Re: Color bue is off

Your convergence IC's are bad, possibly more parts, there is a convergence board that has most of the parts that fail, there was no power spike that did this, it is a common problem on CRT Projection TVs, especially HD Sets.

Hello, My main color were out of alignment, as per instruction on manual. I pressed the button for digital array and proceded to align the blue color, then I proceded to align the red color but I could...

The red convergence IC has failed. There are I believe 3 total convergence IC in your tv. The prefix for all three is STK392-xxx. If you can solder you can try and replace yourself otherwise you need a tv tech. With Hitachi's sometimes some critical resistors will change value as well and have to be replaced with exact equivalents. Sorry wish it was an easy solution..

What is the difference between a color wheel and a color conversion kit on a Samsung HLP4663wx

HLP4663WX is a DLP which has a color wheel. The DLPs dont have convergence circuits since there is only one light source. Projections with three CRTs have convergence which is the alignment of all three CRTs ( Picture Tubes)

I own a toshiba 62hmx85 tv and had a frequent humming sound coming from the tv, technicians told me over the phone that it could be the color wheel going, soon after that the tv stopped working and all i...

The color wheel on this set is not available. First thing I would do is replace the lamp. MCM electronics has a Philips for $99.00. The hum could have been the lamp fan which is common on these sets. There is a kit from Hitachi the includes some rubber dampers. What I commonly see on these sets is when the lighr engine is going bad(this is where the color wheel is) the color gets a green,bue or yellow tint and trhe picture may get dim. its rare that the color wheel stops working on this model. Call adifferent tech for sevice. Anyone with experience on these sets will know whats up.

Not real colors. maybe no green color

Projection TVs display using three separate color tubes red, green, blue. The less likely scenario is the tubes being out of alignment. Most likely scenario: the green tube is leaking/failing.

Unfortunately, there are many complaints regarding a color tube giving out on these types of TVs.

You should be able to search the internet for instructions on replacing the color tubes.

Toshiba TP50G50 Theaterview picture is double with red color only

Your alignment is off. Go to the set up menu then convergence. hit right and you will be in the convergence menu. select the color that is not in alignment. The green line does not move. if blue and green are lined up the line will be cyan. if red and green are lined up the line will be yellow. when all three are lined up the color will be light. Best of luck!

All color guns out of alignment

Needs convergence amps replaced. Sometimes resistors burn and need to be replaced. This repair requires soldering/desoldering equip. and a trained eye, but usually can be done for 175.00-325.00 at a reputable service center. Good luck, Russmann.
