SOURCE: colors out of alignment; curved lines

this sounds like a convergence issue.. one thing you are going to want is a good test dvd.. avia - guide to home theater or video essentials are two very good ones. anything that will supply you with test patterns and let you pause on them will work.

you will need to get into the service menu, using your remote press DISPLAY, 5, VOL+, POWER in quick sequence. once the screen comes up you should have green letters and numbers at the top of the screen. at this point, keys 1 and 4 change the item, keys 2 and 5 change the category, keys 3 and 6 change the value, mute enters write mode, enter executes it.

you will want a test pattern displayed that has a center point, enter the pje section of the menu and go to tphp, if you don't see a crosshair, press 6. you are going to want the convergence grid and the test pattern displayed simultaneously, so press 9 until both are on screen. it will be a crosshatch pattern overlaying your test image. use the joystick button (left or right) to roughly line the crosshatch up with your test image.

now go to tpvp and use the joystick (up and down) to finish lining things up. once you are happy with the changes, hit mute then enter to save it to memory.

this next part is from a tweaks file in the public domain that i have for this model and use any time i am working on one of these.

How to Enter the Convergence Mode
Once you're in the service menu, you need to access the convergence mode. Press the 2 or 5 key until you see PJE in white blocky letters (you should be able to get there quickly by pressing 5 once or twice). Now press 9 on the remote. You will see a bracket appear in the middle of the screen. Press 6 and cycle through the different types of patterns until you get a white grid on a black background.
Controls
Once in the convergence mode (activated by pressing 9 in the PJE section), the buttons on the remote work differently. Keys 1 and 4 move the cursor around on the grid (convergence points) in a spiraling fashion. The joystick on the remote will adjust the position of the current color at that grid point. Key 3 cycles between red, green, and blue adjustments.
You may also depress the joystick, which will allow you to move the bracket freely around the grid. Press it again and you are back to being able to adjust the position of the current color at that grid point. Handy if you are just touching up an area and don't want to spiral through all the points.
How to Converge the CRTs
It's much easier to converge the set if you can see what you're converging. Green should be the color to converge to. The geometry (straightness of the grid) of the green CRT should be good enough - If you notice that some lines are definitely out of whack, you should straighten them.
We need to disable the red and blue CRTs. Press 2 until you get to the 2150P-2 category. Cycle through the items until you get to RGBS. Change the value to 2 (Green CRT Only).
Move back to the PJE category by pressing 5. You should be back at the grid with a green bracket - If you don't see one, press 3 until you do (the bracket may have been set on red or blue, which have been turned off). Navigate around the grid, correcting any obvious errors. Once you're satisfied, turn the red CRT back on (RGBS value of 6, Red and Green CRTs on), and return to the grid. Press 3 until the crosshair is red. Now, align the red to the green, getting as close as you can. By the way, not all grid points are selectable. Keep in mind that the edges of the screen will tend to be more out of focus, and harder to get "tight". Get it as close as you can. You also may notice that some points affect the position of other, nearby points. You'll get the feel for it after a short period of time. Now, do the same for blue, making sure to turn off red (RGBS value of 3, Blue and Green CRTs on). When you're all done, turn all the CRT's back on (RGBS value of 7, All CRTs on), and look to see the results. Touch up where it is needed (if needed at all).
I found the 100 IRE Crosshatch image really showed areas that still needed convergence. I would cycle within the PJE category (pressing 6) between the convergence grid (to fix errors) and the 100 IRE Crosshatch image (to view areas with convergence problems).
Save your convergence to memory by pressing MUTE followed by ENTER.
Remember, you need to do this for each mode you use - This doesn't mean for each input. It applies to 4:3 mode, 16:9 mode, and 1080i 16:9 mode (even though 1080i is a 16:9 mode, it requires its own convergence due to the higher scan-rate). Each mode is separate, and is saved separate, however, each one does tend to affect the other slightly.
Try not to use the Flash Focus. I know it's very easy to use, and they put it right there on the front of the set, so it basically begs to get pressed. But realize that pressing Flash Focus will rely on the sensors to converge your set - It will pretty much re-do all your hard work. It may get close, but it will never be as good as a service mode convergence.
Now that your convergence is done, you should re-register your new convergence to Flash Focus (FF). Ryan says below don't use Flash Focus, and I agree. However, if you do or someone else does, it shouldn't require nearly as much touching up if the new convergence is re-registered to Flash Focus. This is simple to do. While in the PJE category, press the Flash Focus button to initiate a re-registration process to the system. If the operation fails (I've never had this happen), press 0, followed by ENTER to restore the convergence settings you last saved. You'll need to investigate why it did not work. In the PJE category, change to item ERR and it should read a value other than 000 if your attempt at re-registering FF didn't work. If our attempt at re-registering did work, it should read a value of 000. Typically, reasons why re-registering FF won't work are due to overscan being reduced too much but there are other reasons too. Regardless, while you are investigating just don't press FF and you'll be fine.
I have read numerous forums regarding re-registering flash focus. Most say only re-register flash focus in Full. This is what I did. I only watch TV in Full mode anyway, so it worked well. I have read many people having troubles with other modes if they re-register flash focus in Wide Zoom mode so I can only say, read forums and ask questions if you do use your set in other modes before you re-register your flash focus in another mode besides Full.


