Question about Quasar VV-2002 20 in. TV/VCR Combo

1 Answer

Picture shadow I have a 52" Quasar TV that has a red shadow on the images shown. I have gone into the SET UP menu, and tried adjusting the "convergence" option with little or no effect. I was told this was the normal manner to fix this problem, but this solution isn't working for me or perhaps I'm missing something here.

Re: Picture shadow

No I am afraid you have the typical convergence problem. if you tried the adjustment, and it did not work, there are two convergence amp IC's that need to be replaced. they are on the printed circuit board, and they stand up mounted to a large metal heatsink. The IC's are black, and have white lettering on them, and statrt with STK. They will need to be unsoldered. If you have the soldering knowhow, this should not be so bad for you to do. But if you do not, play it safe and have a tech come in and replace these convergence amp IC's. Good Luck

All lines of convergence is wrong who I can restart adjusments?

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

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 pics of convergence problems.

Common 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.

Picture WAY messed up!!

Go to menu, and under video or picture, go to advance setting and then go to convergence. This TV should be equipped with and automatic convergence adjustment. Just follow the instruction on you owners manual. If this does not fix it, it means that your convergence chips are shot, and you will need to have a train repairman fix it.

Toshiba MW27FPX dropped it!

See if you can borrow a TV de-magnetizer (degauss) from a tv shop...if that doesn't purify the color, then the shadow mask inside the picture tube is bad = no repair unless CRT is replaced
and that would cost more than a new TV ! ...................T.
