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.

Purchased Apple TV. TV does not have HDMI. How do we hook up to sound system?


Just use a normal stereo cable with the 3.5 jack ..take a look and see what kinda in-let has for sound in ..and use a cable ..It will take teh sound automatically or you will have to choose the port ..
If you use a VGA connection for image .this is kinda needed..For a euro-scrart will take the sound for the TV stations auto ..if you use a receiver ..The separate sound is only needed for to hook up a computer or a dvd player ..(for the last one use rca cable )

U can also use this rca cable for a computer if it has such a exit for image and use a jack to rca for sound ..in case it only has a rca in-let for sound ..

TV is blurry and the red and green look as if the picture is in 3d and I need glasses. Can I fix this myself?


There is almost nothing that can be fixed by yourself if your not trained in high voltages and advanced circuitry now days. This sounds like it could be your color guns going bad or the power supply.
This set also has an issue with The tv convergence board,require 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all it resistors to replaced to solved the tv convergence picture problems.

Picture looks like 3d i have ajusted screen but keeps going back to 3d and picture is bowed


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

The convergence box keeps going out.


this 3d effect is due to what is known as convergence.i work daily on these set in the shop. (thats a good testomony for these LOL) but the first question i ask is 1 in the customer setup do you have convergence option.. Next question is the picture bow tie looking and 3d. if you are missing the convergence option chances are it is the fl231 fuse. then you need to read the fl231 fuse under tips and tricks section of this website. Convegence is controled by three cuicit boards. if any of these need to be replace a technician may need to set or adjust the convergence back to faactory specs

56 inch rca hdtv


Good Day;

The RCA TV uses a different type of Convergence Circuit then most other TV's. There is A fuse next to the FLY BACK that opens that can cause this. If not handy call an Authorized Service Center, get an estimate. Cost avg $400.00 to $650.00 depending on your location and problem.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
