Green wave-like color distortion over reds

When there are vividly colored red backgrounds on screen a green wave-like distortion appears over the picture. It seems to bend and distort the picture then goes away. It is quite large at times and has covered the whole screen. This only happens when the red background is bright, it never appears over more subtle backgrounds. When gone there is no residual effect left. HD picture still crisp otherwise. Help? KB

Re: Green wave-like color distortion over reds

Do you happen to have any speakers of any size within about 3 feet in any direction of the tv?? move them if so, I have large speakers about 5 feet from my tv at home and i still get some distortion once in a while with red and dark green streaks.

Why do i have a green screen after i turn the screen adjustment screw?

since every display color monitors are only work with 3 primary color which are red, blue and yellow. You could also search it that by mixing these colors, you could get any color your want. Thats how color monitors work. Now in case of green color, it creates by mixing blue and yellow. When you are turning the screen adjustment screw, the red color plug will become lose, makes it appear green.
I hope your got the reason.

I have a sony kp-53n77 rear projection tv i cleaned the lenses but i still have alittle to much red how can i clean up the color

Older projection set:

Not knowing exactly what it looks like I suggest two things: first in the menu look for convergence to see if it is off adjustment wise--it can be adjusted in customer mode to see if that helps.

Also either turn color all the way off (Black and white) to see what color the screen is with no color--if somewhat red you will need to turn the red screen control down--I can tell you where and how.

If screen is too red, red will be the prominent background color with color off or on.

Another easy way to LOOK is go to an unused video input---should only see "Input 1" for example in green and rest of screen should be black and not red to any degree.

Let me know with a comment here what you find.

The picture is a little distorted. Any numbers such as the channel or letters show up double and in two different colors.

There are two ways to do this
1) go into you menu and there should be a opportunity to align your color guns,
I found red was the outside square. Mine didn't fit right.
green/blue were crosshairs/
If done right the green/blue should merge and the red should fit your screen if they do not do that, then you need a service guy who knows how to physically adjust them.
I call in a guy and they are very reasonble. and what a difference

Color distortion

Move any speakers or electrical devices away from the set. It could also be anything electronic or magnetic. Anything near the set that generates a magnetic or electromagnetic field could be causing the distortion.

Color sudden change

Good day.
Your unit is still worth. It may be a caused of loose contacts along the circuitry. It can be remedied by resoldering the terminals particularly the chroma section and the crt circuit.
