Bad LCD controller, see sample here (note, I removed the cover off the board so you can see it): http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/LTV-32W3HD/

Be real careful when you remove the back cover, the side switch assembly is attached to the back cover, so do not yank it too hard!

After about 30-60 minutes TV starts to hum and picture gets distorted, could this be the color wheel...???


Sounds like a sync problem due to color wheel speed. clean and lubricate color wheel motor with tiny amount of Z-Max lubricant (liquid Buckey balls, available at Wal-Mart), on each bearing. make sure wheel is free-wheeling and turns easily. Should cure problem. If the color wheel is in good shape, there is a power supply problem, which may be due to dried out electrolytic capacitors or a regulator that's failing. Troubleshooting or controller board replacement may be needed. Regards.

Vizio TV has purple haze and colored stripes on the sides of the picture.


You possibly have a failing hi-voltage module or fly-back transformer going bad. If it has a fly-back transformer, It's not worth the trouble. Some repair shops will sell you a module. Call a repair shop for help.

projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

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 pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Samsung LE26R7 4BD, approx 4 years old, colour distortions


Check all of your cables on the back of the tv and your sources such as Cable,Sat box and DVD palyer to make sure they are fully inserted into the input and output connectors. Some times Component cables will work loose and you end up with a missing color. Temprature changes can affect intermittant connections. If that does work then you have a bad Main bd.

Color issues are harder to solve without seeing the problem. It sound like the red amplifier on the crt board is bad. Is there any red in the picture at all? If not, that will be you problem
