Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • 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.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Having a big yellow spot background in the middle of the picture.


Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

Blurry picture


Just a shot in the dark but the first thing i do when i get a blurry rptv in my shop is clean the mirror. Dust can accumulate and create a blurred image. You must be careful however as some of the mirrors are Front Surface mirrors and require special cleaning solutions/techniques. If thats the case using a damp cloth could ruin the mirror. I hope this was helpful.

Blurry picture


You need to clean the projector lens on the optical engine using a soft cotton or, better yet, a chamois cloth. Also clean the mirror mounted inside the rear cabinet and also the front and rear of the screen itself.
If picture is still blurred then your the optical engine is most probably defective.

Picture is blurry, but perfect sound


Sounds like a ground leg on the distribution block has loosened up and is not properly grounding the screen drive. worst-case scenario is that ione of the tubes (3 picture tubes) has started to short out and is causing the blur.