hope this helps you,
trin

SOURCE: Akai PT5499hd that has suddenly lost color alignment

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

Canon MF4450 error code E202-00020


this error means you scanner is not going back to starting position which is the left side of the glass flat bed.

Try Restarting it a few times. If not try this.

Open your scanner and clean & lubricate rail.
  • Turn Off the Printer
  • Loosen the screws before you open Scanner
  • Clean glass lamp
  • Clean and Lubricate the rail.
  • It might also be off alignment try to gentle move it back to starting position. (be careful, you may strip something)
  • If you still get the error once you turn it back on then your sensor might be broken.

What part of bridge is the alignment track


alignment tracks are the part of a rotating bridge that is where the tracks meet back together , this requires an alignment rail or train might derail , as this joint needs to remain movable so there is a gap there , typically it looks like a third rail spaced just inside the outer rail , this grabs and guides the wheel "toe" and centers the wheel onto outer rail , this feature requires frequent maintence as it does wear , as was evidenced few years ago by a bulk train derail in Louisiana as this was exactly what failed after crossing was hit by barge and train derailed

The gun will fire the first time but will jam when i try to fire it again.


Assuming that the gun will not jam with nails removed and the driver returns to top of cylinder when fired without nails. If the driver is bent the nailer will jam without nails. Jamming is usualy caused by bent driver, driver tip worn (not square), or wrong nails. If the driver is not bent and the tip is square, suspect wrong nails. Easy test. Place a strip of nails on outside of rails with the nail heads aligned with top of rail. Move the strip of nails toward the nose if gun. With the heads aligned with the top of the rail, the first nail should align with the path of the driver. If the first nail does not align with the path of the driver and the head is angled slightly away from the path of the driver, the driver may strike the shaft of the first nail pushing the nails back into the rails. If the head of the first nail is forward with the nail shaft angled back away, the nail will flip causing jam. The first nail should align with the path of the driver to prevent jam. It is difficult to find perfectly made nails that align correctly. But certainly check the nails with test mentioned above with every new box for accuracy. You might find that you will need to change brands to get a good fit. Good luck.

Red haze at bottom of screen


Shut down the projector and allow time to cool before the lamp is taken out to be examined for any dis-coloration. If so the lamp needs to be replaced, try to test using a leased lamp to confirm Also check for shift in the alignment of the lamp settings and also the Lamp alignment.

Hello i have a mildly used FR350 round head framing nailer. the problem is that it will shoot two or three nails then jam up? thanks todd


This gun is very reliable unless tip is broken or miss-shaped and or wrong nails are being used. Depending on model # could be clip head or full round. For best results do not use generic nails because they are not the exact angle required. Place a strip of nails on outside of rails with nail-heads aligned with edge of rails. The first nail should align with path of the driver (place a straight edge alighed with path of driver). Most generic nails do not align correctly. Good luck
