Blinking of the the LED (yellow and blue) at the front panel indicating that the lamp door cover is not seated properly. This cover will engaged to a micro switch giving the signal to the processor, once it is in open position, the unit will not power up and will experienced that kind of blinking error code. Go back to the lamp door cover and ensure that it is properly seat-in.
3D, 2D, red/green/blue ghost on the picture and letters means that the convergence circuitry gone bad. Symptoms is not connected to the light engine. The faulty parts is the convergence chips(IC). This chips are mounted on the large aluminum heat sink and starts with STKXXXX-XX (X means number). The most common STK chips used on Projection TV's is the STK392-110. You have to replaced them both on the board to resolve the issue(red ghosting). It is necessary also to check the resistance value of the resistors around its circuitry using the multimeter. For more info how to repair a convergence problem, watch the video below.

Poor picture quality, the picture is blurred and

You have problem with convergence. Have you tried adjusting in the users menu. This is a common problem in this type of TV, usually two convergence amp need to be replaced and sometimes sets of resistors are also to be changed.

Red band on flesh tones (50V500)

This is the first sign of a failing Red Picture Tube. Tubes will blur to the right when they get older. You can try to turn the screen control for the red gun down so the blur goes away. But eventually it will get worse.

Picture turns to red & green and becomes blurred.

This is likely solder connections cracking on your convergence ICs. If you can bump the tv and it goes back to normal, it just needs resoldering, but if it doesn't, then it needs the ICs replaced. If the convergence is out, you will see a bowed picture and the red, green, and blue will be separated. Worth repairing if you can find a company to do it affordably, I can help you repair yourself if you have disassembly and soldering skills.

You have a convergence problem. Go to the convergence menu or consult the owners manual on the convergence procedure and try to correct i if you can.. However if the red image is bowed and or not linear you will probably need to call a technician to repair your set. Most likely the red convergence output chip has failed. This is a common problem with all CRT ( picture tube) rear projectors. Good Luck. Happy Easter

Picture is blurry, but perfect sound

Sounds like a ground leg on the distribution block has loosened up and is not properly grounding the screen drive. worst-case scenario is that ione of the tubes (3 picture tubes) has started to short out and is causing the blur.
