My dfaughter has the same problem. I looked up her TV manual on the internet.

You can download it on the above link if you don't have your manual. On page 25 of the manual it says to press TOUCHFOUCUS button on the TV once. The TV will enter auto-convergence mode and adjust convergence automaticly. That button is lacated to the right of the TV power button (you may have to flip open the cover door on the right of that power button). It will be the last button on the right.The TV has to have been on for at lest 30 minutes. When you press that button a screen will pop up with the words TOUCH FOUCUS. When finished the screen will have TOUCH FOCUS FINISHED. If an error come out press that button again.
This color convergence meens it will adjust the three red, green and blue colored light bulbs to converge together on the screen at exact precision to produce exact color. I have to admit I have not gone to my daughter's housr yet to do this. Good Luck to the both of us.

I don't know your model, therefore I will tell you genericaly what the problem may be.

There are many things that can cause this type of fault. The response of the video amplifier stages would have to be checked right up through to the output that drives the projection. it is also possible that there is a fault with the colour demodulator. If the set uses projection tubes it is possible that the tubes are weak, or there is dirt in the optics. Colour demodulation problems can also cause the colours to not be correct. Many models using tubes have an optical transparent cooling fluid in front of the tubes. This fluid may have to be changed.

Fuzzy picture and dark picture and color seperation when hot.


The colors seperating is a convergence problem, as far as being dim this may be related but the TV likely needs service adjustments.

convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Toshiba Rear Projection TV picture color is now a greenish hue


Hi, I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:  

http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=3229 

If you are not able to adjust the convergence using the remote you will need to replace the convergence chips. 

Typical Symptoms

1) Convergence menu does not work for one or more colors.  
Such as: Red moves up,down, but left or right fails. 

2) Screen is bowed looking.

If you have one or more of the problems above you need to replace the convergence chips. You can get a kit and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com  

Hope this helps :)

Have you tried the "Magic Focus" Button/Option in the Menu Setup Screen? If you have and it still is there, You Have a Burned out Color Tube. It is Cheaper to Throw it away and Buy a New one.
Good Luck..
