If this is a RPTV set your convergence circuitry has failed. The cost of repair is usually $200 to $300. Or, if you are familiar with electronic repair you can fix it by yourself with a kit (search your model number for repair kit) which usually costs under $100 and takes about 2 hours of labor.

Hi i replaced my bulb for Sony VPLBW5 now i am not getting a clear picture anymore, its very distorted and something seems very wrong


Hi,

It's very unlikely that this is a due to a faulty bulb.

It's possible that there is a fault with the projector which existed before you relamped it, (i don't know the exact circumstances) but you could try the following steps

1) If the old lamps still works, remove the new one and replace it with the old one. fire the projector up and see what happens. If nothing happens replace the new one again, making sure you don't touch any glass parts (as it can shorten lamp life) or any other internal parts.

2) Turn the projector on and check the image with different picture sources and cables to rule out a fault there. Is the image distorted while the projectors warms up and displays the startup screen? If the image looks correct the problems is likely to be outwith the projector. If the startup image is distorted then the problem is likely to be with the projector.

You should ensure that the lens is free from obstructions. It won't make much difference in most instances but you could clean it with a soft cloth, taking care not to damage it.

Hopefully these steps will help you fix the problem.

Distorted picture.


Is the menu text clear on the screen, when it's focused correctly. Or is that also distorted.
If the menu text is OK then the picture signal is dodgy. could be due to a bad earth lead on the video cable.
Is it distorted on all signal inputs

Flatron w2043s 20" there is distortion on all letters and numbers etc, its as if its ran out of ink ,spoils the picture big time


The distortion mostly is caused by a wrong screen resolution. Choose another (smaller or larger) resolution and once you've found the correct resolution for your display card tne distortion will be gone.

My rear projection 51mp392h has color distortion on the bottom third of the screen,it curves up in the middle. Is this a picture tube


Hello tj444,

This is not a picture tube problem. This could be what is called pincushion distortion. It is caused when the is a malfunction in the deflection coils and the inability to correct for the curvatures caused by the CRT. The pincushion distortion can also be caused by the degradation of the functionality of the convergence amplifiers in the TV set. I would suggest that you have a TV technician examine the deflection circuitry and the pincushion circuit, this would also include the convergence amplifiers.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Viewing problems


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


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,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

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

*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
