Panasonic hdtv has a blue hue to it

I've done what the manual says with the remote menu, but I cannot move the blue bar to the +. Is it worth fixing (2001 - 55") and how much might the repair be. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Well, it sounds like your convergence amplifers have died...

If you get it repaired, it is typically around a 300.00 repair.

or you can do it yourself if you have any repair or electronics knowledge - knowing how to solder is a big plus too. If you want to try it yourself, let me nkow, I will post instructions!

My Panasonic PT-61LCX65 has a broken screen...is it worth fixing? and can it be fixed?


No, don't waste time or money on a rear projection screen TV. Obsolete and expensive to move and repair. Move on to an LCD flat screen (with LED backlighting).

Fix convergence tv cost


Typically the repair calls for Replacing (2) STK-392-110 convergence IC's and usually 1 or 2 maybe more, baby blue 2.2 ohm resistors
then you have to manually align the 3 colors (red,green,blue)
with the remote in the menu or in the service menu!!!!

"touch focus error" appears when the test is completed. There is a double effect showing on the pictures and the words. What can be done to fix this?


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

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. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

Sony KP-53HS30 Projection TV has pink and blue hue w/timer blink


Depending on your TV, you may have a Color Temperature (Color Temp) and/or Hue setting in the menu. Use these options to adjust the picture to the setting that best suits your viewing preference.
If your TV has a Color Temp setting, you will normally have the following options to select from:
  • Cool: Gives the picture a cooler, slightly bluish appearance.
  • Neutral: Gives the picture a neutral, more natural look and appearance.
  • Warm: Gives the picture a warmer, slightly reddish appearance.
If your TV has a Hue setting, follow the appropriate step below to make adjustments:
  1. Move the setting to the right to reduce the reddish appearance.
  2. Move the setting to the left to reduce the greenish appearance.
