If you can remove the front screen, look down into each CRT tube lens, blue, green & red see which ones are cloudy. The cloudy ones need the fluid changed which is a coolant. Shops charge between $75 to $150 a tube to change.

Cloudy screen


It's possible that you have moisture on the inside of your camera, causing the sensor to fog up. It is also possible that you have fog on your lens as well. I have had cloudy images with my Nikon when it fogged up inside. The best thing to do is to make sure it dries out. This usually solves itself so long as you are in a dry location, but if not I would take your camera to a local repair shop to have it looked at and fixed. It really does sound like a moisture issue however. Do NOT dry your camera using heat or anything! If it doesn't dry on it's own, take it to a pro to get it fixed.

Lost focus.looks 3d. red double. cant focus on red convergence.


This is a very common failure on Projection TV2_bing.gif sets.


  • 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 are some photos of convergence problems.1d5e2cf.jpg

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.

If you can't move them in all directions 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 solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.

This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing or you can call in a pro.

If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com.

Their kits include a step by step instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection 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 video.

Pic of a set that needs the fluid changed. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.
