    We just painted our bathroom with purple (lavender) toilet and sink a pale green (like a celery shade, not minty) and installed some crown moulding which was painted purple to "blend" in with the purple. It's a small bathroom and it needed some brightening up. It looks fabulous and we've received a lot of positive feedback. There are some paint company websites which you can take a picture of your bathroom, upload it and then experiment with the colors to see what looks best before deciding. We used Benjamin Moore's but I'm sure many paint companies have this.

The consensus here is a medium to pale/light blue - black or dark blue would blend better, but it would be one darn dark bathroom. You want something that blends, not accentuates the purple.

Hope this helps :)

We have a Sony wide screen projection tv model KP-46WT500 and the screen is now distorting and discoloring the picture across the top and bottom of the screen. The discoloring changes the picture to bright...

It sounds like a convergence problem--If you go into the customer menu and select convergence--if colors are bowed and or will not adjust:

The two STK-392-560 CONVERGENCE IC's that this set uses need to be replaced--their location numbers are IC8001 & IC8002.

They are located on two metal heat sinks with fins--and are black in color--2 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches tall and will have the full STK number printed on them in white.

Usually just both chips need to be replaced but there are some special fuses and resistors that protect them. A pair of the chips can be purchased on Ebay for about 12 dollars plus shipping.

The chips fail because a white grease to transfer heat from the metal back of each chip to the heat sink dries out and one or both overheat and fail.

If you or someone you know can do this repair you can save the set and a lot of money---most shops are going to get 300 or more for this type of repair.

These sets are dependable and other than this do not have many serious problems.

If you get someone to do the repair make sure BOTH chips are replaced or you will have the same problem again in a few months---lifespan of these parts is 5-8 years.

Color is off showing green and pink lines

If picture looks 3D, one of the two STK-392-110 OR STK-392-150 CONVERGENCE chips is bad.

The total parts cost for this repair on the internet is less than 25 dollars.

The chips are Black in color--2 1/2 inches wide X 1 1/2 inches tall with 18 pins each--usually located as you look from the back of the set to the right side on either one large metal heat sink with fins or two smaller heat sinks side by side--THEY will have the STK number printed on them in white.

If you are able to do the repair yourself you can save the set and a lot of money--you need to be able to get at the chips and un-solder and remove them and replace them and solder them back in.

There are some other things you may need to check also-most of the time just the two chips need to be replaced and the set adjusted--sometimes there will be a damaged resistor near them----if you attempt this I can tell you what to look for.

Consider that most shops get at least 300 for this kind of repair--if you get someone to do it for you make sure they replace BOTH chips or you are going to have the same problem again in a short time.

Color wheel replacement

With the back off of the unit, you are looking at a silver can on the light engine. The is the board where the DLP IC is located. There is a large heat sink right in the middle. Near that heat sink you will find a small square cut out where two pins protrude from the inner bd. There is a small black piece across those two pins, that is the jumper. With a needle nose slide that black jumper off of the two pins. Normally if the color wheel is changed and the jumper not remove the picture is very poor with ugly green and purple negative look.
