    My problem is exactly the same as "roscoe79" has.

    I can´t adjust the convergence enough, my colours are still separated as 3D.

    Please advice what to do?

    Yes; I am having a similar problem. I did go through my owner's manual but the cross with red box around did not move with the toggle button. Any kind of help will be a great help.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Ross, This repair is quite easy, But before I tell you how to fix the problem I need to know have you gone in to the user menu & tried adjusting the convergence This will save time & expense for you ? If you havent then try this first it may sort it out without needing to dismantle the set. Let me know how you get on by either replying to this post or let me know via email Chris..

    Hi Ross

    Ok switch tv on. Press MENU.

    Now use the toggle button in centre of remote move it down it untill you get the green function menu.

    Now toggle the button to right LANGUAGE will light up.

    Now toggle down until you light up CONVERGENCE

    Now toggle to the right it will say RED ADJUST

    You will now have a screen with 9 crosses on it the idea is to get these crosses as white as possible with no coloured halo around it.

    Start on the centre cross use P up, P down, to move red part of cross up & dowm use volume + & volume - to move left right .

    Once you have got the red looking good eg no red halo just white cross press the toggle button up down left or right to move to next cross to be adjusted do this on all 9 crosses.

    Now press ZERO button on remote you will now be in blue adjust do exactly the same as you did with the red adjustment.

    Now press menu to store.

    Now move cursor down to PERFECT FOCUS using toggle button press toggle button to the right the set will now go automaticaly through the focus adjusting.
    Once thats done thats it.
    If picture now looks good its fixed.
    Let me know how you get on.

When switched on colours fine after short period colours seperate causing a 3d type effect

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

Rainbow colours on the screen

The projector is starting to go out in it. Depending on your financial situation, you can take it to a shop to have it looked at, or replace the TV. Depending on how long this has been happening, the Pioneer projectors usually last about 100 hours once this happens before they burn out completely.
