    Bright on the outer edges and red dominates the entire picture, did convergence, color and picture settings, no joy. Don't know if it's the red green and blue lamps or the board. This is a common problem but have been unable to find the fix

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 should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

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.

Blurry picture


With the back off and if you can get a small mirror above the blue and the green tube, look at the picture coming out of the tube. If it looks like you're looking through fog then you probably have contaminated coolant. Compare them to the red tube for reference because the red one is very seldom affected.

If contaminated, the fluid will have to be changed and the chamber cleaned out by someone that knows what they are doing.

Be careful reaching in there. Wear gloves to help protect your hands.

Popping sound and picture goes out


Sounds like the flyback or the picture tube. Either items can cause this. If the pop comes from the rear right side its the flyback. If the sound comes from the lower front behind the speaker grille its the tube. Let me know what you discover as I have access to any of the parts you would need.
