55" big screen - Sound works great. Picture is not there. 3 color lines border screen and are brightest at the top. Color lines also look like they are warped towards center of screen. I do not have the remote and can not see menu after pushing "menu" button. Last owner said the picture was usually there but green in color.

    Previous owner said the picture was there but had a green tint that he couldn't adjust out. If memory serves me well, prior owner also said it worked for video games when hooked up to playstation2 console.

    Not HDMI capable. Has S Video. TV was manufactured in July, 1997.

    Is there a way to access menu without remote or, reset settings so menu is visible? The convergence symptom sounds reasonable but I'm no TV repair person.

Check ur hdmi cables......... if u have spare ones change it....... if the problem still persists we wud like u to get back to us with the make and model of ur projection tv

    have your power supply circuit board checked, there might be no supply voltage being given to the horizontal circuit board.... and also was there any lightning or electric surge when the tv was on?..... in that case there cud be a short or a blown cap insde the board..... projection tvs are known for their lethal voltages... so if ur not comfortable doing the job.. ask someone who knows something abt tvs to open the tv and look for potential burnt caps or loose solder connections...... always ensure the tv is unplugged before u open the unit....


    since u say the previous owner had a green tint in the picture.... The first thing I check for this problem when doing a service call is
    the screen control. It sounds like it needs to be turned down a bit.

    The screen controls are in the front of the set. Pull off the front
    speaker grill, you have to pull it off there are no screws and it's a
    little tough to pull. Remove the panel behind the speaker grill.

    The screen control is normally black with 6 controls. 3 controls
    labeled Focus and 3 controls labeled Screens. The center controls are
    for the green.
    Find the controls that are labeled Green and turn it counter clockwise until the black is not green anymore.
    If there is glue on the control, then, peel it off. You may have to adjust it a bit to get the right alignment.
    When the set is turned on, only use one hand inside the set.


    thank you for using Fixya and stay safe.....


    have a nice day and good luck

Sounds like you have cold solder joints, or solder joints on the mainboard which have cracked over time due to thermal expansion and contraction of the circuit board.

Repair is to find and reflow the cracked joints. You may want to consider hiring the services of a reputable repair professional to deal with getting your set back into normal operating condition.

In the meantime, stop using that TV in its current condition! Continued use in that state could make the problem worse or create new headaches that may only allow for a more expensive repair bill.

Double picture & color problem


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,Akai2_bing.gif,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...

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

How To Reset Your Mobile Phone


ohms_0.jpg
You can return your phone to its original state, as it was when it left the factory. This is also called a hard reset. You might want to do this if you are giving your phone to a friend or relative and you want to remove all your data first, or if your phone has a persistent problem that is not solved by powering off the phone and then powering it on again.

A factory reset is a drastic measure. It permanently erases all your personal data and customized settings, and also removes any programs you have installed. Make sure that you have backed up the information and files you want to keep.

As different phone models have its own reset procedure, view complete list here.

How To Find Motherboard Drivers


How To Find Motherboard Drivers:

Here is a real world example on Fixya.com of some one having a problem getting drivers:

Question:
I need drivers for my FC GIGABYTE 8vm533m-rz motherboad

That is a some what a perfect question, the brand has been given and the motherboard modal number has also been given, so finding the drivers will be a peace of cake !

First of all, always go to the makers brand website, in this case we would go to Gigabyte's official website located here

Next, go to support & downloads;
Then copy and paste the motherboard modal number ( in this case is 8vm533m-rz )
From there we can get the drivers, located : HERE
locate the bios update: HERE
and that crucial mobo manual we all seem to lose: HERE

And that's the very basics, the same method would be used for every motherboard. Mostly all manufactures are happy to provide the drivers and support software on there websites.

Hope this helps some one out there.

How to reset nokia mobiles life timer to ''0''


Nokia life timer is a counter that keeps track of the Total call time of your phone. It will show how much the phone has been used, and it?s the best thing to check if you?re planning to buy a used Nokia Mobile.

Here is a detailed procedure to make this life timer zero.


REQUIREMENTS:
The following files are required to reset the life timer:
  1. Nemesis service suite link: Download from Here
  2. lifetimer.pm file: Download Here
PROCEDURE:

4. Connect The Phone in ?PC Suite? Mode to the PC

5. Open Nemesis Service Software

6. Click on ?Scan for new Device? Button on Top right Corner

10. Click the ?Write? button on Below right, and open the Extracted lifetimer.pm file on your PC.
