    Sounds like a convergence problem. It could be that the chips that control the convergence have failed but I really cannot tell with out seeing pictures. I can tell you that the site that Jean posted will not fix this
    problem and could even make things worse. That site pertains to a specific problem that is common in
    some Sony sets and should not be used to try to fix any other issue.







    Please keep in mind many things can go wrong with TV
    sets and you should really do a lot of research before attempting any
    adjustment and or repair. There are high voltages present in some areas and they can
    reside even when the set is unplugged.

    can you test the components inside on the convergence?

Picture on screen shrunk to about half size and color bands go around the picture - red, yellow, green, blue - almost looks like things are in 3D


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix
