Sounds like a convergence problem. If you cannot fix the convergence through the convergence menu or if the picture or even one or two of the colors are pushed in on the side(s) or somewhat twisted it could be that your convergence chips have failed. I can tell you that the site that Jean posted will not fix this problem and could even make things worse. That site pertains to a specific problem that is common in some Sony sets and should not be used to try to fix any other issue.

Please keep in mind many things can go wrong with TV sets and you should really do a lot of research before attempting any out of menu adjustments and or repairs. There are high voltages present in some areas and they can reside even when the set is unplugged.

This link is for a Blog for a Sony but this technique works with bunch of different models. It has detailed instructions with pictures :D
Extremely Simple !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can't believe so many people are being ripped off by TV Repairs for
such a simple adjustment . Not to mention that none of these TV Manufacturers are adding this solution to their Manuls and websites....shame on them !

Wow, to the Guy Ken who posted this Blog.....He's a GOD !!!
He had over 400 comments posted with over 90% of them being Consumes with similar problems as you and me who saved their
TV with his instructions. This Blog will also cover other Screen Color Problems :)
Give it try, could save you big $$$$$$$$$ !
Hope this helped, and others who are looking for a solution :D

One might think that 3D would be a good thing but I am assuming that the problem is that it looks 3D without the glasses or in other words horribly fuzzy. If this is so you should be able to adjust the convergence in the set up menu to resolve your issue.

Does my Sony kdl55w829b 55 inch HD 3D Smart tv have a built in 3D transmitter to use with the active 3D glasses ? If so how do you activate 3D viewing ?


This TV has the active 3D transmitter built in to it in some regions. It is included for the model sold in the U.K.

You need to register the Active 3D glasses before they will work with the TV. To register the glasses, turn on the TV and bring the glasses within .5m of the TV. Then press and hold the power button on the glasses for 2+ seconds (until the power button blinks alternating green and yellow). When the registration is successful, a message will show on the bottom of the TV and the green light will stay on for 3 seconds. This will need to be repeated if you use the Active 3D glasses with another TV and then use them again with this TV.

Now you need to activate the 3D feature on the TV. Press the 3D button on the remote or press the control bar on the Touchpad remote and slide the touch pad to the 3D icon and select it. Then choose your 3D option. You may also need to adjust the 3D display settings from the Home button. Press Home and select Settings. Then choose Display and then 3D.

The manual for the KDL-55W829B is available here: http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/product/KDL-55W829B . The Help Guide, http://download.sony-europe.com/pub/manuals/tvhc/14HE468112-EN-Print.pdf , has the information on using the 3D feature starting on page 56.

I hope this helps.

I have a Samsung DLP HLN 5065W and recently the TV started to get Horizontal Lines in it with a 2 inch black horizontal line across the TV and the bottom half you could see the picture and the top half...


If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com

My tv went multi colored take it as it looks like a 3d television


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
