3 plastic shafts is Focus(don't touch those) the other 3 are Screens(you should see R, G, B marked) go to a blank video input(one with nothing attached) and turn the RED SCREEN CONTROL JUST SLIGHTLY TO THE LEFT UNTIL the red goes away.

Philips universal remote codes


For the majority of phillips/magnavox universal remotes: Hold code search button down till red light satys on. Press the tv button and the red light should blink and stay lit. With the tv on, push the power button repeatedly until the tv turns off.(dont push the power button again after the tv turns off or it will go to the next code). Push the mute button to save the setting.
