What is a good Microwave Leak detector - make  absolute measurements? Can a cell phone be used to detects leaks from Microwave ovens.?

I replaced two convergence chips the resistors were all fine. This took care of the 3D look. I also replaced the coolant in the blue and green although it was the blue which was badly contaminated. The picture is now clearer than before but I am unable to get color. I can see vibrant colors when I pull up the TV's menu. I can see the colors in the convergence menu as well but no color in the picture. The color controls only make the picture brighter or darker. It is sepia in color not black and white. What could this be?

Picture flashing, weak color. whenflashing stops

I have the same problem with a WD 73732. After about an hour fleshtones go blue / purple, and picture flashes. I gutted the set, and ran it on the bench, and found that a sensor on the color wheel (a small external board), acts up when it gets hot. Cooling the board fixed the picture. I'm going to try to find a replacement part, and then make vents in the color wheel cover so it doesn't get so hot in there.

No Red color at all. The convergence feature does not work either. Lots of green and blue RCA Model D52W59

Red color gun has failed, which will make the picture over saturated with the other two colors(blue,green) the bad news is the three color guns need to be replace in a set(all at the same time) because if you only replace the red it will over saturate the older blue, green guns then your picture will be mostly red.Unfortunently in most cases it's not worth the investment, better off to purchase a new tv. Good luck !

I have sound but no picture on the screen.. What did i do wrong

Hello sir, hi, please check the video cable. If you are using the three color audio/video cable, the yellow one goes to the yellow input of the TV to the yellow output of the DVD recorder. Then check the TVs audio video settings, the TV should be in the video channel, if there are several video channel, check where the video is coming in. Make sure that the yellow cable is good. you can swap several cables to check.
If your TV is component input, put the red green and blue wires to their respective color port, one end is on the DVD recorder, and the other on the TV. make sure your cables are good. Do the same thing with the S-video and HDMI cable. if your TV has this.

My componet/av only shows black and white on my vizio vp422

The 37" Vizio I just bought has a very confusing feature where the same input can be used as either the Y channel of the component or the full video channel for composite. If you plug a component source into the TV and then select the composite input ("AV" on the remote), you will see a black and white version of the full component signal (makes sense as the Y channel is just the luminance component). As sad as it is, I was stumped by this for a while until I happened to hit "COMP" and got full color. FWIW, the manual warns about this, but it really doesn't emphasize the point. I wonder how many returns they get because of this.

Yellowish monitor display

You have no blue gun transmission. Check your work around the tube and make sure you have good connections. Ohterwise it's in the blue gun circuitry.

Color of people's faces in movies played via DVD is now blue since connected to LCD TV

The reason the picture is blue on the DVD is because you have poor video cables running the feed, probably RCA yellow cable im guessing. Get some nice component cables for the DVD feed and it will fix you right up.

Sony bravia lcd tv-

If you are using a HD cable box or satelite with component outputs, be sure that all 3 cables ( green, red, and blue ) are making good connection.A loss of red or blue will cause color shift. Usually,if the tv menu comes up as the correct color but the picture dose'nt, it is most likely a signal problem.
