Question about Samsung PCJ522R 52" Rear Projection Television

Picture gets red, and shadowy.

Picture has red shadows. After about an hour of being on it went away. however it came back. it seems to be in and out all the time. Sometimes it seems like it gets a second picture about an inch below so if you look at a face it looks as if they have four eyes. Any ideas ?

Re: Picture gets red, and shadowy.

Sounds like a convergence issue. the conv. amps may need replacement. it.s best to hire a tv guy to make proper diagonostics and repairs.

Shadowing of picture

A shadowy or 3D image is caused by the convergence not being aligned. If your model has a convergence menu goto it and see if you can adjust the colors so that they are all straight and aligned. If so the 3d shadows will go away. If however it wont adjust the convergence has failed and would need to be to repair the TV yourself or with a company. Convergence repairs are common a fairly easy DIY fix.

Color adjust


Adjusting the picture tubes is a scary proposition, but since you have already done it...
The easiest way to balance the gray scale is to turn the color all the way down on the set. The next part is easier with two people if the screen controls are on the back of the set. This is the part you saw that has six small knobs on it. There are control for the focus of the red, gree and blue and for the screen level of the red, green and blue. You will want to adjust the screen controls in an effort to get the picture black and white (this is why you turn the color down), hence the term "gray scale". Just make slight adjustments, take your and be patient. It will take some time, but you will get your picture balanced back out in time.

Hope this helps!

Red shadows of words on screen of projection TV

you have to go into the menue, and go under video settings, under advanced, then into convergence, when you get the white lines all over the screen, follow the directions and adjust the red so it lines back up, other wise , take the front bottom panel off the tv, look for the 6 little nobs, look at the ones on the left, they should agjust the red, thrn the top one untill the red is focused back in.

Hardly any Blue Color in the picture. the blue tube is projecting darker and dimmer.

You need a Blue picture tube CRT you can get one for your JVC at the following link for a real decent price and they provide free shipping. Heres the link.

Shadowy images

Send me more information, but of what I understand from above, either convergence needs adjusting OR dusty mirror and lens behind screen.
